Big news on the runway this season was the reappearance of the high-fashion slit. Perfect for any occasion, the MC fashion team shows you how to dress your slit up and down.

This Missoni animal-print skirt has a relaxed feel. Wear this trend on the beach with a fun print around your hips as a flattering cover-up while keeping your leg in the spotlight. For an elegant evening look, pair with a smart blazer and pattered heels.

The slit isn’t just for the brave – for a more demure take, look for one that ends just above the knee or runs along the side.

Anne Hathaway looks red-carpet chic as she adds a glamorous element to the high-fashion slit with minimal accessories. Like Anne, allow the slit to be the main attraction of your outfit and leave the rest simple with a basic silhouette.
