Obsession of the Week: Slitted, Pleated Maxi Skirts

Leg slits have been having a moment in fashion. First, it was Angelina Jolie who dared to bare her right stem with a super high slit dress at the Oscars. Then last week at the Met Ball, Polish model Anja Rubik showed off more than a little bit of leg in her getup.

And this week, adorable actress Emma Roberts showed off a little slit as well, and I couldn’t be more in love with her look. She took a pleated maxi skirt with side slits and paired it with a crop top, cardigan and casual boots. It made me realize how cute pleated skirts are this time of year. Yes, I am all about the pleats lately and just showed you a few pleated dresses a couple weeks ago. So now I’m sharing a few skirts similar to Emma’s so you can get the look!

How cute is this findersKEEPERS One More Chance Skirt from shopbop? It’s chiffon with a fun underlay and slits up the sides just like Emma’s, giving it a little sex appeal.

I am so in love with the flouncy look of this BCBGMAXAZRIA Maxi Skirt with Estel Sunburst pleats. It’s romantic, classic and sophisticated. It makes me want to twirl!

And what better way to celebrate summer color than by popping on this Pleat Maxi Skirt by Hive & Honey. If you’re not familiar with this brand, it is my favorite affordable and on trend staples at Piperlime. I would love this paired with just about anything, but think it would be so cute with a grey tank and cropped jean jacket for strolling around town. I absolutely love the color!

For something on sale at Nordstrom (where there’s always free shipping and returns!), there’s this Collective Concepts Crochet Waist Maxi Skirt with a sheer crepe skirt and elastic crochet waist. So cute! I plan to take this abroad on a summer trip to Europe—it’s perfect for strolling the streets on a quiet afternoon.

Finally, I wanted to include this Brigitte Bailey Halia Skirt for those who can’t get into the pleated trend (it’s not for everyone!)—you can still do a maxi skirt without the pleats! This one has a fold-over waist and snug fit to make it sexy.
