All Choked Up: Winter’s Hottest Trend is A Chic Throwback to The 90’s

  Throughout the years we’ve seen trends come and go. Some were excitingly chic while other’s weren’t as memorable. One winter trend that has been causing a riot is the return of the ever-so-chic choker. You might have thought the trend dies out like most trends from the 90’s but you be wrong. This time around the trend takes on more than just the simplistic piece of thread around one’s neck. As seen on 2014 Pre-Fall runway shows such as Hermès and YSL, the choker’ has being reinvented with colorful jewels and beautiful pendants. For a gal that was born in the midst of the 90’s, this particular trend is one I would be willing to stick my neck out for; pun intended!

My Winter Essentials

Generally, I’m a huge summer enthusiast. I love shorts, maxi dresses, and overflowing chic scarfs. Basically everything that sums up summer, I’m a fan. But lately I’ve been anticipating the arrival of winter ever since the Christmas decorations starting going up. In my opinion, I feel that A/W collections are ten times better than the summer ones. Just take a look at Phillip Lim’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Can you say insanely chic? But as much as my new found love for winter suddenly increases, unfortunately the temperature decreases. With that being said, winter essentials are a vital part of the season; especially since I will be moving to NYC shortly. So I’ve complied a bunch of my favorite winter items which I feel are a requirement in order to fully survive the cold days that are ahead of us. Enjoy!   1.
