Styling a Choker Dress

Elegant, effortless, and always in style, a choker neck dress elongates the figure with its high neckline. Flattering for a range of body shapes, it skims your silhouette from the waist up, for a look that is both seductive and demure. Usually sleeveless, a choker dress suits those with an enigmatic personality, who like to follow fashion and make a statement while adding their own stamp of style. 

How to Wear a Choker Dress

A choker dress is incredibly versatile because it can be dressed up or down. In the daytime, try it with espadrilles and colorful bangles jangling on each arm. In the evening, amplify the drama with stilettos, delicate drop earrings, and a petite clutch. Try it with a sleek hair-updo for a polished look or soften the style for beach vibes in the summer.

OMARU Silk Chiffon Choker Dresses

Our two sleek and simple choker dresses were inspired by OMARU founder’s mother Bintu and sister Jenneh. The chokers embody the elegant and feminine spirit of those women and are versatile and timeless.

This dress features delicate silk chiffon, which is expertly gathered at the waist and neck for a pretty, pleated finish. Cut just below the neck, the choker is not restrictive, resting gently on the collarbones in a way that can be worn all day.

Extra fabric is afforded through the A-Line skirt for a flowy look and feel, while the waistline features additional fabric and support to expertly frame the silhouette. Delicate, layered chiffon adds an aura of romance to the design, which is silky soft to the touch. The result is a beautiful, high-quality garment with a fiercely feminine appeal and all-day wearability.
