Hello, Gorgeous! Today on Blush & Camo I’m sharing what this summer’s hottest jewelry trend is featuring Something Silver Jewelry, PLUS I’m sharing two ways to style this trend.
You may be asking yourself, “What IS this years hottest jewelry trend?!” This trend is everywhere this season from runways, fashion bloggers, and It Girls like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner!
The jewelry trend I am talking about is the choker necklace trend! I’m going to be very honest with you ladies… I am OBSESSED with this trend! This jewelry trend makes me want to channel my inner Cher from Clueless (don’t we ALL have an inner Cher?!) and relive the 90s!
WHY THE CHOKER NECKLACE TREND IS AMAZING
There are a few reasons why the choker necklace trend is amazing and you totally want to put on a choker necklace (or two). Here are just a few!
The choker trend is such a great jewelry trend because wearing a choker necklace could cost you nothing! Yepp, that’s right. You could already have items in your house to create your own choker necklace right at home!
If you have extra ribbon or string laying around your house this is all your need to create your choker necklace. Wrap the ribbon around your neck until it is comfortable and then tie a bow in the back, or cut the excess ribbon/string if you are tied a knot!
Some other inexpensive versions include the stretchable choker necklace we ALL used to own in middle school or simply taking a necklace band and clasping the necklace on the tightest setting.
With choker necklaces ranging from FREE to as expensive as you like there is bound to be a necklace for you to try within your budget and personal style preference!
THIS TREND ELEVATES YOUR OUTFIT’S CHIC FACTOR
Since the choker necklace is more of a trend and not considered a classic necklace to wear, adding this type of necklace to your outfit instantly elevates your outfit’s chic factor!
The reason for this is because not everyone is wearing a choker necklace so this creates a very unique element to your look! This type of necklace also elongates your neck because you are highlighting specifically this area of your body!
THIS NECKLACE LOOKS AMAZING WITH ANY NECKLINE
We all know that there are some shirts you simply can’t wear with your favorite necklaces because the neckline on your shirt contrasts with the necklace (the length is awkward or maybe the baubles don’t hit your shirt at the right spot.)
One of the best aspects of a choker necklace is it’s ability to look amazing with ANY neckline! The reason is because the choker is short and doesn’t have any length associated with it so if you prefer scoop, V neck, sweeheart, ect.. you can wear your choker necklace and not worry if it clashes or not!
I told you the choker trend is AMAZING! Now, let’s dive into how to style this trend of this summer!
STYLE TIP #1: WEAR CHOKER NECKLACE ALONE
When styling the choker trend and you are planning on wearing the choker alone, with no other necklaces, the styling is pretty simple (#heckyes!).
All you have to do is pick a top or dress with a neckline that you love! I prefer a V neckline when showcasing necklaces because this is the neckline I think highlights this jewelry style the best!
Then, choose your choker necklace! It’s that simple! When styling necklaces for day it’s totally fine to wear ribbon, string!
If you are styling a choker necklace for night or for the workplace I recommend sticking with a metal such as silver or gold plated to up the chic factor of your look!
STYLE TIP #2: WEARING A CHOKER WITH OTHER NECKLACES
- Pick out all the necklaces that you want to pair with your choker necklace
- Choose a top/dress that looks best with your longest necklace. The reason you want to do this is because your longest necklace will determine what neckline you should wear!
- Start with your shortest necklace (like your choker) and then start layering your necklaces from shortest to longest!
- You are ready to take on the day like a total #GirlBoss
