We’ve all heard the saying ‘history repeats itself’ and it’s completely true in the world of fashion. Over the past year we’ve seen numerous Nineties fashion trends come and go, but there’s one trend that seems to be here to stay – choker necklaces. When was the last time you spotted one of the Kardashian clan without a choker on? We don’t remember either. So you love the trend but you’re not sure how to rock it? Keep reading for our top styling tips on different ways to wear this year’s favourite jewellery piece!
The choker trend is so hot right now. You’ll see a variety of necklaces everywhere you look, but our current favourite has to be the stunning Athena Choker necklace. Part of our Radiant Rose collection, this enchanting piece has fast become our go-to accessory. A classic choker with a contemporary copper twist… You have to admit, it’s hard not to fall in love!
Naturally this is the obvious place to begin. Whether you’re getting ready for a girls’ night or an evening out with your beau, the Athena Choker is the perfect way to add some sparkle to your outfit. If you’re after an elegant look, the staple LBD and rose gold combination is a match made in heaven. We’d add a pair of rose gold coloured heels to really make this look work.
While we love a classic little black dress, a night out with the girls calls for colour. We find the blushing pink hues of rose gold colour work best when worn with lighter colours, but if you’re after a bolder look, why not match the gorgeous Athena with a deep navy or daring red dress? We would wear our hair in a slicked-back ponytail to really let this eye-catching piece be the star of the show!
When it comes to weddings, choosing an outfit is the easy part. Trying to pick the right accessories to go with it is a little trickier. The jewellery you decide to wear needs to be sophisticated with an element of glamour and the Athena Choker provides just that.
Flawless bridesmaid dresses deserve flawless accessories and this Jasmine Harper favourite works especially well with pretty pastels to create a romantic look with a hint of magic. Style your hair in an up-do to really show off the shine this piece gives off.
But what if you’re a guest rather than a bridesmaid? Velvet is all the rage in fashion at the moment and we’re absolutely loving it. Why not match the Athena with a sumptuous velvet dress and block heels? We think this may just be one of our favourite pairings yet!
Whether you’re catching up over coffee, going out for lunch or simply running errands, our Athena Choker is the ideal accessory to dress up your casual everyday looks with.
The blushing prevalence of rose gold combined with the subtle lustre of diamantes will add just the right amount of charm when worn with an off-the-shoulder top and jeans. We would also recommend pairing it with our stunning Hera earrings as a great finishing touch!
We believe that sparse accessories often make the biggest impact when worn with the right outfit and our Athena necklace certainly falls into this category. If you love the effortlessly chic look, why not mix it up and match it with a cute jumper for a more laidback ensemble?
Of course the Athena looks gorgeous by itself, but layering jewellery has been popular for a while and we’re still not over how great it looks. We’ve taken inspiration from the queen of the choker trend, Kendall Jenner, for this fabulous style tip!
Take this as an opportunity to experiment with the pieces sitting in your jewellery box. It’s important to remember here not to overload your neck with jewellery, instead choose one or two more dainty and subtle pieces which you feel work well together.
Personally, we love how the delicately thin silver chain of the Amour necklace works to accentuate the boldness of the Athena. However, if you’re not a fan of mixing colours, why not match this piece with the striking Aphrodite to really make a statement?
There you have it, four fabulous ways to style the beautiful Athena necklace! The best thing about a choker is how it has the ability to create a head-turning look while remaining a simple yet effective way of accessorising. Whether you’re dressing up or going casual, all of your outfits can benefit from the addition of this idyllic piece. Shop yours before they disappear!
