Chokers Are Back!

The ’90s necklace is here to stay

We all remember the ever-popular choker from the ’90s. The cool kids wore versions in velvet or plastic, fastened tightly around the neck. Along with all the other grunge-era trends - crop tops, pleated skirts, backpacks and boyfriend jeans - chokers have made a major return to fashion, and judging from the recent Spring 2015 shows, it looks like they’ll be around for a while. With style inspiration from celebrities, bloggers and high-fashion designers, scroll down to see how to wear the statement necklace, and shop our 15 favorite chokers now.
