90’s Throwback Choker Trend Retrieved: 1/17/2016 From: http://www.teenvogue.com/gallery/choker-necklaces#1

“What we’re about to do is go back, back…back in time!” Think back to the 90’s on this #ThrowbackThursday and reminisce with me for a second. You have on high-waist denim jeans, your gold doorknocker earrings, and that in-expensive tattoo choker from your local corner store, you know the one that sells the matching Chinese slippers?! Yes girl, you are fly! Now flash forward to right now, realize you have no idea where that cute piece of plastic went, and smile because you are about to go buy ANOTHER ONE! (Did you read that in your DJ Khaled voice? Good! You should have.)

We know “new” trends are never really new. So with that being said, chokers are back ladies! We here at EGL are going to highlight a few styles of the updated trend so that you know which one best suits your style.

For the Grunge Girl:

This choker is most similar to the tattoo choker, composed of a piece of velvet fabric and a small jewel detail. This choker is perfect for the modern day hippie. If your closet is full of crotchet crop tops, thin dusters, and flared leg pants then this choker will give you just the right amount of spice for your minimalist, earthy vibe. You can find this piece at Forever 21 or Target. It is the most common and the cheapest amongst the chokers out right now costing about $5.00.

To the Gaudy Goddess:

This choker is for all my ladies that are not afraid to pile on the bling! This piece has multiple strands of jeweled necklaces that create a layering effect. Wear this piece with a high neck lined top, jeans, and cute booties to dress up your look. FYI: These are normally the more expensive choker option. To shop for the one above visit DylanandLex.com for more eye catching options.

Two for the Chic Chicas:

If you are looking for a choker piece that will add a touch of trendy to your outfit of the night, then this ASOS option does just that. It is not too heavy, nor does it have too many chains. With its intricate detail, this piece shows a more sophisticated version of the trend. A choker like this would be in the $100 price range.

There are also choker styles that translate great into your work wardrobe. If you are employed with a company that has a more casual dress code then a choker that resembles the one above would be perfect for your collared shirts. With an open front, this choker will give the illusion of collar tips. With this style it is best to go with something that has jewel embellishments incorporated into the design to still give your shirt a POP. You can shop this look at Bauble Bar for a little over $50.00.

For the Dainty Diva:

Dainty chains were a huge hit last year. It gave us fashionistas a more subdued option when our statement necklaces were making too much of a statement. Now to elevate and elongate the cute trend a lot of dainty chain styles are incorporating a choker layer onto the already multi-layered piece. Shop this trend at a Forever21 near you starting at $7.00.

 

We are sure your closet has a mesh of great styles to pair these different choker styles. Have fun styling them your way! Tell us how you rock your choker in the comments below!
