Skull Candy

20 Oct

Fashion says “me too.”  Style says “only me.”  Got a girly pink skirt?  A basic pair of skinny jeans?  A plain LBD?  Don’t be afraid to throw something unexpected into your ensembles.  Juxtaposition – girly & goth, preppy & boho, chic & punk – is what makes an outfit.  Why not add some skulls? 

Although Halloween is right around the corner, you don’t have to limit your skull attire/ accessories to October (despite popular belief).  Skulls have been a fun addition to many designer’s collections over the past few seasons.  If an Alexander McQueen skull scarf or a sparkly skull clutch is too much for you, try something a little more subdued – like this Lavender Skull Blouse. 

4 little words: high waist, circle skirt.  If you don’t own one…get with the program!  They pair perfectly with a blouse or tee for a put-together daytime look.  By night, convert your look with a cute crop top.  If it is cold, a sweater can be super chic too.  A belt cinched at the waist, while not necessary, can really pull the look together.

Skirts and skulls – step out of your normal fashion boundaries this fall and try experimenting with something unexpected with an outfit.  I promise you’ll have fun!
