So I understand that people really loved the 80s. In some ways I am amused that I now have tons of alligator-emblazoned polos just like my parents before me. (It must be something in the water.) The thing I do not understand is why people resurrect horrible ideas. Case in point: the legwarmer. I will admit, I had multiple pairs in the 1980s. Here is the caveat: I was a dancer. They were designed to keep me from freezing. Unbelievably, a leotard and tights is not a very warm ensemble!
Now I randomly see people wearing them again. Why? If you are that cold put on a pair of pants. There are plenty of stylish pairs just waiting for you. A day or two ago I saw the evil cousin of the leg warmer… the arm warmer. It was sort of like seeing a rare, perhaps dangerous, animal that had escaped from the zoo. You just want to stare in horror, but you do not want it to come close and maul you.
Please do us all a favor and save the arm warmers for an 80s party. They were heinous the first time around.
