Dos for the Anklets
Before you start picking up some of your favorite anklet designs or decide to make them on your own from the pieces of jewelry you already have, here are a couple of things you should do first.

Good moisturizing will do wonders to your skin making it smooth and well-hydrated, and wearing your anklets on the well-moisturized skin will make your anklet stand out by keeping the tone of your silhouette fresh and radiant.
Be careful about the size of your anklet, and make sure it looks natural and effortless on your ankle.

There is a whole range of different designs of anklets for women, so it should not be too demanding to find a piece that will perfectly match your shoes. Making a whole image is the key. Wearing shoes such as flip-flops, sandals or some other open-toe pieces is a perfect companion.
Combining your shoes with anklets is not the only thing to combine them with. They make a perfect match with some clothing pieces such as skirts, shorts, and sundresses. The point of anklets is to show them off and make a statement, that is their main goal. If you are in doubt, what are the best picks, then certainly you should go with plain golden or white gold anklets, or in a combination with some gemstones and beads. This summer, there was a trend of anklets made of blue stones and seashells, so keep a keen eye on this year’s trends, since there definitely will be some changes in the popular designs.
