“I feel like maybe chokers are the new flower crowns?” the Shake It Off singer’s message read. That’s a big call; flower crowns have been at peak saturation for a few years now.
Yet, with those 10 words, the heavens opened, the earth tilted on its axis, and a trend was born. Well, reborn — anyone who was old enough to remember the ’90s knows this is not a new thing by any means.
Regardless, you can kiss goodbye to your long-drop necklaces, because the choker has regained its stranglehold on fashion.
Just ask Swifty, who managed to wear four different kinds over the first Coachella weekend.
