Chokers came our way via the '90s grunge revival, along with halter crop tops, platform sneakers, flannel button-downs, denim overalls, and brown lipstick. But if you're kind of over wearing this trend with other '90s-inspired pieces, your favorite local online shops provide some alternative ideas—making way for the old-school accessory to inspire wraparound necklaces, thin scarves, and the super on-trend choker top. If you haven't joined the (neck)bandwagon yet, these styling tips might convince you to finally get your choker fix.
For a fresh take on the trend, pair a loose silk white cami with a white neckband in the same fabric, and breezy white culottes. Add a messy top bun and you're good to go.
If you're fussy about having to constantly rearrange your neck accessories, a choker top is your best bet (pick one without sleeves to keep you comfortable in this tropical heat!). Coordinating shorts exude easy, laid-back cool.
Strike a balance.
A velvet choker paired with a dainty, delicate necklace offers an interesting contrast, and looks great with both classic, feminine ensembles and edgier, more rugged outfits.
Dress it up.
A thin pastel scarf is the only accessory you need for a statement slip dress that's equal parts sexy and demure. Wear your hair down in barely-there waves and go for nude lips and highlighted cheeks.
Call it a tie.
The wraparound choker has been spotted on the likes of mega-babes Nadine Lustre and Vanessa Hudgens. Tie it all the way into a nifty bow, or knot once and leave the ends hanging for a more bohemian look.
