19 Chic Ankle Bracelets That Prove This Trend Doesn't Belong In The '90s — PHOTOS

Few things are as clear to me when I think about my childhood as friendship and ankle bracelets. If you were a child from the '90s, you're more than familiar with this trend — Going through boxes of different colored strings and choosing four or five to make the perfect color combination. On rainy days, this was my preferred activity with my older sisters, especially when we went off to summer camp.

While anklets were all the rage in our childhood, they're coming back with full force. Fashion It-girls, bloggers, and models on the runway alike have all been spotted wearing them (including Chloé and Calvin Klein), proving that while this little piece of jewelry may feel childish, there's definitely a super cool, chic way to pull them off. And, according to Vogue, our favorite twins Mary-Kate and Ashley actually had two anklets in their jewelry collection for The Row back in 2011. They're always way ahead of the fashion curve.

In a world where we've basically created and rocked every single necklace out there — Statement, body chains, chokers — It's so refreshing to see an unexpected accessory like this one pop up. And while anklets were practically made for boho lovers (so many colors and charms in mind), there are sophisticated and grown up way to wear them. Mainly, pairing them with raw hem jeans, elegant flats, or with your favorite midi dress. Whichever you choose, you'll totally rock it.
