Metallic chokers are a classic—bold but stylish, rebellious but fashionable. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes—cylindrical, flat, broad, thin… so you’re spoilt for choice. They go very well with wide-neck camis, off-shoulder tops and sometimes even with high neck outfits. You can pair these chokers with your plain outfits to make them look a bit dressier, or with your dressy numbers to take the glam up a notch.
Sometimes, a single choker just isn’t enough to complete your look. This is where layered chokers come into play. They consist of one main choker followed by layers of chains to help transform that casual look into a slightly dressy one. Pair them with round or V-neck t-shirts or camis and a pair of denims for a complete look.
If you’re looking for an accessory that lends a soft, elegant and chic look, then lace chokers are the way to go. You can choose between minimalist or extremely elaborate styles, depending on the occasion you’re dressing for. Lace chokers look great with maxis and dresses (especially vintage). We highly recommend these for women with long necks.
Bow chokers are the must-have cutesy additions to your choker collection. You can pair them with just a plain asymmetrical dress for that delicate, minimalistic look. They also work really well with one-shoulder tops. While the lucky ladies with long necks can pull off pretty much anything, these chokers also compliment petite women with shorter necks.
Gone are the days when you needed to rely on a glamorous dress to stand out in a crowd. Today, it’s all about the right accessories. And when we speak of a strong accessory-game, how can we forget statement chokers. You can pair them with your best party clothes or your casual outfits to make them look dressy. These chokers will totally have you covered in the bling department so you can let your outfit focus on the cuts and frills.
Can’t seem to choose between a neck scarf and a choker? Well, now you don’t have to…. because bandana chokers give you the best of both! Pair this beauty with just a plain tee and denim bottoms for that funky but casual look that’ll definitely get you a few envious eyeballs.
Wrap chokers are the perfect add on to pretty much any outfit. They’re delicate yet versatile and can be worn in at least ten different ways…so it never gets boring. You can pair them with a round or V-neck shirt and some denims or a dressy outfit that could use some subtle accessorizing. They also work really well with a blazer and pantsuit if you’re going for that formal yet fashionable look.
These chokers are usually thinner on the sides and have more body in the middle. When paired with the right outfit, they can often create the illusion of a slightly longer neck. We recommend pairing them with plunge-neck tops to strike that perfect balance of chic yet sexy.
Casual, cutesy, formal, dressy…. there’s a choker out there for every look. With so many options to choose from, we reckon there’s definitely something that’s caught your eye by now!
