What’s Hot This Winter

The Choker Necklace

I don’t know about you but when I first hear the words choker necklace, a 90’s image of Jared Leto on My So-Called Life pops into my head. My, have choker necklaces come a long way since then! This season, it’s all about the choker necklace to add a chic and stylish finish to almost any outfit.

Which One to Buy?

These days, we have an array of choker necklaces to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you. However, if you’ve never worn a choker (other than in the 90’s), then I would recommend starting with a classic, simple gold piece like the one pictured above from Forever 21. At just $5, you can be on trend without doing damage to your wallet.

Once you’ve tried it out, if you decide you love it and want to make a more permanent investment, I would splurge on a real gold piece that will last you years and years to come. Especially when it comes to gold pieces, I would always go for the real piece to avoid any unsightly green spots on your skin and/or clothing.

How Do You Wear It?

Oh, let me count the ways. This is one of my favorite parts about a classic gold piece is you can style it with pretty much anything. If you’re a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, this necklace will take your look from just the girl next door to just stepped off the pages of InStyle.

Another reason this choker is great in the Winter time is because it looks stunning over a black turtleneck. These don’t have to be worn just against the skin, adding it on top of a sweater gives it an extra little something that screams, ya I know how to put an outfit together! 

So, if you’re ready to give this hot Winter trend a try, head to the mall and find your favorite piece. The one pictured above is from Forever 21 and you can find it here. I’d love to see how you style your new choker, so snap a photo of your look and tag me on Instagram @VanessaPhelpsTV. I’ll be picking my favorite look to feature on our Instagram page 🙂
