It’s the end of October, which means it’s officially autumn, and it’s also Halloween. Surely, then, the perfect time to add some Gothic touches to your wardrobe? Skulls are in style, and here’s how to incorporate them into your outfit.
If anything could epitomise this combination of seasonal change and Gothic grandeur, it’s this gorgeous sequined skull jumper by Markus Lupfer. Will be perfect with skinny jeans and ankle boots, and adds the right amount of sparkle. Being merino-wool it will keep you jolly warm which is really what we all want right now. Available from Harvey Nichols for £240.
Of course, nothing symbolises the British weather more than the black umbrella and nobody does skulls like Alexander McQueen. So really, this is a match made in heaven. This skull-print umbrella is a practical way to add some designer class, and black glitter-embellished skulls will give you an edge over the drudgery of the usual sea of umbrellas. You can buy it from Net-A-Porter for £190.
If the price of designer skulls is a bit too spooky, a great option is this knuckle duster ring from ASOS. A less obvious way to add the Halloween touch, it features a skull and heart design and would subtly toughen up the most feminine outfit. Frankly, I think this would go with anything and at £12 there’s nothing scary about the price.
