Have you been wanting to try the choker necklace trend, but don't know where to begin? I've got you covered! Today, I'll be discussing four different types of chokers that need to be your go-to accessories this summer! If you're tired of wearing a basic, tattoo choker necklace, this post is for you!
This month's issue of Essence Magazine discusses the choker trends that you must try this summer. Much of this post is based off of the article titled "All Choked Up," by Fashion Editor, Joiee Thorpe.
Bold chokers are perfect for drawing attention to a solid top or dress. This type of choker tends to be a stand out piece, and is meant to draw all of the attention to your accessory. This means, small stud earrings are a must! Bold chokers also look great when paired with textured tops. Try a choker, such as this hammered choker necklace with an off the shoulder top. It is available at Forever21.com for only $12.90.
Dainty chokers are perfect for summer sundresses. They add a delicate touch to an outfit, without being too overpowering. The Matchstick Pendant Wrap Choker will look perfect paired with an earth tone colored dress. I would take the choker a step further, and pair it with my cream mesh and lace bodycon dress, which I featured on The Mod Little Melanin in March and add a pair of summer booties to complete the look. This choker is available at Forever21.com.
I think by now, we have discovered that Bohemian fashion is my favorite. While I tend to be a style chameleon, and haven't featured too many boho looks on The Mod Little Melanin this summer (that's changing soon) boho style ('70s style) is my go-to look on days when I'm unsure of what to wear. The Ornate Layered Choker necklace features stacked necklaces, combined into one necklace. However, for a boho look, I prefer the Etched Charm Wrap Choker. Both are available on Forever21.com.
This sequins choker is perfect if you are a self-proclaimed fashion risk taker. I'd pair it with a cropped graphic tee or tank, a blush pink bomber jacket, cut-off shorts or distressed, boyfriend jeans and my blush pink faux fur sliders. Find it on Forever21.com for $4.90. Simply search for the Iridescent Sequin Choker.
