12 Days of Christmas: ON THE 11th DAY: GIVE HER A CHOKER

Originally, I wanted to title this piece, “Last Night, a Choker Saved My Life… or Maybe Just My Wallet.” Because, wait for it…

A) The post-disco tour de force, Indeep, brought the “Sistahs Doing It For Themselves” moves with their classic, “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life” in 1982

and B) I have saved an Oprah-like amount of money ever since The Choker returned to trendy fashion sensibilities. There is something about a piece of jewelry tightly wrapped around your neck that instantly transforms any given outfit more than any other accessory can.

I don’t need new blouses, blazers (OK, maybe some new palazzo pants), just a jewelry-tree full of chokers (trust me, it’s much more cost-effective than a shopping cart full of clothes) and each lends every ensemble a brand-new edge and brand-new personality.

Chokers go well with product placement.

 Taylor Swift, you’re not the only one who can rock a tassel choker (except hers cost $2,500):

The bow-choker is clearly a favorite of mine. They even made the panties on my head look like an actual feminine headband.

This tattoo choker is sooooo 90s I never thought I would be pairing it with a black blazer in 2016 going on ’17… but here we are. It’s such an easy way to un-square a squarish outfit.
