The Top Choker Trends – Without a Black Ribbon in Sight

The Nineties trend is still going strong, with chokers a firm favourite. Here’s how to wear the top three choker trends.



Popularised during the Victorian era, the choker has gone on to be a well-worn women’s accessory throughout the ages. In the 1920s, beaded chokers were the go-to, while in the 1940s, a dog-collar style was adopted. After making a comeback in the 1980s, chokers reached their style pinnacle in the Nineties, with celebrity fans including Naomi Campbell, Posh Spice and Gwen Stefani. And now they’re back!

Here’s a selection of our favourite choker trends and the pieces you just have to have now.

STYLE 1: Heavy rope-style chokers

For a glamorous or dramatic look, choose a heavier, rope-style choker as a true statement piece.

Wear with: Dark colours and plunging necklines – like a black collared shirt open just that one button extra.
