STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Two is Better Than One

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Two is Better Than One

Chokers have been the hottest craze this year and continue to come with full force into upcoming season. They add the perfect amount of edge and visual appeal to even the simplest of outfits. As the year has gone on, chokers have evolved from being a single leather strand to layers of lace, velvet, suede and chains. Just by adding one more necklace makes all the difference, creating an innovative take on the choker trend.

This trend, of course, makes me flashback to the ’90s. The fashion cycle has come around once again in a very successful way, however, using new fabrics and textures for a new take on an almost 25-year-old trend. This Fashionista is wearing a lace choker paired with an embellished chain to glam up her back-to-school look. Lace trim (or any fabric at that) can be used for an easy DIY choker and costs as little as a few dollars! A quick addition of a choker and chain can change the entire look of leggings, a T-shirt and a denim jacket.

So how does one choose what necklace to layer with a choker? Check of this Fashionista’s look for one of many ways. The rather casual, everyday look allows the elements of the accessories to pop. Sneakers maintain the effortless look, making the outfit ideal for a comfortable, yet stylish ensemble for the upcoming semester.
