Amanda Barker came up with the idea for the Halftee after cutting a few of her own shirts. She wanted to get rid of the fabric at her midriff, which wouldn’t be seen once she added a top layer. Amanda realized she was onto something, and today Halftees are available in a range of wardrobe-extending styles and colors.
If you’ve ever invested in what seemed like a great article of clothing, but it turned out to be less ready-to-wear than you thought, a Halftee might be just the thing to make it more wearable. It’s also a quick way to make your favorite clothes more versatile. If you have a top or dress that’s a little too revealing for business attire, you can cover more skin with a Halftee. You can take a sundress from summer to spring by adding a sleeved Halftee under it. Voila, no more bare shoulders.
A Halftee stays put, and it hugs your body in the right places so you’re comfortably contained. There are no tags, and it’s reversible so you can play with different necklines to get just the right look. It’s a hardworking tee that gets the job done with half the fabric.
