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 and lots of brown lipstick and there were chokers for DAYS!
Remember those plastic woven looking ones? 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 then 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?
