Last year, we saw the rise, rather, the comeback of the choker. This '90s trend is made of a tiny piece of fabric or leather, worn tightly around the neck, and it became a huge hit, specifically with the ladies.
Come 2017, it’s the men who are jumping on the choker bandwagon.
You read that right. Man chokers are in.
British online shop ASOS just debuted their own line a few days ago, and the accessory has already stirred up more online drama than expected. Most of the reactions, unsurprisingly, are not in favor of this recent style shift.
Wearing man chokers is not new, actually. In fact, some male celebrities were sporting this trend long before its resurgence into the mainstream.
Here's Jared Leto
And even John Lennon
Unless you're a rock star or as ridiculously handsome as Jared Leto, this trend seems (and looks) pretty uncomfortable.
