Dive into this comprehensive guide that uncovers the art of pairing chokers with different necklines, face shapes and neck lengths for a flattering look.
What looks good with a choker?
Chokers that are on the wider side pair well with strapless or single strap tops, v-neck or off-shoulder necklines, and ultra-sheer blouses. The exposed skin will prevent the look from appearing stuffy. On the other hand, slim chokers can be worn with higher necklines, such as boat neck or crew neck tops.
Do chokers look good on long neck?
A choker will work beautifully on a long, thin neck (the proverbial “swan neck”). A choker on a short neck can make that neck look stubby — and possibly wider than it is. A wide, short neck can’t rock a choker, especially a wide one.
Do chokers go with V necks?
If you’re going the short and sweet route when it comes to necklaces to wear with V-neck dresses, a good rule of thumb is to stick to choker length necklaces. A shorter necklace opens up space between the neckline of your dress and the accessory itself, giving you a long, lean look.
Should people with short necks wear chokers?
Chokers tend to look best on those who have a longer or more narrow neck. This doesnt mean those with short necks cant wear them, if style correctly, they can work on any neck length or size. For shorter necks, pick a simple choker to help elevate your neck.
Who should not wear choker?
If you have a round face, steer clear of chokers, since they will emphasize the roundness. If you have an oval-shaped face, you can wear necklaces of all shapes, lengths, and styles. If your face is on the long and thin side, a choker will make your face appear wider and softer.
What neckline is best for short neck?
A V-neckline top is the best neckline for a short neck. The downward-pointing neckline is slenderizing because it draws the eye lower and away from your short/wide neck and/or double chin, giving the illusion that the neck is longer. The deeper the V neck, the more effective the illusion.
