Every since I was a little girl I have heard my mom say things like “Oh my gosh! I can’t believe these are back in style,” or “I used to wear this growing up! That is not a new trend girl, just fashion coming back around.” I personally never knew how that felt until I walked into Forever 21 a few months ago and saw several different chokers in their accessories section. It was a total No-Way-This-Is Happening-to-Me moment. Like am I really that old to have experienced a full fashion cycle? My mind traveled back to my first Apparel Design class, where my teacher explained how every 20-30 years certain trends come back in style, usually by their decade. The 90s are back and all the rage now, with chokers as the leading trend once again.
At first I was wondering how long this new obsession with chokers and the 90s would last. I mean it was one of the greatest decades after all (yes I am extremely biased), but could it really stand the test of time in our ever changing industry? Seems like I am not the only one thinking about longevity. Earlier this month Racked announced it was doing a choker watch.
So it is now or never to jump on this trend and luckily for you I am here to help you guys figure out how the choker can fit into your accessory rotation. A choker immediately adds an element of edge to an outfit. What I love the most about chokers is that it makes your neck the focal point, i.e bringing more attention to your face. I grew up with tattoo chokers and velvet ribbon to tie around my neck, but now a days chokers have become a little more intricate. I made this blog graphic specifically with you guys in mind for different chokers you can style in order to achieve different looks. They will all be linked below just in case you guys want to purchase, but for now three tips and tricks to pull of the choker trend!
