It is just another trend that is creeping back from the 90’s and I have grown to love it: The Choker. This necklace makes me think of Spice Girls and Sabrina the Teenage Witch and now it is being seen on the necks of off duty models, everyday street stylists and even Kim Kardashian’s two-year-old daughter North! The choker is well and truly making a comeback.
Casual or dressy, the choker is becoming a part of a variety of outfits and not just on the runway. After being spotted on the autumn ’15 catwalk, this style is here to stay. All you need to do is look at Kylie Jenner’s instagram to know that this accessory is this year’s newest revival.
However, if you are like me and started off a bit unsure of the choker, don’t be afraid to give it a try. Much like an item of clothing, it is about finding the right one for you and your style. And don’t forget, it doesn’t just come in the form of a necklace. You can now find them as part of playsuits, jumpsuits and adding a bit extra to a simple top and skirt combo.
Here are some of the best choker looks of the moment…
Picking a playsuit means easy to wear and requires no effort for day or night. A choker playsuit is chic and sophisticated whether it be with a plunge front or an instant floral summer piece. Pair with either a pair of sandals for the daytime beach look or with a hot pair of stilettos for the night.

Much like playsuits, jumpsuits are a ready-made outfit and take minimal effort. I think they are super classy and can still be worn in the summer season. Getting the right colour is key and all other accessories need to match perfectly. Nude is always a good go to when picking accessories as this shade goes with most other colours.

One of this season’s must haves is a high-neck piece. So team this up with the favourite figure hugging bodycon dress and show off your shape and stand out. Either that or there is the shift dress. They are versatile and can be dressed up or kept casual for almost any occasion.

In the Day
This statement trend is not just for the night. Wear your choker in the day, whether it is velvet or leather, or even has a pendant on it. They look great with a simple bomber jacket and jeans look, giving that extra detail and edge to your outfit. I like to take my black double woven leather bracelet from Pandora and turn that into a custom choker.
