My Favorite Summer Jewelry

Anklets. I love anklets. I always have and always will. Some seasons they are “in” and sometimes they are hard to find. Every summer, however, I find a few to wear all through the hot months. They add a bit of an “oomph” to an outfit.

Before I bought Kiskadee, I was taking online classes at Parsons School of Design. My absolute favorite class was the History of Fashion. We looked at anklets in one lesson. Anklets date back to Egypt sometime between 4400 – 3800 B.C. They made an appearance in sultry French photos in the mid-1800s and made their way into Vogue shoots in the ’60s and ’70s. Most recently, like chokers, they were big in the ’90s. They’ve been making a tentative comeback since 2019.

All types of anklets are fun to play with. Layered anklets on top of sneakers can elevate a look. Pairing a bohemian shell anklet with heels can add depth to an outfit. Here are a few of my favorites arriving in the store this week. Selection and price vary, with most between $18 – $28. Feel free to text me at 703-606-5254 and I can send pictures and prices of all the choices.
