One of the hottest trends for summer 2014 is dresses and skirts with thigh to waist high splits. After spotting this trend on the runways of New York, Milan, London and Paris last fall, dresses and skirts with waist high splits were front and center at the Much Music Awards that took place recently in Toronto.

Kendall Jenner wowed on the red carpet with waist high split in Fausti Puglisi. She made us all do a double look at this daring, leg baring, double split all the way to your pelvis, gown. With the newly, coined phrase “pevage” combining pelvis and cleavage, lets see what we have to look forward to.

Leave it to the Italians to lead the charge on what’s sexy, fashionable and cool. Fausti Puglisi debuted this trend in his s/s 14 collection. While American designer, Donna Karan also showing this trend in her s/s 14 collection with splits just a little less revealing, Donna Karan also incorporated diaphanous sheer fabrics with this trend.

So how should shoppers wear waist high splits? For those fearless fashionistas who are brave enough to include this trend in their summer wardrobe consider wearing this trend either go completely commando (no underwear) or with a barley there On Gossamer g-string.

If you love this trend but the waist high splits are too risqué, try Donna Karan’s version with splits a little more demure. With this version you can wear something a little more substantial underneath without the fear of being totally exposed.

However you decide to rock your splits make sure you are doing leg lifts, squats, sprints and other leg-toning exercises. You are going to need it!!
