We have been known to gush over fashion blogger-turned-designer, Rumi Neely, quite a bit. She’s got impeccable street style (as evidenced through her epically popular blog, Fashion Toast), her Are You Am I collection of slinky silks, leather minis, and perfect tees had us at hello, and we’re not even going to profess how rad her recent high-end jewelry collaboration with Meira T Jewelry is again. Now, our obsession turns to a '90s staple she’s made both luxe and affordable, and she’s modeling it all over her Instagram feed. Just look for the black velvet bow choker, playfully described online as “half evil, half cute.” It’s one '90s trend we’ve already happily welcomed back into our wardrobe because it can totally catapult any look (seriously, it looks great with a gown or a white T-shirt). So we are thrilled that AYAI is offering a version trimmed in rose gold for a price that you can’t beat. When we asked Rumi what inspired her to accessorize her line with, not one, but, six different interpretations of them, she told us, “I love chokers thick and thin. It takes every piece in the Are You Am I collection to a whole new level.” Keep scrolling to see the choker we’ve deemed high on our must-have list up close!
