From the kinky-meets-cool at Alexander Wang to the intricate at Oscar de la Renta and Versace, the message from the Autumn/Winter 2016 catwalk was clear: chokers are still a thing. So it was only natural that we then saw practically every PYT trying the trend at Coachella last month. Taylor Swift noticed the neck-movement too, posting a pic of her choker-clad ‘Chella crew on Instagram claiming, “I feel like maybe chokers are the new flower crowns?”
Given that it’s still all eyes on the neck, now’s a better time than ever to address its specific ageing concerns.
After all, ask any skin expert for their top anti-ageing advice and second to the obvious mother of all truths to “wear sunscreen all day, every day”, it’s generally “take creams and serums down to the chest.” Why? Our neck is more vulnerable to gravity’s pull, plus any age spots, sagging and lines on the neck area are trickier to treat than those north of the jawline.
