When you think of anklets, you may just think of a silly fun 2000s trend, but the quirky accessory has circled back to become a staple piece of jewellery in 2021.

Thanks to high-brow celebs such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and JLO, the anklet has gained a lot of limelight and it's safe to say we're starting to get a little jealous.

Despite what you may think, anklets are not just a summer accessory. You can style them with a nice long dress, some fitted trousers and heels, and even with a nice pair of sneakers well into autumn, to give your look an upgrade.

From diamond extravaganzas to simple gold chains, we've found the cutest anklets out there. Start shopping our top picks below.

Tips for styling an anklet

Anklets are a fab way to elevate any basic outfit, and we've got a few tips on what clothes to pair with an anklet and how to style it.

Dresses (mini, midi or maxi) are great to pair with your anklet given that your bare leg will be on show. If you're going for a colourful anklet then make sure to colour coordinate with your dress, otherwise, a simple silver and gold will work with most tones.

In terms of footwear, open-toe shoes are a perfect companion, HOWEVER, a pair of plain white sneakers or other neutral-toned flats will also look fab. Remember, if you opt for a pair of heels, avoid wearing a pair with an ankle strap.

Final tip - don't overdo it. Yes, we love colourful beads and extravagant diamonds just as much as the next gal, but only as long as it is done tastefully.
