When you’re looking to look a little bit sultrier than usual, what do you go for? If your answer was “anything with a slit,” then you’re in the right place. Over the past few years, slits have almost faded away from the public eye, but ever since Angelina Jolie wore her iconic dress with a slit, they’ve been everywhere again. If you’re looking to channel Angelina Jolie with your next outfit, these dresses and skirts are sure to get the job done. No matter what outfit you’re trying to create, you’ll find some fun and unique inspiration from this list.
1 Emma Watson’s Ensemble
I’m not usually one for slits, but I love everything about this look. The halter-top is so chic and sophisticated, and the slit is noticeable without being too in your face. In fact, I think that you could even hide the slit if you felt uncomfortable or overdressed at the event you’re at.
2 Red with a High Slit
I think that this would be a gorgeous look for Prom! It’s so sophisticated but so grand and sexy for a fun night out, especially a huge night like Prom. It’s perfect for that event where you want to go bold with a little leg!
3 Deep V
This dress is so perfect for any occasion. It can be worn as a sundress on the beach, on a night out during vacation, or even for a bigger event. The deep v-neck and slit add drama to the look that you can either play up or down depending the occasion you plan to wear the dress to.
4 Long Sleeve with Some Leg
If you like to have a little bit of balance when it comes to your overall look, this long-sleeve look is for you. It balances out your exposed leg with long sleeves while also looking so chic and fashionable. If you want to try out the slit trend but are a little wary about showing that much skin, a dress like this is just right for you!
5 Ethereal Chic
I love the gauzy and breezy look of this skirt, and paired alongside the high slit, it’s a perfect blend of girly and sultry. If you love the relaxed look of the tulle but want to add some spice to your look, this beautiful, full skirt with a slit is perfect for you.
6 Wrap Skirt
This wrap skirt is the perfect summer look. I personally love the ruche effect on the hip. It reminds me of a cover-up or something you’d see Shakira wear onstage. If you’re looking to channel your inner Colombian goddess a la Shakira, this is definitely a look to try out.
7 Zoe Saldana’s Powerful Look
A lot of people think that wearing a dress or skirt with a slit automatically equates to trashy. This look disproves all of those theories, though, at least in my opinion. The two-toned gray is classic and chic, and the slight slit in the midi-length pencil skirt screams professional with a little spice!
