The iconic come-back of the beloved choker is still in full action- even in 2018. Chokers have been gracing necks since the world’s earliest civilizations, to being worn across cultures, to being popular among 90’s goth girls and now widely worn today. While black chokers have had their spotlight, it’s time to finally put them away and take it up a notch with crystal chokers. Wandering in and out of style, crystal chokers have been seen on dozens of celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kim Kardashian – to name a few. Ribbon and elastic chokers were great and all, don’t get me wrong, but some may say sparkles and glitter are even better. Make room in your jewelry box for a new collection of crystal chokers in endless styles and designs! Our professional stylists at Ana Luisa have picked 4 of their favorite crystal choker styles for you to try out.

1. Layers, Layers, Layers

We love layering at Ana Luisa whether it’s with rings, bracelets, earrings, or necklaces. For an added statement to your outfit, you can layer a few thin crystal chokers for an elegant, laid-back look. We recommend layering thin chokers during the day-time and adding thick chokers for the evening when you’re ready to go out and unwind. Pairing long layered crystal chokers with low-cut tops and dresses will give you an instant sexy yet elegant appeal. To make your ensemble more appealing, feel free to add a pop of color with your crystal chokers. Try to throw in a gemstone necklace or some charms in there for some contrast; you will look like a layering pro!

2. Dainty Crystal Choker

A widely desired look for women, dainty crystal chokers are subtle yet add a noticeable sparkle. Dainty and delicate is the way to go for any setting you’re in….and we mean it. Going to work? Dainty crystal choker. Hanging out? Dainty crystal choker. Grabbing some dinner? You get the point. A dainty crystal pendant choker will be stunning in a basic flowy tee and high-waist jeans while a dainty choker punctuated with crystals would look flawless with a body suit and wrap skirt.

3. Bandanna Rocker Look

Bandannas or chokers…why should you have to choose between the two? You can have the best of both worlds with these undeniably stylish pieces. Combine the little bandanna neck scarf with a thick crystal necklace for a mesmerizing rocker-chic look. Who says you can’t mix a little glamour with grunge? Combining these two trends will definitely give you an Instagram worthy post. You can play around and have fun with this look by using different patterns and colors. Easily complete the look with a sleek chiffon long-sleeve dress, or flared jeans with patterned booties, and a fur coat.

4. Crystal Chain Link

Create an edgy look by pairing a crystal chain link choker with your outfit. A slightly more modern take on the classic choker, the crystal link choker is hot among festival attire right now. No matter what you wear, you know you can always top off your look with a chain choker. There is no denying your outfit will instantly pop with a thick crystal chain. When your boring outfit is calling for something a little extra, a chain choker will always do the trick. Try pairing it with a mesh long-sleeved top or a high neck sleeveless sweater. You don’t always have to pair a choker with a low-cut top! Pairing with high neck tops will add an effortlessly cool-chic look to your outfit.

There you have it! Ana Luisa’s top choker picks in a nutshell. Mixing and matching has never been this fun. Leave a comment telling us your favorite choker style and share with your friends!
