What if we told you that there was an easy and effortless way to decorate and embellish your ankles now that socks are tights are no longer a must-have? That’s right, enter one of spring/summer’s most anticipated trends: fancy feet in the shape of shoes that include ankle bracelets. It’s like a minimalist guide to accessorizing without putting in any effort, a true 2 in 1 style hack.
One of the early adopters of this fancy feet concoction is the creative genius duo behind Attico: Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini. The pair first introduced ankle cuffs and straps back in 2016 with a whole range, from velvet to glitter embellished styles, including metallics, satin, leather and vinyl. It’s a fresh alternative to styling and the most creative and practical way to elevate your footwear game. If velvet straps aren’t your thing, invest in a more subtle piece like this brass-plated one you can also wear as a bracelet, or this sleek gold-plated cuff anklet for a minimalist touch. Some sandals and flats this season come adorned with an ankle plus one, like this gorgeous pair by Jil Sander that comes both as a pump and a flat in harmonious tones like blush and sky blue, as well as these embellished sandals perfect for beachside walks and summer festivals – whereas others give you the ideal neutral base to create your own ankle party!
If you’re lucky enough to stumble upon the pieces that already come with the ankle extra, then by all means share your treasures! If not, have no fear as we found a variety of iterations that will fit with any sandals/mule/shoe of choice for this season. Have a browse through our selection of anklets before they sell out, and simply add a chic leather mule, sleek sandal or a simple sophisticated flat to seal the deal.
