Longer hemlines make comeback at New York Fashion Week

There were more pants, too, than in recent seasons when the dress ruled the runways. Even designers who showed shorter dresses paired them with leg-warmers for a less leggy look.

Oscar de la Renta showed long, slim skirts for daytime, while Michael Kors had the slim shape just below the knee as well as free-flowing knits that grazed the floor.

The old saying that hemlines go up in a good economy and down in a bad one is not always the case, but many did see the longer hemline as a reflection of the Great Recession.
