The choker trend first made an appearance in the 90s but has since evolved from being an iconic accessory for the grunge scene. Now you can find a more elegant and daintier style of chokers. Celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington- Whitley and Rihanna have been loving the new, graceful take the trend. This sophisticated look is much more wearable even for the most formal or informal occasion.
What defines a choker is that it is a necklace, fitted close to the neck, above the collarbone and is designed to elegantly show off and elongate the neckline. Chokers can be a plain strand of metal or adorned with crystals and pendants.
When styled properly the choker trend can complete any outfit and be a perfect piece for all ages. Here are some tips to wear the choker trend the new and fresh 2018 style!
1.) Keep your top’s neckline in mind
Chokers can clash with certain necklines, for example, a polo or turtle neckline would hide or push your choker out of place while a v-neckline with a choker is great for a night out or a round neckline is great for a more understated, casual look to dress down your choker.
2.) Layer your chokers
Layering is a great way to make a statement with the new, delicate design of chokers. Two or three thin strands of one metal can look beautiful or layer different designs, textures and metals for an eye-catching look.
3.) Wear subtle earrings
It’s important to not distract from your choker with statement earrings that are likely to clash and touch the high lying necklace. Chokers, therefore, look best with subtle earrings such as studs.
