"Chokers" FW2016 Staple

Sara DunhamComment

The Choker trend has made a huge comeback this FW 2016 season and is more versatile than ever!  So lately, necks are the new cleavage. Chokers have resurfaced and adorned celebrities necks. Say hello to the skinny bit of fabric or leather that embellished many necks in the 90s. Chokers peaked in the 1990s, flooded the 2004 catwalks, came back again in SS 2012 and popped up last winter, last spring and again this season. 

Chokers looks good with pretty much everything; be it a masculine tuxedo jacket or a romantic gown. Style wise, you can use it as a layering piece. Accessorize like a pro by wearing the “it” necklace over a turtleneck. 

Wear it with another necklace. Layer your choker with a long, beaded necklace for “bohemian” vibe. Pair it with denim. Even a basic denim jacket and t-shirt are upgraded with this necklace. Team it with a girlie dress. Toughen up a feminine dress with this ribbon as necklace tied around your neck. The choker is delicate. It’s an unusual accessory and adds a different mood to your look; it gives a little bit of an edgy touch, like a rock star, to even the simplest of looks.

Chokers have a history too! During the French Revolution, women used to wear red ribbons around their necks to pay homage to those who met their death at the guillotine.

I say give it a try, you'll love it!!!
