Glamour magazine released a statement that accessories this season are becoming more “nostalgic” from different eras of fashion. They weren’t lying as the fall 2011 collection for rag & bone features legwarmers via the ‘60s. Designer Betsey Johnson has also shown legwarmers in a variety of different colors, styles and fabrics in her runway shows. This fun accessory is hitting campuses everywhere, proven by this Fashionista who was recently spotted wearing legwarmers with jean shorts. Legwarmers are becoming a great way to transition your favorite pair of shorts into fall!

How To: Any Fashionista could rock legwarmers with either flats or heels for a different look! Nordstrom has cable knit legwarmers or go for the wool and cashmere pair from rag & bone. To really show off this look, pair your legwarmers with shorts or a skirt. Urban Outfitters has a great selection of cut-off denim that can be worn with tights as the weather gets colder. For a cute skirt to pair with legwarmers, try American Apparel's silky skirt in a gorgeous royal blue.
