“Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
That is one of my favourite style quotes and one of the reasons why I opt for quality pieces to build a wardrobe that will stand the test of time. The thing about time and fashion however, is that fashion is actually cyclical and 2016 trends are proof of that.
“fashions fade” is really synonymous for fashions come and go.
Still, as exemplified by some of the most stylish celebrities, the key to rocking the choker trend is to stay true to Yves Saint Laurent’s famous quote and in turn, to your own style.
Leave it to Badgalriri (A.K.A Rihanna) to put a style twist on the choker trend. I love how she styles her simple black choker by layering other chain necklaces for a clever mix of metal and leather. You can do the same by accessorizing various necklaces or buy an all-in-one choker necklace that already comes with an adjustable chain.
Longer is better
This year, the chocker trend is reaching new heights – literally! Celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian are opting for a soft leather tie choker. You can tie the front of this choker style to wear it as long or as short as you like.
Not just black
The 90s choker has been reinvented and it’s not just black anymore! Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne are wearing chokers in various materials and colours. Try this style for yourself with a stainless steel choker or a white leather one.
