    Whatever happened to them, remember when they were the fashion trend for the cold legs crowd? Philip G's airplane engine cozy thread made me associate those things with leg warmers.. [​IMG]

    Since it was an 80's fashion I'm hoping it'll come back soon. Like in the 90's everthing 70's came back.

    Women looked so sexy in them.

    They went the way of all semi-retarded fashion schemes, hopefully never to return.

    You'll see them again on "That 80's Show" I'm sure.

    Yeah, I too have for mysterious reasons found those things incredibly sexy. Guess I'll be glued to the screen for That 80's Show...thanks for the tip, I hadn't even thought about that aspect [​IMG]
    The last few girlfriends have all expressed utter disbelief when they hear the response to "so what do you find sexy?" I need to keep my opinions to myself.

    So you guys think leg warmers are sexy? Why couldn't it have been G'rilla socks or Toe socks? At least I liked those...
    Leg warmers were just stupid [​IMG]

    I thought leg warmers were a lot of fun. I didn't realize anyone thought they were sexy. I bet I still have some somewhere. I could start wearing them to the gym except they'd clash with my tattoos . . .

    Personally, I really liked leggings--those thin skintight pants that showed EVERY curve.....

    Now this is my kind of topic! Don't any of you get me started on the 80s or this thread will never be the same...[​IMG]

    On one of the two times I've seen a man walk into a lamp post because he was distracted by ogling a pretty woman, the woman in question was wearing leg warmers (though I think the braless tight t shirt, *very* tight leggings, and high heels might have had more to do with it).

    At least they were driven by lust. I walked into one chatting to a mate across the road...My glasses were never the same again. Hurt like hell, too!
    Legwarmers - ugh! They were only popular because of Fame, I thought.
    Bell bottoms are a bit of a wide ranging thing. I'm not a fan of massive flares but the 'boot cut' slightly flared style looks cool. At least they've come back more thoughtfully designed. No big skater's trousers - they really are stupid! [​IMG]

    I never understood the deal with leg warmers. I did like the toe socks though.

    Leg-warmers...brilliant...
    and I thought I was the only one who appreciated them and awaited their return some day.
    What was it about them...well my theory is that they mirrored the well accepted attraction of stockings...even when worn over jeans, triggered the same area of the brain obviously.[​IMG]
