Surprisingly Wearable Spring & Summer Trend: Maxi Skirt with a Dramatic Slit

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

When summer hits, I’m all about skirts. Since I’ve never been much of a shorts wearer, I practically live in skirts all summer long. They are by far the most essential item in my summer wardrobe. SO, naturally I look at A LOT of skirts every spring, and this year it’s all about the slit skirt trend. From midis to maxis, and high-low hems to wrap skirts, this ultra-flattering silhouette is EVERYWHERE. It’s also one of the most surprisingly functional and easy-to-wear trends of the summer. The thing I love most about this trend is how many different ways there are to wear it.

Whether you’re keeping it casual in sneaks and a tee, dressing it up for date night with pumps and a clutch, or going vacation ready with strappy sandals and a wicker bag, the slit skirt can take you where you need to go. Don’t let the idea of a dramatic slit intimidate you — there are so many length and style options — from demure and classic to thigh-high glam.

I styled my dramatic slit skirt with a plain white tee, a denim jacket and Converse for a day at the outdoor market.

Outfit Details

Skirt – (Similar style, same brand) BCBGMAXAZRIA Asymmetrical Wrap Skirt, 50% off on Amazon. Although my skirt is sold out, there are several very similar ones, like the BCBG one listed here, which I actually LOVE because it’s a wrap skirt. I’m also totally OBSESSED with Free People’s Lola Midi Skirt; it’s a super-similar midi skirt option. I have it in my cart in brown and it’s gorgeous. For my petite friends, midi skirts are a great way to go — they give you the same look without swallowing your frame.

Tee – Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee, Nordstrom. An affordable essential tee that comes in eight different colors.

Sneaks –  Converse Shoreline Slip-On Sneakers, Nordstrom. By far my most-worn shoes in the spring and summer.

JacketLevi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket, Shopbop. Another summer wardrobe staple, I wear this everywhere.

    This post is perfect timing for me! I love skirts for spring and summer and I just received the Madewell stripe overlay skirt in the mail yesterday. I was already planning on wearing it with a white T, sneaks and denim jacket just like your photos above! I like how these skirts can be casual for day wear and then dressed up for evening.
