Appropriately enough, today Slate ran a slideshow run-down on the history of skulls in fashion. Once scary, then edgy, and now solidly entrenched in the chic mainstream, the look is everywhere. Evidence of that fact is Alexander McQueen’s knuckle duster, which is priced well over a grand, yet somehow still sold out everywhere in black (however, you can join the waitlist for more at Net-a-Porter). Luckily it’s still around in bright girly pink.
Let’s keep our cranial indulgence to a reasonable quotient. This skull-print scarf is less of an investment than McQueen’s clutch bag, but still lets you get your fix of both the designer and the look. And William Rast’s skull tank presents a whimsical, almost cheerful version of the image. Of course, skulls are often best presented in 3-D, which is why we’ve got a few different macabre jewelry options for you to get the style.
