Another 90’s revival! The choker has made its comeback people, but you don’t need to stick to the good ol’ tattoo prototype we all had a love-hate relationship with. There are a tonne of options and whether you’re grunging out or dressing up, there’s sure to be one just waiting to be worn.
Asos Tattoo Choker £5.00
Aha, the dearly beloved tattoo choker. Or not. I remember thinking I was the bees knees wearing one of these back in the day, when I was about 10 or 11 and looking back now, I realise how ridiculous my style sense really was. So I won’t be wearing this specific one. Ever. Again.
Revolve Aurora Choker £17.11
This is a bit more sophisticated and can easily be paired with a simple white shirt, jeans and a pair of heels for a simplistic yet chic look. You could always aim for futuristic too – think leather, mesh, you get the picture.
Nasty Gal Rebel Charm Chain Choker £16.53
I have to admit, this one isn’t exactly my cup of tea. But hey, I cater to everyone and I say, whatever floats your boat. I do like that it’s chunky and bold, but not a huge fan of the charms. Maybe if it was something different. Maybe. Feel free to give me your opinion in the comments below.
Nasty Gal Emory Vegan Leather Choker - £11.90
I’m really loving Nasty Gal’s leather choker and I actually already own a bracelet that would match this perfectly. I think this piece could easily be dressed down with a check shirt and skinny jeans, or up with a black dress (possibly with some leather inserts)
Asos Rock ‘N’ Rose Zaria Turquoise Choker Necklace £14.50
One word. Beautiful. Everything about this is spot on; the turquoise oval, the intricate border, the velvet – it just works. This would be lovely with a skater dress or perhaps something with lace.
ASOS Triple Chain Choker Necklace £10.00
LOVE. This is definitely another favourite for me. It’s chunky and would definitely add an edge to a plain, white T and some torn boyfriend jeans.
ASOS Multi Row Choker 90’s Hamsa Charm Necklace £10.00
Eastern inspired items are always beautiful and I’ve noticed lately how popular it’s become. I often see people getting a Hamsa tattoo or wearing a necklace, so I think this will be a huge hit.
ASOS Shard Choker Necklace £15.00
I’m finding it difficult to put into words how amazing this is. I love multi-layered items and that each necklace has a different texture and of course the pendant – just perfect.
ASOS Beaded Feather Choker Necklace £6.00
I loved this one so much that I ordered it (I’ll be Instagraming once I have it, so keep your eyes peeled) I find turquoise and silver to be a match made in heaven and think this will be a great piece for workwear, going out and casual Fridays (casual Fridays extend to about 3 days a week for me)
ASOS Triple Cut Diamond Choker £8.00
How cool is this? I was close to getting this one too, but thought I’d reign it in and be a bit more responsible – which is how I ended up buying two shirts and a pair of jeans. Nice. Again, the colour is eye-catching and the shapes are really cool. Its a bit of a geo inspired piece, so you’ll kill two trends with one stone. Plus two more for backup.
ASOS Multi Row Eagle Choker Necklace £10.00
Last, but most certainly not least, this one’s pretty exciting and I wish I noticed it before I checked out on ASOS. I love the eagle and the ‘tooth’ and the rope detail delivers a finishing touch. Kind of makes me feel like it was inspired by American Indians – really lovely.
