CHOKER COL­LARS

As the name sug­gests, choker col­lars are neck­pieces that clasp the neck tightly, fit­ting like a choker neck­lace but with a dif­fer­ent make and style. From belt-style minia­ture buck­les to snaps and loops, these neck clasps are found in a myr­iad va­ri­eties. For the punk touch, gilded me­tal­lic ac­cents in­clud­ing spikes and bullet pel­let-shaped adorn­ments can also be found in such choker col­lars.

STYLE IT RIGHT

While a diamond or jewel-en­crusted choker neck­lace can pretty up any ensem­ble, these tough neck­ties can be tricky to pull off. We love how singer-ac­tor Vanessa Hud­gens (left) seam­lessly weaves in her black, gold-ac­cent en­crusted choker col­lar with her dress. If you want to perk up a min­i­mal­is­tic look with some edge, these styles of neck­laces are a good op­tion. Since the neck-clasp makes a bold state­ment, keep the rest of the look clean oth­er­wise you’d end up look­ing over the top. Take cue from Hud­gens and keep your hairdo sleek, with a glossy cof­fee hue for your lips.
