Designers unanimously decided that legs were the new erogenous zone of the season. Skirts and dresses were suggestively sliced up to there, in an array of tantalizing fabrics like jewel-toned velvet at Balmain, shiny crocodile at Emilio Pucci and sumptuous satin at Imitation of Christ. However, not all of these slit skirts screamed va va voom; a pretty pastel frock at Jil Sander with narrow double slits was a perfect example of polish, while a lace skirt with a side slit completed a quirky look at Rodarte.
If you want to jump on this trend for fall, I suggest signing up for some Pilates classes, pronto. But while a gorgeous set of gams is a necessary element of this look, please leave the Angelina Jolie pose at home.
