On Trend: Wedding Dresses with Slits

MONIQUE LHUILLIER FW12 BRIDAL NEW YORK 10/15/2011

Celebs like Angelina Jolie and Rihanna have been rocking gowns with thigh high slits recently on the red carpet. This trend is also catching on with wedding dress designers, although in a more demure way.

If you have killer gams and want to add a bit of sex appeal to your wedding day, then this look is for you. To keep it classy, be sure that you aren’t showing too much skin up top and keep your shoes simple. Sky high strappy stilettos will take it over the top, so I would style these wedding dresses with a pair of peep toe pumps in a muted nude or blush tone.

And please, don’t start your own “leg meme” like Angelina did by thrusting your leg out to the side! The idea is to have just a hint of leg showing as you walk gracefully down the aisle.

Ines Di Santo

The lace trim and one shoulder neckline make this wedding dress a fashion forward choice.

Monique Lhuillier

In her Fall 2012 collection, Monique Lhuillier showed a number of different dresses with slits (including our featured image). From ballgowns to lovely lace the slit works with any style!

Angel Sanchez

This unique Angel Sanchez wedding dress has cape-like sleeves and a simple skirt where the slit is the star! I would have the slit taken down a few inches in alterations.

Manuel Mota for Pronovias

This fun dress by Pronovias has a 70′s disco vibe to it and would be great for a modern bride.

 Would you wear a wedding dress with a slit?
