STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: History Repeating Is Not Always Bad

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: History Repeating Is Not Always Bad

In the fashion world, I’ve noticed a pattern surrounding “new” trends. Everything that was once in style makes a come back. I mean, look at late ’90s-early 2000s. A lot of looks from then are totally in right now! But it is a more of a hybrid version. These trends are back and better than ever since. Fashion has evolved throughout the years. I mean denim on denim? Super trendy and I’m not talking about Justin Timberlake and Brittney Spears circa 2001. I’m talking more Kendall Jenner 2016. One trend from then that has really taken over the fashion world are (my personal favorite) chokers! I remember growing up always wanting a new tattoo choker. I would beg my mom to take me to a market in Mexico City to buy me new ones. I needed them in every color! I was rocking the uniform to school, so I had to spice it up somehow, and I would be able to wear a different color every day.

We, my friends, have come a long way from the tattoo choker and have evolved into many different styles of chokers, including suede ones.The amazing thing about the new choker trend is that it is so easy to make yourself! But for those that just want the immediate necklace, one can find them in pretty much any store or online! Accessories are what defines an outfit and makes it stand out and that is exactly what this Fashionista did. Although it is a delicate accessory, it makes the whole outfit look effortlessly cool. Dark colored chokers have the super power of giving dark elegance to any outfit. The deep cut of her purple paisley dress works perfectly together with her wrap choker. It makes it so the main attraction of the look is the choker without taking away from the beautiful pattern of her dress. Tying off her look with wrapped brown sandals completes the look because the sandals complements the black choker. Although her accessory game is minimal, it goes to show how less really is more. This simple necklace is what gives life to her outfit.
