Sharon Rose said...

Hi there-slitty or slutty, I love this look, tres sexy and chic!!

WendyB said...

I love a side slit, or a back slit, but once had a very ugly photographic experience with a front center slit *shudder*

Savvy Mode SG said...

Definitely slitty and sexy. I have a few pieces with slits and it's very stylish.

MakeupByRenRen said...

slutty only if it shows the goodies lol

yiqin; said...

I think if you carry it off, it won't be slutty! I like them! Haha

MISS GLITZY said...

Love it but it's not for me... my legs aren't long and beautiful enough to show them in such a way.

Diabolina Da Fashionista said...

your titles kill me.

♥ fashion chalet said...

A slit can be worn with class, when done correctly. So, no, not slutty at all whatsoever. =]

thanks for the comments on my Collages/Polyvore and yes it's a new header. =]

Doll legs said...

Me encantoo Dsquared!!

Fashion Addict said...

I think slits are really sexy, but when they go all the way up there it makes the girl look a little slutty! But I definitely like the look!

Frieda l'écuyère said...

Westwood's coat is just amaziiiiiiing !

caroline said...

the slittier, the better! i'm excited for some warm weather so i can get my legs some air! hehe love this post!

Fashion Camille. said...

Make Do Style said...

Prada please! Plus costume nationale - slutty all the way!

Sweety P said...

Slits are so sexy and fun def. if you have great legs.

Fifi Flowers said...

Tres chic... tres sexy!!! And what is wrong with a little slutty... it never hurt anyone! ;)

Meg said...

Some of the looks are great, but I'm not so big on the double slits or the Elie Saab dress where you can see the model's underwear.

Siljesfashion said...

Love it! The Fendi and Valentino dresses are my favorites.

haylin said...

gorgeous dresses!

rossovelvet said...

It can be sexy, but not vulgary !

...love Maegan said...

depends on the bod it's on ...some would look slutty on me :( sadly

Kelly said...

haha, i found this skirt in my mom's closet yesterday with a zipper slit on it...it was so funky.
i think the double slit dress is very interesting...i kinda like it.

essandde said...

I love Dsquared2 dress! so sexy!

Trisch said...

Every girl needs to show a little leg from time to time. Who doesn't like to feel like Jessica Rabbit every now and again?

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Tha Elie Saab gown is downright scandalous, but I love it! lol The Tuleh gown is gorgeous as well. The blue Versace gown on the runway is so innovative--even though January Jones made me hate it at the Golden Globes. If you have the legs...go for it!

Sarah said...

great clothes, , i like a back slit very much. Looks amazing!

Sade said...

I think it all depends on how you wear the slit. Slits could be very sexy but not slutty.

LJ said...

i don;t mind the slits here and there, but the ones thay go up beyond the thigh like that dusty pink dress....not for me! hehhe
xx-LJ from SOS!

prettygeeky.com said...

Very impressed with those looks!

pipermadison said...

Oh my goodness, too many things that I love - can't list them all. Can I say that Elie Saab is perfection though?

closeup said...

love the eli saab and disquared2 dresses!!

Susie Bubble said...

Slitty slitty please!

Gabbi said...

i vote for slitty, such perfect attire... inspires me to dress better :) thank you cc. have a great weekend.xoxo

Camille said...

Adore! I'm looking forward especially to slitted legs and long tops flowing off one shoulder. Cannot wait until the weather permits.

shopinchic said...

As long as you are not showing anything that you are not supposed
to, skirt slits are perfectly fine.

My favorite piece is the Tory Burch skirt. I love how she
makes modern clothes sexy,
without being over the top.

AsianCajuns said...

Once I get my leg muscles toned then I'll be all for this trend ;). Until then I'm going to ignore the trend!

jamie clare said...

oh elie saab, why give someone another reason to show their thong strap?


teehee. i like slit-iness when it's done well, though!

Allison said...

I'm a big fan of slits - as long as they're not too drastic.
Though it does mean I'll have to spend even more hours on cardio so my legs can look fab enough to pull off this trend :)
Great post darling.

Girl Japan said...

Slitty.... I think it depends how you wear it... = )

Emily said...

I think most of them are quite tasteful! definitely not slutty!

clareassiral said...

slitty! nothing slutty about it. love the 2nd last dress, ultra cute!

Wana said...

Maison Martin Margiela’s double slit is hot!!
and jil sanders is insane!!

She's Dressing Up said...

As long as what is worn on top isn't too revealing, I love this!

Notion said...

so are you trying to become a model

Hemaly said...

All of these are to die for!

Underfunded Heiress said...

Slitty for sure!


Cool dresses! I think my favorite is the Eli Saab blush colored one. Or maybe that blue one too.

Calming Corners said...

I love it, hey if you got it flaunt it... my thighs have a mind of their own but they are getting under control!! I love the Emanuel Ungaro.

xo,
CC

drinkupthefashion said...

i'm liking this trend. the more leg, the better!

xs said...

nothing wrong with showing a little or a lot of leg.

The Seeker said...

I don't like my legs, I don't like my knees, so this is something I can't pull off :(

But I think it's soooooooooo sexy when wore in the right way.

xoxo

pipermadison said...

Hey Lady! Thanks for adding me to your Fashionista link list!!! I'm adding you to my "Blogs I'm Flirting With" list! :)

Little Bow Prep said...

The Emanuel Ungaro one is beautiful.

As for the trend- I like it, but I'm not so sure that it's the best for me.

Rockin' Rufus said...

I'm baack!

Rae- Sea of Style said...

I love the fedora and dress combo. Some how it make the dress seem a bit more.... clean.

Phil said...

As a transgender male, who is midway through my transformation to female, I must say the question of where the slit goes was a biggie. This site gave me some great ideas. Thanks !!
