Do you guys remember those chokers from the 90s that had, like a peace sign, dolphin or smiley face hanging from a black cord?! Those were the BEST!
However, these are not them.
The combination of 90s influence on current fashion and the lean towards minimalism that has been happening for a few seasons now, brings us the return of the choker– this time, sleek, sophisticated, and edgy.  Unlike the “statement necklaces” that have been everywhere for the past couple years (still going strong…these still work with more classic, romantic or feminine looks!), the chokers I’ve been obsessed with as of late are a cleaner, more modern look.  I look for ones that are impactful in their simplicity, edgy and of course, gold.  Gold chokers really elevate an outfit; they bring a basic sweater and jeans up a few fashionable notches; they add a sleek twist to a lace top (see above); add a sense of “now” to a white button down, and in the case of the pearl and gold choker from Zara, featured above, bring a vintage or retro inspired look into 2015.  Like me, I’m sure you have plenty of pendant necklaces, bohemian inspired chains, and floral or crystal statement necklaces– it’s time to add a choker to the mix! Trust, it’s a game changer.
