Move Over Long Necklaces – Chokers Are All The Trend!!!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, I’m sure you’re aware of the new accessory trend that’s taking over! CHOKERS!!!
I’ve seen them, not just in high street stores, but in Haute couture boutiques, as well as in high end designer stores. I’ve also read memes about them, which have completely cracked me up!
One of my favourite memes on chokers, from Claudio Oshry (@girlwithnojob)
However, if you are a new generation kid, you wouldn’t know, but chokers are actually the ultimate 90’s fashion throwback! They’ve been featured in cult classics such as the movie Clueless, and in the teenage sitcom, every 90’s teenager watched, 90210!

To say that chokers, are having a resurgence, in 2016, is somewhat of an understatement!
