It’s time to settle this once and for all because between our discussions at the office (borderline arguments) and the thesis-type research in the fashion department critically analyzing whether the said mentioned is actually a thing –we need to lay this out: what’s the deal with the Slit Denim? Firstly, let’s casually divulge into what it actually is. Slit denims basically refer to denim jeans with slits, incisions or openings in the inner and outer side seams or in the front or back, the key is in making sure that the slit reaches the hem of the denim.
Whilst this description seems rather basic, you’ll be surprised by the major controversy and confusion over the whole thing but in my opinion, this updated version of the now-boring average denim is underrated and should be introduced more fluidly, I mean we work in fashion- since when are we completely opposed to the fashion faux pas or the risk of it all? We wear pants that are literally buttoned up on the side all the way up to their hips, what’s a little snip snip along the side seam to give your denim a little bang for the buck. Totally DIY worthy, can someone bring us a pair of sheers?
Getting into the crux of what makes this denim style special - can we discuss how well it pairs with basically any and every shoe in our closets? From flats, boots, heels to sneakers the slit denim scores major points in the versatility department. With the perfect balance of fit and flare, the split hem makes a shoe the highlight –that is if you exclude a major detail: how well it actually fits the body. There have been quite a few variations emerging over the past few months but some of our favourites include the wide leg and the straight leg. Alternate between the different rises in denim style and you’re looking at what appears to be a summer best.
Functionality focus; it’s the pair with that tiny bit of oomph. We don’t mean to sound dramatic about it but when there is a new feature in the ever-classic denim world with only a smidgen of a difference since basically 1873, believe us when we say that we have to jump at the opportunity and invest in a pair for ourselves.
