1970s Backless Nylon Jersey Tropical Halter Dress

There is just a certain cut and line of a seventies halter that once you find you look for variations of it endlessly. This is that dress. It is super chic and one of those easy to wear pieces that you can just throw into a suitcase and it works for day or night and at the beach, the country or the city and you always feel like a million bucks in it. The nylon jersey means you can wash and wear it and it is virtually wrinkle free. It's got a element of sexiness too it with that low bare back but with a bit of a bohemian vibe thrown in. The front is cut high up around the neck line and curves around with plunging sides. This leaves the back virtually bare and it is cut low and deep so you get a sexy expanse of skin. The supermodel length skirt cascades to the floor in a widening sweep of jersey and there are yards and yards of fabric in there. The fact that the print is an explosion of bright, almost neon, tropical blooms is just bonus. Excellent condition.

It has a double layer of the jersey through the halter and the skirt is unlined. It hooks to close at the back neck and zippers at the low back waist.
