How To Style A Choker Necklace ? 20 Outfit Ideas

As a choker-wearing girl myself, I know what it is like to be stood in front of the mirror trying on multiple chokers before settling for one which works with your chosen outfit. I can be going through at least 3 several times before saying to myself ‘Yep, that’s the one.

Although it should be known to all women that choosing an ideal choker is not hard at all and 9 times out of 10 it just comes down to personal preference, or just settle for either a little black number or go for the neutral gold.

Chokers can sometimes be mistaken for being just an alternative or gothic accessory however this is completely false. There is a huge array of styles in which chokers can be worn in from goth to boho. Chokers are available in so many different shapes, fabrics, metals, styles, patterns, and colors that any fashion style can be accompanied by them. Why not have a go at making your own chokers to suit your own personal look? I have made several of my own chokers. It makes them more ‘you’.

How to Style Choker Necklaces

  • Short Neck: If you have a short neck then wear low hanging ornaments, looping necklaces or plain chains with pendants.
  • Long neck: If you have a long neck then you can wear chokers. Circular neck wires are good options for you.
  • Color Choice. Regardless of how you wear it, be picky with your Choker’s color. Great options are black, gold and silver. And neutral shades like cream, grey, or statement pieces can help tone down a more colorful outfit.
  • Patterns and Prints. Go for a print that says something about your style. Chokers have come a long way since it was just a paisley-printed cotton classic. Cool geometric designs can give a graphic twist to your simplest outfits.
  • Fabric. If you just want to experiment with your style, an affordable velvet black choker or wired choker would do. And if you’re willing to spend, get a good quality luxury chokers that you can use for years, probably something that can never go out of style.
  • Choose a suitable length. Make sure your choker length is that you’ll look good with it around your neck.
