Leg Warmers: The Best Accessory You Don't Own
The words likely conjure up memories of Jane Fonda or your first ballet class, but they shouldn't. Leg warmers are the best winter accessory that, I am guessing, most of you don't own. However, trust in this: They instantly make legs looks longer and slimmer, plus they add a cool factor to what could otherwise be seen as the stereotypical "mom in the morning at drop off" uniform. You know the look I am referring to- leggings, a long sleeve burnout and wedge sneakers. I put a pair on pretty much daily- and not gonna lie, I feel significantly cooler when I have these pulled up over my knees with a slight slouch around the ankle.
Here are 4 super simple reasons to fall madly in love with leg warmers:
- Leg warmers add volume to your calves, which in turn makes your thighs looks MUCH smaller.
- Your vast collection of capri and ankle length leggings suddenly become wearable year-round.
- Pulled over the tops of wedge sneakers, leg warmers make your legs look about a mile long.
- (Captain Obvious here, reporting for duty) They keep your legs warm.
Here are six of my current (and reasonably priced) favorites- try one, try 'em all- you are gonna be obsessed:
1- Flurry Marled Rib Knit: Love the vintage look, these are amazing with black or charcoal grey leggings.
2- Nicepipes Black Compression: This thigh high style offers instantly toned calves plus UPF50 protection.
3- Under Armour Merlot Stirrup: These stay snug thanks to a foot stirrup and cuff at the top.
5- Zella Classic Black: A style staple, these are also perfect for petites.
6- Urban Outfitters Grey Knit: Very sexy pulled up to the knee with pjs or slouched for wear out and about.
