DIY Leg Warmers

 

Who wishes it was 80 outside and sunny? I sure do! I hate being cold, but one of my favorite things is being able to layer. When you are out of the house my theory is that you can always take layers off if you get warm but you can’t put them on. One trend I keep seeing are all the super cute boot socks and leg warmers. Every time I go to shop for some to go with my new outfit I can’t find any. Many stores ran low this winter due to the high demand of them. I was determined to find the perfect pair; my outfit wouldn’t look right if I didn’t have any. My outfit is a oversized tank top with a knit cardigan and leggings. Accessories are a must so I have added an eternity scarf and leg warmers to wear with my riding boots. How do the leg warmers not complete this outfit right? This got me thinking why not make my own? This way I get to choose the color and design I like best. I am not super crafty nor am I able to make anything and have it turn out like the picture. Making leg warmers was much easier than I thought it would be! Here are the steps to make your own leg warmers in less than one minute.

*All you need is an old sweater and fabric scissors.

*Hold one sleeve out nice and straight.

*Cut from under the arm area to the top of the sleeve.

*Do the same to the other side and that’s all there is to it!

Frugal Fall Fashion Tricks

Everyone knows that following the most current trends can be expensive. Cherry Pickers is a great place to find those hot looks for much less! We’re also here to give you a few tricks to keep more cash in your pocket. If you’re a creative, do-it-yourself type of person, you’ll love these clever tips:

-Has your favorite pair of heels seen better days? Give them a shoe makeover! With a little bit of glue and some glitter, you can spruce up the tops, bottoms, or just the heels of those kicks you thought were toast!

-Do you hate when your socks get all bunched up in your boots? Try cutting off the sleeves of an old sweater to use as a sock look-alike! The new trend is for socks or leg warmers to show above the boot, but buying multiple pair can add up! Using old sweaters is not only inexpensive, but original and unique! It will surely get you a compliment from your friends!

-If you have difficulty making your non-skinny jeans fit nicely into those tall boots, try this trick. Fold up the bottom of your jeans about two or three inches (like you would if you were making them capris). Then wrap them tightly around your calf and pull up your sock (or sweater sock)!
