For fall, chokers are wider, blingy-er, and often have additional embellishments like drop downs or tassels. And, the choker is available in every price point. The pieces I’ve highlighted above range in price from a mere $20 to almost $1000. So, there is something for everyone.
Wondering how to add over-the-top chokers to your existing wardrobe?
This fall, it’s all about more – from Renaissance-inspired velvet dresses, to retro-one shouldered 1980’s tops, to statement furs in hues not found in nature. Fabulous chokers simply add another layer of glam.
But, if the costume-y vibe of the season is a little too much for you, pair a choker with something completely unexpected. I like a staid, gray flannel suit and simple white blouse combined with an ethereal lace choker for the office. Or, a stark black dress and a two tiered rhinestone choker for evening. And, a shiny slave style choker, like the gold Balmain piece above, works beautifully with an off-one-shoulder, slouchy sweater, jeans, and boots for the weekend.
One note: Some chokers can be heavy. If this is an issue for you, take a look at the INC Crochet Choker at Macy’s. It is particularly easy to wear, since it is so lightweight.
Or, rummage through your sewing supplies for some wide black velvet, lace, or grosgrain ribbon. You’ll get the choker look, without the neck ache that can sometimes accompany wearing a heavy necklace!
