Remember when chokers were all the rage? Especially those velvet ribbon ones with cameo pendants or big fake jewels dangling from them? Well, they’re back. Sans the velvet. (Phew.)
According to today’s Who What Wear email, along with a slew of other trend sources, the 2011 choker is here and in full effect. And it’s not the flimsy kind we remember. This season’s chokers are very structured and bold, often made from heavy metals or chains. I mentioned my excitement over Michael Kors’ wide gold ones on the fall runway, and have been seeing similar styles pop up in stores. About a month ago, I stumbled upon a ton of them for sale at Housing Works (one of my favorite thrift stores). I bought three, and am excited to incorporate them into some fall looks.
Style hint: Try teaming a thick choker with an assortment of long thin pendant necklaces for an edgy combo. Or opt for a choker over that turtleneck we talked about.
