Choker Tops: Necklace and Top in One Easy Piece

tee | cozy jacket

Friends. You most likely know by now I don’t accessorize a lot. I wear the same earrings most days, my wedding and engagement rings and sunglasses on a good day. Necklaces? Um, I have some that mostly spend their time in my closet. I’ve recently discovered a solution to my laziness or inability to choose the right necklace for the outfit…buy a top with the necklace built-in! Voila. Look at me, accessorizing. Does this count? I think so. Not only are these tops easy, but they’re just the right amount of sexy, too. Comfy and appropriate for a night out? My sweet spot. I found two tops that I love…check it.

Black Tank Choker Top

Outfit Details

TopExpress One Eleven Music Choker Tank – Love this tank. Super rocker style and will be fun for summer. I got a medium and it’s just a tiny bit too big/low-cut, but I didn’t want a top like this to be fitted. If you’re between sizes though you might want to go down. It’s not a tight-fitting top.

JacketBlankNYC Easy Rider Jacket – Love this jacket, you all know. Such a great price for a really sturdy, badass jacket. Wearing size Small.

JeansAG Sloan Vintage Straight Leg – These jeans are a seriously great closet addition. I feel fancier when I wear them. Fit true to size. Wearing 27, for reference.

Shoes – (similar)  Looking back I think the jacket is too heavy with these wedge sandals. I might go for something chunkier like these cool sandals or the Jeffrey Campbell lace-ups I love.


Long-Sleeved Tee Choker Top

Outfit Details

TopExpress Cut-out Trapeze Choker Long Sleeved Top – Love this top. It’s a little drapey and very comfy. The choker cutout is soft on the neck and not bothersome. It’s a leeetle sexy but not revealing. I’ve worn it out a couple of times and it’s a great go-to date night top. I’m also loving this black one with a shirt-tail hem. Wearing a size Small.

JeansAG Sloan Vintage Straight Leg – Love these. Love the wash. Love the rise. And the large cuff and wider leg feel very chic and fun. True to size. Wearing 27, for reference.

Boots – (similar) Cecile Ankle Boots

    Talk about a top doing double duty. Trendy for the younger woman and hides turkey neck for us older gals. Lol.

    Looks like this may be an easy DIY with your own tshirts. What do you think? A brand new neckline. Interesting.
    Thanks. Good post.

      Yes! I’ve been thinking about this, too. I think I may get a crew neck tee and try it!
