Trend Spotting – Show Some Thigh This Spring

Altuzarra SS14 Slit Skirt Trend
By Roxanne  /  April 25, 2014

Inspired by Altuzarra’s Spring 2014 thigh baring collection, showing some skin has never been more stylish. It’s easy to see why. Lightweight fabrics make for breezy comfort in the warmer temperatures and the asymmetrical lines are super flattering. Receiving the celebrity stamp of approval from the likes of Rihanna, this is one trend that is hot for summer.

How To Wear?

This is a versatile trend that can be both formal and casual. The most flattering slit on most women ends mid-thigh (look for ones that feature zips or ties that can be adjusted to suit your body). Not appropriate for the office? Choose skirts that are made of slightly heavier fabrics — think leather or neoprene — and that feature a slit that ends at the knee or just above. High-waisted styles are always flattering with this trend. As a rule of thumb, short, figure-hugging skirts are formal; loose, flowing skirts are informal. However, adding a well-fitted blazer or crisp white shirt can go a long way in taking your maxi skirt from boho to boardroom. Plus, the longer the skirt, the higher the heels…
