Leg warmers: in style and how to wear them?

Q. I have seen this around as a recent trend. Can you tell me how to wear them with skirts?

A. Leg warmers have been circling around for a few years now, and there’s a reason they haven’t really caught on: they’re just not that flattering. Unless you are under the age of 20, I think this is one retro trend not worth buying into. I mean, how cold do your calves really get? If the answer is very, opt for a chic tall boot instead.

However, if you’re really excited to give them a try, here are some street style snaps for inspiration on how to wear your leg warmers with leggings, skinny jeans, and dresses. To answer your question, the best way to wear with skirts is to layer over opaque tights and booties or pumps. The shorter your hemline, the better your legs will look since leg warmers will add bulk to the lower half of your leg.
