From fluted hems to long and flowing silhouettes, designers have been getting creative with skirts and dresses for the past few runway seasons. Think you've seen it all? There's a new feminine bottom on the high fashion runway that makes us think one more skirt style in our closet couldn't hurt; it's being called the double slit — or more specifically, the "M-slit." Once you get a glimpse of a few of our favorites, you'll understand where the name comes from (hint: it's the shape) and you'll also see why it's primed to become this spring and summer's street style star.

Gorgeous, sexy, full of vibrant, color, what's not to love about this dress? We can see it worn anywhere, anytime. We can also imagine it with tights and boots and a blazer in the fall.

There are times when subtlety is your ally and others when going bold is your best bet. A standout color with high slits like this is a serious take-no-prisoners look — and we love it!

If you can find a bandage-inspired frock that allows you to show skin without forcing you to wear complicated undergarments, pick it up. We love that this looks ornate but would still work well paired with wardrobe basics.
So far, Millennial looks haven't skimped on futuristic references. The cut-outs on this dress make it seem as if the floating fabric is being kept in place by magic. A construction marvel, this look is too fabulous.
We had to throw in a tropic fantasy style. The hot pink chiffon calls to mind white sand beaches, boardwalks and brightly colored cocktails.
