Well, chokers are BACK!
Not necessarily velvet fabric strips, but tying things close to the neck is definitely a great way to accessorize as the temperature starts cooling down. I've actually started tying neck scarfs this way just because I'm so excited about this trend that I'm willing to endure the sweat in 106 degree weather.
But start collecting beautiful ribbons and fabric. You can also find some cool chokers at H&M right now if you prefer a less DIY approach.
