Skelator

In my personal experience, skulls are a little bit polarizing – you either love them, or you hate them.  For me, it’s always been love.  They add an irreverent touch to more classic outfits, can be preppy if properly styled, and are just… fun!  I love pairing my skull pieces with girly touches (something hot pink, a ruffled dress or skirt, glitter.)  Here are a few of my very favorites.  Of course we all know that Alexander McQueen does it best, but of there are loads of affordable options out there… especially on the accessories front.  (And for a DIY version, why not try this necklace or this tee!?)

    I actually love love skeletons/skulls.  I think bc it’s not my personality at all, which makes it fun (I’m zero goth, all bright and shiny and girly!)  My boys wear skull tees and shorts all the time, just bc it makes them look like tough guys at 6 and 4 years old:)

    You know I love a girly / tough combo and skeletons are the perfect edgy accessory to pair with feminine pieces. Loving all these! Excited to catch up tonight too!! x

    I tend to like skulls as well, just pick my time and place to wear them. I love the earrings, and the McQueen flats are so adorable!

    Hmm, I still think I’m in a hate relationship with skulls. I just can’t bring myself to like them! x
