Leg warmers were originally designed for athletes to keep them warm and luckily, they later became a fashion accessory for all of us to benefit from on the daily, as well!
Though they might remind you of the 80’s, this little accessory will always have its place in fashion, as well as in your closet. This season, we’re loving leg warmers in dark fall hues like mustard yellow and burgundy, and of course are favourite neutrals.
To complement your fall outfits, just shop for leg warmers that haven open toe and heel detailing, so they’ll fit better in your everyday booties and shoes.
If you’re not sure how to wear them without looking like an 80s workout model, you’re in luck! There are tons of modern ways to accessories this fashion staple.
Here’s how to style leg warmers to stay warm and add some dimension to your fall and winter looks!
With a Skirt
For a preppy daytime look that still works when the temperature drops, combine mustard yellow leg warmers with a classic mini skirt in a complimentary colour like forest green and an intricate pair of tights. Complete your look with a simple black turtleneck and pair with booties, flats or even rain boots.
Wear your favourite black shorts well into winter by combining them with a pair of burgundy leg warmers and a pair of polka dot tights. For a flirty look, complete your outfit with this shirt with a romantic back ruffle. Again, pair with booties or flats, and finish your look with a jean jacket or black poncho.
With a Dress
My favourite thing about this look is that it works both for day and night! A navy dress will perfectly compliment your grey leg warmers. Wear a pair of polka dot tights as well to keep extra warm. Finish off your look with a pair of black booties and you’re ready for a lunch or dinner date.
For a cozy fall look, wear mustard yellow leg warmers with a pair of denim shorts and tights. Wear your favourite t-shirt for a casual look that’s also comfortable, and get ready to enjoy a cozy day.
