Trend Report: Chokers
If you thought the chocker trend died in the '90s, let me be the first to say chokers are back and aren't going away any time soon. We have the runway to thank for trickling this trend down to street wear. Chokers were all over the fall/winter 2016-2017 runways, from Balmain to Alexander Wang, Dior and more.
In the Bay Area, one local designer is making the choker trend all her own. Saalihah Mays is the founder/designer of Edge of Sheik (E.O.S), a one of a kind choker line. Mays not only creates chokers by hand, but she redefines them with new and unique fabrics. Her collection includes denim, feathers, velvet, suede and even personalized monogramed styles. The best part, the chokers start at only $8.
I personally love the choker trend! I love how they elongate your neck and draw flattering attention to your décolletage/cleavage. I also love how a choker can make a casual outfit interesting or make a simple dress sexy.
As a shopper, it can be annoying waiting for runway trends to become available in retail stores, initially only basic colors and textures are available. That's why having the option to purchase one of a kind chokers from E.O.S makes all the difference. If you want to try the choker trend or take it a step further and get a one of a kind personalized choker, try E.O.S. You can place an order through Instagram. Happy shopping!
