20 Ways To Wear Chokers With Your Outfit

If you’ve been out in public at all in the last few months, odds are you’ve seen the classic 90’s style choker ROCKED by at least one (if not many) people. That’s right, the 90’s are coming back, baby. You may be thinking “there’s absolutely no way I could ever pull off a choker.” Well, to be blunt, you’re wrong. Chokers can be rocked by everybody, regardless of what style you identify with on a day-to-day basis! I am here to help with all your choker-wearing problems, so here are 20 ways to wear chokers in ways that are both casual and edgy, classic and modern!

1. With a sweater!

Higher neck sweaters can sometimes cause traditional necklaces to get lost, but with a choker that hangs out right above the neckline, the little accessory can add just the right amount of pizzaz!

Pairing a sweater with a choker is one of the easiest ways to wear a choker!

2. Layer It.

Gone are the days of blank space between the neck and necklace. That’s right…fill that space with a choker to contrast the different necklaces!

3. Dress up a casual outfit.

Take that comfy t-shirt and turn it in to a Grade-A fashion masterpiece all with the help of a little piece of velvet (or lace for a softer look.)

4. Replace that bulky scarf.

With spring fast approaching, heavy scarves are going to have to go. What better accessory to replace them with than something that sits equally as close to the neck, but is infinitely less bulky?!

5. Show off that plunging neckline!

Ok, time to be real; every once and awhile we all like to go out in a low cut shirt just to show off the boobs (rock ’em while ya can, ladies!), but traditional length necklaces can draw attention away from the desired area and right to the sparkles. Chokers instead show off those lovely friends of ours and make you look like you are here to take care of business (because you are).

6. With a swimsuit!

Step aside, body chains, we have a new swim-time accessory on the block. Cheers to summer ’17! This is definitely one of the easiest ways to wear chokers! One of the best ways to wear chokers is with a bathing suit!

7. With a caged shirt.

Shirts that have that incredible cage detailing can be hard to accessorize- long necklaces get lost and no necklace can look too casual for what the shirt is intended to look like. The happy medium? A choker (of course!)

8. Go off-the-shoulder.

Long necklaces look too heavy & normal ones always seem to hit the wrong spot and spend the whole day tucked behind your shirt. With a choker, you don’t have to worry about them hiding, and there’s enough space between the choker & shirt to not look too heavy! One of the best ways to wear chokers is with off the shoulder ruffle tops!

9. Too much happening with your outfit? Nonsense!

For outfits that have many parts (ex: the jacket/flannel/hat combo below) a traditional necklace does nothing but get lost. A choker sits just right, in an area that can be seen but not distracting. Perfect!

10. Keep it basic.

If all of these were too edgy for you, try rocking a small, thin choker with a basic jeans & t-shirt combo from those T-Swift fangirl days. Seriously, if you haven’t tried this, it is life changing. A great beginner’s step to chokers! One of the easiest ways to wear chokers is with a basic outfit!

11. Add something to that monochrome look.

Do you have a monochrome outfit that you just love, but it feels a little TOO monochrome? Choker! It doesn’t take away from the color, but rather adds a small taste, a hint of color just to make sure people know you own more than one color!

12. The Preppy Girl.

If you’re anything like me, you went through a good, long “preppy” fashion phase (and might still be going through it *me*), and spent a good chunk of change on those clothes. Don’t throw them away, just add pearls! Pearls of the choker form, that is. After all, pearls are a preppy girl’s best friend.

One of the cutest ways to wear chokers is with pearls!

13. Coachella Vibes.

Coachella is IN, which means the fashions that go with it are happening. But, those heavy silver bohemian necklaces aren’t always for everyone. Instead, try a simple choker to take that festival-inspired look to the next level!

14. With a wedding dress.

Wedding day choker? HECK YES. If this doesn’t prove that chokers can be worn with literally anything, I really don’t know what does. Seriously guys, a dainty gold or silver choker with that elegant white dress can make a world of difference in the look as a whole.

15. If Prom is more your speed.

We aren’t all getting married at the moment, and for those of us who are facing prom sooner than marriage, news flash: you can rock a choker with that too! Prom dresses these days are so heavily detailed up top that accessories are hard to find, but a choker sits at that just-right place between face and neckline to add that touch of bling!

16. Denim choker? Don’t mind if I do!

And no, we aren’t talking 2001 Britney Spears denim, but rather a casual strip of denim right at the neckline to make a stunning trend just a touch more casual!

17. Matchy matchy!

Typically you don’t want necklaces to match your outfit exactly, or it just gets lost. Chokers are different, though! The closer the match, the better the look (especially with silk as pictured below!) One of the best ways to wear chokers is with matching satin shirts!

18. With a bralette.

Bralettes are so dainty and quaint, normal necklaces are sometimes too overpowering to be paired with them. Chokers, however, provide just enough detail to balance the lace with the accessories! Choker necklaces look so good with bralette outfits!

19. Make it the star of the show.

Most of these options have highlighted chokers as a side show to the main event of the outfit- the clothes. However, chokers can be the main event themselves! When paired with a simple shirt or dress, a patterned thick strap choker can be the highlight of the whole outfit! A thick choker can pull together any outfit!

20. The more chokers, the better.

Layering necklaces in the past typically meant layering longer pieces with even longer pieces. However, chokers can work the same way! The more the merrier, after all.

One of the best ways to wear chokers is by layering them!
