Throwback Thursday: 90s Choker Necklaces

The 90s did have many questionable fashion moments. This post will not be about one of them. It’s time to remember the age of the choker necklace. Although this necklace came in many forms, it still remains a fashion essential today in any accessories closet. I used my power of intense internet research to think about every possible 90s film that featured the choker. Surprisingly it was quite difficult to locate images all in one place. From black velvet, lace, even spiked dog collars I’ve found some staple women in the 90s who continue to serve as daily inspiration in my own life.

Oh yeah, they weren’t just for the ladies. Jared Leto (aka. Jordan Catalano from MSCL) did the “string choker” proud.

Probably one of the funnies choker references of the 90s comes from Janeane Garofalo in Reality Bites.

To end my retrospective, I thought that the best use of the choker was Natalie Portman in The Professionals. It essentially was a character in itself.
