Outfits I may try to put together based on a pair of shoes and a scarf I already own, and dark orange leg warmers I saw yesterday.

Warning: Serious opinionage-

Leg warmers are only in style when you're a six-year-old little girl in ballet class. e_e And for the amount of time that they are actually going to be back "in", I don't think it's worth the time to design outfits with them. Enduring fashions (jeans with a slight flair, print screen tees, hoodies) are worth worrying about, not this year's should-be fashion faux pas. And I'll fuss over arm warmers before legwarmers. *cuddles black/silver and black/hot pink pairs*

And the same in return.

:rofl: hon. I'm a child of the 80s. I know leg warmers are out of style. I did the 6-year-old in ballet class bit. They have made a brief but inexplicable comeback, I saw them starting a couple of years ago. I found one pair of them that I liked this year, for the first time since I was 6. so I am designing at least one outfit I like how they look with, and have a good outfit on it's own as well. So I can buy them without completely wasting my money. Besides, screw fashion, I dress how I like. I've never paid trends any mind before, nor am I in this case, I just happen to like this one item I saw.

As far as the arm warmers... Equally retarded. Made chic by the punk-goth-hot-topic-whatever-it-is generation. But you know what, if you like 'em, more power to you. As I said, screw fashion.

I, too, am a child of the 80s. I wear arm warmers because most of the stuff I do requires finger dexterity that gloves don't provide. Goth-punk is a poor excuse to use on them, though, because I've seen them on characters in several movies, including Bridge to Terabithia, who haven't been goth-punk.

I don't tend to follow fashion either, just because it runs out (though I usually laugh when I predict the return of styles correctly). But I find that arm warmers are far more useful than leg warmers.

*grins* But you're younger than my little brother!

Seeing arm warmers used on a child in a children's movie is not exactly the best argument. But you must admit, stores like Hot Topic did bring them back into the mainstream. Hey, they're cute. But they come from the same logic that spawns leg warmers, and thusly are no better. Leg warmers are used in modern "fashion" (harhar) because somebody decided to bring 80s back, and to keep your legs warm when wearing a skirt in cold weather.

Personally if I need finger dexterity in cold weather, but still feel the need to bother with gloves, I wear long sleeves and fingerless gloves (of which the only pair I own these days are a workout pair I use when moving furniture or other heavy objects that may involve splinters).

And just to ensure you're not offended, because I certainly don't intend to, I find this discussion a somewhat amusing turn.

I'm not trying to say leg warmers are fashionable. Certainly not for long term at least. They are truly 80s silliness. But I'm just pointing out that, personal preferences aside, arm warmers are equally silly.

Although in the future, I would appreciate taking note of the "Critique Not Desired" notice. I rarely turn it on, and I would far more appreciate turning serious conversation about the stuff I post on here towards my actual artwork rather than my being silly.

=3 I find it amusing and interesting, too.

XD I never said that arm warmers were any more fashionable than leg warmers, but I can see the point in needing them as a type of fingerless glove as opposed to legwarmers just kind of always went over my head since I never wear skirts or dresses and think that socks and long pants suffice just fine to keep my legs warm.

Fingerless gloves are one thing, toe-less socks are another thing entirely to me. *shrug*

Toe-less socks? Such a thing exists?

The leg warmers I found make me think of fluffy knit spats. Which amuses me to no end.

It's an enthralling combination, but is it wrong that the orange sweater made me think "Hey, it's Velma!"[link]

Awww... I'm not Velma. But yeah, the first design was a bit frumpy once I drew it out.

:rofl: I really ought to seriously try watching Naruto. I barely know anything about the show.

Thank you! I think, deep down, I just want the excuse to wear this old knit hat and scarf I've had for years. (Someone in the family made it for my mom when she was in college or something. It's like 30 years old. But I love the green, orange and gold of it.)

I see you're having fun with your inner fashion designer. Looks good.

Yup. Bwahaha. This is an outfit I'd normally put together for Kody.

But I was recently told by a friend, I have good fashion sense, it shows in my art, but I never apply it to myself.
