Accessory Trends: The Anklet

Accessory Trends: The Anklet

Fashion trends come and go but one particular accessory seems to have made a surprising recovery – yes, we’re talking to the beloved by all 90s girls and women anklet! Anklets, or also known as ankle bracelets and ankle chains are not just super cute but can transform your entire outfit without being its centerpiece.

There are really no rules when it comes to wearing anklets, though the skinnier the bracelet, the better it will look on your ankle. There is a wide range of options to choose – from single to double strands, beaded, ones with pearls and gemstones, or even with customized initials! As a rule of thumb, if you have heavier ankles, a double strand and larger embellishments would work better, while girls with skinnier ankles should look for smaller charms and beads.

If you’re looking for a more luxurious or sophisticated look, the golden anklet is your best friend. Golden anklets, especially those decorated with precious stones, look stunning on more mature women and are perfect for special occasions. Silver anklets, on the other hand, are cheekier and look equally good with ballet pumps, flats or high-heeled sandals during the summer.

Unlike the classical 90’s anklets, the ankle chains we see today tend to have a more minimalist design. They are particularly liked by runway models – Calvin Klein recently demonstrated a stunning collection, which centerpiece was a pair of coolest satin sneakers in combination with a thick gold ankle chain.


With its versatility, the anklet is the perfect summer accessory and pairing it with shoes is easier than you can imagine. The only rule you should follow when it comes to anklets is making sure it can be seen – pair with a skirt, capri pants or a bathing suit for a sophisticated beach look!
