The throwback to the 90s continues with the resurgence of the choker. Spotted on ‘it’ girls Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner at Coachella, this accessory has progressed from festival chic and is now having a moment in the style spotlight.
This necksessory has been reimagined to match the styling of summer 2016. So, before you dust off your stretchy, tattoo-style number, consider these tips on how to style the new-look choker.
The new choker features soft textures like velvet and suede to make an understated statement. Step up your workwear wardrobe by pairing your choker with a crisp white shirt – don’t forget to open up the collar.
If you invest in one choker this season then let it be the wrap choker. It gives a layered approach to the trend – perfect if you’re a bit wary of drawing attention to your neck. This piece is the go-to accessory for a festival chic look. (Just another item to add to your Rocking the Daisies packing list.)
As Rihanna shows us, an embellished choker can glam up your look. Ideal to step up your off-duty look – contrast a crystal choker with a pair of boyfriend jeans and T-shirt.
If you’re struggling to make the transition from necklace to choker then consider a hybrid: choker + statement pendant. The ideal way to step up a monochrome ensemble or your LBD.
For an edgy interpretation of the trend, the chain choker is on point. Find your favourite from Woolies here.
