Tips on wearing slit dresses

  • Aim to achieve a classy and elegant look.
  • Maintain your modesty, less is more.
  • Avoid looking tacky
  • Since dresses with slits attract attention to the legs make sure your legs are well moisturised
  • Show one leg at the time if the slit is high (we’re not talking about over the top thigh high slit here) and two legs for normal slits. If you decide to show your pins let other parts of your body be covered unless you’re an exhibitionist.
