The choker: ideas (and reasons) to brandish the trendy necklace for 2016


Chokers are back. This slightly-ominous word that keeps popping up nowadays in fashion magazines to describe the necklace you wear snug against the neck, and which took off in the 90s in all its many glorious versions.

In 2016 they’re back in our lives, revamped and with airs of grunge grandeur. Like anklets—another nineties hit—chokers have made a total comeback this summer.

While true that we’ve seen them since the beginning of the year embellishing the necks of celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Rihanna, their revival wasn’t official until they became de rigueur adornments at music festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury. And if you need further proof to confirm their overwhelming success, here’s one for you: images with this hashtag on Instagram have already skyrocketed above 1.5 million.

Why pick chokers right now?

Because in the season that’s about to end, they’ve become the key accessory and, for the season that’s just about to start—Fall-Winter—, the trend is still going strong. And the simple reason is that no single piece can give that little trendy flair to any look quite so easily.


Created from leather, fabric, silver and even gold, the options to take the choker trend on board are so varied that it would be impossible not to find one that absolutely suits you, whatever style you may like, rocker, bohemian, minimal…


And if you’re feeling nostalgic, you have to know that even their most basic option is back: the classic plastic tattoo-effect choker, identical to the ones we wore as teenagers many years ago. However, like what happened in 95, in our (humble) opinion, this version is only recommended for the youngest of us. For 18 and above, selecting an option with a bit higher quality might be a better choice.
