Carnivale of Couture: Let's Talk About Leg Warmers!

The Fashionable Kiffen's invitation:

What item/style/look do you wish would become a trend? Or what trend from the past would you like to resurrect?

I'm so glad you asked! I have been so hoping that somebody would resurrect leg-warmers. How about you knitting ladies? It seems all the stylish young ladies in my circle are ready to wear them, but we are all waiting for someone else to go first.

Back in the '80s, when I had to wear pantihose to work everyday, and they had to show, I wore leg-warmers to and from the car, just to keep my legs warm and dry. Now that pantihose are out of favor with many people, what better way to stay warm and express creativity and style than a skirt and leg-warmers? (A skirt and boots?)

Maybe I should have turned this post in to last week's Carnivale.

I told myself I would wear leg-warmers (sincerely and not ironically) this past winter if I got my act together to knit a pair or two.

Of course I didn't, but I still wanted to wear them with my skirts, tights, and heels under my desk. They are totally functional! I know some very chic ladies turn up their nose at the idea, but I WILL make a pair before next autumn and wear them PROUDLY.
