If you haven’t lived through the 80’s like I have then, unfortunately, you were unable to experience the era of leotards and tights in the crazy Jane Fonda inspired workout days. What always accompanied those shiny multi-colored tights of those days was a pair of leg warmers scrunched up and beautifully worn on the lower legs.
Oh, the love in remembering those days is always recalled every time I see them worn, usually over thick tights on a cold winter day. While probably not the “it” thing in fashion at the moment (though in my book, all the rage), you can still spot them around here or there on lovely women whose legs get a bit chilly in the cool air.
Of course, sitting at home in my own pair of thick, shiny suntan colored JC Penney tights, my legs also get a bit cold. That’s when I grab my pair of matching tan colored leg warmers, sitting dormant for the last six months and slip them over my tights. A much better alternative to pants, wouldn’t you think?
