Beauty mogul Kim Kardashian even started an exclusive inner wear line for these gowns. Anand Bhushan, designer, says, “ The best thing that has happened to the thigh-high slit gown this year is the inner wear line launched by the reality star. Though a thigh-high slit gown is the safest thing to wear on a red carpet, it’s the inner wear that has to be really thought about as any slip and it would end up being a fashion faux pas.”

Classic silhouettes like these work the best for tall people as it accentuates their long and modelsque legs. Designer Nachiket Barwe says, “ Its important to have toned legs to carry that dress. There is a fine line between looking classy and looking tardy.” Elaborating on the trend, he says, “Opting for loose hair and a pair of strappy sandals to go with it will keep the look understated and elegant.”

Stylist Mohit Rai, says, “ It’s a classic trend and that’s why it keeps coming back . It’s a style which can work on all body types as just a minimal part of skin shows. It is quite flattering for people who are body conscious. I personally recommend this style as it makes a statement.” Up your fashion game with these gowns and make sure all eyes are on you this season.
