Collar necklaces are back, a provocation of fashion. Do you love them or hate them?
The collar necklace, also called choker (which in English means: "that suffocates you"), has been back among fashion trends for a while." Thanks to the great revival of the 90s that we see for spring 2016, together with the most precious and provocative collar necklaces, there are also the famous tattoo chokers, necklaces tight at the neck, often made of plastic, which create inlays similar to the designs of the lace, with a tattoo effect on the necks of young and very young people, but not only a "legacy of the 90s" that some love very much, while others would like to forget.
To take a quick walk in the fashion memories of the 90s, look in the small gallery below. You will find three famous necklaces from the world of TV and cinema of the 90s: the legendary Brenda (Shannen Doherty) of Beverly Hills 90210, the Piper of Witches and a very young Natalie Portman in the film Léon.

3 styles for the collar necklace
To make things easier, here are the three main ways and three looks that you can combine with a collar necklace. In fact, a choker is not always fetish or provocative, and before you hate this trend (if you think you hate it), get an idea of the various uses and looks you can get with this jewel.
1. Chic look
If you fear the overly provocative reach of the collar necklace, take an example from the look below. A perfect chic, almost bon ton look, also ideal for going to work, with that extra touch given by a golden choker. It doesn't have to be gold, and cost a fortune, a gold bath is enough.
