She Showed How Much Leg?! Tackling the High Slit Trend

By Thursday, May 21, 2015 0 Permalink

When it comes to dresses for spring and summer the “it” trend is the high slit. We’re talking high-apple-pie-in-the-sky slits. Forget showing off your toned (ha, pass me some oreos) abs with crop tops, the sexiest thing this season is to show a little leg. Thankfully there are a variety of slit dresses and skirts of varying heights so if you’re more comfortable showing a little knee than some thigh action then you’re in luck. Sometimes alluding is enough to say “yes, I do in fact have sexy legs”. Or you could literally expose an entire leg from hip to ankle. It’s all up to the wearer but I say, if you’re planning on wearing shorts or short skirts in summer what’s the difference? Just make sure you’re ready for it by prepping those legs.

If you need more convincing that a sexy slit is what you need in your life then let me tell you. As I perused page after page of dresses I noticed a lot of models hiking up their otherwise-modest maxi dresses to show off some leg. This amps up the sex factor of a usually unsexy maxi dress but also photographs better. But it also made me think of real life and how often I hike up long dresses while sitting because I want freedom to move around.

Well a slit is an even better way to let your legs escape. This is part of the reason why I love wrap dresses because there’s that freedom of movement and air flow. Although, have you ever had the wind blow just right and your wrap dress pretty much blows completely open? Yeah that’s not always fun and of course I’m never wearing quite the right underwear for it to be cheeky, just embarrassing. If you’re afraid of exposing too much try the seamless Commando Classic Girl Shorts and save yourself the face palm.
