When did Leg Warmers come back in style?

I was walking back to my office when I spotted the following coming out of the bathroom:

  • Black opaque stockings

  • Calf length black A-Line skirt two sizes too big for this woman.

  • Red Chinese Silk Jacket

  • Scrunched up Multicolor Legwarmers

  • Black ankle boots

  • Firstly, legwarmers make any woman (let's not go into men who wear legwarmers) look like they are 13. Secondly, they are just wrong. Unless you are Jamie Lee Curtis or Jane Fonda, leg warmers should not be in your wardrobe. Please let this so called comeback fashion be passing. Thirdly, that entire outfit does not fit anything I deem business appropriate and this comes from a woman who has been known to wear sequins, lace and fur to work. [Note: Not all in one outfit. I'm not Beyonce.]

    Now I've done it. By this time in March, I'll be the girl walking the dogs with pink legwarmers and a rainbow belt. Heck, maybe I should fashion some doggie leg warmers and start selling them to Trixie + Peanut.
