Perfectly Shaped for Awesome Looks
Jewellery has always been a way to complement a woman’s attire. Right from casual chic to vintage ethnic and everything in between, there’s something for everyone to indulge in.
But with the increasing trend of minimalistic elegant jewellery, little trinkets like rings and bracelets and nosepins are the rage. A lot of young girls and women prefer these snazzy accessories in their everyday wear.
A common trend today is the fusion of clothes and a mixing pot of cultures. Indo-western wear has become quite the norm with women combining tunic or kurtis with jeans, or wearing pants with embroidered blouses, or long silk maxi tunics, or crop tops with skirts, or dhoti pants. And so, Indo-western jewellery is quite the vogue. Sleek, suave designs that add a little oomph to your wardrobe are in fashion. One of the most versatile options in accessories is the Indian payal or anklet. From centuries, married and unmarried women alike have adorned themselves with beautifully carved, exquisite silver and gold anklets. But nowadays, even the traditional payal has gotten a makeover.
There are a variety of anklets in the market, right from single string beads to silver choker like bands called Choklets(Choker + Anklets) to delicate strings with tiny ghunghroos.
Here’s looking at the different ways you can style your feet with artistic anklets.
Double chain anklets – These are thin and sleek and are tied together with two chains having a single charm or trinket on it. Pair them with a snazzy cocktail dress and peep-toes, and you’re ready to shine. They also make your feet look dainty if you wear them with floral long skirts.
Beaded Anklets – Colourful beads and shells come together to give you a casual, artsy look for a relaxed day at the beach or for sunbathing by the swimming pool.
Single string anklets – These delicate designs have a strange allure and completely personify that ‘less is more’. They complement jeans and capris worn with plain cotton kurtis.
Anklet with attached Toe ring – These anklets consist of a band around your ankle and a string that runs across your foot and is connected to a toe ring. Usually studded with pearls or stones, they add a rich, festive feel to your outfit. These are best worn for Indian wedding functions like mehendi or sangeet. Another way to go is to pair them with open sandals or flipflops combined with shorts for a casual day spent traipsing around the streets.
Single foot anklets – These are usually more like a choker or a band rather than a chain. They fit snugly to your foot and are worn just on one foot and go well with ankle length jeans.
Anklets with Tassels and charms – Such funky looking anklets sometimes have leather straps with colourful tassels or are attached with multiple charms to give you a trippy, bohemian look and add a dash of colour to your wardrobe.
So the next time you want to embrace your free spiritedness, go wild with the plethora of anklets around that make your feet feel like a million bucks!
