When you start scrolling through Instagram and spotting the same throwback trend over and over, it might be time to admit it's gone mainstream. Call it the Gigi and Kendall effect, but, like most '90s pieces, chokers are, once again, having their moment in the spotlight. Instagram darlings and indie brands alike have been pairing them with every look, from swimwear to formal attire.
It's a trend that's been creeping back thanks to an overall '90s resurgence. The choker, of the velvet, metal, rhinestone or leather variety, has been seen on the necks of models-off-duty, everyday cool girls and, of course, North West as of late. See who's setting the trend and shop the necklaces.
