“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.
The quintessential ’90s accessory has also been seen wrapped around necks belonging to various Kardashians and Jenners, Gigi Hadid, Rihanna, Miranda Kerr, Jesinta Campbell — the list is endless.
These A-listers aren’t solely responsible for bringing the choker back; they’ve been popping up on Instagram, in stores and at music festivals for a while now.
But photos from the first weekend of Coachella proved resistance is futile at this point.
