Lets face it if anything is likely to get cold, it might be your nose or finger tips. Possibly your toes if you forgot to put your socks on, but who in their right mind came up with leg warmers?

Do legs really need mitten like material around them. It certainly clashed with most outfits. The main reason why Leg Warmers were so big in the eighties.

Forget fashion practicality in the 1980s leg warmers were awful and the only grace is it’s hilarious looking back at them 30 years on.

  1. I remember having blue woolen leg warmers with little black dogs on them when I was 4 years old. I even have pictures of me wearing them!!

  2. Don’t laugh but I’m looking for leg warmers for my 100 year old Mom. She will only wear dresses and her legs get cold in the winter time even though she has a blanket/throw over her legs.
    I can’t find them locally so will probably order some soon.
