We were spot on when we told you that ankle strap heels would be the “it” shoe for spring. If you still haven’t gotten yourself a pair, we have another option for you: detachable ankle cuffs. Don’t panic–this isn’t some weird bondage trend that is going mainstream. The ankle accessory is simply a way to bring cuff love to your feet. The bangles wrap around your ankles and create the illusion of angle strap shoes. How it works:
Take a basic pump, like Vince Camuto’s Leather Peep-Toe Pumps ($28, down from $89) and add these gold ankle cuffs ($45). Voila! You’ve re-created Jeffrey Campbell’s black suede and gold pumps ($148) for less than half the price.
To save even more money, you can pair the cuffs with shoes you already own. Plus, gold ankle cuffs are the perfect way to add a little metallic to your wardrobe (so you can kill two spring trends with one accessory).
We love the edgy, yet glam, vibe of ankle cuffs. Would you rock them? Click through the slide show and let us know what you think!
