The slit is back with a vengeance. Ever since Angelina started wearing them, designers can’t stop showing off their expertise for designing the perfect slit. The slit has come a long way and today I plan on featuring slits for the everyday gal.
This pink maxi allows you to keep a lot to the imagination, but also exudes a pop of sexiness because the slit will make you reveal some leg action. I guess this is why I chose to feature it. It’s got a round and conservative neckline but is offset by its bright pink color. I like the fact that it is appropriate for many functions but still allows you to be bold, beautiful, and playful.

Do you need a sassy red skirt with a sexy slit for Valentine’s Day? This form fitting pencil is appropriate for all ages and body types. The material is very forgiving. You can pair this with a tight top if you are feeling in the mood for cocktails and dancing, or you can pair this with a loose fitting top for extra breathing room for the 3-course dinner. Pair with strappy stilettos, or try some with fringe to add personality to the look.

Finally I recommend you check out this basic black long skirt with a slit. This is a piece every gal should have in her closet. You can literally wear this dressed down with booties in the cooler weather for a grungy look, or transform this into a flashy evening outfit. The fact that it’s a skirt allows you to change your vision and execute your preferred look. My favorite part would be pairing this skirt with bold or a patterned crop top and pointy shoes.
