Shraddha, Janhavi And Other Celebs Are Flaunting Them Legs In Gowns With A Thigh-high Slits. We Love

By  | 

Fashion trends may come and go but a slinky gown with a thigh-high slit is a forever favourite. The sexy cut-out reaching your thigh can give any boring dress a sultry spin and make it a tad friskier (and ahem, riskier). However, the daring fashion option isn’t just limited award shows and other red carpet events. In fact, they are earning their keep as a versatile piece in celebrity wardrobes. We have seen them wearing it for promotions, date nights and shoots. You could say they are the mellower versions (still sexy though) with minimal embellishments, body-hugging and flowy silhouettes instead of the poufy skirts and deep and subtle colours like blacks, blues and greens.   

We recently saw a lot of celebrities sporting some flirty numbers featuring the best and boldest thigh-high slit that convinced us to show them off gams too. A quick scroll through your social media feed would tell you how these gowns are taking over, for real. 

Why we love this trend

For one, this is a trend that fits the bill for fashion minimalists and maximalists alike. While it is daring and an obvious head-turner, the split also makes for a fail-safe detail that adds an uber-stylish spin without making you look overly flashy. In other words, the peek-a-boo detailing in a gown lets you show off some skin and leave the rest for imagination. Secondly, it’s a classic style that the word ‘glamourous’ is synonymous with. There’s a reason why this is a style trend that keeps popping up time and again. Chic, modern and super stunning, this is no less of a show-stopper.    

How you can sport it

Opt for flowy, floor-length gowns, skirts or body-hugging silhouettes with a side or centre split. Team it with thigh-high boots to channel the modern-day femme fatale look or go with high heels for the red-carpet glam. Plus, we think this also makes for a great option for modern brides to wear on their bachelorette or cocktail. I mean, nothing says sexy better than a bold slit that shows off your leg. For a family cocktail, though you can go for a lower slit and still look bomb.

Shraddha Kapoor’s outrageously high slit on the side that goes up her thigh and beyond has convinced us to live life dangerously, fashion wise of course. The sultry velvet gown is something that the phrase ‘dare to bare’ doesn’t even begin to cover.

All slit gowns don’t have to be skimpy or poufy but they all still look glamorous. As we said, this trend has become pretty versatile and there are so many options to explore. Take Alia’s flirty gown for example. It has a cool pastel colour palette, flowy silhouette and dreamy look altogether. Something brides can consider for their cocktail party!

If you are a fashion minimalist and trying to test the waters with the risky trend, this is for you. This could be your usual date night outfit, a black, bodycon gown with an added feature–your bronzed legs peeking through the slinky fabric.

Okay, time to hit the gym and stop skipping leg days!
