I’m a big fan of high slit dresses for formal occasions or high-end dining. Slits can add an eye-catching and alluring touch to any dress that would otherwise come across as basic or boring. The key is to find a dress with a slit that is strategically placed so it elevates your ensemble, flatters your figure, and makes your legs look longer.
A well-placed slit should reveal just the right amount of leg for your personal body type. For me, I have long legs and a short torso so I like to wear ankle length dresses with slits that sit a few inches above the knee. You will have to try on a few dresses with various slit lengths to figure out what works best with your body. In my opinion, the higher the slit, the more dramatic and visually striking the look.
When worn right, the style can offer the perfect balance between elegance and seduction. But, just like anything, you don’t want too much of a good thing; make sure you don’t give everything away with a slit that sits too high. The goal is to elevate your outfit, make a lasting impression, and be a little flirtatious all at the same time.
