The Choker Comeback

When was the last time you wore a choker? Chances are you were about 10 years old and they were as cool as gel pens and candy cigarettes in the playground.

Chokers have undergone quite a makeover since then. Out with the cheap black plastic and in with velvet, colour, layers and embellishment.

Let’s skip over the bizarre trend of choker dresses and embrace chokers how they were meant to be worn-as jewellery and accessories.

Although so far, I’ve only bought black chokers (which go with everything FYI), I’m loving all the colourful ones like the  Bershka set above.

Wearing several chokers (if your neck is long enough!) or mixing them with dainty necklaces is the ultimate style statement.

Zara have some of the classiest chokers you’re ever likely to see. Also models with impossibly long necks…

I also really like bohemian chokers and pendant chokers. Etsy is the best place to find crystal chokers like this from ShopCrystalChild.

I also love the contrast in styles of this velvet and opal choker necklace from Alapopjewelry.

If you want to customise your own choker, then hit up Choker Saint on Etsy.com.

For a punk vibe, try Nine Crow St’s heart chokers. I’m in love with this lilac one.

I find the cord chokers are  messy and difficult to wear and the chunky ones look a bit odd so I’m sticking to skinny lace styles. Most chokers are adjustable to prevent them being too lose or too tight.

However if you can perfect the bow style, go for it!

 This black lace choker is one of a set of two from Penneys and is the best fuss-free accessory ever!

  1. That pink opal choker? Freaking beautiful, haha! I hadn’t given much thought to chokers when they first came back, but they are growing on me! I might keep a look out for a cute, inexpensive one. But I might also just… forget. 😉
