Here’s an email we got from a reader about her style pet peeve…
I don’t have a fashion question…will you PLEASE tell women that ankle bracelets have no place in a professional environment? I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this…horrible.
We couldn’t agree more. We put ankle bracelets in the same category as tattoos and nose rings–a tacky distraction at work.
Wearing an ankle bracelet during business hours, no matter what your age, will destroy your credibility.
Ankle bracelets, or anklets as they are called, send out a sexy message , so don’t expect to be taken seriously!
What about in the evening with a cocktail dress? – Our opinion…not chic, and silly worn over nylons!
What about in summer with shorts or a bathing suit? Fine - if you are on vacation, just for fun at the beach.
But the truth is for everyday wear ,they are not in style and aren’t age appropriate.
Our feeling is that they’re best left to belly dancers and barefoot surfer girls.
