Meet your new must-have accessory.

The 90’s choker trend is making a comeback! You’ve probably seen them on the high street or your fave celebs rocking them. They’re literally all over Instagram too.

Before you go out and buy one, have you ever thought about using a shoelace instead? This girl did and she instantly became an overnight sensation.

Instead of buying a choker, Twitter User Katie got creative and used a shoelace on a night out and has received a huge amount of compliments for her new accessory. 

She even went to Twitter to thank Nike for the shoelace.


Girls were tweeting her back, showing off their unique styles too.



Lesson of the day: look around your house for accessories before buying them!
