Why leg warmers are our latest obsession


Blame it on Prada but leg warmers are officially back! The perfect mix of cosy and chic, they’ll ensure you keep snug en route to yoga, not to mention give you some serious retro style cred. Need more inspiration? Just look to movies like Fame and Flashdance, where these stretchy accessories reigned supreme. When it comes to choosing a hue, we like subtle tones such as burgundy and dark grey. But if you like your gym gear with a bit more personality, you can also experiment with patterns. If you prefer a look with a bit less coverage, consider ankle warmers. Or try adorning your wrists with arm warmers. After all, who said you can’t be toasty and on trend?
