How To Wednesday! Rock those leg warmers!

The most commonly asked question this season at Bags That Fit is: How do I wear these leg warmers?? Well ladies...NEVER FEAR! BTF shop girls are HERE!

Welcome back leg warmers! Here are a few rules to keep you stylin and comfy cozy this winter.

Rule 1: NO NEON. The 80's were fun and though leg warmers have made a come back remember to keep it fashion forward. When choosing a leg warmer stick with neutrals and warm colors: Black, grey, brown, cream, warm red, plum & blue. Also, make sure the texture isnt too bulky. This is also extremely important if you want to minimize your calves. Bright colors are fun but have been known to make your calves look bigger. Esp. when wearing with a skinny jean. They are more bulky then tights and leggings so neutrals are ideal.

***Important Tip*** When tucking into boots... DO NOT choose a heavy texture and the rule is to let them peak out 2-6 inches.
Rule 2: Wear with tights & leggings. For those of you that love to wear skirts and dresses this is a great option to keep your legs toasty. Make sure they are below your knee and you pull partly over the heel of your shoe....also OK to wear with flats. Rule 3: If you are going to wear over your shoes with skinnies....DO NOT wear a tall boot! Wear an ankle boot. OR
You will risk looking like this! Notice how bulky...and how those bright bold colors are just a little too much!
Rule 4: For something a little less casual and more sophisticated you'll love our lace boot socks. Great with skirts, over leggings....
or over denim....

Rule 5: Have fun with your own personal style! Trust yourself, add your own twist and you can never go wrong!
