It seems that the anklet, which started to regain popularity last year, is going to be one of the must-have accessory of summer 2017. Many trends from the ’90s are back (whether we like it or not) and the anklet is one of them. Thankfully, I didn’t throw mine away. I have a couple of cute ones.
I was born in a seaside town so I’ve always considered the anklet a very cute compromise when it comes to beach jewelry. I don’t know about you, but I never found watches, rings, necklaces and bracelets tan and sand-friendly, unless they’re very dainty. But even if you don’t live by the sea, an anklet is a good way to style your ankles which, thanks to skirts and cropped pants, are receiving more attention, lately.
Anklets, like other jewels, have ancient origin. They were worn even five thousands years before Christ. Just in case you thought they were a modern way used by women to adorn themselves, or maybe a Jenner/Hadid/Kardashian’s “discovery”.
In the ’60s, when oriental cultures started to be very fascinating in Europe and US, clothing and accessories (and music, of course) from countries like India, Nepal and Pakistan became very fashionable. And the anklet became pretty popular, like kaftans and tie and dye and psychedelic fabrics.
So, as often happens,
history fashion repeats itself. The anklet is a must-have, again.
These are the anklets I found for you. Dainty, beaded, chunky, made of satin… there’s plenty of choice.
