The choker had its peak in the 1990s, overran the 2004 catwalks, came back again in spring/summer 2012, popped up again last winter and will continue this summer season as well. 

The choker works best with low-cut neckline tops or anything that doesn’t cover your collar bones. Believe it or not, it works with almost anything. It is a versatile piece, as long as your neck’s length allows it. If nature didn’t grant you a long neck with enough space between the chin and the shoulders, then, choker is not the best accessory for you.

To give you an idea I prepared a few style advices for you:

 

Style advice:

  • Use it as a layering piece. Accessorize like a fashionista by wearing the “it” necklace over a turtleneck.
  • Wear it with another necklace. Layer your choker with a long, beaded necklace for a boho kinda look.
  • Pair it with a denim. Even a basic denim jacket and t-shirt are upgraded with this necklace.
  • Team it with a feminine dress with this ribbon as necklace tied around your neck
  • Give your look a little bit of an edgy touch, like a rock star with a leather chocker.

 

History:

  • During the French Revolution, women used to wear red ribbons around their necks to pay homage to those who met their death at the guillotine.
  • In the 1800s, Alexandra of Denmark was influential in expanding the trend due to her insecurities over a neck scar. She was inspired by adding choker to her outfit from traditional Indian dress in Bombay, where she often traveled as the reigning Empress of India.
  • If we go even further back, we’ll learn that Native Americans wore them to protect their necks and their spirits as well as to symbolize rank.

 

 

The Choker is perhaps the most non-exclusive piece of jewellery ever made, indeed you can easily make your own. But at the same time it is delicate. Choker an unusual accessory and adds a different mood to your look. It gives even to the simplest of looks the “Certain something”. They have various forms and material. Satin, velvet, leather, metal, wide or thin band. I’ve seen some younger fashionistas playing with the extendable tattoo-style chokers. Even I have already combined some with my outfits. Just have a look at some previous outfits from me!

I’m always fan of the grungy and punk leather one. For a woman who isn’t like shining and glittering, it is a refreshing alternative to diamonds and golden necklaces.
