Milla Jovovich and Katie Price provide proof that legwarmers are making a comeback

Legwarmers

We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the leg warmers situation for a while now, but this week has seen a sudden rush on them, with Milla Jovovich wearing a pair to the Louis Vuitton show in Paris, and Katie Price looking very blue in what’s starting to become her signature style of leggings, stilettos and a tiny dress.

While there’s little doubt that Milla would win hands (or legs) down if this was a Star Style War, though, we’re just not convinced this is a trend we should be continuing to turn a blind eye too. While we loved the look of leg warmers under long boots earlier this winter, seeing them flaunted like this with stilettos is perhaps a little bit too ‘Kids from Fame’ for your humble Fashion Police, who thought Flashdance was a great movie, but who don’t necessarily want to ever have to see the fashions worn in it again.

Your verdict, jury? Are the legwarmers-with-stilettos good uns’, or should we be sending them down?

    Well, I LOVE Leg Warmers as a general rule. They are one of my “things” along with arm warmers, fingerless gloves, scarves and glasses. But I believe they are best worn in a comfort casual way, with flats or a chunky heel. Seeing them worn with stilettos is disturbingly 80’s and not at all fashion forward.

    I went to Switzerland for Christmas and I loved the way people in the Zurich airport and on the trains were dressed. I remember on young woman wearing tights and legwarmers over doc martens with either shorts or a short skirt. (And a big coat of course.) I loved the look- but I think maybe only chic Europeans can pull it off!
    And I don’t know how I feel about them with stilettos. I kind of feel like Milla can do no wrong. On her, the neutral color pallet makes it work. But I don’t know if it would look good on mere mortals. 🙂

    Mmh… nope! Not a good one, don’t like it at all. I agree with Shelly: not for mere mortals.

    Please do NOT bring leg warmers back! I loved and grew up in the 80’s. Big hair and all the other bad fashions I can live with. Leg warmers I never liked and never will.
