Inspiring Style: The Slit Maxi

You would tell me to shut up if you had to listen to my inner monologue every day. It's ferocious. Inside I say things like:  
Why can't anyone drive in this city? I could go for some Triscuits right about now. Did my hair look like this all day? Oohh...that's a pretty skirt!

And speaking of pretty skirts, I've had slit maxi skirts (and dresses) on the brain for a while now. I think there are only two things that can quiet my urge: a) writing a blog post featuring my fave finds and b) actually purchasing one instead of just swooning over them.
So take a look at some of my picks!
 I love it as a skirt...I love it as a dress.
 I love it in bright colors...I love it in muted tones.
 I just love it and need to get my hands on it.
Which slit maxi is inspiring style for you today?

This trend was really big in India in the 80's ... I would look terrible with my chubby legs but its pretty sexy on all the leggy ladies!!!

If I did a slit, which I don’t think I would 'cause I'm self-conscious, it'd only be one slit. But it's a sexy way to show off some skin when you're otherwise covered!

Sam said...

Ohhh so much temptation in one post! All these skirts are so pretty, methinks you have to get all ;) the coral and green pairs are my fav, the colours are lovely and vivid.

sorelle in style said...

Oh my gosh I'm so obsessed with slits, too! In fact, I'm wearing a gown with a side slit tomorrow, and I can't wait! :)

Cheryl,

Sometimes I have the same thoughts lol ESP the one about the hair.

Loving the split skirts I wonder how it would look on me since I am a shorty :)

THE-LOUDMOUTH said...

Haha, it sounds like your mind goes a mile a minute -- kinda like mine! :) So many pretty colors in this post. I'll have to try this trend, I love maxi skirts!
