Elevate your Maxi Skirts and Dresses with a Slit

Think a long skirt is a completely conservative look? Think again.

Leg slits have been ubiquitous this season and adds a risqué element to your outfit if you’re feeling a little too covered up. This look isn’t just for the daring, though — subtle skirt slits are great for those who want their look to make a statement, without revealing too much. Our options below feature both subtle and bold slits on maxi dresses and skirts perfect for the final few weeks of summer.
