The choker definitely makes for a look. You know, the look everyone's sporting these days, and with good reason: not only is it the style set's current favorite homage to the '90s, but it's also the perfect accessory to offset the equally en vogue off-shoulder trend. Still, we've got to admit that sometimes going out wearing a slim black velvet line across the neck can become predictable. What's a fashion girl to do? Below, 10 alternatives to the black choker that are just as scene-stealing.
1. A safety pin garland not only conveys street cred, but the humble sewing aid is also currently a symbol of solidarity following the results of the recent US election. Two birds with one stone!
