Jewelry has always been our secret weapon for the late summer dressing conundrum, and this season we can't get enough of the sleek gold choker. With its curvatured shape and gilded sheen, it's inherently sexy for the skin-baring summer months, but come fall it'll look just as chic peeking through layers of cozy knits. Whether you're a minimalist or one for a little frill, there are shapes and adornments (think pearlescent or geometric) to oblige. A seasonless, wear-with-all necklace that's utterly polished? Put us down for one — or five!
