For a long time, I just don’t think the chocker top will ever be my thing.
As a girl who loves classic and feminine clothing, the chocker top just seems too cool and baddie to me.
Plus, I always thought I am too old to wear a choker top.
Well, apparently I was wrong.
If we pay attention to the fabric and designs, you will be pleasantly surprised by how many different styles you can pull off!
Despite the stylish cool-girl look, you can also look soft, polished, and even professional in a choker top!
If you are doubtful about that, make sure you read the tips below! So ladies, here are the 10 ideas when you wonder how to wear a choker top!
1. DRESSED UP WITH A FAUX LEATHER SKIRT FOR A CLASSIC COOL LOOK
Is that just me but I truly think the choker neck top is the perfect pair with a faux leather skirt for a more dressed-up look?
As the choker neck top looks stylish and cool, it just matches the vibes of the faux leather skirt in such a harmonious way and elevates your look with a sense of modernness.
If you want to enrich your look, you can always choose a skirt with a silver or gold front zipper to highlight the dress.
Plus, that’s a great combo for monochrome wearing as it’s always stylish to pair different fabrics together.
Even though both the choker neck top and the skirt are in black, the faux leather fabric will stand out with a shade of shininess to brighten the look.
So ladies, when in doubt, pair it with the leather skirt and you are good to go!
2. DRESSED DOWN WITH JEANS FOR A CASUAL STYLE
When it comes to the casual look, pairing it with jeans is a no-brainer.
You can pair the plain T-shirt or graphic choker tee for the casual lazy Sunday look.
Despite sneakers, you can always wear pointed flats or sandals to feel more put-together.
I really love this style as it looks simple yet stylish. Instead of wearing a plain white tee, the chocker neck design just spices up the look!
By the way, if you can’t find the ideal choker neck graphic tee, try to DIY it yourself!
All you need to do is find the regular graphic tee and cut a triangle. But of course, it’s easier said than done!
3. PAY ATTENTION TO THE FABRIC FOR A VERSATILE LOOK
Despite the modern cool girls’ look, you can definitely look feminine and elegant if you pay attention to the fabrics.
Despite cotton and linen, it’s time to explore other fabrics like silk, satin, velvet, or chiffon!
These fabrics just add a sense of high fashion and grace to the outfit and elevate the look.
Plus, I will always choose the matte finish for a more subtle and delicate look.
Some ladies worried the choker neck design is too juvenile for them.
Well, certainly not with the satin choker neck top with chiffon sleeves! So yes, fabric really matters and it’s always worth the money!
4. WEAR ONE NECK CHOKER TOP FOR AN UNIQUE LOOK
When it comes to one neck choker top, all I can say is it’s the ultimate combination of sexiness, style, and elegance!
I wish I knew this design earlier as one neck choker top is absolutely stunning.
Let’s be honest, not everyone can pull off the choker design easily. As a girl with a chubby cheek and a short neck, some of the designs will make my neck look stubby.
However, with the one-neck choker top, I can show a longer neckline and visually shed some heaviness on my upper body.
Not to mention, with the asymmetrical design, it just naturally looks more stylish and chic!
If you need some confidence boast next time, you know what to wear to look more put together!
5. WEAR OFF-SHOULDER TO CREATE A SMALLER FACE ILLUSION
If the one-neck shoulder neck top is a little bit too dressed up for you, no worries, off-shoulder is another great choice!
Similar to the one-shoulder top, it avoids adding bulk to the upper chest area. At the same time, it just lifts up the look with the right amount of sexiness.
For the ladies who think off-shoulder is too youthful, you can always try the cold shoulder top for a sophisticated feminine look!
6. OPT FOR A THIN CHOKER NECK IF YOU HAVE CHUBBY CHEEKS
Let’s be real here, the thick choker neck is not easy to style. It’s true that if you have a long and slim neck, the choker can accentuate its beauty.
However, if you have a relatively short neck or chubby cheeks like me, the choker gonna make you look really stubby.
Plus, we should always choose a V-neck shirt instead of a round neck.
That way, we can show a triangle space under the choker neck and that certainly helps contour our body ratio visually!
The design of the top really matters so don’t be lazy about checking out the dimension when you shop online!
7. PAIR A CHOKER NECK TOP WITH OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS
If you want a cool look, pairing a choker neck top with the in-trend over-the-knee boots is a no-brainer.
To look more put together with the outfit, I will always wear a black fitted choker neck top with black tight high boots together.
With the black from head to toe, fewer color palettes will help elongate our bodies and make us taller. (You certainly don’t need to go all black to achieve this effect!)
For a chic look, pairing skinny jeans with thigh-high boots is always flattering to our legs.
I am not kidding, but I always feel like I am at least 3 inches taller visually when I do this combination.
Vice versa, for a more comfy casual look, you can pair with the flat thigh-high boots and the kitten heel versions!
You can also choose colors other than black for a softer and cozier vibe.
Beige thigh-high boots are definitely one of my favorites – it’s so underrated!
8. LOOK FOR A CHOKER NECK TOP WITH ELEGANT DESIGNS
I am really glad that choker neck tops are actually more versatile than I thought. Despite the cool design, there are some feminine and graceful designs like lace and strings.
Plus, these tops are usually more formal. For example, it’s completely okay to pair an elegant black scallop trim top with a grey pencil skirt for work!
So, ladies, the choker neck top is really versatile.
With the right design, I am sure you can wear them in the workplace too!
9. STYLE A CHOKER NECK TOP WITH A NECKLACE TO ELONGATE THE NECK
Is wearing a choker neck top means you don’t have to wear any necklaces or other accessories to spice up your look?
Of course not!
Besides adding some layers to the outfit, the V shape of the necklaces always draws people’s attention and again, makes you look slender in the upper body.
To accentuate this effect, avoid wearing anything chunky like the collar necklaces.
Instead, the delicate long Y necklace looks best with the choker neck top!
Last but not least, don’t forget to wear necklaces underneath the top, otherwise that can look really clumsy and awkward.
10. PICK THE CHOKER TOP ACCORDING TO YOUR STYLE
Finally here’s the last tip! While this is so common sense, I just want to touch on it – fitted top or a loose top looks better?
My answer is, it really depends on what style you prefer. Sometimes it’s not solely the designs of the clothes that make the top look sexy, but the cutting combined.
A fitted top will hugs the curves of our body, with the crop neck design, which can look a bit alluring.
It’s perfect for the party night but if you want a top that’s appropriate for workwear, a loose yet not baggy crop neck top will be your choice.
So ladies, here are the 10 ideas when it comes to what to wear with a choker top! Let’s have a quick sum-up first.
