How to effortlessly pull off the choker trend (plus an infographic on which necklines match & don't match)


Last week, someone asked me to a post on how to wear chokers. I love it when you guys make suggestions! I also love to get reader emails ;)


"A piece of jewelry or ornamental fabric, worn as a necklace, tight to the throat."

Contrary to popular belief, it is quite simple wear chokers- they are more versatile than they might seem. There are three things to put in mind though:

- Chokers that are small in width ( about one centimetre wide) are more versatile and simplier to style than larger ones (which could make you look like you are actually choking). Larger chokers actually work quite well for a more dramatic look.

-Avoid wearing chokers with square necklines. I've found that chokers go with most necklines, turtlenecks and collars included, but seem to have a negative contrast with square necklines.

-Turtlenecks and chokers go only if the turtleneck is not so high and the choker is really tiny.

So I created a infographic for you, my beloved readers, to illustrate chokers and necklines. Yes, it was no easy feat seeing as I'm not a graphic designer.

So on to what to wear chokers with!

Pair it with a pair of gladiators, patterned shorts, and fringe top

Stay tuned for the DIY of these shorts coming up on Thursday. Hint: It was made from a skirt.

-Wear it with a collar shirt (unbuttoned) and jeans

I like the simplicity of this outfit. The choker adds an unexpected twist.

-With a high round neck maxidress

This neckline works best with chokers in my opinion.

-Pair it with a dress with a decolletage neckline


-Wear a statement choker with a shirt dress

-With simple t-shirt + jeans combo.

Throw a blazer on and you've got the look!

-With an assymmetrical neckline.

I never thought of pairing a choker with an assymetrical neckline but this works don't you think?

You can wear a choker necklace with basically anything! The key to wearing a choker is to pay attention to the neckline. Does it flow seemlessly? Yes? Then it works!
