L is for Leg warmers

I can remember my first pair of leg warmers like it was 30 years ago. (It was 30 years ago.) I wore the heck out of those rainbow striped calf mittens. But not for dance. No, just over the legs of my jeans...in Texas... where it is always warm. I was cool...but not in the sense that I was not warm.

I, for one, am excited that leg warmers are poised to make a comeback on the fashion scene. Leg warmers are practical for dancers, sure. But here are a few ways you can incorporate your favorite pair of leg warmers into your everyday attire:

Enjoy!

  1. Leg warmers > socks

    Just sayin'. I hate socks, but I <3 leg warmers like an old lady <3's cats. Or slot machines. Or Murder She Wrote...

    1. I <3 leg warmers, cats, and Murder She Wrote.
      I think that's a bumper sticker.

  2. I had rainbow striped leg warmers too! But, I think if you were a girl in the 80's it was a requirement. I also had purple leg warmers. That I wore with my purple tights, purple skirt and purple shirt, because that was another prerequisite of the 80's. Oh yeah, purple eyeshadow too. Damn, I miss the 80's.

    1. Luckily for us all, the 80's are back en vogue. Only this time around it is the 80's + Neon.
      Oh well.

  3. A picture of some leg warmers that I photographed was on the first page of hits from your link :D Not surprising since the company I worked for also did SEO, but still... I hadn't thought about them in a while.
