Is It Throwback Thursday Already, or Are Chokers Really Making a Comeback?
We fondly remember 1999: The *NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys rivalry, celebrating our own spring break in front of the television watching MTV’s and — of course — our enormous choker collection, from stretchy fake tattoo necklaces to velvet ribbons, that we wore for every festive occasion.
And, much like our lava lamps and inflatable furniture, we were happy to leave those chokers in the past, but spotting Anna Kendrick in one at Vogue‘s Triple Threat event made us wonder if we need to start fishing through the depths of our jewelry boxes.
We saw a resurgence of chokers last spring, and Rihanna has been spotted in the look several times, but it wasn’t until the generally low-key Kendrick wore hers that we figured the trend had a real chance of making a comeback.
Of course, hers is a little different than the ones we last wore when we had a large Chupa Chup collection, in the sense that it’s highly polished and couldn’t be mistaken for anything sold at Icing. But we have to say, we’re still not sold, so we’ll put it to a vote.
