I’m seeing chokers everywhere now. On the streets of New York, at Paris Fashion Week, on reality shows a plenty; you name it. Starting back centuries ago, the choker came about as a way for a woman to remember the passing of a loved one from the guillotine. They wore a short red ribbon tied into a bow as a symbol of their loss. In later centuries, the trend came back after European queens would travel to India and see the local women there wearing them. When they came back to Europe, they had chokers made in diamonds, pearls and gold.
Fast Forward to 2015, and the Kardashians have brought them back. Ever since they started wearing them again, this trend has picked up momentum like no other, and it’s a perfect trend! They’re cute, easy to wear with just about anything and can be very inexpensive or as expensive as you’d like.
