A choker is a close-fitting necklace worn around the neck. Chockers are made from velvet, plastic, beads or leather. This is a trend that got started by ballerinas and the upper class in the late 19th century who commonly wore certain types of chokers. However, at that same time, a plain, thin, red or black ribbon chocker had ties to prostitution, as seen in Manet’s famous paiting Olympia (1861), A plain black woven choker or ribbon could signify secret lesbianism in the Depression era. The chokers came back in the late 90’s in stretchy plastic material in neutral colors and rainbow colors. It became very popular among pop starts such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. And now is a hot trend once again in 2016-2017 with more textures and details incorporated. This hot accessory can be worn with a tshirt and jeans or with a formal evening dress.
