Remember back in the ’90s when it was rad to wear choker necklaces? We don’t know about you guys, but we had a ton of those plastic tattoo chokers in every color of the rainbow. Then there were those velvet ribbons with the little gem or pendant on ’em (think Natalie Portman in The Professionals or Brenda Walsh from 90210). This neck-hugging style can be ultra sleek… and it’s back. So here are 20 modern ways to bring chokers back into your lives.

1. V Shape Choker Necklace ($16): We’re huge fans of dainty jewelry. This simple style looks understated and elegant on its own, but would also work great as a layering piece.

2. Dannijo Prima Necklace ($347): If you’re looking for something a bit more edgy, opt for this rhinestone and teardrop shaped piece.

3. Rose Gold Plated Choker ($58): This lovely rose gold stunner almost looks like a blank canvas, but it’ll instantly up your jewelry game. It’s bold and beautiful.

4. Embossed Piece Metal Choker ($15): A studded choker may sound like you’ve just joined a gang — but in this case, it’s a pretty girl gang filled with super posh people.

5. Binary Circle Choker ($62): Silver geometric shapes make up this unique necklace. Wear it with your LBD or a plain white tee. Just know that either way, you’ll be getting tons of compliments.

6. Gold Braid Necklace ($110): We love when two of our favorite things come together to form an even better thing. In this case, it’s braids and gold chokers. This funky combo will dress up any plain white tee or add a golden touch to your dressy digs.
