Chokers have been in for years now. This trend started out with the plastic tattoo chokers (you remember those from the 90’s) and moved on to thin strings with a charm and then to velvet chokers. This year the choker trend went up a level and changed the color variation from simple black to brighter and more vibrant colors. Strings got longer and more interesting with metal tips. Materials turned more feminine such as to lace and even embroidery. I’ve never really been a accessories kind of gal but the choker trend is something I’ve been getting more into than the rest. I especially love the lace trend chokers that can elevate your look in so many ways. One simple choker can change up your look in so many ways and give so many different variations to your look. The greatest thing about chokers is that they are everywhere and most of all they are really affordable. For more handy people with a creative mind, making their own chokers can be an easy task. Choker material is easy to find all over craft and fabric stores, and the possibilities are endless. As long as you can place a hook behind something, it can already act as a choker. You can even take a shoelace from these snake print heels that I’m wearing and tie them around your neck and have one of the coolest neck accessories. Just be creative and think outside the box and everything can become an accessory. That’s what I love about the human mind – everything is possible!
