The Tightest Summer Accessory

A ’90s Throwback Makes All the It-Girls Swoon

BY Catherine Casey // 05.31.16

The ’90s are back! Chokers have arrived to spice up your summer wardrobe.

We love to throw on our chic sundresses and denim shorts during the hot summer days, but sometimes our trademark looks could use an update. Chokers have become the hottest accessory and are guaranteed to heat up your summer style.

Go for a classic and sport a lace choker by Vanessa Mooney, inspired by those iconic tattoo chokers of the ’90s. If you want to try a bohemian but glamorous vibe, layer a thin choker or two with lots of other long beads. Try Rebecca Minkoff’s tusk leather wrap necklace layered with Bauble Bar’s black-and-gold choker. To personalize your look, find a choker with a unique charm or letter to add that special touch.

Need something a little more luxurious? Metal chokers are the perfect solution. Christian Dior, Alexis Bittar, Eddie Brogo and Paula Mendoza are among the many who have created beautiful pieces. Wear Monica Sordo’s thick gold choker to your next formal affair, and you’ll be sure to turn heads. Or try a dainty collar necklace if you want something a little less bold.

Next time you catch yourself wearing outfits on repeat, bring a choker into the look to mix things up. From little lace pieces to metal masterpieces, the choker brings a new dynamic to your style.
