How to Accessorize With Skulls

Fashion trends are ever moving and changing, but, there are always going to be a few staples that seem to withstand the test of time. One such traditional staple is the skull. Whether it is a human or animal skull, we have always seemed fascinated by this design.

But, if you haven’t ever implemented skulls into your overall aesthetic before, it can be a little intimidating at first. Fortunately, there are many different ways on how to accessorize with skulls, while not going absolutely overboard.

Some ways to accessorize with this macabre symbol are:

  1. Body Jewelry.

Body jewelry is a good way to discreetly add skulls into your wardrobe. Whether you want to wear crossbone plugs, barbells, or even dangle earrings, these skull accessories can be found almost anywhere.

They’re functional and stylish. Belts can either have a skull print inlayed onto the actual length of the belt or can be accessorized themselves with a flashy skull belt buckle.

  1. Purses.

Accessorizing with purses is by far one of the common trends followed by most women. But, they can sometimes be neglected as the accessory that they are. If you want to add a skull or two into your overall look, carrying one decorated with skull prints, buttons, or zipper pulls is always a great way to go.
