The most fashionable way to wear leg warmers with heels is to cover the top part of the shoes with the warmers, which should be scrunched and not pulled smooth. To emphasize the cozy look of the warmers, choose a low, neutral-colored heel rather than a stiletto with bright colors.
A neutral-colored leg warmer can be worn with almost any fashion item, such as flats, heels, ankle boots, skirts, tights and jeans. For heels, pair neutral leg warmers with a nude, brown, black or gray heel to keep the accessories from clashing. An ensemble true to 1980s fashion features neon and patterned leg warmers, so those looking for a retro feel should opt for bright colors.
When styling leg warmers over heels, it is a good idea to avoid extra-high heels and instead choose low to moderate heels or flats. A similar effect can be achieved with boots that have a heel or wedge. Additionally, wearing leggings or tights beneath the leg warmers can add extra warmth and dimension to the outfit. A style featured on BlackLoveForum.com combines dark brown heels, charcoal leg warmers and patterned black tights for a cozy evening look that could be worn with a dress, sweater dress, or skirt and blouse.
