Chokers look best on those who have long, slender necks. If you have a very short neck, a choker won’t look very flattering unless it’s very thin and simple. If you have a wide neck, a choker is still an okay option as long as you choose a slim one; otherwise, you run the risk of making your neck appear even wider.
