The Anklet Trend Is Back For Summer 2020, According To Influencers
By Kelsey Stewart May 17, 2020
If you were one to pull out your puka shell anklet at the start of every summer in the '90s, you've probably been ecstatic about the throwback accessory returning over the past few years. On the other hand, if you're skeptical about the anklet trend coming back, don't fret, there are plenty of other options besides oversized seashells. With variations ranging from dainty, barely noticeable chains to colorful beads, there's a style that fits just about every sartorial taste. But if you need further proof, just look to influencers for reassurance.
By now, you've probably noticed that the accessory is different today than when you wore it the first time around. "Anklets during the '90s were considered mostly a girlish beach accessory, usually made of shells and colored strings," Marianna Derizioti, founder of Mayol Jewelry, tells TZR. "Anklets today have upgraded into a chic, all-year-long accessory. They are made from more expensive materials like pearls, semi-precious stones, or delicate chains." Derizioti says anklets remind her of the choker comeback, as both trends evolved into delicate, high-fashion interpretations.
And while shells aren't the only style on the market, the resurging popularity did ontribute to the return of anklets. "I think that anklets slowly resurfaced in 2018 during the puka shell mania, but mostly as a summer accessory," Derizioti explains. "2020 on the other hand is definitely the year of the anklet comeback. Anklets have been repeatedly spotted during major fashion shows and street styles as an essential everyday accessory. It's officially considered not only a beach accessory, but an element that instantly elevates the whole outfit."
