How to Wear Slit Dresses & Skirts | Casual Spring Style

Slit dresses and skirts can be tricky to work into street style, but if worn right, they can look sexy yet effortless. Here are 7 ways to wear slits in Spring!

Hey gorgeous! Hope you’ve been keeping it stylish this winter. I’ve created a whole new page for all Winter 2016 stuff – including celeb-style, jewelry, makeup, hair, fashion trends and much much more, so do check that out: Winter 2016 Fashion Trends.

These last couple of seasons, we’ve been seeing lots of slits – both on celebs and on the runways. I’ve included multi-slit skirts in our Ultimate Shopping Guide for Fall Winter 2015 2016, front-slit skirts in our 15 Must-Have Fashion Items for Spring 2016. Slit dresses are featured even on our 15 Must-Have Fashion Items from Pre Fall 2016 Collections. So the trend is pretty big.

From multi-slit slashed skirts, to double slit dresses, to front slits, the major trend in 2016 has evolved to high slits – thigh grazing and even dangerously high 😉 It’s easy to wear high slit dresses at nightclubs and parties, but it gets tricky to wear them casually because of their ‘too-sexy’ factor! If you think you’re not sure how to pull them off in street-style, here are some runway and celeb-inspired no-fail ways!

7 Ways to Work High Slits in Spring Street Style

#1: With Patterned/ Lace Tights

If high slits are too much leg-showy for you, just add a pair of tights. Statement tights in patterns and lace are going to be very trendy in 2016, so try striped, floral patterns or starry tights!

#2: With Over-the-Knee Boots

If you want to show some leg but not too much, over-the-knee boots make great pairings with high slit dresses. They look sexy and are a great way to wear slits in the cold weather. Here are some black thigh-high boots with slit dresses:

#3: With White Sneakers

If you wanna wear high slits without the overtly sexy factor, pair them with a pair of white sneakers. They’ll make your outfit instantly casual and wearable. Whether you wanna run errands in style, or wanna go out shopping, this will be your perfect outfit!

#4: With a Tee

Another way to wear a slit skirt casually is to pair it with a basic, neutral tee. Add a cross-body bag to make it look even more effortless. Sounds like a great brunch outfit.

#5: With a Slouchy Sweater

If you have a high slit skirt which is tight and sexy, and you want to work it in a casual daytime outfit, pair it with a slouchy sweater. It’ll bring the cool factor. Great for a lunch date or outing with friends. Got a date in the evening? You can even wear a slouchy sweater over a high slit dress for a day-to-night outfit transition.

#6: Monochromatic

Monochromatic outfits elongate the frame, making you look taller. So if you wanna look slender and sexy, wear your slit dresses with matching jackets, or shoes.

Or pair a slit-skirt in a tonal color – like shades of white or black – with a top in similar color.

And of course, denim on denim is a hugely popular trend for 2016! So try a denim slit skirt with a denim shirt or jacket.

#7: With a Crop Top

If you wanna look unabashedly sexy, go ahead and pair your slit skirt with a crop top. It’s great for casual parties or early evening dates.
