work essentials. The side slit skirt

Remember when side slit skirts were all over the Pre Fall and Fall 2014 runways? No? Quick recap:

I realize that many of you, right at this moment, cannot fathom the idea of a side slit skirt as an essential. BUT, it is. 

I bought a side slight skirt back in 1998(ish) and I wore it none stop for a number of years. A fantastic camel colored BCBG skirt. That I still own (and fit into) to this day. I am even wearing it here. It is because of this specific skirt and the fact that it honestly has been one of the more timeless pieces in my closet that I am telling you, the side slit skirt is something you must own.

There is no better time than now, as it is making a huge comeback, alongside the wrap skirt, and yes, I realize some of the runway options I have featured are actually wrap skirts, but work with me here. It is that subtle show of leg that is feminine, empowering and still work appropriate enough to get you taken, very, seriously.



The following options are in stores now. If you prefer to wait until the fall lines hit the shelves, around August/September I assure you there will be about a million more options out there.
