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.
Here are 15 chokers to help you bring your inner ’90s girls back to life:
Brighten up a basic black band choker with colored gemstone.
These come straight from Zara’s new festival-ready Springfest line, so you know they’re good.
Chokers can be good for layering, too.
I dare you not to pet your neck all day long while wearing a velvet choker. Seriously, I dare you.
This has a very Chanel-esque feel to it, no?
Chokers don’t always have to be simple and subtle.
I kind of wish I knew about this choker during cooler months—it would have gone great with a chunky knit sweater.
These are simple yet statement-making, and also give you the opportunity to get a very interesting tan line on your neck.
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.
I’ve never really know Madewell to make anything that even remotely approaches “edge” territory, so I’m really into this choker.
Maybe this could be the new, less-cheesy version of friendship bracelets!
Play up that vampy, vintage side of your with a burgundy velvet choker. You can tell people it’s just an old ribbon you found lying around.
And, of course, every girl needs a good everyday piece.
