For many of us, the highlight of our childhood summers was making friendship bracelets and anklets with friends, then showing off what we learned at camp about weaving the strings in special ways. To help bring those memories alive again, we found a selection of adorable braided anklets to incorporate into your lineup. Whether you need a waterproof anklet for your upcoming seaside vacation or you are simply looking to add a pop of color to your favorite white sneakers, the following options have you covered. Can’t decide which style you like best? Try wearing a few at the same time for a boho, layered look.

1. Fancy Shiny String Ankle Bracelets
Fancy Shiny’s anklets feature dangling silver embellishments and colorful string.
Pros: The braided string in these anklets are wax-coated to protect them from water, sand and more; there are three separate anklets in this pack so you can wear one individually or stack them.
Cons: These have an adjustable band that stretches from 8 to 12 inches, so some may find it hard to find the right fit.
2. Infinityee888 Opal Moonstone Anklet Bracelet
These anklets feature woven wax cords and an opal woven closure.
Pros: This anklet is uniquely wrapped around five opal moonstones for an eye-catching take on a braided anklet.
Cons: The brand states that due to the natural property of the stone and hand-carved nature, each of them might have a difference.
3. Jeka Waterproof Ankle Bracelets

Pros: These colorful anklets are made to withstand the elements so they won’t get tarnished or worn from a day at the beach or a sweaty trip to the gym.
