Create the look of a choker top without owning one by starting with a basic top.
Choker tops and cold shoulder tops, are two of my favorite styles right now, but today I am focusing on the choker top. Here I used a white top, Long Sleeve Simple Comfort, by Covered Perfectly to create a choker effect.
Finding one that fits exactly as I would like is easier said than done! They look great on the hanger but I find either the "choker" is too tight, the "v neck" too low or the choker is made from a completely different fabric that is uncomfortable!
With the same top, I was able to create another outfit. A double sided twist to a scarf, can create the same effect as a choker top.
What I worked out one evening when the "planned" outfit didn't work, was a scarf to create the same look without the drama!
I love the way a scarf can enhance and/or change the outfit completely! I collect them whenever I can, matching a scarf to most of the tops I own is the easiest way to create the choker top.
I also find the neck wrap to be very flattering on a lower neckline top.
Most of the tops in your closet could probably be paired with a scarf which allows you to coordinate colors you are in the mood for that day.
To create the next look I used the Cross Over Top.The white long sleeved top, Long Sleeve Simple Comfort (my favorite), and the forest green top, Cross Over Top, are both by Covered Perfectly. The blue and white stretch pants are from Chico's The first scarf is from a new company I found The Bias Cut, the second scarf, a gift from my husband while in Spain from a company called Purification Garcia, and the third one from Loft.
