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.
My Maxi Slit Skirt Style: Denim Jacket, White Tee & Converse
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.
Jacket – Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket, Shopbop. Another summer wardrobe staple, I wear this everywhere.
