5 New Ways to Wear the Choker Trend

For inspo, look no further than your favorite online shops.

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.

  1. Go all-white.

    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.

  2. Get coordinated.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
