leg warmers then & now

Leave a response ->


she’s a maniac

Who can forget Jennifer Beals running around in a leotard and leg warmers “dancing like she’s never danced before…”?

I may have danced around my bedroom in a similar ensemble trying desperately to look like her. I’m not fully admitting to it, I’m just saying it MIGHT have happened.

leg warmers return

Like all trends that have an impact, leg warmers are back. This time, we’re seeing them with shorts, skirts, layered with boots, on top of leggings, skinny jeans, and tights.

my way

I’ll probably wear them with boots, like in the picture above. I really love how they look with skirts, but I think I’m too old for that look. We’ll see, I’m going to play with it a bit. How will you wear them… if at all?

    I wear them while lounging in my pj’s which consist of shorts and a T. Keeps my legs warm ;) I know I could just wear sweat pants around the house but these look much cuter :)

  • Manolo lover

    I think this look is something that my daughter would like, and that’s my “too old for me” test. I also don’t need that added bulk around my calves…in fact, who does?

  • Melany

    I love leg warmers, especially w/ boots. I bought a black pair last fall/winter & I thought they were funky chic!

  • Jean Voute Pratt

    LOL! That could be true. However, if you don’t go overboard bunching them – they may actually elongate your leg. I’m not sure either though – I have to play with it awhile before I commit.
