One of the hottest – yet still most unique – trends being increasingly seen on the streets and in Hollywood, is the mightily macabre Skull Print.
Graduating from its goth roots, it is fast becoming the fashionista’s fashion staple of choice.
The Skull Print’s transition to fashion mainstream was kick-started by the popularity of the ubiquitous Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf.
But – however enduring the McQueen Scarf’s allure may be – fashionistas are increasingly on the alert for new and exciting ways to work the trend… And Fashion Pony has the answer!
1. Work the dichotomy angle. Combine with lady-like styles for a modern, more fashion-forward look…
Instead of taking the typical scarf or vest top route (so ’09), add an edginess to typically lady-like styles, by picking Skull Prints on items such as Pussybow Blouses and Pencil Skirts.
This Skull and Crown Print Pussybow Blouse from independent fashion designer Bo Carter – available exclusively online at Fashionpony.co.uk- is a perfect example of how this can work to stunning effect. Available in both White and Black colourways, at £50 each we want both! It’s a must-have designer piece… at a high street price.
2.Don’t be afraid of colour.
Black and white are classic but other strong colours such as yellow and red can really
make the print pop, like this attention-grabbing Red Skull Print Skirt from independent label Ages of Elegance.
3. Style it up!
Choose a piece that can be styled to suit your mood – the aforementioned Ages of Elegance skirt can be styled down or up…
Happy shopping! xxx
