Ballerinas and the upper class in the late 19th century commonly wore certain types of chokers. However, at that same time, a plain, thin, red or black ribbon choker had ties to prostitution in the late 19th century, as seen in Manet's Olympia (1861), while a plain black woven choker or ribbon could signify secret lesbianism in the Depression era. The 19th century fashion for broad Chokers reached its peak around 1900 in part due to Queen Alexandra of Denmark wearing one to hide a small scar. Chokers became quite popular among women and girls in the 1990s. The 1990s fashion trend has recently resurfaced in the mid-2010s.
