One trend that should have been left in 2016 is the choker. We have reached peak choker, people, We need not choker any longer.
One man, however, did not receive this memo, and that man is Today Show host Matt Lauer. This morning, Lauer released his top button to reveal a black, silk choker and the world will never be the same.
What a time. pic.twitter.com/ygKf8AiJ70

While we applaud Lauer’s willingness to challenge gender stereotypes, this is not a good look for him. In fact, this is not a good look for most men. Whatever marketing whiz at ASOS decided to start targeting chokers towards men can consider themselves my personal enemy. Come at me, bro.
Anyway, if the choker was not dead before, Matt Lauer just killed it, and for that we are thankful.
