Autumn Trend: The Choker

This is one trend you can easy get on board with and it’s not going to break the bank. And if you get it wrong, pass it on to a girlfriend and find another one that may suit you better. The classic is the simple black velvet band – you can get these super thin or super wide. Perfect for evening wear but looks just as great daytime with a denim shirt.  

There are lots of styles to chose from and most high street stores from Topshop, H&M, River Island to Accessorize are selling them from as little as £6.  Here are a few hints and tips to help you out:

  • Do consider the neckline of your top in relation to where you wear the choker – you need to give it some space – try a v-neck or scoop neck tee 
  • Instant glam for a night out – opt for simple black or metallic like silver or gold
  • If you do opt for black velvet – you hitting two trends this season!
  • Try a choker that’s been accessorised with either extended beads, a second necklace or if they are super thin wear more than one at once
  • Don’t wear them too tight, not only for comfort but there is nothing glam about a red neckline!
  • Adopt the more dainty look for daytime super chic fun.

The one I wore in the picture above is from Topshop, a velvet black choker for £6


I’ve also opted for a thin brown cord choker with a gold heart – I’ve yet to wear it as I only got it this Sunday in London.  It’s going to be a great to wear daytime with a tee and jeans.
