The anklet story
Also known as ankle bracelets, anklets in some cultures were traditionally worn by women as a talisman or a charm, typically on the left ankle. Some asian cultures use it to indicate the wearer is in a committed relationship. In many regions, anklets are worn by classical dance performers, bejewelled with tiny bells and ornaments.
Over the centuries, the anklet has evolved into purely ornamental jewellery. It is favoured for accessorising and adding a sprinkle of fashionable chic to your summer styles.
Ankle bracelets trends and styling
In our times, anklets are designed to look edgy, hip and funky, picked for multiple styling options. Crafted in precious metals like gold, silver, gold-plated silver, or put together with glass beads or beautiful rice pearls on leather and nylon, anklets are a unique jewellery option. Ankle bracelets are cherished for their style, colour, metal and design aesthetics. Worn on either anklet, these delightful accessories will add just the right sparkle to your final look. Read on to find out more about the current styles and types of anklets you can wear.

Ways to wear anklets
The best thing about anklets? There is no hard and fast rule - it’s up to you to wear it on either the left or the right ankle. Team it with formal attire, a breezy beach dress, shorts or jeans.
Wearing anklets on panty hose or on top of your pants or jeans is a huge no-no, but wearing it under your jeans, popping out discreetly from the hem, is absolutely fine.
Choose any style you are most comfortable with; slightly loose on your foot or somewhat snugly fitted around your ankle: anything goes.
Be dress-appropriate when you wear ankle bracelets. Of course, common sense demands you don’t wear diamond and gold anklets to the beach. Or the beaded or shell anklets with your formal dress. But hey, don’t let anything else deter you from flaunting these charming, playful accessories as and how you want to.
