Wear it now: The Choker Top

My previous post was all about wearing a choker, 90s style. Now let’s get the scoop on choker tops. It’s everywhere and it’s cute! Here are some awesome ways to wear it without flinching or having others flinch at you on the streets.

Shraddha Kapoor sported one for Masaba’s show during the Lakme Fashion Week 2016. I think this look would have worked better without all the OTT make-up. Also, her hair would have done much better if it was sleeked out rather than being left open in a mess like they did. However I get the cue that we are going to see a lot of choker sari and lehenga blouses very soon. Wow, I really do feel like I’m back in the 90s where too many of my dresses were choker style.


 Here is Sonam Kapoor spotted looking cute in a choker styled outfit.


Anyway, coming back to 2016, wearing a choker style top/dress on Indian streets can be wearisome. So here is how you can pull off a Sonam Kapoor without feeling awkward or uncomfortable.

First, find that awesome choker top. I found this one on jabong.com:


And team it with a pretty floral flared skirt like this one:


And for a touch that makes it more wearable on the Indian streets without having to worry about oggling eyes, just throw on a sleeveless black jacket.

Now how about giving the choker top our very own Desi twist and owning it?
To create a global fusion outfit, team the same choker top with a flowy, long, printed tunic and palazzo pants.
Check out this contemporary black and white, printed, long jacket:
Wear it over these striking red palazzo pants for a perfect Indian fusion look:
Add some bangles and an embellished sling bag for that added glimmer.
