3 Different Ways to Wear a Slit Maxi Skirt: Classic, Punk, & Casual

Skirts with really high slits can go from tasteful to raunchy really quick. With a few accessories here's how to avoid that.

 Minimalistic black and white look: classic. I love this slit with sheer black tights, it adds visual interest while keeping the color palette simple.

 Juxtaposing pink and red: punk. I've liked this color combination ever since Blair's red and pink ensemble when she went to wait for Chuck at the top of the Empire State building a while back on Gossip Girl.

Sweater and oxfords: casual. Throwing on a loose sweater and switching into flats pretty much makes everything casual. The thin toque necklace brings out the gold on the belt buckle. (You know how much I love hardware!)
