Throwback accessories are having a major moment in 2019. From playful hair clips to bright beaded bags, they seem to be everywhere — and a scroll through the new arrivals sections of your favorite retailers will show you that the latest one has joined the mix: anklets. And now that the sun is shining and our ankles are showing, there's never been a better time to get on board — especially with all the new ankle bracelets to hit the market. (Spoiler: They're really good.)

This season, there's an anklet for every style out there, starting with minimalists. Case in point: This $94 Freshwater Pearl Anklet by Adornmonde has the perfect amount of pearls without being too flashy.

But not to fret, trendsetters: There are plenty of options for you, too. If you want to channel your inner 2000s child and still look put together, this seashell anklet by Isabel Marant makes that possible. Or, to really make a statement, throw on one (or a few) of these colorful pieces from Dannijo for $88 each.

You might not see the point in adding an anklet to a look, which is fair — it is all the way down at your ankle, as the name would suggest, and even has the potential to get covered up, depending on what you're wearing. However, it adds a touch of charm — a certain je ne sais quoi, you could say — that more traditional jewelry pieces don't always offer. Plus, the piece draws attention to your carefully chosen footwear, giving unexpected flair to a simple shoe.

And if you're still not convinced, just know that Mary-Kate Olsen gave the trend her stamp of approval in April 2019 at the Youth America Grand Prix's 20th Anniversary Gala. It's also become an influencer staple, with It-girls like the ever-stylish Pernille Teisbaek and trendsetter Monikh Dale sporting the trend on their grids. With such a strong backing, there's no doubt it will continue to grow — and probably grow on you, too.

Without further ado, 15 new anklets that will quickly become your go-to accessory this summer.
