The Demure Way To Work A Thigh-High Slit

Joseph Altuzarra and his unparalleled love of thigh-high slits are in full force for spring. But, you'd be wrong to assume the designer's signature is only for the red-carpet-bound Angelina Jolies of the world. Rather, the pencil skirts in Altuzarra's resort '14 collection have a demure feel — even with their leg-revealing inseams. Case in point: the doily-print pencil skirt shown here. Teamed with a silk, lace-appliqué blouse and white heels, the outfit is shimmering and sexy, yet still ideal for fancy dinners and cocktail parties. The chic ensemble can be worn to work, too — simply swap the bottom for something similar but slightly more conservative. Top the look off with a sassy strut. Even Angie will be jealous.
