Chokers- The Modern Day Guide

'Transcendence requires suffocation.'- Benson Bruno
As a generation fixated upon the boldest new trends, we rely on accessories to add an element of class and elegance to our visual personality. The accessory 'choker' is deemed a staple for those reluctant to get their head out of the 90's dream or a pre-teen girl sampling with her experimentational rights. However, there's something about a choker which for me personally adds an air of sensual womanly energy and if styled right, hits all the right present day style trends. The choker does however have a deep history far and wide with women from the French Revolution adorning the piece to a centuries old International presence in Chinese, Egyptian, Indian and Native American cultures. 

In today's society, a choker is not an 'everyday' wardrobe item- the difference I get in a double look from others when I wear a choker to work or a simple gold chain necklace is monumental and also at some points, laughable. Why should I be given a look of distaste when I accessorize for comfort? Ofcourse, in certain work places there are dress codes and by all means please stick to it. But I work in the creative sector and if anyone comes into with work with, say blue hair- I'd welcome whatever makes them feel comfortable. And the same should go vice versa. Here, I've shown you just a few chokers from my collection and listed at the bottom are a few handy websites to live out that choker dream of yours.
