High Slits/Garters


high slits and garters

You've seen those garters everywhere online. May I suggest losing the shorts from 2012 and wearing them with the new must-have: maxi skirts/dresses with high slits? I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone doing this yet. It almost seems too obvious.

Personally, I'm more a fan of the above hardcore style, esp with high boots or combat boots and high socks.

This is the easiest thing to diy if you have the right fabric skirt. Jersey you can just cut. If you have a skirt with edges that will fray, you'll have to sew. I think it'd be cool to wear a high-slit skirt to work (minus the garter of course) with very cool or vivid opaque nylons.

(oh and, where the hell have I been? Working working working... I've been getting hit up for freelance gigs in addition to my day job, which is already high-pressure/high volume as is! typical nyc bullshit, overbooked myself and even had to take time off from work to work on these projects, which of course caused me to get behind in my day-job work. It's been about two weeks, and i'm only now beginning to get caught up. Today's been the only free day I've had in over a month, and I'm weirdly anxious like I feel like i'm neglecting or forgetting something...)

  1. It is a cool style, although I suppose you need a certain body type!

  2. Oooh I am inspired! I am a fan of the more hardcore style myself. I also love garters and used to wear them all the time... I may just pull them back out. Thanks for the post. Sorry to hear you have been working so much.

  3. Oh, yes, I love these high slit skirts, but I don't have the legs for garters...

  4. Oh, I've been similarly busy, don't worry; hoping to make a comeback at some point next week. I like this idea, though; I've been wearing my garters with socks and dresses, but I'll give it a go sometime.

    1. I always enjoy your posts. I was thinking of doing an "I'm still around but busy post" but I break all of my blogging promises every time, lol.

    2. Aww, thank you - that means a lot. I hopefully will be able to blog properly again from now on (I only have a two day week this year, blessed be), but getting back into a normal routine is really hard. So I guess we'll see!

  5. Good call on the nylons, I have eyeballed a few high-slit skirts but I was thinking of wearing them for summer so I didn't get any of them. Showing my bare thighs is not the most flattering on me but the nylons would definitely take care of that and I could use them for my fall wardrobe.

    1. I don't like showing my bare thighs either. Glad you were inspired

  6. I love the combination of garters and slit skirts. :D I wore them a couple a years ago but stopped quite soon. Mainly because in my country and at that time garters were considered rather sexual by the majority. So some people seemed to think I was a sex worker. :O
