How To Wear Leg Warmers


leg warmersLeg warmers -- how can you wear them without feeling like a 10th grader? Or like you are back in the a bad way? As with many fashion trends, it's not always what you wear but how you wear them. I think I will go as far to say that leg warmers really never went out of style and it's a fashion item that also keeps you warm. Practical fashion? A true win-win!

Here are some ideas on how to rock the leg warmers....

leg warmersI love wearing leg warmers with jeans. They work best with skinny or straight leg jeans -- like the type of jeans you tuck into your boots.

The photo above is me in my favorite booties worn with thick black leg warmers with my skinny jeans tucked in. You can also wear with a high boot and just have a little bit of the leg warmer sticking out like in the photo below to the left.

You can also wear with leggings or even a dress and boots. You can wear with a bare leg or layer leg warmers over tights. I really love the Snap Up Over the Knee Legwarmer ($20 from Urban Outfitters) and Button Up Leg Warmers ($18 from Sock Dreams).

What do you think?

Would you wear leg warmers?

I used to wear them when i was a kid, now that I have see it to be a part of fashion, I decided to buy a black pair. But I haven't wore them yet, I will soon, I believe with the jeans or tights, I think it looks so cute! And will keep you warm.

hahahah..... my MOM wore leg warmers when I was born.... hahhahahahah

buttttttt on that note.....I make them  for my baby..... she is a "diaper free baby" so while ECing it she has a shirt on and leg warmers cause it's just easier to not wear pants.... and they are GREAT for crawling around on floors... cause ur babies knees are always dirty....

I only wear them under my jeans where nobody can see them. To me, they're not fashion, they help keep me warm.
