Chokers: The Dos and Dont's of the It Girl Trend
Every month, Marie Claire senior fashion editor and E! News fashion correspondent shares her dos and don’ts of the latest trends.
This season’s must-have accessory is the choker. It’s simple, versatile and transforms every look into the perfect flirty ensemble that only spring calls for. This look has been hanging on the necks of all the It girls and off-duty models for months now but it works on just about anyone!
From delicate ribbons to chunky statement pieces, this trend can match just about any mood and occasion, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it—but keep in mind this styling no-no before you proceed…

Do get the look for less (a lot less!) by tying a ribbon around your neck. Try whatever color or texture fits your mood and keep the knots straightforward and simple.
Don’t turn the choker into a costume piece by wearing it loosely or pairing it with other large necklaces or pendants. Less is always more!

Do layer a choker with your other jewelry! Dress the look up with some diamonds if you’re wearing it with eveningwear or mix and match with your daily jewelry for a more casual, street style look.
