Whether it’s thick, thin, lace, velvet, metal, metallic, black, white or colourful, a choker is this season’s hottest accessory. It packs a major punch for such a tiny embellishment. It’s been seen on practically everyone, from A-list celebrities, to runways to bloggers and influencers alike. Anyone who’s anyone has been wearing a choker this year. It instantly turns even the most basic of outfits into a trendsetting street-style statement. For someone who grew up in the 90’s rocking all sorts of chokers, I never thought I’d see the day when they made their comeback, but I’m happy they did. I think it has to do with the fact that there’s something incredibly sexy about tying something around your neck? Although it gives a slight grunge, kind of edgy feel, it’s still flirty and fun.
Although chokers may seem a little intimidating at first, there’s really no wrong way to wear them. Style them with your favourite high-wasited jeans and crop top for a little retro feel or with a crisp white button down and pencil skirt to give a fun and flirty feel to an otherwise basic professional look. A dark floral dress, a vampy lip and over-the-knee socks or boots paired with a velvet choker gives the illusion of traveling back in time, to the 90’s, but with a fresh and new vibe to it. Love a statement choker with an off-the-shoulder top for a real trendy and current feel. Today I kept it simple with a wrap choker paired with a basic tee. I gave it a slight edge with sequin pants and a chic faux leather bomber jacket. Can you tell I’m ready for the holiday season, just give me all the sparkle.
