We all know that clothing and accessories are a never-ending cycle of fads and fashion. This trend proves that fashion is timeless and anything can be brought back into style with the right presentation. A choker is an accessory that first had its rise to popularity in the early 2000s when the “goth” look was trendy. Celebrities such as Britney Spears and Paris Hilton loved rocking chokers with their looks and now in 2015, chokers are back and better than ever!
Stores such as Urban Outfitters and Free People have brought these items back into stores and they are selling like hot cakes. Chokers don’t just come in one simple style. They come in a variety of options and can be worn with any look you choose. This Fashionista loves to dress on the edgier side and incorporated her black choker into her everyday look.
She started her look by pairing a band tank top with a pair of light-washed, distressed denim jeans. For shoes, she chose a pair of black motorcycle booties. She also carries an oversized, simple black bag, which she uses for a more stylish option of a backpack to bring her items to campus. For accessories, she wore a simple silver bracelet and a pair of studs to complete the outfit. The choker completes the look by adding a grunge effect to this Fashionista’s look.
Chokers can be worn with anything from a classier look to a bohemian look, depending on the type and style of the accessory and the outfit. Be on the lookout for some more old trends to come back into style because I have the feeling that this won’t be the last of it.
How To: Go look for a simple choker and try to pair it with your style and then expand your horizons and try some options outside of your comfort zone!
