Sexy With A Side Of Slit: Dresses And Skirts To Make Your Seasonal Wardrobe Transition!

Even though ‘Raindrops on roses… and warm woollen mittens’ are a few of my favourite things, what’s even better is the hint of spring in the air. Yes, it’s mid-February. That means the flowers are in full bloom, and it’s not abnormal to be scarfing down a tub of Baskin Robbins all by yourself anymore. It also means, the pure wool coats and extra warm jumpers can go back into hibernation - skirt season is almost back and I’m more pumped than an insomniac on red bull. And even though it isn’t completely time for skimpy skirts and dresses, it is time to switch to a transitional wardrobe. Speaking of which, skirts and dresses with a slit detail are pieces you need to add to it, stat. From shaking a leg to downing a peg (or two), I’ve narrowed down 10 side slit skirts and dresses that make waiting for spring a lot easier, and of course a lot more fashionable. Here they are:

The Egyptian Goddess

Not your average cocktail dress, this plain white midi dress = modern day Cleopatra feels. While the thigh-high slit steals the show, don’t miss the draped collar and exceptional tailoring. Accessorise with a rose gold cuff and matching skyscraper heels.

Gangsta Wrap

This sporty skirt will get you in touch with your inner Beyoncé and don’t you know it. If that daringly high slit is a little too risqué for you, improvise with a mini bandeau skirt under this one and you’re set. Club with a cropped tea and ankle length boots to finish.

Another 80s comeback, striped side panels are a detail you need in your wardrobe all year ‘round. Zara keeps up with the street style trend and brings you this ankle length sweat skirt.
