Oh Hey Ya'll!! It's been a while since I've worn a maxi skirt and especially one with a thigh high split! I remember this trend making it's appearance in 2014 and I'm pretty positive years ago before that.
The beauty of a side split skirt is the split itself! It can be off to the side, right under the tush (back of the thigh), or low in-between the thighs. For this trend which I've been seeing at stores such as Charlotte Russe as well as others, the slit is off to the left...but wait! There's more! There is a secret mini skirt right under...which gives you just a bit more coverage. I wouldn't have been comfortable wearing a skirt without this mini skirt underneath. I would of thrown under a pair of tights had a mini skirt not been there!
See how I styled it for Spring below!
To me, Spring means light colors such as whites, pastels and neutrals. Why not make "nude" your Spring color this season?
I purchased this white sleeveless blazer from Express a year ago, which I wore to the Revamp the Runway Fashion show. I styled it with white shorts and some ankle strap shoes at that time. Investing in solid colors such as white in anything will go a loooong way as far as mixing and matching pieces in your closet. I will most likely style this blazer another 5 million times!
One of the secrets of a long and delicate maxi skirt, is that it makes you look longer which in turn makes you look taller. So if you want to add extra height to your 5'5 frame....go for a maxi skirt! There are all kinds out there, but one that goes straight up and down versus outward...is the way to go to add height! How tall do I look in this pic? :-P
Color scheme: White, Nude, Gold, Silver and Dark Brown
You can add a corked wedge, flat sandal, or nude heels such as these from Jessica Simpson to dress up the look.
By the way??? Have you all heard of this half up-half down bun hair trend? I thought it would look cute with this look so I tried it myself! What do you think? :-D
