We have always loved the way Princess Diana wore her jewels, especially the statement choker necklaces. They were the epitome of her elegant styling. And how can we forget Queen Mary of Teck’s multi-layered pearl chokers. The necklace style was very popular in 80s and 90s.
Being sit around the neck as a collar, it is called ‘choker’ and is perfect to go with virtually any outfit and neckline imaginable. And it was the spring of 2012 when we saw the similar choker style back in trend.
Designers like Ralph Lauren, Givenchy, Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier showcased chokers on their fall 2012 runways. It was the gold and silver statement pieces that were the focal point of the season’s styling. Also, many of our favorite A-list celebrities ditched their dainty, layered personal jewels for rather bold looks.
As the style will be elaborated in 2013 with the red carpet trails on the way, if you want to spend in one piece of jewelry, it will certainly be choker necklaces.
For those New Year parties, prom nights and any glittery evening, it will be the conversation starter that will take your outfit to the next level. Whether opting for a plain gold piece or an elaborated shimmering one, it will definitely finish off just about every look. Wear it over a simple turtle neck, with a cocktail dress, under an oxford shirt or with a plunging deep V dress – a choker will definitely be a complement to it.
