I remember making beaded anklets with those jewelry maker sets from Toys R Us back in the 90s…those were my go-to items for friendship anklets, birthday gifts or the perfect gift for my mom on Mother’s Day, or for my sisters on special occasions!
Anklets are yet another 90s trend that is making its comeback. With the weather hotting up and summer right around the corner- those subtle, yet super sexy accessory is a must add to your summer ensemble. We’ve exchanged our plastic beads for diamonds and our string for a gold chain — but don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten our humble anklet beginnings.
This time around, however, the ankle bracelet trend is more about high-end fashion sophisticated look than hippie surfer girl vibes. Although an elegant gold-wrapped shell theme is so hot right now, the fashion connoisseurs of our time are adding a touch of chic and glam to this 90s trend.
If you thought this trend was only appropriate for festivals and daytime beach looks, think again…Anklets are the ideal way to add a touch of fun to an evening look: dinner, weddings, engagements, and night occasions just as much as they are a day look. Wear them with sandal heels for a little extra something.
You’ve seen those shell anklets all over your Instagram page, and here, we have 6 takes on the 2019 anklet trends.
