I used to wear those stretchy braided chokers when I was in elementary school, so I definitely understand the appeal of this season’s biggest jewelry trend. Perhaps it’s because I follow all of the Kardashians/Jenners on Instagram, but it seems like every time I turn around, there’s a celebrity stepping out in a simple black band choker, not unlike the one Kourtney Kardashian is wearing in the above photo. Whether it’s the result of celebrity influence or the growing trend of bringing festival style into the mainstream, chokers are huge right now, and there are tons of different ones out there to fit your personal style.

Even though this kind of reminds me of a piece of jewelry you get our of a quarter machine at the grocery store, it was too cute not to include.

Kendall Jenner loves her a good thick joker, and who doesn’t love them some Kendall Jenner?

If this isn’t Coachella-ready, then I don’t know what is.
