The 90s are SO back – are you choker ready?

The 90s are coming back with a bang, and what better way to turn heads (and necks) than with chokers?

Chokers are versatile and can upgrade any plain outfit to an edgy one. We show you how to slay in this 90s accessory trend for any occasion.

1 Work

Chokers don’t have to be for night outs or lunch dates; you can actually get away with wearing a choker to work without looking tacky. The key is to always keep it simple and minimal by making sure your outfit is simple and dress code adhering.

The thick black choker (or neck scarf) is the perfect accessory for work.

A thinner and similarly monochromatic choker with a pair of camel coloured trousers and a white shirt also does the trick.

2 School, Movie Dates, or Shopping

The tattoo choker definitely has to be your uniform if it isn’t already. Pair it with a denim outfit or even with good ol’ tank top and shorts.

4 Dinner Date

The wrap choker (or a simple velvet ribbon) is the perfect finishing touch to a simpler look, transforming that LBD into a bold and sexy one. A black velvet ribbon is easily available and extremely versatile – tie it however you like! Sport this and your red lipstick for the perfect date night look.

If you’re not a fan off the ribbon, try something with sparkle. The diamond or “diamond” choker is the perfect bling accessory for a simple LBD.

5 Outdoor Events and Festivals

Festival #OOTDs are incomplete without fab accessories. Pair a low neckline top with a dangling design, or a high neckline top with a hardware choker.

Make sure to show off the choker by wearing your hair up.

You can even use fabrics like bandanas, ribbons (but we said that already), or canvas strings as chokers. Wrap a combo of those around your neck for a clever mix of fabrics and textures.
