Flashdance flashback

234b8-legwarmersFor a while, we’ve seen 1980s trends like bangles and neon colors make a fashionable return. Trends from the 1960s and 1970s are big now, as well as styles that first emerged in the 1920s and 1940s. Go retro, and it seems you can’t go wrong.

I recently ran across these leg warmers while looking at one of my favorite Web sites, Stylehive, and they seem to be a blend of several decades. Don’t they remind you a little of a cross between leg warmers and long gloves that were popular from the 1940s-1960s? Maybe it’s the vintage-style shoe that makes the concept a little less “Flashdance?” They cost $30 on Etsy.
