If you’re looking to step up your wardrobe, there’s one accessory you need right now: the necklace bib. Some call it a choker, some call it a neckplate, I call all of these cluster-y, glitter-y, cropped necklaces by their official name: the bib. Period, paragraph. Sitting snugly on the collarbone, the bib necklace is certainly not a choker (no matter what Kristen Wiig wore to the 2012 SAG awards, God love her).
My favourite bib for a while has been my Mixed Chain necklace by Rachel Roy, but now I’ve got another keeper in my collection. My new bib is a steal that looks like a spend. The Forever 21 Ribbon-Trimmed Choker is a $12 grab. I’ve glammed-up my sweater sets with this structural statement piece, I’ve worn it with T-shirts and set it nicely with my LBDs. It’s such a versatile piece that has left some of my most stylish friends asking “Oooh, where’d you get that?”
