Things I Love – Skulls

Originally published on adornYou here: Things I Love – Skulls

I admit I have a massive obsession with skull accessories. I can’t get enough of them, but I’m always a bit cautious that too much skullery can be overkill.

As much as I love the rock-chick look, gothic chic is going a bit far.

So, how can you get the look…

My absolute favourite designer is Alexander McQueen.

I love the mix of skulls, studs and femininity. His chiffon scarves are stunning (I love them so much I have two – great ebay finds) but who can afford to deck themselves out in McQueen exclusively? Certainly not me.

Luckily, there is an abundance of skull accessories available at the moment. If you look carefully, you can find some pretty great pieces that are similar in look to their more exclusive designer counter-parts.

Collette

Like this Collette clutch. I think you’ll agree that it’s a very similar item, but at only $39.95, it’s much more affordable that the McQueen equivalent of (eekk!) $1,990.

This Betsy Johnson ($55) ring is super cute, 2013-05-23 12.07.14 pm and it’s a great way of adding a bit of skull-core without sacrificing sparkle.

Or how about this statement necklace from ASOS. It’s hard to argue with $40.12 with free worldwide shipping!

What are your favourite skull accessories? Do you have a favourite item or do you like to mix it up with some funky nail polish to break it up? Leave a comment & let us know!
