I have to be honest, when this trend came back with the OG of chokers (the threaded wire choker) I was NOT down with it. First of all, I was probably 13 or 14 when I rocked those exact same chokers from Claire’s (along with my sparkle roller eye shadow and those “one size fits all” shirts that went from doll size to your size in a stretch) so anything that takes me back to those dreadful awkward years is just….no. Second, I did not understand why we were going back to a time when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears wearing matching denim outfits was acceptable! I mean, there’s a reason we rarely refer back to the styles of the early 2000’s (unless it’s to get a good laugh). Fast forward to a couple months later…I’m planning an outfit around this charcoal jumpsuit and could not find an accessory that completed the look. I was pairing this with some over the knee black fringe boots, so studs just wouldn’t cut it. I wasn’t in the mood for hoops and something was missing. Then it hit me…. the wire choker would look perfect. I didn’t want to admit it and trust me, I fought it, but after looking online and finding one for $2.99, I caved. That is where it all began and here we are today….
It’s safe to say I have a slight obsession with chokers now. Whether you are dressing up or down, there is a choker out there to fit the occasion. The best part–most of these are super cheap! Or you can take a piece of black ribbon and tie it around your neck for a few cents. If only I saved some of those oldies from my teens…..
Starting from the top left and working your way down, you can see where each of these chokers from my collection is from. I am always looking for more places to buy more, so comment below with your favorite’s. I’d love to hear from you!
