The high slit trend has been around since the 1990s, and it went dormant for a while before being revived by A-list celebrities and fashion designers. During the Met Gala after party, which just ended, we saw some really daring outfits, from the most extreme high-slit gowns to the least, and it made us gasp for air.

Fashion changes, and to be honest, trends come back (maybe in a more spectacular way), so different places have different reactions to the trend of high-slit dresses, mostly because they are not modest enough.

There are a variety of ways to wear your gown modestly, and it’s most common in areas with severe dress standards.
High-end fashion firms like Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, and Gucchi have demonstrated over the years that crafting the perfect body-fitting high slit is their job, and we live for it all year.
