Fashionnova Puppy Love Dress in Taupe // Levity Mules (similar here) // Ray Bans

I spent my Sunday afternoon enjoying brunch with my sister and our close friend – we had the best meal at True Food Kitchen in Santa Monica. The weather was so warm in LA this weekend – I’m definitely ready for cooler temperatures though.

For my girls brunch, I pulled out my Fashionnova Puppy Love dress. I had been waiting to buy this dress for weeks as it was sold out for a bit. When I finally got my hands on it, I purchased it in the taupe as well as in the pink hue. The off-the-shoulder dress is a steal for $29.99!

I decided to add my trusty black mules to keep it casual and a pop of color with my orange Ray Bans. The choker is just faux suede ribbon tied around my neck.

I headed to work right after but it was such a great way to start to my Sunday!

Trend Alert: Chokers

Dec
16

Chokers are one of those accessories that will always add that sexy factor.  It can take a polished look and make it instantly effortless and edgy. You can go simple with a black ribbon-style choker or go all out with a blinged out version.  This type of necklace is definitely a nod to the 1990’s but over 25 years later, it’s still a must have piece for any girl’s jewelry box. Check  out five ways to style a choker!

1.Black X White X Gold

Miranda Kerr wowed while at LAX airport last week, pairing a gold studded black and white choker with a dark hued bomber jacket, white crop top and cream colored high-waisted leggings.  She added black pointed boots, a large bag and vintage style sunglasses.  The choker took the neutral toned look and added a nice metallic detail.  The colors of the necklace also tie in the white, cream and black of the outfit perfectly!

2) A Simple Black Choker

Gigi Hadid wore a black ribbon-like choker while out and about in West Hollywood with Zayn Malik.  This is a great way to add an edgy touch in the simplest way–she styled the choker with a black velvet crop top, a leather jacket and high waisted jeans.  This look is so effortlessly cool and so easy to recreate!  Make sure to pull your hair back into a low bun so you can show off the choker!

3) Charm + Choker

Cara Delevingne styled a choker with a large sparkling charm, giving the whole look a pop! This choker is great for adding a unique touch to an all black look and is something that will draw a lot of attention to your décolletage. The slightly off center look is also a good way to make the necklace less formal, perfectly paired with a high bun and red lips.

4) Bandanna Choker

Kylie Jenner added a bandanna to her night out look, pairing it with a black dress, a leather bomber jacket and lace up heels.  She took a folded bandanna and tied it around her neck–adding a cool girl touch to the ensemble.  It can even be done with colorful scarves if you don’t have a bandanna, just fold it diagonal and then fold it over until it becomes the width you want it to be.  This look is great if you want it to look edgy but not vampy.

5) Tie it up

I love the way Gigi styles her chokers–it always looks so effortless. The blonde beauty is wearing a rope-style necklace–meaning it looks like several chokers layered  on top of each other. She added the light blue choker to a white top and duster coat with leather leggings. The light color is a great way to add a sexy touch to a look without making it vampy.  Instead this is an airy, posh look that can add a nice detail to a look. The light color is a nice change and pairs perfectly with the white top and jacket.
