Leg Warmers

Like a lot of things from the '80s, leg warmers are even cooler the second time around. This time around, leg warmers are a little more lighthearted than they used to be. No one is under the impression anymore that these are serious fashion items--they're just a lot of fun!

One of the great things about them is that they can make really simple outfits look cool. A jeans skirt and a black sweater don't look like much of anything. Pair the same jeans skirt and black sweater with a pair of striped warmers and a colorful pair of shoes, however, and you've got the perfect casual date outfit.

Leg Warmers for Kids

One of the best things about living in New York was checking out the fashionable kids. I think almost every child in Manhattan had a hipper wardrobe than I did. These days, the hip little kids in cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are wearing leg warmers.

They start wearing them as young as two years old. Little kids look so unbelievably cute in these little warmers, especially when they are patterned or striped. Aunts and uncles, take note--warmers are an inexpensive, kid-pleasing, grown-up pleasing hit of a gift.
