The look: Mata Anklets, $280
Okay, ladies, so when was the last time you thought about an anklet? Like, dead honest last time? It’s been a while, right? Well, J.Lo wore one on her trip to St. Tropez last week, and she serves up all the trend goals ever…. Soooo.
.... It might just be time for us all to get re-acquainted with ankle accoutrements, in the form of Grace Loves Lace aisle-worthy ankle wrappers. ((P.S. of course they’re getting new life thanks to Grace Loves Lace, this brand is notorious for knocking us out with newness)).
GLL has always been dedicated to sustainable fashion, but the Australian atelier has taken it to a creative new level with its latest collection, “La Bamba.” In addition to stunning new veils (all under $490) accented with sparkle tulle, floating pearls, silk burnout and delicate lace, GLL has put the extra fabric to work in a dreamy line of matching accessories.
The collection of scarves and anklets (ranging in price from $80 to $280) playfully repurposes formal ceremony veils into unique, fun accessories for the reception. These complementing styles allow the bride to make multiple fashion statements throughout her special day, all while she maintains a cohesive look all night long.
Now, before we zero in on the fancy footwear, let’s just think about all the cute ways, wheres, and whys to rock the trend:
The look: Artemis Anklets, $230
Your shoes need some extra sass.
We love when brides can step out in some seriously-enviable stilettos for the big day, but in all honesty, a pair of reliable, sturdy, and steady heels are all she needs. No extra bling, no neck-breaking, sorely-supportive straps, etc. But for the photos and the under-the-dress interest that we all look for from her shoes, a festive, sassy anklet can more-than make up for any basic boringness.
You don’t want to wear shoes.
We will always be here for the barefoot bride - she is smart, she is realistic, she is carefree, and she is who we all want to be by the end of the night. In recent years, beachy brides fell in love with the look of bridal sandals, fancy flops, even lacy or crystal-woven jewelry for their feet, but now they can get all their pop from a pretty polish job and a pair of GLL anklets.
You want to make a statement at your after-party.
Okay, yeah, these anklets are an 'I Do' for the reception, but we love them even more for the after-party. Maybe you’ve stripped down from your mermaid dress to a Hustler-style mini, or perhaps you’ve changed into shorts? Maybe you’re embracing an endlessly-comfy pajama ensem or you’ve invited your crew to a pool party part 2 and want to dress up your bridal bikini or sexy one-piece with some extra ankle eye candy. These will help you do it. That’s for damn sure.
