How To Choose A Choker For Every Face Type-
First, determine your face shape if you don’t already know. Tie your hair in a high pony away from your face and observe your face shape well. From the below list, try to ascertain which face shape your face resembles the most.
1. Round face-
This face shape has an equal width to length ratio. The cheeks are the most wider feature and all your features are rounded and soft. The jawline is also curved inwards and gives the face around look. Round-faced ladies are less fortunate when comes to wearing a choker, as they may not be able to wear every type of chokers they like.
For this face type, a wide choker will add to the sense of roundness and make your face look even broader so better stay away from them. The best deal is adding a loose string choker or a layered choker necklace that seems like a choker but is loose and draws away from the neck. Another great option are these front open stylish chokers. They won’t make your neck look short. Great for a trendy twist. This will give your face a structured look.
2. Oval Face-
This is a complementing face shape of the round face but the length of the face is a little longer than the width which tones down the cheeks. The jawline is slightly downwards and the forehead is broad and distinct. Women with oval faces can literally go crazy with chokers, be is thread, sequins, metal chokers or even crochet chokers. Just name it and you can wear it. But be careful to use a colour that complements not just your dress but also your face. The choker necklace will accentuate your long neck and compensate the less width around cheeks with its roundness.
