Here are 3 ways to look stylish in leg warmers this winter no matter your style!
Cozy & Feminine
Leg warmers can easily be paired with any tights and skirt combination. For a cozy and feminine look, opt for a skirt in a flared silhouette and knit fabric. The material will perfectly compliment a pair of leg warmers and will give you a warm, yet feminine style. Choose leg warmers in burgundy to add a pop of colour to any basic grey or black skirt.
Sporty & Chic
Wear leg warmers over a pair of leggings for a sporty chic look that can take you just about anywhere. Basic leggings are easy to dress up and style when combined with a graphic sweater and colourful leg warmers. Opt for leg warmers in mustard yellow and a pair of statement glitter socks to add a style twist to your look.
Trendy & Professional
Leg warmers look dressy and professional when combined with materials like suede and leather. Rock your grey leg warmers at Happy Hour by wearing them with a leather skirt, a trendy oversized sweater in a fun colour and a pair of high-heeled booties. For a complete look, finish off your outfit with a pair of patterned tights.
