Remember anklets? Chances are you wore one made from seashells on tropical family holidays or as a teen when you were going through your “boho” stage. Well, like every other major trend from the ’90s, ankle bracelets are back in a big way. This time around though, they have been delicately upgraded with versatile chains that are adorned with gems, pearls and even diamonds. But the best bit is they are no longer relegated to the beach. In fact, ankle bracelets should now be worn with higher-end pieces and even to the office or paired with heels for a night out.
