The 1990s were notorious for berry lips, Dr. Martens and the Spice Girls movement. Yet the most influential trend was the infamous choker necklace. This accessory was essential to a ’90s wardrobe and could be purchased in any store. Each had a unique touch that reflected the wearer’s personality. Whether you sported delicate wire for a playful look or velour in a more formal setting, this was a universal trend that worked with every outfit. Now, it is making its comeback and it is safe to say that it’s here to stay this spring. The Fashionista I spotted took a look back on time to perfect her look.
This Fashionista uses dark neutrals in her outfit to make her choker more distinguished. The choker gives a grunge-chic feel to her ensemble. Its black cord is clean and simple, making the blue and white colors of the stone pop. She uses the now timeless accessory as a way to play with ear cuffs. Rather than wear an ordinary stud, she literally raises the bar with a sterling silver cuff mid-ear. Incorporating plaid patterns in her outfit creatively sticks to the choker’s ’90s theme.
How To: Feel like experimenting with this trend, but are feeling skeptical? Chords and pearls are taking their dominance over the choker fad. Pair a pearled choker with a plain T-shirt and boyfriend jeans. Add a floppy hat for some flare and a pair of booties. Maybe even bring back those Dr. Martens!
