Q:

Why do women wear ankle bracelets?

A:

Women wear ankle bracelets as a fashion statement. They are typically worn on one ankle, but may also be worn on both. Ankle bracelets are usually worn with shorts, dresses or sandals as a form of adornment.

Ankle bracelets also have historical meaning. Egyptian women once wore them as decor. Cleopatra is probably the most famous woman to have sported an ankle bracelet.

In India, ankle bracelets were traditionally worn by married women and unmarried girls; widowed women were not permitted to wear them.

In Western countries, women wear ankle bracelets without any particular rules or regulations. Many celebrities have been seen wearing ankle bracelets, including Mary Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Zoe Saldana and Rihanna. The trend has gone through phases of popularity, but is most typically worn in the summertime to complement bare feet and exposed legs.
