Dear Topshop: Skirt Slits Are Awesome
We have a problem. Lately, I have purchased several skirts and dresses from your store. I love them. They are all adorable, fit perfectly, and have quickly become go-to items. However, they are all made of fabrics without much give and none of them have a detail that I think of as standard in such garments: a slit in the back. Normally, a lack of slit is not an issue. But in certain instances—for example, when presented with a flight of stairs—the lack of leg mobility becomes vexing. Yesterday, on the way to see a band, I encountered a hill of a medium incline. Comedy ensued as I had to take baby steps the entire way up it. And forget dancing. So I beg you, Topshop, please start stitching slits into your skirts and dresses. Slits keep us ladyfolk from doing the I-can’t-quite-move-in-my-skirt shuffle.
