Trend Alert: Like, oh my gosh! Leg Warmers Are Back!

Although I’m a child of the 80s, I must admit that I never expected leg warmers to make a fashion comeback. But I was wrong, as they’ve been spotted on the streets of Japan, and are sure to make their way westward soon. Nothing like the afghan you got for Christmas, the new gnarly knits are less bulky than the 80s version, more like a nice jersey turtleneck for your legs. Urban Outfitters offers Solid Banded Leg Warmers on their web site that are smooth and barely come up to the knees. Dance supply shops have the best variety for now, though, including dancewear king Danskin. Now that we’ve seen the revival of several 80s signature styles – blue eyeshadow, big hair and Jordache jeans – what could be next? Parachute pants?
