Choker trend may have gained a momentum last Fall but they won’t be going away any time soon, so I declare them an accessory of the season. Why? Because they’re so damn cool. Spring 2016 had plenty of chokers on the runway from metallic to fabric to plastic. Some designers even combined a scarf and choker, and Chanel went with massive statement choker necklaces.
Choker is pretty easy to pull off. If it’s a massive statement thing, it’s best to keep your outfit simple but not too plain. You can show it off by putting your hair up. It can also be worn with higher necklines.
If you’re a fabric-choker-kinda-girl, then coordinating your choker with your look will be as easy as 1, 2, 3, really. Black will go amazingly with black and white outfits. You can also add a choker to your jersey dress by choosing a similar fabric and stitching it together or wearing a strip-like scarf like Selena here.
If you’re however nostalgic of the 90’s, a small pendant and a thin fabric or ribbon choker is in order.

My favorite choker is a simple black thick fabric one that looks great in a coordinated as well as in contrasted outfits. Celebs loved the trend and wore it simple without many additional accessories or fluff.
