Bauble Wish List: Chokers

Is anyone else loving this 90s resurgence that’s been going on lately? I’m a product of 1990, and love any excuse to talk about the greatest decade ever.  If we’re being honest, I still have times where I spend a lazy weekend watching my old favorite Nickelodeon shows. Let’s not talk about how Netflix recently removed Hey Arnold! from its selection. It’s a sore subject. As awesome as kids shows were in the 90s, let’s face it: some of the fashion was not. I think I had enough scrunchies to open up my own business. In addition to my statement hair accessories, I also had a not-so-subtle obsession with body glitter (along with every other girl in America). Bath and Body Works roll-on eye glitter was my bestie back in the day, and I’m convinced I wore it well. How do I know this? Because Beyonce once complimented my eye glitter at a mall meet and greet when she was in Destiny’s Child, and it’s still one of my favorite stories to tell (this is 100% a true story).

Although we left much of the fashion behind in the 90s, some trends are making a fashionable comeback. To me, there’s nothing more chic than a choker right now. I’m not talking those stretchy ones we all had multiple colors of back in the day. These modern day versions are ornate and eye-catching. They aren’t the finishing touch to an outfit, but the centerpiece to build a great outfit around. What are your thoughts on this current choker trend?

    I love them! Some of these statement chokers are gorgeous! And it’s amazing how much they spruce up a plain outfit. I love your Beyonce story – hilarious and awesome. I bet you were beyond excited.

    I completely agree, I’m so glad 90s chokers are back! (Although, confession: I have been wearing my old stretchy one recently and loving it!) Kudos on the Beyoncé love! x

    I have a short neck so I am kind of paranoid about chokers since they draw attention to my neck. That being said, I have seen some necklaces that I really love and am sooo willing to risk it for.

    These are all so gorgeous but don’t laugh I can’t wear chokers because like fitted turtlenecks I find myself getting slightly claustrophobic… weird I know! I will just have to live vicariously through you!

      Oh, I won’t laugh because I didn’t wear turtlenecks for years because it made me feel so trapped! Also, as a child, I would go into a rage when I had to wear jeans because of the claustrophobia. Thankfully, the no-jean policy ended or I’d be screwed!

    I love the look of chokers but find them uncomfortable so I never wear them. 😛 I’m really particular about scarves and turtlenecks too. That YSL choker is gorgeous!
