10 Elegant Chokers That Give A Modern Nod To Our Favorite '90s Accessory — PHOTOS
Perhaps one of fashion's biggest truths is that it truly does come in cycles. Shout out to the '90s trends that are still going strong — flannels, ripped denim, high-waisted cuts — But most importantly, the elegant choker. And while the '90s version weren't exactly elegant, but rather, more edgy and...plastic, we had to find a way to wear a modern update in our professional lives.
It's no new discovery that the '90s are back — just last week, I purged eBay to find just the right Tamagotchi to buy and entertain myself with. And at my local Goodwill, I found Mall Madness (please tell me you've played this board game before...) that I wanted to purchase so badly, but it was missing some key pieces. I mean, look around you: Crop tops, messy ponytails, slip dresses, and Doc Martens reign supreme. Platforms, too, are back. Hello, creepers?
But let's be real — who doesn't love the grunge look? There's nothing cooler than the just-rolled-out-of-bed look. This "effortless" ensemble? I spent three hours planning it last night. But no one has to know. Seriously, don't tell anyone. But there's no bigger '90s trend that fashion It girls love more than the choker. But this time, they've got a modern update.
Some elegant, some edgy, all of these chokers definitely pay homage to the beloved trend, while adding a modern spin to it that make them more ready-to-wear.
