OOTD: All Choked Up!

What’s that saying? If you wore the trend the first time around you can’t wear it the second? Well, seeing as I was a teen in the 90s with zero to no fashion sense surely I can give the choker another go?

When I heard that chokers were making a come back (let’s face it, the whole 90s are making a comeback and unfortunately there isn’t a Shannen Doherty appearance in sight!) I wasn’t too sure how I felt about it all. Let’s face it the 90s weren’t a fabulous time for fashion; we’re talking hyper-colour clothing, mood rings andΒ lots of brown lipstick and there were chokers for DAYS!

Remember those plastic woven looking ones?Β Or the velvet/cameo “old lady” ones with the Velcro on the back? They don’t conjure up images of sexiness now do they? If anything I was sure that I’d be giving this trend’s resurgence a wide berth but thenΒ as usual I got an email from Lovisa advertising their latest sale and I was hooked by this leather choker! I love that it’s so simple but it still makes a statement. This one came tied in a bow but I like it undone, I feel like it’s a little edgier and more “rock n’ roll” that way.

Are you hooked on the choker comeback? Are there any other pieces from the 90s that you’re dying to try the second time around?

  1. Oh I have a similar thing.. I never realised it was probably meant to be a choker! LOL I am going to have to try that now haha

  2. You are too cute! I love that entire outfit – your ring is so lovely and of course, the choker! I’ve got a couple that I adore but none that look like that, I’m going to have to invest in one (or five!)

    • If you feel old imagine how I feel hahaha πŸ˜‰ Truth be told I’m starting to embrace brown lippy tones again too – just another 90s trend that’s growing on me. Thanks Julia! πŸ™‚ xo

  3. I’m not hooked on the choker come back because I never let it go in the first place. lol The “plastic woven” looking ones are called tattoo chokers and I still wear one every day and have for the past several years. When it breaks I buy a new one. I love the way they look on me. I feel like they give me an 1800’s gothy look. I could just have terrible fashion sense. But I will never give up my choker! As soon as I lose weight and get rid of my double chin (ugh) I will probably wear different and thicker chokers. I just love them.

    I like yours to and I may have to go get me one.

    • I honestly didn’t know they were still around…gotta get my head outta Kmart πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ If you love the tattoo chokers then this one will be right up your alley. I know a lot of gals don’t like the “snugness” of them and I must admit it took me a while to get used to having something so close around my neck πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

  4. OMG this is everything! I used to be obsessed with those plastic “tattoo” chokers LOL, for the 5 minutes I was a goth. I absolutely adore this new take on the choker. So chic and hot! Love love love xo
