Call yourself what you will– dark, rebellious, temporal, Tibetan, or just plain rock-n-rollâ€”skulls (and the oft ensuing crossbones) arenâ€™t just for the crazies anymore. Everybodyâ€™s wearing and making them, from punks to babies, magazine editors to couture designers, so it canâ€™t hurt do indulge in your shadier side and flaunt some bones.
Although sources of the popularity of skulls are not quite clear, itâ€™s safe to say they were made popular by the pirateâ€¦ 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 Hellâ€™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. Youâ€™ll probably feel delightfully wicked for the day, and if youâ€™re lucky you might just spook someone a little bit in the process! Skulls arenâ€™t just for Halloween afterall. Express your high-seas minded fashion by creating your own skull sweater. Find cozy, punk rock skull slippers at Zappos.com.
