Many people don't like the trend of leg warmers, it's one of those '80s return' pieces. However, I love the look of leg warmers, when the look is done 'right'. 

Here's my opinion of leg warmers 'do's and don'ts':

Colors: 

DO: (1) wear simple/solid colors, i.e. black, tan, grey.
(2) Wear the occasional colorful one, some patterns in leg-warmers can look really cute and spice up a simple outfit, or a color can make the colors blend and have the overall color stand out.

DON'T: buy them in every color and pattern, some patterns in leg-warmers can overwhelm the entire outfit. 

Shoes!
DO:
-Heels: With most heels leg-warmers look really cute, and can really make the heel look casual in a good way.
-Flats: A lot of leg warmers look totally cute with flats, they add and bring out the flats you choose for that outfit.

DON'T:
-Sneakers: Never seen the look, look good.
-Sandals: Oh boy! Don't throw on a pair of sandals and leg warmers the balance is way off.

*Flip flops: On VERY rare occasions do flip flops look good with leg warmers, if you go for the summer dancer chic kind of look around the house and can pull it off; the more power to ya! but if not, just stay away from the fashion nightmare waiting to happen.

Outfit pieces:

DOs & DON'Ts:
-Jeans: Straight leg & Skinny are your best options, flares can make the leg warmer look bunched, sometimes skinny flares are alright depending on the jean and the leg warmer.
-Skirts: So cute! Of course, it does depend on the skirt, but most make the look appear comfy and casual.
-Dress: Most of the time they're only good with casual dresses, especially knits and sweater dresses.
-Shorts & Capris: Rarely can a short pant and leg-warmer be pulled off, but again, if you can make it happen, more power to ya!

Certain accessories & hairstyles can make or break the leg-warmer style too.
Recommended accessories & hairstyles:

-Messy bun
-straight
-wavy
-pony tail
-close knit dance bun

-scarves
-charm bracelets
-petite necklaces
-hobo bags

Looks for the actual 'Leg Warmer':
-followed over at the top
-bunched a bit
-folded in half

With most looks I don't care for them pulled up straight all the way. I also prefer knit looking leg warmers better, spandex is a dance leg warmer look, not a fashion one.
