Kix by Katie,  $12.95 for 3 sets

Wearing heels with long pants is one of the most chic and timeless tricks for lengthening legs and giving the appearance of height. But when heel wedgies — that annoying bunching thing that happens when your pants get caught up in your heels — strike, it's almost not worth the fashion illusion bonus points. Heel wedgies can look goofy, feel uncomfortable and, worst of all, lead to an unsightly fall (one of the most embarrassing results of a wardrobe malfunction in my book.)

Now, thanks to innovative fashionista Katie Johnson, we no longer have to sacrifice one of our favorite tricks due to discomfort. She developed Kix by Katie, paper-thin fabric strips you adhere to the inside of your pant legs to keep them weighted down and free from your open-back shoes. Simply stick the Kix to the inner back seams of your favorite jeans or slacks and voila! The little extra weight and rigidity help pants hang naturally and prevent bunching.

The Kix last until you wash (don't forget to peel 'em off before throwing your pants in the wash or taking them to be cleaned!) and come in packs of three. Choose navy to match your denim, or black or tan to coordinate with your suit pants.
