Edwardian Ballerina: Ribbon Chokers

In Spring 2016 there were many designers that featured ribbon chokers on the runway. I like having extra ribbon and trim around to create chokers; it can totally change up a look, tying in a tight neckline and highlighting your face. It adds this coquette vibe that can make any outfit really sexy. 

Rather than pulling from the 90's, these chokers give more of an Edwardian-ballerina touch that I find ultra-feminine and soft. See images from SS2016 runways of Etro, Jill Stuart, and Andrea Incontri for inspiration. Also see FlyMFly's lace chokers on Etsy for something beyond a simple ribbon tie.
