HOW TO PICK & STYLE A CHOKER
March 26, 2018
Whether you’re a 90s kid or a millenial – literally everyone is obsessed with chokers this year! During all our hauls- in and out of Delhi, the one style we’re coming across again and again – are chokers. Embellished, Metallic, Fabric-based or Lacy- they’re everywhere and they’re gorgeous! <3
Since we get SO many questions every now and then about this piece of jewellery, we thought we’d pen down our own take on which choker you should be flaunting- this summer!
THE WIDTH AND LENGTH OF YOUR NECK
Chokers look best on folks with longer, more slender necks. For folks with shorter necks, we’d recommend simple fabric based chokers. Long-necked ladies are the luckiest when it comes to chokers- you can wear literally the most gem-studded embellished piece and pull it off perfectly. Look at this picture:
THE SHAPE OF YOUR FACE
The heart-shaped face is the best for dressing up a choker. The fuller upper face gets accentuated and the narrow chin gets balanced out. So the more tapered your face towards the chin, the longer and more bold the chokers you can wear!
YOUR NECKLINE WHEN YOU WEAR A CHOKER
Something that’s going to make all the difference to your look is the way you style your choker. If you’re wearing a chunky piece that sticks to your neck, make sure you style it with a scooped neck or a V-Neck, such as Kanchan has done with the JanpathOnline Silver & Blue Choker. Do NOT wear anything high-necked / turtle neck with a choker – it’s going to take away from the look entirely!
INDIAN OR NOT?
Also, we keep hearing how folks have a grunge-reference to chokers only. We, on ur part are convinced that chokers look just AS good with Indian wear as they do with Jeans & Tees! Look at the way Aarti has styled our Blue Choker with Metal Tassels. It looks fab!
