ON TREND - Choker Style Tops

The Summer of 2016 will be known as The Great 90s Choker Comeback. Whether it's a wide black velvet affair, a thin satin ribbon style neck choker or a luxurious golden choker, they're everywhere. When I was growing up I was a huge choker fan and wore them pretty constantly, however now I'm adulting I find I have less time to fuss over accessories so I was pleased to see a new choker trend emerge, the choker style top. A top that incorporates a choker into it therefore saving you time, effort and unnecessary accessory spending.

I've rounded up some of the best choker style tops online at the moment, all budget friendly and in a range of sizes and colours. From casual to smart office style, these tops are incredibly easy to wear simply because they take little effort to appear chic and stylish.

There is a lot of choice out there and I imagine we'll see more of this choker style top and also high neck styles be an even bigger trend this AW. I'd love to see Simply Be offer a few of these in both casual and dressy styles, in a nice draping jersey style fabric.....

Feeling the need to take a moment to appreciate this beautiful dress I came across in my searches. It's not a top, BUT it is perfect for Autumn, you could dress it up or down, it has embroidery AND it has a choker style neck. If it had bell sleeves it would be absolutely perfect...

Though I resisted the 90s comeback initially, it's growing on me. It's the most bizarre thing to watch trends you remember being into as a growing teen come back into fashion years later and I am loving the choker action. What can I say, I was always a fan!
