I don’t think you have anything to worry about, especially if you’re going to wear black tights, too.

It’s hard to tell without seeing it on your body, but that doesn’t look too short to me!  My rule of thumb is if it goes below your fingertips it’s good (that was our high school dress code for shorts and skirts, haha).

I think it’s fine. You could always use the “Catholic Ruler”. If your dress is past your fingertips when your hands are on your side, reaching down you’re probably okay. The general rule of thumb is at least an inch or two.

I think its iffy – I wouldn’t wear anything for a work/office related event that wasn’t clearly below my fingertips.  So unless you have really long arms or something, I’d try to find a different dress.

You are fine with a shorter dress and tights. In fact I have several cocktail dresses that I only wear in the winter, b/c they are too short to wear w/o tights 🙂

definitely doesn’t look or sound too short!

I don’t think it’s that short-plus you’re wearing tights and no boobs are showing so I think you are all good for an office party.  The trick is to only show off one body part at a time. So show a little leg!
