Celebs Have Been Rocking Classic Silver Chokers, And You Can Too

The stars were glamorous as always at the Oscars this year, and you may have noticed a common accessory bringing luxury and brilliance to the red carpet outfits. Halle Bailey, Angela Bassett, and Lady Gaga wore stunning jewelry this year, and their choice of necklace accentuated their flare. So if you noticed the choker trend finding its way back onto the necks of the stars, you weren't the only one. 

The good news is you don't have to be rich and famous to benefit from the beauty the perfect choker brings to your ensemble. You can rock these very same silver necklace looks on your own this spring and summer season. From chunky pieces that make any outfit pop to dainty chokers with a charm on top, these looks are too cute not to experiment with this year. The choker style options are endless, and the jewelry will elevate your outfit no matter the occasion.

Baublebar Choker Necklace

If you are looking for the perfect accessory for a wedding or a formal evening out, consider the Baublebar-inspired choker look. This elegant piece is a beautiful, subtle addition to any evening wear outfit you're planning. It's stunning enough to grab attention, but remains a classy piece that is as subtle as it is show-stopping. 

Link choker

Link chokers are a versatile addition to any accessory combination you've designed. Link chains can add flare to a black leather jacket, or they can work well as a layering piece with a longer, more decorative chain. This Dorsey-inspired link chain comes in many lengths, and it can take your everyday outfit to the next level.

Dainty choker with jewel

If chunky neck wear isn't your style, consider opting for a dainty chain with a charm in the middle. Wear this chain shorter so that it falls to the lower middle section of your neck, or lengthen the chain so that it meets the bottom of your neck. The options are endless for this choker choice, and many are made with charms or pearls at the center.

Lady Gaga chunky choker

Lady Gaga showed us how to dress up and dress casual all in one night. Her formal dress was next-level stunning with her archival piece from Tiffany and Co. (via Town and Country). This piece falls closer to the collarbone, but is still considered choker-length. Thick, shimmery chokers like the one Lady Gaga chose for her red carpet walk may seem out of reach for many of us. However, there are plenty of places where you can pay homage to Gaga's impeccable style to line the neck of your favorite formal piece. 

The lariat choker

The lariat choker is a striking and sexy neck wear option. Styles of lariat chokers are as diverse as those who choose to wear them. From the snake look to the knot at the top with the longer strands hanging as low as you'd like, there are so many ways to use the lariat to add personality to your outfit. Styles can be formal for a night out or casual for an outdoor concert. The lariat choker is a favorite of many.

Layer your chokers

With so many options to choose from when it comes to silver chokers, consider combining a few for the layered look. If you have an outfit with an open neck, jazz up your ensemble with a brilliant combination of chokers. The dainty charm choker looks stunning with a solid silver chain choker and a longer link necklace.
