Ankle Cuffs… a brainstorm.

When I saw this Miu Miu pic on The Hinter, I thought… POST IMMEDIATELY. I super duper want ankle cuffs. Actually right now, I’m working on a wrist cuff… but since my DIY skills are laughable, there’s nothing to show you. but Ankle cuffs… perhaps mini-legwarmers… ankle warmers?

I don’t have a sewing machine, and all I know is one stitch in crochet… so hold onto your seats, I’m inspired….

; )

  1. Interesting idea… I can’t quite decide whether it works or not, I think I need to see more full-length pics. I do love the concept though - would be worth experimenting with different fabrics and colours!

  2. Unless you’re looking to flashback into the 1930’s I can’t imagine it working in modern dress

  3. I LOVE it. And I can totally see it working (perhaps with something like that emerald tulip skirt). They’d actually look super cute over this season’s opaque black tight, too. They remind me a bit of the 80s, when women would wear those fluffy little girl socks with super stilettos.

  4. I saw some catwalk photos of this look and I surprisingly liked it. I may have to try rocking it later on before it gets too cold (but what am I saying, I live in a place where girls wear shorts in winter-even if it snows).

    Sewing something small like that shouldn’t be too time consuming, so good luck on your diy project!

  5. @ashe… that’s exactly what i was thinking, b/c ankle socks are nice, but you can’t really wear them with heels unless you intend on never wearing them barefoot again…

    @dj… if you’re talking about spats… sign me up, i sooo want a pair of spats!

    @tokyo… oh, i can totally see japanese women pulling this off… you’ll have to post if you do it!

  6. there’s something with that colour and material with the pale skin that makes them look so pretty. i guess seeing as i’m still in high school wearing ankle warmers would get me a lot of stick but i guess frilly ankle socks with suffice?
    i love your blog by the way!

  7. Jennine-
    Perhaps spats like these? I’ve been itching to try and make myself a pair for months! (Obviously)

  8. Jennine-

    While I’m not Japanese, I do have a similar body structure so if the look works, I’ll post some pics :)

    Not to mention, if I see this look being copied out on the street (they love the sock-look over here: knee-highs, frilly ankles, socks with heels, etc) I’ll be sure to snap some photos.

  9. Wow, this is very cool. I too am inspired. :-)

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  10. Ah…I do this with elasticated lace and leftover satin material… if you don’t mind, perhaps I’ll post them on SB just to show you what a dodle it is!

  11. ok - this does look super cute, but I just know I’ll never be able to pull this off.

  12. ooh tokyo… i’ll check in to see these, and susie! i’m definitely going to see how this looks on you!

  13. jennine…you are one of the few that could pull this off. can’t wait to see how cute you look w/ these on.

    also, i taught myself how to knit 6 yrs ago, just to make scarves…so you can do it! i believe in you!

  14. These are really cute. I think they may have been inspired by an ankle monitering device or two. ;)
