Trend Alert: The High Slit

When the weather gets warmer, the slits get higher. This season I am seeing a lot of ultra high slits on jersey dresses and maxi skirts and I have to say, I’m loving it! It’s important to know what part of your body you like to accentuate and if your part are your legs then this is the trend for you! I love the idea of the high slit maxi dress because it reveals a little bit of skin but not too much. There is a fine line between classy sexy and just trashy. My rule for this kind of stuff is to cover the top if I’m showing the bottom part of my body. Whether it fits in your style or not, you should try these sexy dresses for a night out with your girls, date night, or even a concert night.

See below for some looks!

The Velvet Trend

While shopping and strollin’ in Soho yesterday my friend and I noticed a trend that we were a bit unsure of. Velvet. Some love it and some stay far away because it has the potential (ill-fitting) to not accentuate your body in the best way. One of the most important things about a luxury velvet fabric is fit. It’s truly supposed to be form-fitting to accentuate every curve rather than loose where it looks like you are wearing a velvet curtain.

While I am not a huge fan of velvet, I like to incorporate it in small doses. Sometimes trends are not fit for every woman, we each have different styles, different body shapes and we should marry them with the trend that we like and that fits us. Instead of following a trend, let the trend follow you. Here are some finds that I personally like and might inspire you to give velvet a try!
