Trend Alert: Arm Warmers

This Fall marks not only the return of leg warmers but also the debut of arm warmers. Yep, you heard me right, but before you laugh, give this trend a chance. These cozy, long, and often fingerless gloves are a great way to keep your arms and hands warm in this season's cropped-sleeved coats. Plus, the slouchy, sock-like styles give you lots of finger mobility. Sure, these are trendy, but they're also a cute and practical accessory to add to your winter look. Here are my picks for designer and non-designer versions.

Miu Miu Extra Long Gloves, $270, available here.

Juicy Couture Arm Warmers, $95, available here.

Mohair Fingerless Gloves, $30, available here.

To see the rest,

Portolano 10-Button Shearling Gloves, $200, available here.

Cable Knit Arm Warmers, $18, available here.

Crocheted Heart Arm Warmers, $24, available here.

Fingerless gloves? - looks more like some kind of cast to me.

i don't think legwarmers ever went out of style in mn. everyone wears them under their jeans. they're great!

I guess they make sense for added warmth. But if no one is going to see them, give me some cheap, not-so-cute ones! ----------- “Buy me a dream: Shopping for clothes isn’t about the things you need, it’s about the woman you’ll become when you wear them.”

I reread my post and I sound like a bag lady. Ripping up old clothes to act as leg warmers? Jeez.

Great idea whip. And I love the idea of wearing them under jeans. I actually like these

I don't really think they're for short sleeves, ANG. At least, I wouldn't wear them with short sleeves. I'd just wear them under my coat for added warmth. I've been wearing leg warmers for most of my life, too. Not for fashion, but for comfort. I wear them under my jeans and nobody can tell. Before they came back into style, I'd buy old sweaters for a dollar at the thrift store and cut off the arms to use as leg warmers.

The Miu Miu are cute!! The ones without fingers are cute but not for me.

This reminds me of when Britney Spears wore socks on her arms at the Super Bowl. Ah the Britney glory days.

I think they are cute but not very practical. Maybe we just shouldnt be wearing short sleeves out in the cold? ----------- “Buy me a dream: Shopping for clothes isn’t about the things you need, it’s about the woman you’ll become when you wear them.”

Hmm, good point!

Aw, thanks, Crispy! I love these. I need to buy a pair. This morning, as I was walking to work, I kept having to take off my gloves to change my iPod because the click wheel doesn't work unless my fingers are bare. So I really need these, STAT.
