Let’s Get Physical!

One of my favorite things about the 80s was the fashion. You had to be a serious risk taker to really enjoy this time period. Leg warmers were one of the risks I was glad to take. I was a teenager in the eighties and had several pairs. I usually wore them with jeans.

Here is what wikipedia says about this cool fad:

Originally worn by dancers to keep their muscles from cramping after stretching, in the early 1980s leg warmers became a fad and wearing them was fashionable among teenage girls. Their popularity was partly due to the influence of the films Fame and Flashdance and the concurrent aerobics craze. They were worn with leggings, jeans, and tights or as part of aerobic wear.

See how cool they are?

This is how I wore them!

This just made me laugh!! =D

They are great conversation starters…

Look at those leg warmers go! =D

Did I mention how COOL they are? I have a red pair with pom poms on the top of them. They are TOTALLY Rockin’! I hope they make a come back. Maybe I should wear mine out in public to inspire this idea…
