The 5 Most Ladylike Ways to Wear a Choker Necklace
And look nothing like your teenage niece
No doubt, chokers have definitely made a comeback--and come a long way from the grungy bike-chain styles of the early ’90s. But even though the necklace trend is far more delicate this time around, it’s still a scary experience to try it for the first time, which is where we come in. Here are five ways to wear a choker like a grown-up.
Go for delicate styles
A thick gold collar may seem like your most on-trend option, but in reality, it’s pretty hard to pull off with your everyday wear. Instead, start small with dainty, refined pieces and layer them with your normal-length necklaces to keep things light and playful.
Try a looped lariat
You can do the same thing with thin pieces of suede. How to properly pull of this look: Simply loop it around a few times and knot it (or tie it in a bow) in the front. Pair with a white collared shirt to alleviate some of the drama.
Keep it minimal
Or tie the knot in the back and keep your décolletage area clean and minimal. It’s the perfect way to punch up a silk blouse without going overboard.
Loop a long skinny scarf
Oooooh, we can’t get enough of silk scarves. And a skinny one (looped once around the neck) channels a choker without all the commitment. It fits perfectly into your night-out repertoire, but we also recommend adding one to your workwear wardrobe when you’re itching to switch things up.
