Unless you are into S&M (hey no judgement) chokers are something you have not worn in a while. But they are back, and back in a refined sexy way. No longer the cheap, borderline something you stole out of your younger sisters toy box thing, chokers come in polished metals with a minimalistic look of fine lines and little to no ornamentation. This means that you can either wear ’em alone or layered with other longer pieces.
So this is a breakdown of how I would wear it.
For a casual look:
I would most likely layer a simple metal choker (similar to the one by MichaelKors) over 2 or 3 varying layers of delicate chain necklaces. Pair this with a button down shirt, a pair of distressed girlfriend (or boyfriend) jeans & pumps.
For a more formal look:
I would just do the choker as the star of the show. If it has little embellishment on it (like this one from Kenneth Jay Lane) consider it a perk. Wear with your fave LBD & your good to go.
