Anklets: Fashion Statement Or Item of Promiscuity?

An anklet is a piece of jewellery worn on the leg. It originates from India, and it is common to see an Indian woman wear an anklet on both ankles.


Much as the wedding ring is usually worn on the left ring finger, that way expressing its owner’s marital status, the anklets were also once gifted to the bride by the groom as a symbol of love and the wish to become her official husband.



If a woman wears an ankle bracelet on the left ankle, it was a sign that she is married and in an open relationship. These women are so-called hotwives in recent days.


Interestingly, if the anklet is in the right ankle, that means the woman is a lesbian or sometimes a call girl.


Nowadays, an anklet or ankle bracelet has become a fashion item. It is a fashion accessory and not different from wearing a necklace or a ring.




Gone are the days that wearing one would imply that you are a call girl or a hotwife.

So if you are considering wearing an anklet, here are simple etiquettes you should stick with:
  • First thing’s first, it’s fair to say that ankle bracelets don’t belong at the workplace or in any professional settings, except your office permits it.
  • Ankle bracelets that make noise or have bells or chimes on them can also be inappropriate in public quiet areas.
  • You should never wear your ankle bracelet with a pantyhose. It should be worn on bare legs only.
  • When wearing your anklet, make sure you pair it with some killer shoes. It should never clash with your footwear; instead, it should complement whatever you are wearing on your feet
  • One last tip: the perfect partner for your anklet is a toe ring in a matching style.



When worn correctly, in the right setting, position, and with a complementing outfit, ankle bracelets can make you score serious style points.


Just make sure you match yours to the occasion, your personal taste, and choose a style that suits you. So if you ask me, I would say an anklet will make a fashion statement any time, any day.
