Give a high-thigh

Belinda Dzattah

Slits in outfits is not new but it seems sky-high slits have been dominating the red carpet in recent times. And sometimes, it is not just a single slit but double ones too. While others may not be bold enough to bear that much flesh, others just know how to rock it well.

Whether it’s worn in the form of a maxi dress, floor-length skirt, or full-out evening gown, a sky-high slit is one of the simplest ways to add some sizzle to your outfit as these bold ladies have done here. They are not only showing off some skin but they sure do appear gorgeous in these thigh-high dresses.

Leg-baring slits gained popularity in the 1970s — designers like Halston, Ossie Clark, and Givenchy celebrated the female form by cutting out a sliver of fabric, letting the wearer show a little gam while still leaving a bit to the imagination.



So be bold and embrace this trend as you take sexy to another level in a thigh-high number.
