I am not very big on accessories, mainly because I am always rushing late and often remember that I forgot to put them on when I’m already in the car driving. It’s too bad, though, because accessories can be a lot of fun. I recently moved my jewelry box next to my makeup bag so I don’t forget to grab an accessory before I head out the door. And so far it’s been working! Having said that, this fall brought chokers back to life! At first I wasn’t sure if I would try the trend, especially the simple black velour chokers which I thought would only highlight my 40-something year old neck. I still won’t go for these velour chokers, but it doesn’t mean I can’t go for differently designed chokers. The options are endless! I picked three of my favorite choker inspired necklaces that I think are a lot of fun.

I actually got this necklace in New York quite a few years back, and I am impressed that this necklace is very relevant this season! This actually reminds me that before I ever go shopping for new trends, I should first take a look in my own closet. This necklace is chunky and delicate at the same time and works well with black on black, black on white, and everything in between.
The necklace looks very lacy, but it doesn’t look beautiful on plain fabrics only. I love how it adds richness to this lace top! For a work look, I wear this necklace over a black dress or under a shirt. It’s modern and fun.
A v-chain necklace design is just so sexy and feminine. And a necklace that matches my skin tone is definitely aging-neck friendly! Second, while it looks very pretty on fabric, it looks even more beautiful on bare skin! There are many v-chain necklace designs available, I especially love simple chain necklaces to complete work looks here and here).
Okay, who doesn’t love old fashioned lace choker necklaces?! I imagine that women wore something like this hundreds of years ago, so pretty and feminine. I like wearing this necklace with a black top and jeans, but a classic black dress with an open neck works perfectly too,
Hope you enjoyed my quick rundown through these trendy accessories I am loving this fall. Do you wear accessories? Any favorites? Would love to hear from you!
