I have to admit, the first time I laid eyes on the popular Alexander McQueen skull scarf, it didn't appeal to me.  Being the girly girl that I am, skulls just don't really fit in there anywhere.  But, the more I saw of this scarf, the more I grew to love it.  And before I knew it, I wanted it.  Awesome how trends work that way right?

So here I am,  sporting my own skull scarf.  I never thought I'd see the day.  Meanwhile, I gotta figure out a way to tie it so it's not so long.  A scarf probably isn't supposed to go down to your knees...

To close out, I'll leave you with some pictures that convinced inspired me to add a skull scarf to my wardrobe.  Let me know what you guys think of the skull scarf trend!

I've never really been a fan of "the skull" pint, but I'm loving this scarf and the whole look!  Those mustard pants are just perfect :)

Kileen, I love the teal and mustard color combo. Have to copy exactly!
Skull scarf is on my list of things to get. Yes, I'm totally buying this trend. :)
How does the acrylic feel? 

Catherine said... [Reply]

Skull scarves are fun, and this one looks great with your outfit! Why not triple wrap it around your neck so it creates a collar look? McQueen makes a gorgeous pale green one - the print is very subtle, and I love it! But until I can actually spent $300 on a scarf, it's a fashion dream. :)

Amber said... [Reply]

im not a skull scarf fan, but it looks fine on others. i also hate to spend so much on designer scarves, it seems like such a waste!! im still obsessed with plaid/ burberry prints!

Kileen said... [Reply]

The acrylic in the scarf? I'm not sure what material the scarf is made out...but it's very soft and warm!

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh great idea on triple wrapping it! will have to try that next time!

Chris said... [Reply]

Ah haaa, there's that smile again! :P

The picture I saw with the scarf Realy caught me off-guard. I didn't think any lady would sport the "SKULLSS!" haha, but like you said, it begins to grow on you and, initially, the more you see it on others, the more you wanna give it a shot for yourself...as you said :P

It works. And take it from a guy, it definitely works~

Kileen said... [Reply]

aww thanks so much! :)

katherine said... [Reply]

I actually love this trend. Probably because my style is a little more funkier than girly. I think you rock this look. For ideas on tying your scarf - try Wendyslookbook video on tying scarves! She has great ideas.

I don't usually go for skulls, but I love that McQueen scarf, too. The first time I saw it I didn't even realize it had skulls on it because it's more subtle when tied. 

You just reminded me of how much I want mustard pants. Why did I ever stop looking for them? Must start the search again right away. 

Muchloveilly said... [Reply]

loooove the scarf!!!! the pattern totally rocks!!! 

Sayaka said... [Reply]

The skulls don't look a bit scary on you :) I agree that sometimes your eyes need to get used to a certain fashion trend, but I actually think the skull scarf looks pretty darn cute on you!

Courtney said... [Reply]

Love the shot of you on the bench! You look so amazing. So so great. I love the scarf! Very eye catching, of course, but who doesn't love that?

I knew I've seen that scarf somewhere. Good thing you had all the celeb pics at the bottom. I'm in between with the design, but i like the contrast of it to girly outfits :)

Frannie Pantz said... [Reply]

Totally into this scarf!  Glad you pulled the trigger!  It is so rock n roll, yet in a delicate scarf!  You look great!  Good call!

Lyddiegal said... [Reply]

I'm with old Kileen on the skull scarf front, though I totally understand how you can hate something but start to see it everywhere and eventually you think "eh, maybe I do like this after all" and then the thing is your new bestie.

But skulls aside, I love the mustard pants and adore the teal pairing.

Cecilia Oviedo said... [Reply]

Omg! I can't believe my eyes, I never thought I'd see you wearing a skulls print! But  totally love it, cause I'm a big fan of skulls! I have a pink one!

Ah, not only is it the mustard pants, but it's with that lovely blue top! One of my favorite color combos ever! I gotta admit I still feel too girly for a skull scarf, maybe someday though :)

Eeek!! I love skull prints! I have a skull bandana and a purple sheer long sleeved shirt with skulls. I want this scarf. LOL.

Jasmine said... [Reply]

I love skull prints!  I have a few of these myself.  Just love it.  :)  My kids get a kick out of it.  :)

JJ said... [Reply]

I love that color combination! Teal and mustard go surprisingly well together. I personally don't think I could pull off the scull scarf, but it looks great on you - I like how you styled it with a fairly basic outfit so it would pop.

Kileen said... [Reply]

thanks!

Really Petite said... [Reply]

I have to be honest- I don't get the whole "skull" thing....but w/that being said- I think you can pull off anything. I love the color combo and I'm looking forward to seeing it on other outfits : )

Polka Princess said... [Reply]

I love the way you've worn that skull scarf! Teal & mustard is one of my fav color combinations of all times!!! :)

rawr!!

AUBS* said... [Reply]

ok here's my advice. 

I think the scarf would be styled better if the ensemble was a tiny bit more edgier OR more casual.  How about pairing it with ripped skinnies, or arm party bracelets that have some rocker chic to it like studs & pyramids, or pair them w/sunglasses.  Doesn't have to be a loud statement, but something else (addt'l jewelry, hairstyle, shoes) to bring out the edgy essence of the scarf.

also, to shorten the scarf, don't wrap it so tightly around your neck.  Let it loosely drape on your chest.  This way, it will also bring the eyes towards your face, instead of blocking off your neck.

Kileen said... [Reply]

ah, great advice!  thanks so much Aubs!  will definitely have to try this next time!

gorgeous outfit!!! love the scarf and mustard pants! I´m a big skull fan as well :D

I like the way you paired the scarf with colorblocking!  It's still feminine but edgy.

Being a fellow girly girl, the scarf didn't appeal to me either.  However, the same thing that happened to you happened to me.  I don't own one yet, but I keep looking at the skull rings???? (What the...??)  

Kileen said... [Reply]

lol, i know, right?!!

hautepinkpretty said... [Reply]

i love scull scarves!! I wear mine (also McQueen inspired) all the time but I love how you styled yours! i usually stick to black/greytones but your colorful outfit is like a breath of fresh air :)

I'm still  not a fan of anything with skull prints on myself, but the scarf looks great on you. I love the color blocking in this outfit too. You always pair such bold colors together and make it look so good Kileen!

The metallic red paint on this model makes it stand apart from the other

The F-91W features the classic seven-segment numerical display on a grey LCD
screen. It's a trusty timepiece: water-resistant, extremely durable and accurate
to within 30 seconds a month. edifice 500
And while it is possible to buy luxury watches at
10,000 times the price that tick with atomic accuracy, doing so for precision
reasons is functionalist logic taken to its absurd extreme.
By contrast, the F-91W's popularity with the young, cool set follows a
converse logic that is no less a form of snobbery. On the one hand, the model is
consistent with a diehard 80s revivalism, the wrist-based equivalent of a pair
of Ray–Bans and a taste for Kraftwerk – and, edifice 500
yes, there is even the requisite
touch of irony in sporting a 20-year-old digital watch alongside an iPhone 4.
But it's more than that: unlike supplicants in the temple of the luxury Swiss
watch, hipsters treat their ability to pull off cheapness as a mark of sartorial
confidence.
What, then, do terrorists see in this watch? With 28 inmates of Guantánamo
found to have had one in their possession, the F-91W and its metallic twin, the
A168WA, were described earlier this week seiko watches
as "the sign of al-Qaida". According to
testimony given by one prisoner, the model was useful because it was
water-resistant: Muslims wash their arms up to their elbows before prayers.
Another, more hapless inmate cited the built-in compass that enabled him to pray
towards Mecca. His interrogators will have smelled a rat: there is no compass in
an F-91W.
