The Trend: The Choker
The bird or the cage? As Elizabeth demonstrates, the choker is not just a flattering piece of jewellery but an opportunity to make a statement. Here are four bold takes on this trend:
1. The classic choker: ASOS - Cameo Choker Necklace, $15.05
2. The cute choker: Topshop - Engraved Rose Choker, $20
3. The daring choker: Forever 21 - Retro Woven Chain Choker, $8.80
4. The smart choker: Mango - Snake Chain Choker, $39.99
Trend Tip: For a sweet, layered look like Kairi’s, try wearing a simple choker with one or two fine chain pendants.

Inspired by Booker Dewitt from Bioshock: Infinite
I wanted to put together a work-ready outfit inspired by Booker to really draw upon the layers and vintage feeling of Booker’s outfit. 
Style Tip: Oxfords are an interesting shoe for women. They’re similar to flats, but still need to worn with either low socks or tights. I didn’t include either of those in this outfit because I think either would look great, it’s up to your personal preference for comfort. 
1. I wanted to replicate Booker’s layers, but in a feminine way. I chose a lace tank top paired with a longer cardigan instead of a vest. // Top: Tilly’s - Full Tilt Lace Zip Corset, $18 / Cardigan: Les Pommettes - Basic Cardigan, $75
2. I incorporated red through dark red leather accessories, also creating a more rugged look. I also chose red rose earrings as a nod to Columbia. // Purse: Asos - Leather Across Body Bag, $77 / Bracelet: ShopBop - Gorjana Sadie Triple Wrap Bracelet, $50 / Earrings: Brooks Brothers - Rose Stud Earrings, $30
3. I wanted to incorporate some masculine pieces into the outfit to bring that Booker feeling to life, so I chose a plaid suit pencil skirt and brown oxfords. // Skirt: House of Fraser - Jolie Moi Bow Detailed Skirt, $30 / Shoes: Macy’s - Davie Oxford, $80
