Summer is here and it's time to let the legs out! The fun sunny season brings skirts, shorts, sandals, bathing suits, and a whole new opportunity to sport your style. After you treat your feet to a pedi and a polish, why not top it off with some new ankle bling?
Anklets have a long and interesting history going back centuries to Pre-Dynastic Egypt, and though historically worn as a symbol to represent marital status, this adornment has evolved into simply a fun fashion accessory in most parts of the world today.
Anklets are an often unexpected way to call attention to your pretty feet during warmer months. Both sexy and playful, wearing an anklet is a unique way of expressing your style and showing off your fun personality. Here are 4 great ways to wear your anklets this season.
With Bare Feet on the Beach
Give your feet a little flash when you're digging your toes into the warm sand this summer. Glass beads reflect the sun's rays and bring a little bit of sparkle anywhere you are sitting.
Anklets have been around for longer than high heels and toenail polish. They have been used to attract a partner, to show that you have a partner, or just to flaunt wealth.
The oldest anklets are said to be more than 8000 years old. They were much more than just fashion jewelry then. Women in Mesopotamia used to wear them to show off their husband’s fortune. They have been common throughout the Middle East for many years.
Your flip-flops have never looked so good! This summer, pair the perennially-popular beach shoes with beaded handmade anklets. Summer sandals or shoes take on a more important look with the right anklet. Even bare feet look stylish and chic when they're adorned with a little shimmer and shine.
But not just any anklets. You want something fun, sophisticated, and totally you -- and well-made, hand-beaded anklets are perfect. You can even order your special colors, beads, and stones for a one-of-a-kind treasure. Here are a few suggestions for adorning your summer tootsies.
