Learn how to wear chokers

Chokers, or chokers, can be of different materials and looks, and this will determine the different occasions they are used. See below tips, made in partnership with the fashion consultant Danyla Borobia, to insert them in your look and learn how to use different models.

Tribal

Also known as Tattoo choker, these chokers mimic a tribal tattoo and are made with an elastic material, which ensures that they fit snugly around the neck. Fashion consultant Danyla indicates that these chokers mixed with chains made of other materials can compose a current look. But they can also be used with delicate metallic pendants.

The consultant also gives tips for harmonizing the look: “This trend is indicated to compose more casual looks and without pretensions of luxury”. About the combinations, she says: “This accessory highlights the neck and face, the cool thing is to compose it with blouses and tops with lower necklines, so the necklace is in evidence. For the look not to be heavy, just wear delicate earrings, so there will be no conflict of information”.

Comic strip

The strip can be made of different materials, such as fabric, like a kind of shoelace, leather, satin or even suede. This model can also be in different colors and combined with other accessories, even if they are metallic.

To combine the accessory with others, Danyla gives the tip: “It is cool and modern to combine with other necklaces, even with the tribal style. As the strip has a slightly more sophisticated style (depending on the material), they can be a counterpoint in a formal or elegant composition, leaving the look more modern”.

metallic

Metallic chokers can integrate night looks, due to their glamour, and can also provide a sensual touch to the look. These pieces can be of different shades of metal, and just like the other chokers, they can also be mixed with other necklaces. When using this model, it is interesting to use an earring that does not provide too much information, so as not to conflict with the choker.

Danyla adds that these collars can enhance any look and that they have a more sophisticated look. About the composition of looks, she guides: “For a more modern look, the cool thing is to opt for compositions of monochromatic and neutral colors, leaving the glamor for the metallic of the choker. In makeup, it is recommended that it be light, nothing too heavy, moving away from the looks of the 90s”.
