Shorter hemlines 'saved by leggings'
A recent image of Sienna Miller wearing a high dress in London has caused one fashion commentator to pose the question: can hemlines be too short?

'No' was Sara Davis' answer - providing the fashionista in question invests in a pair of funky leggings to make the overall look a lot more modest.

Writing for the Examiner, the Los Angeles-based clothing expert explained that while many people believe the hosiery trend to be on its way out, the summer is bringing a renaissance.

Ms Davis added that the "onslaught" of brighter colours and prints on leggings can add a touch of class to any outfit, particularly that of Sienna, who donned a "classic choice for summer wear": a white dress with flowing sleeves, an empire waist and a bubble hem.

Sienna Miller was recently spotted at the Chelsea Flower Show, posing for the press in a long black jacket and stockings.
