Yep, the whole Nineties choker thing is back. And yet somehow the designers made the look super chic, not oddly retro. We first saw the look in a recent issue of Vogue featuring IT girls Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hailee Steinfeld, and Rihanna wearing their choker necklaces everywhere from the red carpet to the airport. While chokers have been fully embraced by trendy 20-somethings everywhere, that doesn’t mean they aren’t wearable past 30. The key is to go for simple and understated, with a little bit of bling here and there. Here are my favorite renditions of the trend.

Modern, sleek, and ready for layering; a simple gold choker worn with a longer gold necklace takes your t-shirt and jeans outfit from plain to luxe. This Jennifer Zeuner collar necklace comes attached to a longer hanging chain to make the look easy and effortless. The looped Jennifer Fisher necklace is cool enough to wear alone but simple enough to layer if you want.
