High-slit skirts have taken the center stage lately, and most attribute it to the years-ago, gam-baring fiasco of Angelina Jolie. Although its inspiration was a fashion faux-pas, one thing is sure: high-slit skirts are stylish and sexy! Even if you don’t have the perfect legs, you can achieve this style by minding the following tips:
Simple is Best
The high-slit skirt is the eye-catching piece in your wardrobe, so don’t take any attention away from it! Balance the look by pairing your skirt with a simple top (such as a plain white tee.) Wear simple accessories – keep your statement accessories in the closet for the meantime.
Make it Work
What’s great about high-slit skirts – especially those with not-so-high openings – is that you can wear it to work as well. It’s just a matter of adding formal panache to the look. Since the slit can be sexy, pair it with a conservative top, such as button-down dress shirts.
If the slit is too high, it’s still work-worthy. Just make sure to wear tights underneath for a respectable look.
High-slit skirts are definitely versatile, as you can wear them for formal events too. You don’t have to bend over backwards for a gala or nighttime event, as all you need to do is pair your high-slit maxi skirt with a lace, bejeweled or embellished top.
It’s All About Layers
This fall season, the key to wearing high-slit skirts without freezing yourself is stylish layering. For example, wear your favorite crop top or button-down shirt with a wool cardigan. As for your legs, go for nude tights or opaque ones.
Choose a Crop Top
For a laid-back day look, pair your high-slit skirt with a crop top. Although this pairing might show too much skin, it is just a matter of imbibing an air of elegance and sophistication.
Be Heavenly in Heels
As with any skirt ensemble, the best way to look sexy with a high-slit skirt is to wear it with heels. Although color-coordinating your footwear with any of the colors of your outfit is advisable, you can go all-out with a pop of color.
Fact: You can be fashionable in high-slit skirts even if you do not have modelesque legs. Achieve a runway-worthy look by following these tips on how to wear high-slit skirts.
