After the choker movement of 2016, these necklaces seem to have found a permanent home on millennial necks – I read that this is a ‘young’ trend.
This year, the emphasis has been more on ‘dainty’ chokers – subtle and elegant. Despite my absolute love of them as a child, it is only now that I have decided to wear one – post childhood.
They conjure up the memories of my primary school disco’s. One in particular; I wore a long sleeved Tammy Girl top – which had an animated character in the centre with lots of sparkle, I had my hair done in my favourite half up-do and I had on a diamond looking choker. The perfect accessory to finish my outfit.
I still feel that way now. As uncomfortable as they can be, I love putting them on. I guess I have waited so long to go back to them, because I questioned what kind of sophistication that they would have in my now twenty-something wardrobe. As a child, I wore them to be mature. As an adult, I’m wearing them to be fun.
Whilst the trend is still going, I will happily adorn them, as part of my accessories. I have never been someone interested in jewellery, so this is a big exception.
What is your view? Have you started wearing choker’s since they came into fashion?
