Throwback Thursday: The Necklace of the 90s

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at USF chapter.

What necklace were you wearing in the 90s, collegiettes™?

Choker necklaces were the trend! If you’ve still got your black plastic necklace stashed in a drawer somewhere, bring it back out. This throwback favorite is trending yet again, making a comeback this fall!

Despite its simple design, there is a variety of choker styles. Check out Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen sporting embellished chokers back in the day.

Aide from the girly designs, there are definitely some edgy chokers like this spiked one. But today’s fashionistas are bringing this trend back with a modern edge. Some wear the old favorite as is, while others are putting new twists on the classic.

Take a cue from Rihanna and try a bold statement choker. Get the look with gold necklaces from Forever 21.

Layering chain and charm chokers makes for a relaxed, boho vibe. Try chokers from Charming Charlie, Asos, and Claire’s.

They can also be rocked the old-fashioned way. Take a chance and try out this returning trend. Will you be rocking chokers again this season, collegiettes™?
