On a whim I decided to tie a thin black ribbon around my neck the other night to compliment the deep red dress I was wearing and I’m realizing now that I’m not alone. Chokers are back and making a bold appearance on a number of the style set. From Emma Watson to Rihanna, chokers are turning up the form of wispy and open-ended gold bands, leather “belts” with metal clasps, layered in dazzling crystal, and simple black ribbons — all neatly wrapped around the neck. The look makes an equally bold statement to the many layered and length necklaces that are also trending for spring — with a decidedly more minimalistic effect. Here’s some choker-inspiration for you to draw from for the weekend!
Whether slim and sleek or a big chunky chain, choker necklaces are back from the 90′s, and for very good reason. Once spring/summer ’14′s runway like Chanel and L’Wren Scott started the charge, choker necklaces have been seen on everyone from the street style set, to off-duty models, to the red carpet and back again. Isn’t it time you jumped on this oh-so-stylish trend?
Try pairing a scoop neck tee with a bold beaded or metal collar, or a chunky gold chain choker with your must-have summer blazer — there are so many styles of choker heating up the fashion set, that’s it’s hard to go wrong. We’ve even seen a simple ribbon tied neatly around the neck add an ultra urban, yet feminine touch to even the simplest outfits.read more
