Chokers. They’ve been big this year and there’s no sign of the style slowing down. Thick velvet, delicate leather or jewelled and attention-grabbing, whatever style you choose, follow the lead of these stylish women and you’ll be on trend.

Here are 4 tips on how to wear them, followed by our picks to buy right now.

1. Keep it simple

For office hours, pair a single-tone choker with a crisp white shirt, an all-black outfit or a structured blazer. For office-appropriate style, we love dark shades in velvet or satin.

2. Mix it up

It’s all about layering for casual, weekend wear. Pair different styles – stones, textures, details – for a relaxed vibe, or go simple and elegant with a tiered, thin chain.

3. Easy embellishments

Inject some sparkle with a bejeweled choker for a look that can be dressed up or down. Wear a bold, statement piece with a neutral-toned outfit, or go for all-out glamour in a LBD. Embellished styles give any outfit a lift – and don’t be afraid to layer with a simple gold or silver chain for added value.

4. Saturday night 

Turn up the glamour with a chrome, gold or diamond detailed choker. Wear with simple tones, luxe fabrics and loose, long locks for added elegance.
