Skirts and dresses have been getting shorter by the season, and
although you might think that the fact that fall is just around the
corner would mean hemlines are lowering, think again. There are just as
many ultra short minis on the racks of our favorite retailers (and on
the pages of our beloved e-tailers). But what if you’ve fallen for a dress that’s oh-so-short, but you don’t want to show miles of leg?

There are quite a few options for those of us who don’t want our

can do wonders for your gams, especially when worn with heels. Pick up
a few pairs of Donna Karan tights and you’ll be set for the season – these are some of the softest, most comfortable tights on the planet. You could also wear boots for more coverage (boots that hit right below the knee tend to be the most leg-lengthening because they don’t break the curve of the calf). Read more here
