When you start scrolling through Instagram and spotting the same throwback trend over and over, it might be time to admit it's gone mainstream. Chokers have thus far been lurking on the edges, but, as is the case with all good '90s fads, their moment in the style spotlight was always inevitable. Good news is, it's finally arrived. Instagram darlings and indie brands alike have been pairing them with every look, from swimwear to formal attire — and we're sold.
To quell any naysayers, the chokers coming back in style aren't quite reminiscent of the stretchy tattoo types you'd find in a movie theater gumball machine.
