Is your neckline getting the attention it deserves? With warrior-inspired jewelry catapulting down the Fall runways (The Hunter in me likes), vintage chokers making an elegant comeback and minimalist graphic neck bands turning heads everywhere, neckware is the schizz right now. From oversized collars at Elie Saab and Michael Kors to crystal embellished silver chains at YSL, its whats above the neckline that matters. Jason Wu, Celine and Dior all showed them at their Spring 2012 shows. As the eye tends to travel north from the collarbone it makes sense that neckpieces, all the rage in the 1990’s, are storming back onto the fashion scene. Designers from around the globe are ingeniously transforming these adornments for the twenty first century. These are not your standard velvet chokers from seasons past adorned with cameos or charms. People, these are tough-looking, more graphic.
Like these clean metal bands.
I personally love these minimalist statement necklaces and I wear them with abandon. Forgetting trends for a minute, there is something a little edgy meets sexy about them. All the buttoned-up shirts and collars being shown on the runways convey a naughty/nice suggestiveness and these chokers fit right in teetering right on the top the good girl/bad girl fence. Rag and Bone showcased these white chokers for Spring. Irresistible, flattering, and so groovy.
Isabel Marant made this one for Fall, matching it with her Navajo themed collection which is completely SOLD OUT. I happened to have gotten lucky with this awesome horn.
The statement neckpiece is the must-have addition to every fashionista’s jewelry box and will certainly inject full-on glamour to any outfit. With a plethora of celebrity fans, and an unforgettable name, the choker has made yet another comeback.
