The Chic New Way To Wear Chokers

Chokers have come a long way since your great-grandma’s cameo. Like Eddie Borgo’s silver collar, the newest versions are less florid and Victorian, and more like the perfect, understated jewelry for the uber-minimalist in you.


The new statement necklace retains its chunky proportions, but loses all the Playskool-looking baubles, for a look that’s decidedly more grown-folk chic. And the combination of powder blue and leopard print is timeless — just ask It Girls from Edie to Alexa.


We love the touch of shine the Nasty Gal’s choker adds to this masculine-feminine look. Patchwork overalls and a sleek peplum top are both comfier and chicer than your standard jeans-and-white-tee weekend ensemble — sort of an amazing feat when you think about it.


Floral prints might have a rep for being dowdy — one that they easily shed when paired with a sleek, tailored jacket, sexy heels, and a chunky, black-stone charm that adds just the right amount of Craft-y appeal. Consider us spellbound.
