Why Anklets Are the Biggest Jewellery Trend This Summer

Words By Katelyn Kalafatis

The anklet trend is back and hot for the summer. We've rounded up the best in every price-point so you don't have to.

Luxe

Last year, there was a resurgence of the most iconic trends from the Y2K. And from what we can tell 2021 is already following suit.

Like most trends inspired by the fashion icons of the 2000s, the anklet is back but has evolved into its most modern and fashionable form. Gone are the bohemian-inspired days of crochet and plaited threads, this season’s anklet trends see designers use precious stones and delicate chains to completely elevate the classic take on the jewellery piece.

We are in love with the delicate anklet by Los Angeles born brand Jacquie Aiche. The height of high-quality ankle jewellery and designed to be mixed and matched, it features a bezel setting and spring-ring fastening, with a 14k yellow gold chain, showcasing 5 single sparkling emeralds.

You’ll be glad to know that we have well and truly stuck to the luxury criteria in our ‘luxe’ category’s curation. Although pricey, these carefully chosen Monde picks are the designer’s finest. You only have to scroll to see why these ankle-hugging chains are the most divine du jour of all current jewellery trends.

Less

Don’t be fooled by the name of this category, these Monde picks are anything but less when it comes to this year’s hottest jewellery trend.

The use of gold plating and semi-precious stones means you’ll still be paying a fair price for your on-trend summer accessory. Paying a humble homage to the beachgoers we saw rocking their shell anklets on the sand, a common theme for this price bracket is the use of natural pearls.

The Spindle anklet from WWAKE is handcrafted from 14k polished gold and features a string of freshwater pearls. With a clasp fastening closure, you can ensure your new favourite accessory stays put for the summer, some seasons or can even be cherished for a lifetime.

Tarnish and general wear and tear are not a worry for the items in this category. Made from luxe materials these pieces guarantee longevity.

You’ll find every excuse to bear your ankles with this lustrous piece of luxury forever being your ankles new favourite companion. So, take a look and fall in love with some of our favourites in this budget and quality conscious category.

Perhaps you’ve already seen this crafty take on your Instagram feed. Coming in vibrant chokers, bracelets and now anklets, colourful, mismatched beads are on trend in a big way for 2021.

Summer means colour and fun, and after the 2020 we all endured, who wants to adorn themselves with sombre accessories? No thanks. These flamboyant and frivolous beads come in every imaginable colour, shape and size adding a child-like playfulness to your warm-weather wardrobe.

The Petit Alaia Anklet from Anni Lui is the perfect not-so-subtle summertime accessory. Made with a gold-plated brass base and strung together with multicoloured glass beads, this is one of those pieces that may just challenge the whole ‘happiness can’t be bought’ thing.

Capturing the nostalgia of the 2000’s hottest jewellery trends while incorporating the materials of your favourite candy coloured necklace you wore as a kid; this unlikely combination is guaranteed to make you smile. So, take a scroll, and consequently, maybe a stroll down memory lane as you reminisce on the plastic BFF bangles and lockets that created the foundation for your love of all things fashion.
