Way back when, anything skull related was worn by and associated with disobedient teens and rebellious youth from the other side of the tracks. At least that’s what I remember seeing in cheesy old 80’s movies like The Lost Boys, which I’m actually particularly fond of. But there were tons of other movies as well that feature daredevil youths in revolt.
Skulls are generally associated with bikers, gangs, leather, studs, and other “taboos”. But that was then, and this is now. Punky pop skulls have made their way back into our wardrobes as a HUGE summer 2012 trend.
This time we’re seeing them in our jewelry boxes as necklaces, bracelets, earrings and scarves. It was a slow start for the skull, but now they’re popping up on fashionable wrists everywhere!
Skulls can be feminine too! They aren’t just reserved to patches on jackets or plastered across tees in flames. The late Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) was known for using skulls in his work.

A scarf he designed became a celebrity must-have, and many have copied the trend since then. McQueen-esque scarves have become an unexpected classic wardrobe staple.
The skull is not only designated to scarves this summer; we’re seeing them on tees and chiffon blouses as well!
