Review Wednesday: Sock Theory Oversized Boucle Legwarmers

Wheeee!  It’s time for another Review Wednesday.  Today, I’m talking about the Sock Theory Oversized Boucle Legwarmers.  I got these back in February (a.k.a. the dead of winter), and they were absolute lifesavers.  I’d never worn legwarmers before in my life, but I found myself putting on the Sock Theory ones as often as possible, especially as rainboot liners. 

The boucle makes them very warm and soft, and when worn with boots, it looks like you’re wearing really “nubby” knee-high socks.  They’re also very stretchy; I have muscular calves but had no problems wearing these all day.  At only $12/pair, these have The Lingerie Addict seal of approval–they’re a must-buy.

P.S. Sock Theory has lots of other great legwear, like the items pictured below…but I find myself visiting just to admire the excellent photography.  All the modeling is done in-house by Sock Theory owner, Morgan!

Disclosure: I received the item discussed above free of charge for review purposes only.  The retailer/manufacturer/designer did not influence this review in any way, shape, or form.  All opinions presented here are the authors own.

    I haven't worn legwarmers since I did ballet as a child, but I can see how useful and cozy these would be (I actually used armwarmers a lot this winter). Definitely must get some for next winter! Those floral stockings are gorgeous as well!

    Hmm I've seen these worn but not often around here….when and with what outfits should you wear legwarmers?

    Oh those look so cozy.=) I actually bought my first pair of legwarmers this winter and they were great in boots when you wore a dress.

    Hey hon! I went on the site and I really love the pink shade! I got a legwarmers 2 years ago from American Apparel- 1 in black and 1 in raspberry but I haven't worn them much. I need to find them and revive them! Hope you can still come to my slumber party- if you can, send me a photo to wreckedstellar@gmail.com by Saturday night! xo, Mel

    Hey, just happened around your site, and I too happen to have a lingerie addiction. Then again I worked in a lingerie shop! I love the legwarmers, I have several from Leg Avenue, but my favorites are the thigh high socks. I wear them during the winter underneath my pants and I'm toasty warm all day! Wish I had these when I lived in a colder climate!
