Your work pants are getting an update for Spring — and luckily it’s a step in the casual direction. The slit trouser is the latest must have, and Michelle Obama already got her hands on a pair. Whether in a bell-shaped or skinny fit, these designs aren’t subtly snipped. Some slashes run all the way up to the knee or thigh, while others sit pretty at the back or front of the pant, making it easier to see your shoes.
While a tailored silhouette like this one might feel appropriate for the office, finish these with a strappy heel and your going-out ensemble’s all the more sexy, thanks to a peek at your ankle. Care to rock the trend at the beach? We found breezy, colorful styles that fit the bill, too. Just read on to shop the slit that speaks to you this season.
