The Best Choker Necklace Trends How to Wear a Choker
Thanks to an overall ’90s resurgence, this choker‘s a trend that’s been creeping back. In my memory, it is always associated with the dark smoky eyes and a lot of metal accessories. It is kind of a symbol of the punk rock scene for me. But in fact, the choker can be made of a variety of materials including velvet, lace, pearls, rhinestone or leather to dress up or down for everyday cool girls. So there’s a very good reason your favorite ’90s staple has somehow gotten huge again. It adds a little bit of an edgy (think “rock star”) vibe to even the simplest of looks.
Trends always come and go. Just like most trends in the fashion world, chokers are nothing new. I had quite a collection of vintage chokers that I found at thrift stores. But you can’t just dig into your grandma’s jewelry box to find one to wear. Every year when the old trends come back, they always have some new twist. And that is the fun part of fashion. Predictable yet unpredictable.
So what is the new twist about this new choker trend? For me, it is either super delicate, or very heavy metal. And I do love the variety of ways they can be layered with other necklaces.
If I was 20 years younger, I probably will try the cool dark leather with metal chains. Lol. But now, being on the more experienced side of a 40s sophisticated woman, I would rather wear a pearl one. In order to add that dramatic vibe, it must be black.
Have you tried this trend yet? What is your interpretation? I used the same choker for a dressy style like you see below.
I also wore it as you see today with a polished casual look as well. Which one do you like better?
Below are some cute chokers that you may want to give it a try!
