Slit dresses and skirts are a rather classic formal look and have been a sexy styling detail since the old days. While the thigh-high slits may resonate on the red carpet, in real life. You can take a lot of thrill for your fashion buck with a more proper slit that’s not quite so dramatic. Here are few tips to help you feel classy when wearing a slit dress or skirt.
All you have to do is imply a little skin, not reveal it all.
The idea of the slit is to look sexy, but just a small slit is all you need to make people’s minds whirling. The last thing you want to reveal when you sit down is the leg of your foundation wear, so ensure that body-shaping gear is suitably out of range of the slit.
You can also wear a hose or tights if you’re not feeling comfortable going out with a slit.
If you think the slit is too high, don’t worry because you can stitch it up a bit for more coverage. Moreover, go mild on the rest of the look by wearing a simple top and jewelry that doesn’t distract much and let the slit take center stage. Don’t forget to wear a pair of higher heels that will make your legs look longer with the slit.
