...leg warmers?!

hey. i have a question. my mother-in-law bought me 5 pairs of leg warmers from england ((in different colors)) and since it's getting kind of chilly these days i wanted to start to wear them. she said they were really popular in that country, but... what do i wear them with ((what shoes, shirts, pants)) and is it even in style anymore here in america or did it go out with the 80's? help! Chat Icon

ps-i'm not going to wear them for dance.

I wore them last winter under jeans. No one can see them and they kept my legs warm!

I've done that too. Alsd If I was wearing leggings with a sweater dress I'd put them on over them, but then I would have uggs over that as well so you would only se thetop of them. I get cold outside in the winter. THis was the extra layer I needed instead of wearing 3 layers of pantsChat Icon

Chat Icon You will be so warm. i'm one to have worn several layers of pants in the winter (stockings, leggings, pants over both) I got a thick pair of leg warmers because they were cheap and cute and I swear it was the best thing I bought last winter (after uggs)With the right length sweater people won't even know its leg warmersChat Icon just really thick leggings.

I just got this month's Cosmo and the fashion section was FULL of leg warmers under boots (just peaking out the top). I thought they looked pretty cute.

Re: ...leg warmers?!

I know they were really popular last winter, but I haven't seen them much yet this year...

I would wear them with leggings, or skinny jeans.
