My Chokers and How To Style

In the last year the trend of chokers has become more and more in style, and I just can’t get enough. I’ve been wearing chokers and high necked necklaces since probably fourth grade, and with it becoming more popular again, I’ve indulged and ended up buying and making more and more. SOOO I thought I’d go ahead and share some of the ones I’ve collected over time:

One of my favorite parts about these trendy pieces is that you can layer a lot of them, or wear just one for a sophisticated and hot look. They can be fun, or fancy, and the styles are practically endless. Some of my chokers are looser fit and kinda lay around my collar bones while others sit higher up staying higher up (dare I say choking) my neck. To get more diversity from normal chokers I’ve even taken to using bracelets that were designed to be double or triple wrapped on your wrist as a necklace. Another beautiful thing with these necklaces is how they can really accentuate a neckline or add a whole new layer to an outfit. Some ways I style a few different types of chokers:

The biggest choker trend right now that I’ve seen all over Instagram and other social media is probably the “Tattoo Chokers” or “Jelly Chokers” which were HUGE in the ’90s and have recently been brought back to style with a vigor. The traditional version of these are just black and can be worn around your neck as a choker or as a bracelet or depending on how big yours is (also how big your waist is) they can be worn like a body chain. A lot of people have also taken to making these in different colors and layering them with all sorts of other chokers and necklaces. I have not brought myself to buy one yet because I know how to make them and I really would rather make my own just out of pride but to show you guys I included two pictures I found on the internet.

Lots o love, AJ
