Side-split maxi dresses to be the number one Christmas trend

Side-split maxi dresses are set to be the new big fashion trend for this year’s Christmas party season, claims.

Fashion blogger Taryn Davies noted that, whilst it’s still only November, Christmas season will soon descend and “before you know it, you’ll have three parties to attend in one week”.

For those who feel like they have nothing to wear for any of these parties, Davies claimed that side-split maxi dresses – whilst a little on the risqué side – would be bang-on trend this season.

The dresses, which often reach to the floor but are slashed along the leg line as high as the wearer dare go, have been enjoying a renaissance of late. In just recent weeks alone, the likes of Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding have been spotted wearing the garments in one guise or another, reports.     

Whilst noting that the split side and exposed leg may be a little risqué, Davies said there are still plenty of ways for party-goers to balance the look and make it “ultra classy too”.

Using Ora’s velvet side-split maxi dress as inspiration, Davies noted: “Simple black heels ensured this fuss-free look was elegant whilst not being overtly sexy.

“If you’re working the side split trend you may want to choose a long-sleeved option, or something with a high neck to help balance the look.”
