As we transition from Autumn/Winter 2013 to Spring/Summer 2014, statement jewellery remain key pieces in our wardrobe. With the fashion trends indulging in everything from gothic romance to punk, minimalism to lavish regality, there’s plenty of room for jewellery that speaks volumes, and one of the growing trends for this season is the rebirth of the choker necklace, now in new and exciting forms.
Minimal and modern
Let’s ease you in, and start off with the super chic and modern minimalistic choker. Very basic and simple (with a hint of futurism) yet it demands a certain amount of attention, this choker is easy to work with any outfit and less in your face so works perfectly for days at work to a night out.
Chokers with centre strips
From minimal to a much bolder look are the chokers with centre strips as seen from Chanel and Versace. A step up from the simplistic look, this is a choker with attitude and pizazz, giving more bling and more jewellery to play around with adding a gorgeous touch to your fall look, making it pop that much more. Pair it with a chunky knit and some cute dark skinny jeans to keep all the attention on your neck line.
Heavy chain chokers
A definite pop culture favourite is the heavy chain choker, with elements of punk and hip hop infused in the classic linked chain look. This is the kinda look you need to go hard or go home on, easy to make work with a simple tee or an elegant dress.
With the punk look as a major A/W season trend it’s no surprise that there’d be chokers to match, from collars to the classic choker the punk look is very bold out there and most definitely a statement piece. Spiked, studded, tight, loose chains, nails and razor blades, you name it you will find it on a punk choker. It exudes tough punk chick but of course like any other A/W trend you can make this your own, pair it with a beautiful dress or dress down and have everyone stare at the art piece around your neck – like I said, it’s all about making it your own and dressing it how you want.
