So yesterday I decided to go out of my comfortzone and got myself a choker collar. I wanted to get two but the other one I wanted had soldout. Hear me out, I came across a local beauty store on Instagram that had really awesome jewellery for very affordable prices. I bought mine for only $1.50. If you know me very well you know I love to save money yet buying quality items. The choker is very light weight so, I went for it!!
With this look I decided to wear my hair up into a high bun, a plain black vest top and a dark maroon lip. I wanted my look to be simple and bold yet giving all the attention to the choker. Because the choker makes such a stament with its chain design, I made sure everything else was plain.
With this one I braided my twists back into two cornrows and wore an orange knit top. I also had a deep orange lip to make sure my colours and textures didn’t overshadow my choker. I decided not to wear earrings for the same reason. Let that choker flourish😉
Last but not least, I made a flat twist at the crown of my head from the hairline back and tied into a ponytail. Again I chose a dark maroon lip, ‘plain’ black polo neck knit sweater and a black ring.
Here are little secrets when it comes to chokers:
- Keep your hair off your face and neck. You really want that choker to show and not get your hair tangled up around it.
- Be simple. Choose pieces that won’t overpower the choker. If you have a statement choker like mine, plain colours and delicate textures are the way to go. All looks were accompanied by a pair of black denim pants.
- Tone down that makeup! Go for a more natural look with a bold lip. Drop the eyeshadows if you can. If not, go for nude shades instead.
And that’s it guys, a mini look book based on my new choker collar. Will be showing more chokers on my Instagram as they are back in stock. For store details also check my Instagram, I will be tagging the store. Which one was your favourite??
