Style Chocolate Chip: Skull Holiday

Skull Holiday

A fashion trend I have seen become ever more popular is skulls, skulls on everything- top to bottom covered in skulls!

What years ago was considered an icon for punk or weird clothing, is now a trend for the chic. Skulls however, have very unique and beautiful meanings in Hispanic cultures.

Skulls have been popularized by glamour and luxury ,much credit granted to  Alexander McQueen- that first put skulls on his runways in 2009. Now most every designer from high couture to commercial fashion has something skull related to offer!

As the holidays that commemorate the skull holidays come rolling along, here are some of my favorite skull picks. Check them out!

Thanks for reading !
