Is This Item Replacing the Choker?

There’s no denying it—the ’90s are back, and they brought the choker back in style with them. Not only that, but the choker has essentially become a ubiquitous cool-girl symbol of the fashion world. It gives even the simplest outfit formulas an instant edge, so it makes getting dressed in the morning a snap. But what if we told you the choker had some major competition in the accessories department?

As Glamour recently pointed out, a slew of It girls have been spotted wearing an entirely different add-on—black neck bows. While we first spotted the trend on the S/S 16 runways from the likes of Gucci and Proenza Schouler, we’ve since spotted them on everyone from Cara Delevingne to Annie Clark. This bold accessory is only bound to grow in popularity, as it’s now available at tons of cool retailers and a variety of price points.
