Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mourn the death of the choker trend. Choker died peacefully having been taken to its logical conclusion: also serving as a neck brace.
Twitter roasted Forever 21 for their the necklace that'll also provide support when you're recovering from an injury.

The "necklace" is paired with a Star Wars baseball jersey, the official "Cool Girl" uniform (Natty Light beer sold separately).

The neck brace is just the tip of the iceberg.

If you're not ready to let go of the trend from 2016 from 1998, it's easy to DIY.

RIP chokers. I'm sure we'll meet again in 20 years ... or in the summer when they won't be obscured by scarves.
