Style my Outfit with Skull Jewellery

First worn in the 16th century as a reminder of the fragility of life, the skull has been worn by people for many years and, throughout history, it has been associated with all things dark and sinister.

As a symbol of danger, death, or risk, the skull has also been thought of as a scary symbol, and this meant that it tended to predominantly make an appearance in people’s wardrobes around Halloween.

However, more recently the skull has become a much-loved part of mainstream fashion, adopted by famous designers and worn by A list celebrities, to make it one of the most popular trends in this industry.

One aspect that makes the skull so popular is its versatility. By pairing a skull with wings, hearts or butterflies they can be given a feminine look, whereas teaming them with flames, crossbones or snakes gives them a powerful presence that portrays strength and bravery.

Easily integrated into a variety of designs, skulls are the perfect focus for jewellery as they complement such a wide range of styles and have a wonderfully timeless appeal. This has also made them a popular choice for clothing, home décor, and even tattoos.

To make a statement, a necklace with a large skull pendant is a great way to incorporate this trend into your outfit as it will become the focus of what you are wearing. Or, for a subtler approach, necklaces featuring a cluster of pendants, including a skull, are a lovely way to add some variety to your look.

A skull ring is possibly one of the most well-known ways to wear this symbol, and is widely associated with goth, heavy metal and rock fashion. A plain metal skull ring is the perfect choice for adding some understated edge to your outfit, or find one with a bit of sparkle to create a tough but feminine statement.

For a slightly more understated nod to the skull jewellery trend, a pair of skull earrings will look great without taking the focus away from the rest of your outfit. You could even mix and match skull studs, if you have more than one ear piercing, to create a look that is unique to you.

For the ultimate statement, a skull navel bar is the must-have skull accessory for anyone with a navel piercing. With numerous designs available, which match skulls with both feminine and more traditional symbols, you are sure to find one that matches your own personal style.

Layering up skull bracelets is another way to incorporate this trend into your outfit, and experimenting with different styles, sizes, shapes and colours is sure to give you a whole variety of looks that you love.

As a timeless symbol that can be worn in so many ways, you can be sure that your chosen skull jewellery will complement your style and wardrobe for many years to come.
