This Supermodel DIYed This ’90s Jewelry Trend + It Rules
We said it once and we’ll say it again: choker necklaces have officially risen from their ’90s, Limited Too decorated graves. The slim fitting necklaces have been trendy to wear again for the last few seasons, not to mention recently spotted on everyone from Emma Watson to Hailee Steinfeld to Ariana Grande. Most recently, the comeback trend has been seen on none other than English supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and what’s even cooler is that she made it herself.
While guest starring on Rachel Zoe’s new Lifetime talk show Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, Rosie showed up rocking a black lace choker that she DIYed. The evidence is all in the Instagrams, folks. In one video posted by her hairstylist Jen Atkin, she’s seen showing how the necklace looks and works. Jen captioned that video, “Don’t miss @rosiehw and her DIY choker tonite on #FashionablyLateRZ!”
In another vid posted by her bud Derek Blasberg, Rosie is spotted rocking her custom creation in all its fashionable glory. Derek captioned that vid, “Ultimate posing lessons from @rosiehw tonight on ‘Fashionably Late’ with @rachelzoe at 1030pm EST on@LifetimeTV. FYI she made her own choker.”
If you want to copy Rosie’s project, it’s one of the easier style DIYs to replicate, according to our DIY editor Kelly Bryden, who gave us the low down on how to make it happen. “If I was going to make this, I would go and get some stretchy lace from the fabric store and recreate the clasp using a bra hook and eye. I’d attach the two together with E6000 glue.” Looks like we just might have one more project to add to our weekend DIY to-do list!
