Trend alert: Skulls

We've been hearing about this so-called skull trend for months, but most of the skull-emblazoned fashion I've seen looks like it belongs more in a Hot Topic than in a high-end boutique. But if you must wear a skull motif, the key is keeping it subtle and avoiding garments that could double as pirate flags.

Here are a few skullified finds:

Skull scarf, $19, available here

For even bolder looks,

La Petite Mort 1960s checkered skirt, $95, available here

LaROK Skull Boat Neck, $188, available here

I like skulls, but only on accessories, like scarfs, or jewelry.

Mmmmm, that's an excellent point vintagesugar. Thank you, now I'm *glad* I no longer have that hoodie. Who said women are fickle?

But if you wear a trendy skull to be rebellious, aren't you just another sheep? Really, this is such a bad idea that anyone who wears skullregalia is just there for the trend, IMHO.

Yeah, I love the skull skarfs too! Skulls are cute, I have a few skull items, but I don't think everyone can pull them off.

i like the skull scarfs, but anything else is just alittle to rebelious for me.

Is a parrot a fashion faux pas? Dammit. I didn't know that.

I like that whole skull look, but it shouldnt be to much. If you put more than one skull piece on you and you can call yourself a pirate only thing missing then is a parrot.

My sis has a bunch of cute items with skulls and they look great on her, but they aren't for everyone!

I'm also seeing a ton of skull jewelry at shopbop, Intuition and Fashion Flairs. Definitely trendy for fall.

Dammit, now I'm REALLY annoyed that I sold my vintage Bones Brigade hoodie on eBay. :) But I still want my skull & crossbones, Kiss Me I'm A Pirate tote bag.

I think this look can be cute, if done in a subtle and feminine manner. I'm not a big fan of pink and bows and ruffles, so I like a bit of edginess in my clothing.

Its not for me. But if you wore this stuff, Avril might curse you out and say you sweat her style.
