Summer is undeniably shaping up to look and feel a lot different this year. However, just because we are all spending our time indoors doesn't mean the fashion connoisseurs of the world aren't still trying to drip. One of the most popular jewelry trends that bubble all throughout summer is anklets. Usually, they are worn to add that extra edge to a swimsuit look or simple sandal situation, but now that inside clothes are the new norm, socks are replacing shoes and anklets are being styled on top of them.
It might seem a tad frivolous at first to put an anklet over a sock, but when you're sitting on your couch in the same gray sweatpants for the third day in a row wishing you could somehow try harder without actually trying, you'll remember this story, put on your anklet, and experience a temporary feeling of happiness you didn't even know you needed.
So far, we've been eyeing the trend in three main categories: Nike socks with chain anklets, bright-colored socks with beaded anklets, and sheer socks with pearl anklets. Either one or all of these duos is bound to strike a chord with you and once you see how inexpensive this new summer styling tip is, you'll probably end up stocking up on all three variations.
Nikes and Chains
The rise of Nike tube socks on Instagram is unlike anything we've seen before. It's as if someone cued all the fashion girls on the app to wear and post them all at the same time, instantly birthing a new trend. Regardless, the affordable logo-adorned socks are everywhere and chain anklets just so happen to make them look twice as good.
Bright Colors and Beads
Obsessed with color? Then this duo is for you. Take any bright pair of socks and layer a crafty beaded anklet atop for a kitschy summertime look. I haven't spotted any on Instagram yet, but I am betting we'll see tons of this combo paired with Birkenstock-type sporty sandals sooner rather than later.
Sheer and Elegant
Sheer socks with darling pearl-adorned pearl anklets? Yes, that's pretty much an Instagram moment waiting to happen. If your style airs a tad more on the polished side and Nike socks really don't seem to have a place in your "aesthetic," then this is the sock-and-anklet coupling for you.
