The choker necklace is undeniably the hottest jewelry trend this year, and we can’t get enough of it. Last year, the runways were filled with a variety of modern-styled chokers, which have now taken to the streets and even the red carpet.
Here are three of the most popular ways to wear a choker necklace!
Your favorite A-listers have redefined the choker trend from being a casual accessory to serious red carpet bling. The two ladies below chose diamond-embellished chokers that sparkled on the red carpet. Rihanna styled her sizzling look with a Giuseppe Zanotti diamond choker, while Kim Kardashian opted for a stunning piece from Cartier.

Festival-inspired getups have taken to the streets, and celebrities are loving the look, too. Emma Roberts decorated her grungy outfit with a very ’90s style choker. Brit socialite Poppy Delevingne, on the other hand, opted for a bohemian queen look at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where she layered two chokers for maximum style.

3. Sleek and Chic
The updated rendition of the choker is sleek and undeniably chic. This style usually uses thin or thick bands of gold or silver and often looks great with structured and modern outfits, like Alesha Dixon’s white jumpsuit.
