It’s not often the street style crowd introduce a trend you can DIY for under $2, in five seconds flat, but here we have it: An affordable, easy to copy accessory trend that fashion girls like blogger Margaret Zhang were flipping for on the streets of Fashion Week this season.
Specifically, we’re talking about the ribbon choker, a ’90s look that literally involves tying a thin piece of ribbon in a bow, like a choker necklace, around your neck. You can snap up the materials from Etsy to DIY this look for less than the cost of your morning coffee, or buy a ready-made ribbon choker for under $5.
Here, Zhang styles hers with a flared-sleeve top and boyfriend jeans, but the piece works with just about any collarless top or dress. Keep clicking to shop her full look, or step this way to just snag the ribbon.
