Legs for Days

 

 

 

 

Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, you’ve finally got a chance to show some skin without freezing your…legs…off. One trend that I’ve noticed is the high-slit maxi skirt, and I’m really liking it. The addition of a high slit on a floor-length maxi skirt will give you a sultry vibe but also a relaxed look. The subtle twist of exposing a little leg can easily be transitioned from day to night. Try pairing the skirt with a tee or simple tank top for the day, or a sheer chiffon or bold-patterned top for the night.

Since attention will be drawn to your legs and feet, feel free to be creative in your choice of footwear. Flats or sandals might be the best choice for daytime, and ankle-strap heels or wedges might be a fun choice for nighttime. What’s important is that you’re comfortable, especially if part of your maxi skirt is long enough to reach the floor. If you choose to go with a high heel and aren’t the best walker in heels, I would recommend wedges or a chunky heel simply because they will offer you more support.

What’s great about thigh-high maxi skirts is that they can be worn for casual or dressy events. You can look elegant in black, edgy in obmré, or summery in coral. So don’t be afraid to flaunt those killer legs and try out some of my top picks for the season.
