Fashion Trend Report 1 of 10: Choker Necklaces

Know the styles and necklines of clothes for the season ahead to offer the right jewelry in store

Key fall ready-to-wear clothing shows in four cities—New York, London, Milan, and Paris—took place Feb. 2–March 9, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends that will affect the jewelry we wear. Jewelers need to note these trends (see the entire report here) in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season ahead. Choker necklaces are the first trend to consider stocking; here are five new ones to coordinate with the season’s most important styles.

Choker and collar necklaces. These styles will remain a priority through the fall. Luxury designers such as Alexander WangJill Stuart, and Dolce & Gabbana dressed their runway models in them, while the works of others (think Diane von Furstenberg) virtually begged for big necklaces because of open real estate on the neckline. Another observation: Don’t be afraid to layer these with longer friends.
