Trend to Try: Metal Chokers


Up your bling game this spring with the trendiest trinket of 2014. Metal chokers of hammered silver, bronze, and gold plating have appeared on the runways of past fashion weeks, but have us especially hooked this year with modern minimalism being a chief trend of the season. The simple necklace style, straight out of what would have been Cleopatra's closet, appeared on the spring 2014 runways of Chanel, Balmain, Cushnie et Ochs, Zimmermann, and Saint Laurent in various forms, including thick collars and more delicate clavicle-covering chains. Our latest inspiration for the look came from Nicole Richie, who dazzled in a sophisticated yellow-gold choker at the Antonio Berardi dinner January 7th. She showed off the statement-making piece with pulled back hair and a low-cut black dress. Edgy and fashion forward with a timeless touch, here are 8 of our favorite styles of the season.
