Thigh-High Slits: Fashion Do or Don't?

Remember when Angelina Jolie's leg turned into a meme because she made it so ridiculosly prominent during the Oscars this year? Who'd have thought it would come back into style just a couple of months later? Thanks to Emma Stone, Victoria Beckham, Kate Middleton, and several models, the thigh-high slit is a spring smash.



According to WhoWhatWear, the thigh-high slit was first popularized fashion designers like Givenchy and Ossie Clark in the '70s. However, this latest round is pushing the boundaries a little bit. Polish model Anja Rubik wore a slit so high, you could see her thigh bone. (It still wasn't as outrageous as Jolie's leg-a-thon.) So what do you think, fashion do or fashion don't-even-think-about-it?

    How about showing

    a little modesty, dignity, and class,

    for a change, instead of flesh, and bone, and stupidity ?

    Depends on the woman but that one in the white mishappen bandage is just trashy. And she's too thin-looks like her hip is broken

    It depends on the person. If its a flabby person with cottage cheese legs then no, don't even think about it.

    Do if you have the legs for it. But if your legs look like Jolie, keep them covered.

    If you got it - I think it's ok to flaunt it - She probably wouldn't like right working in a steel mill dressed like that..but..she's in Hollywood probably on some red carpet - it's appropriate and even expected and she looks good.

    As long as you don't show too much, I say Do. One of my prom gowns had a slit, but admittedly that was many years ago, lol. I don't think that I'd wear a gown with a high slit again.

    Don't laugh too hard, lol...it was a very long time ago!

    slit admittedly years lol wear gown high slit laugh lol

    Actually, it depends. Angelina J pic that some one posted is nice & classy. The Woman in the white is a bit over the top. I really don't think seeing a skinny a$$ pelvis is sexy.

    I have always loved to wear this kind of skirt, it looks so classy and sexy ! It looks beautiful.
    I don`t like the look of the white dress though, nice leg and nothing against the model but the dress is so ugly to me.

    When done correctly, a thigh-high slit in a dress can be very pretty.

    But Angelina Jolie looked ridiculous. She was too obvious, the way she stuck the leg out. --And that model who showed her hip bone, also looked terrible.

    If you got it, flaunt it! Because it will not last forever.... :)

    Editing and adding in since just seeing pic above... yikes. To me... that is just a tad too much. A sexy dress that shows the THIGH..... sure why not? But this? Sorry.... but ick. Poor thing looks like an emaciated mannequin... honestly.

    How about letting people do what makes them happy without automatically assuming they're stupid for it? Because, you know, showing a bit of leg is a GREAT insight into someone's IQ.

    Not.

    No assumption there ~

    someone from showing thier leg ?

    NO ~ Just said it was stupid and unnecesary !

    NOW, how 'bout YOU let ME have my opinion, ok ?

    Thanks a bunch ~

    ..... phew .... that's a entirely new outlook on ' insight ', not to mention ' a bit of leg ' !

    Sorry, that is just a lack of class as well as self-esteem on Ms. Rubik's part .... there are classy looking fashions without going overboard.

    I don't get how showing some leg makes you look stupid. Or how it isn't dignified and classy. Modest, maybe not, but what is wrong with being sexy?
