Rockin' the Leg Warmers

The best look in fashion in the 1980's was introduced with the movie, Flashdance.  All a girl needs is a pair of leg warmers and a ripped sweatshirt, add a few accessories, jeans, heels, and you are good to go.  I decided to bring back the leg warmer to my own closet two years ago after finding a great pair at American Apparel.  For the last two years, I have rocked a leg warmer on my way to my show with a pair of sneakers or my Uggs.  Hey, it's cold in Detroit and Chicago in the January and February.  I may not be the most fashionable girl with that look, but I am still rockin' my leg warmers.
Yep, I wore this in NY. I had to walk about twenty blocks to work in my wardrobe each day. So, I worked Flashdance and Working Girl all into one look.
I am happy to say the leg warmer is officially back this season, so I will be adding a few affordable pairs to my collection this fall.  Below is my American Apparel leg warmers that I bought a few years ago.  I am not a fan of the AA "model shots", but the leg warmers are a great buy at $16.
American Apparel, Black and White, $16
There are a lot of sophisticated choices out there, check out a few looks for fall:
1.  Forest Green Cinched Leg Warmers:  $9.99 Ruche
2.  Button Up Leg Warmers:  $27 Sock Dreams
3.  Eliot Sweater Leg Warmers:  $118 Marc by Marc Jacobs
4.  Heather Grey Chunky Leg Warmers:  $16 Topshop
