Will you marry me?
Wearing a toe ring first became popular in India as a way to let others know whether or not you were married. Today, in American culture, wearing a toe ring is all about self-expression.
Showing off your feet is a wonderful way to express your true style. Every year women spend over $1,300 making their feet look great with pedicures and colorful nail polishes.
So why not go the extra mile, and doll up our toes with some jewelry. Sadly, everyday cute little toe rings end up tucked away in draws. Gorgeous gold rings, sterling silver bands, and countless other rings that never get to see the light of day.
All because the owners aren’t sure what to wear with them and when. Are you dealing with doubts about how to style these unique pieces of jewelry?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn 8 ways you can style your wardrobe with a toe ring.
1. Streetwear Style Toe Rings
Wearing a toe ring can transform normal streetwear into a casual chic statement. Here are some examples of streetwear clothing that work well with a toe ring:
- Ripped Jeans
- Plain or Printed t-shirt’s
- Tank tops
Traditionally, sneakers were the only footwear included in streetwear. Yet, it doesn’t have to be that way. Instead try choosing casual footwear that shows off your toes like slides, sandals, or flipflops.
Since streetwear is all about being unconventional, we suggest wearing several rings. To switch things up, put the rings on different toes for each foot.
For example, on your left foot, you can put a ring on your big toe and middle toe. While on your right foot you can have rings placed on your pinky toe and the toe right next to it.
2. Formal Office Attire
While streetwear is fun, sometimes you have to set the t-shirt aside and grab a blouse. Wearing a toe ring to the office can be a fun way to express your style.
Here are a few tips on the best way to wear a toe ring in a professional setting:
- Color coordinate
- Small is better
- 2 ring maximum
Toe rings come in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs. For the most put-together look, have the color of your ring coordinate with your outfit.
Keep in mind, however, that color coordinating doesn’t mean they have to match. Instead of matching colors, choose colors that compliment each other. Gold rings, for example, are great at complimenting bright outfits that have yellow tones.
In addition to coordinating the color, you should also choose a small ring size (that still fits your toe of course). Smaller sized rings look more professional, and won’t steal away from the rest of your outfit.
Finally, we suggest you only wear 1-2 toerings to the office. While in theory, you could wear multiple rings on every toe, it might not be the look your employers are going for.
Business Casual Wear
Is your workplace a little more relaxed about wearing formal attire? If your office doesn’t require you adhere to strict formal attire guidelines, you can be more bold with your toe ring styles.
For business casual settings feel free to wear larger rings and colors that don’t match. You can look at local stores, or a wholesale jewelry location, for a variety of business styles.
3. Classy and Elegant
If you enjoy a sophisticated style or are thinking about trying one out, a toe ring can help complete your look. Yet, you’ll have to be careful about what rings you’re pairing with your outfit.
Here are a few elegant toe ring designs you need to check out:
A braided design will have interwoven strands of material. Sterling silver works best for these types of designs, giving the ring a tasteful polished look.
Next, we recommend rings that have a twist design. Usually, these designs are adjustable, making it easy to wear on any sized toe.
Finally, rings that have a knot design can be tasteful additions to your evening attire. One of the more popular types of knot designs right now is the Celtic knot. Again, we find silver works best when wearing this sophisticated piece of jewelry.
4. Athleisure Outfits
What do you get when you combine activewear with sportswear? Athleisure outfits of course.
If you love wearing work out clothes, even when you’re not going to the gym, this style is for you. The $44 billion industry is all about form-fitting, athletic-inspired attire.
Here are a few tips for wearing toe rings with athleisure outfits:
- Black pants
- Black tank top
- Black flip flops or slides
- Contrasting rings
We recommend wearing tight-fitting athleisure clothes, that are all dark in color. Dark tight pants, dark tank top, dark sports bra, and so on.
Then, pick one color for all of your toes rings to be. For example, you could choose red. Your ruby red rings will stand out on your toes, against all the dark clothing.
For dark colors, you can choose to go with black, navy blue, or dark gray. Try to stay away from dark colors like purple, brown, or indigo. Instead, choose traditional dark colors to allow the ring to have the biggest color contrast.
5. Chic Rocker
Do you want to rock and roll all night, and party every day? Then a chic rocker style might be right up your alley.
Rocker styles are edgy and don’t conform to traditional fashion trends. That’s why these styles go best with multiple rings on each foot.
We find these toe ring styles go great with rocker attire:
- Silver spiked
- Snake designs
You should also check out rings that have a spike added to them. You can choose to be conservative with a small spike, or turn things up a notch with large spikes on your rings.
Find Your Style
Toe rings are powerful fashion accessories that add personality to any outfit. We hope that our tips in this article will be a helpful guide for whenever you decide to wear them.
Yet, remember, our style suggestions are just that, suggestions. In the end, it’s up to you to decide how you want to look. After all your wardrobe should be a reflection of yourself, an expression of your personality.
