Despite being well into the millennium, we're still loving the 90s, especially when it comes to necklines. If you're not quite ready for the full-on retro grunge look but you still want to channel some of those nostalgic vibes, make way for choker dresses, your modern millennium solution.
Retro choker dresses
Necklines have certainly taken some retro inspiration this season, and the choker dress gives us a playful alternative to the halter neck and cold shoulder design. Choose a halter neck style dress with a high choker for a classic feel at a party; keep your jewellery minimal and carry a simple mini bag to perfect that understated style. Pussy-bow ties give an alternative take on choker dresses, keep things simple with a little black choker dress that you can take from the office to dinner with a change of shoes, or choose a plunging neckline for a contrast that will turn heads for a special occasion. Pick a pendent necklace to really emphasise the design's daring focal point.
Standout choker dresses
More is more when it comes to this season's opulent trend, and choker dresses are the perfect choice if you want to make a statement. Look for choker neck dresses with embellished chokers that are jewellery-inspired and perfect for an evening out, and choose embroidered and sequinned fabrics to ensure the rest of the outfit also shines. Mix your metals and look to silver and gold sandals and metallic handbags in contrasting shades - and don't forget some standout jewellery to finish the look. If you really want to go all out, make sure you have a faux fur jacket or a trench coat on hand for a luxe finishing touch.
