You’d probably be surprised to learn that the choker has been around since the 1920s, but unsurprisingly it’s cycled through a lot of different styles since its initial iteration. You might remember those stretchy, plastic chokers that were all the rage in the Y2K era, closely followed by the velvet wraparound style (which Megan Fox was frequently spotted wearing).
Now, in 2021, we’re nowhere near finished with the choker-style, but it looks a little different again. From pearls to chains and pendants, we’re seeing that pretty much anything goes. No matter your personal style, there’s a design out there for every kind of jewellery wearer. You can opt for something striking if you’re wearing a little black dress, or something a little more subdued if your outfit is the main focus — there’s no shortage of designs that you can tailor to your look.
Below, our favourite chokers to shop right now, from the minimalistic and lowkey to the dramatic and show-stopping.
