Wrap up in a skull embellished scarf.

Call yourself what you will– dark, rebellious, temporal, Tibetan, or just plain rock-n-roll—skulls (and the oft ensuing crossbones) aren’t just for the crazies anymore. Everybody’s wearing and making them, from punks to babies, magazine editors to couture designers, so it can’t hurt do indulge in your shadier side and flaunt some bones.

Although sources of the popularity of skulls are not quite clear, it’s safe to say they were made popular by the pirate… and conjure up imagery and symbolism that range from just plain rebel to just plain aware of your own mortality.

Maybe you think of the Hell’s Angels when you think of them, but Karl Lagerfeld wears them just as readily as Loree Rodkin cranks out $30,000+ diamond skull necklaces, belts and earrings from LA. So, go on. Don a skull somewhere. You’ll probably feel delightfully wicked for the day, and if you’re lucky you might just spook someone a little bit in the process! Skulls aren’t just for Halloween afterall. Express your high-seas minded fashion by creating your own skull sweater. Find cozy, punk rock skull slippers at
