2. Feminine and Sophisticated Style
To provide more drama and sexiness to your neckline, opt for metallic chokers in gold or silver that look perfect with a chic dress. Just go for solid colors of your blouse or dress as you don’t want too much going on around your neck if you want the choker to be the main emphasis of your outfit. The easiest neckline style to wear with a choker is a top or dress with a plunging or scooped style to draw the attention to your face.
