Oooooooookay. Maybe it’s just me, but is its Majesty Fashion trying to insinuate two things?
1) If we’re not teenagers (or just grow-up-refusers) trends are like so not for us anymore. Doh. Seriously. Like. Hello. Chokers are soooo cool.
Yeah. If you’re 15.
OR… 2) Urging us to develop a penchant for all BDSM things. Not any less weird.
When just the other day I was reading some article about new ways to wear your chokers I couldn’t help but wonder if there is an age limit to rocking these. Don’t get me wrong, I love them. I wore them like a lunatic back in the day, in the 90s (yes, this is yet another 90s trend making a comeback), but that only comes to show you what I actually meant. Right?
Black thin or thick fabric chokers with dangling pendants around your neck look great when you’re young and restless. But then… who says that? Is there really an age limit, and if so, what is it? Late 20s? 30s? 40s?
Why don’t we just come clean and admit it? You cannot wear the same things in your 30s as you did in your teen years, and not because we look worse, which – let me tell you WE. DO. NOT. – but because it’s ridiculous. It’s like wearing your prom dress to your 40th birthday. I’m sure we’d fit in it, but that’s not the point.
Thank God fashion and age have more to do with how you wear things rather than what you wear per se. Look at crop tops, at mini dresses, at nose rings, at Kylie Jenner inspired lip-makeup – it all probably started by trendy girls in their early 20s, yet us oldies-but-goldies do them as well, without looking demented.
Style. And different trend approach. So here we are then, back to CHOKERS as a 2015 trend. What does it do for us? Can every girl and woman wear one? How do we wear one? Which style do we pick?
Yes, yes, yes. And Yes. Why? Cause I honestly refuse to be reduced to an age limit, so leave it to me and other women who love fashion a little too much to come up with tons of ways for nailing a trend.
The GRUNGE inspired CHOKER.
It’s the thin or thick black choker with or without a pendant, tied tightly around your neck, usually alongside other thin necklaces piled over there, and wore mostly by young girls in bustier tops, tank tops, cropped tees and so on.
It looks gorgeous. Girly, grungy, fun, sexy.
Can anybody do it, anywhere? I pretty much think so. A thin leather or lace choker, piled with other thin necklaces looks fantastic with a white shirt and jeans for a casual chic office look.
Or it can look pretty sexy on a night out with a sophisticated blouse and jeans or a dress.
The thing about chokers, especially black (or other color) thin ones is that they instantly draw attention to the face, so it’s a style gimmick we can play with a lot.
The JEWELRY & STATEMENT CHOKER
Let’s sigh everybody. … This style is absolutely fantastic. It’s so bold, and rich, and sophisticated, and fashion forward, and elegant and everything you actually want. In a choker. Every woman at fashion week, from editors, to stylists, to models, to the whole lot was seen choking on… a fab choker.
The designs they come in are incredible, and they look gorgeous with any outfit, worn on the skin, OR over some chunky sweater.
The thick ones are a major style statement, whereas the thin ones are so sexy and feminine. Designers have been obsessing about chokers for a while now, so I think it’s safe to say they will have their major comeback this year. Maybe.
Also… who the hell needs a belt for pants anyway? That’s so last Tuesday. It’s around your neck it should be. Just saying.
I mean if chokers are jewelry we look as if we’re in shackles, playing dom and sub role plays. If they’re leather it’s the same bloody scenario. Dirty mind alert? Perhaps, but what other option does Fashion leave me? Certainly can’t go back to high-school, can I? Who the hell would want to anyway?
Okay, this is getting ridiculous. Bye.
