Although we often look at photos of ourselves from decades past and think, "What was I wearing?" » it seems that these fashion trends inevitably come back one day. So why ? What makes the fashion world go round in circles?

To truly understand this, you need to put yourself in the shoes of a designer. After all, there are only so many versions of tops, bottoms, dresses and accessories one can create before looking to the past for inspiration.

Even the best and most inventive designers look to the past to see what worked (and what didn't) to determine what trends they should recreate next. In the same way that modern musicians will sample music from older artists in their songs, fashion designers will take a retro look and make it their own.


Women who were children in the 90s are now adults. So what better time could there be to look back on this era?

Because not only will these trends be nostalgic for these 90s women, but it's also the perfect time to introduce these looks to younger people as if it were the first time.

For example, remember the fashion industry's response to mini and micro mini skirts in the 80s and 90s? Bring back peasant skirts. So it makes sense that the answer to early 2000s fashion is to throw it back to the '90s.

Wondering how to achieve this look? Don't worry, it's easy! Just follow these do’s and don’ts:


Choose a thin and delicate anklet
Wear anklets with cropped pants
Wear them with cute and casual sneakers
Wear them barefoot on the beach
Wear them under long pants to work as a sassy secret to yourself
Wear them on vacation
Wear them to festivals
Wear them whenever they make you feel good


Wear anklets with tights or leggings
Choosing a style with too thick a chain or woven fabric
Wear them with high heels

Easy, right? But if we had to choose one rule for new versions of this classic jewelry, it would be that dainty and thin is best.

Choose an anklet with a delicate chain in a metal that matches your skin tone. In general, if your veins are bluish, it means you have a cool complexion and should choose white metals like silver or white gold. If your veins look more green, or if you have ebony or espresso-colored skin, you have a warm complexion and should look for yellow gold or copper jewelry.

But remember, as with everything in the fashion world, rules are made to be broken. If you feel that your warm or dark skin tone makes a beautiful silver chain pop perfectly, then go for it!


In conclusion, have fun with it. If you remember the anklet trend fondly and want to be a part of bringing it back to life, find a way to wear them that works for you! Whether on vacation or for drinks with friends on the weekend, you can't go wrong.

Or, if you're trying to wear anklets for the first time, don't be afraid to experiment. Just remember that delicate and chic is best for the modern take on this trend and you can really wear them with anything (except tights, never tights).

90s fashion is all about feeling fun and flirty and is the perfect answer to the dull trends of the early 2000s. So get those ankles out and dress them up!
