Getting All Choked Up About Chokers

There's no better time than now to wear a strip of fabric around your neck. If you like it than you should've put a string on it!
|

Fashion is such a troll. It tells you one thing, but fast forward a decade and it says the complete opposite. Looking at how big of a moment chokers are having right now, you wonder why you took them off your accessory rotation in the first place. Because fashion is a troll, that’s why.

Unlike the elasticised, plastic chokers of our tweenage years though, today’s version comes in many forms. You have the ones that are basically pieces of string and ribbon (so economical, no?), slightly elevated ones in velvet and suede, and then you have the ones that look like weapons. Case in point: the chokers at Maticevksi’s Resort 2017 show and the silver Louis Vuitton one I have on above – actually called the “Heroic Choker”, by the way – that looks like it could shoot lasers out of the crystal. Sailor Moon feels, this one.

With variety comes a whole new world of layering and styling options. Above, I’ve styled my chokers in three ways. The first has a sportier edge, for those of you who like the whole sportswear-inspired situation (myself included). I stretched the 1970s factor a little further with a matching-ish v-neck sweater. The second is for all you fans of maximalism, though I toned it down with a white shirt and a skinny green choker (similar here). You’d think that two statement chokers (similar here) wouldn’t work, but they actually do. The third look is for dressier nights. I layered a buckled choker (similar here and here) over a delicate rose gold necklace, and styled it with a silky black shirt, though it’ll go with a minimal slip dress as well.

Actually, if you really think about it, chokers go with basically anything, especially the minimal ones. Wear them with a random graphic t-shirt, and it suddenly looks like you cared to get dressed. Who knew that wearing a strip of fabric around your neck could do so much?
