While anklets have been around since ancient times and are still a perennial in our culture, they’ve gone in and out of fashion for the past few years. We say they’re due for a big, fine-jewelry comeback! In recent years, “arm parties” of bracelets; “finger parties” of rings; hand jewelry; ears full of studs, earring jackets, ear climbers and ear cuffs; layers and layers of necklaces; and body chains. Every body part has been loaded with jewelry except for the leg.
The wedding season is obviously the best season for showing off anklets. But you can also wear an anklet with a more trendy look— even jeans — or dress to pep up the outfit.
Ankle bracelets are also a great way to add a splash of color to an outfit heavy in neutral colors. Buying flashy ones can be quite an investment, as a statement color isn’t likely to go with every outfit.
Anklets are often paired with toe rings in India. How else can you draw attention to a new pedicure?
Some traditional varieties are shown below. These can be paired with lehengas, sarees and silk ethnic dresses.
