Choker necklaces aren’t a novelty; on the contrary, we’ve been admiring them for some time now. The short, velvet, usually wider necklace, worn individually or in combination with other, longer necklaces, is a detail that complements the decolletage beautifully, and emphasises the length of the neck. Men find it sexy, and women who have a hard time finding our way around the accessories jungle, or are simply on the lookout for something new, find it intriguing.
If you like velvet jackets or dresses, a choker necklace is perfect for you. Same goes for all those who like to wear a lower neckline – combining your choker with a longer necklace is a great look. The most practical models are the ones you simply tie behind your neck, eliminating the need for a clasp entirely; it’s important to tie the choker close to your neck, simply because that is how they look the most flattering. It’s true you have to get used to chokers, seeing as they’re not the most practical, and you feel a bit constricted, especially when they’re wider or sit extra high. No need to settle for black, they also look amazing in deep colours, such as army green, dark blue or mustard. Opt for shiny ribbons in silver or gold, which beautifully complement the look of a stylish woman.
Right now, the thinner, but layered versions that tie in the front, usually a bit to one side, with a narrow bow, are trendy. They look amazing with a white blouse or a blazer, so try that to achieve a sophisticated daytime look. You can style chokers with a small bag, and if you’re daring, you can wear them with an unbuttoned shirt or blouse that reveals the contours of a lace bra. All you have to do is keep in mind that this style requires you to be a bit playful and foxy.
In the summer, style them with lace tops that seem almost like lingerie. Add a pair of high-waisted pants, and you’ll be perfect, even for an important, glamourous evening.
