The practice of collecting skulls and bones has arguably been around for many hundreds of years. For some, the appeal lies in the historical interest that such artefacts hold; for others, the enjoyment is of a more scientific nature, finding appeal in collecting something that was once a part of the human body. Skulls and bones come in all different shapes and sizes—all telling different stories—meaning there is plenty of scope for collectors. This is a hobby that potentially holds a lot of educational value. Most commonly, human-based skulls are collected, but some people will be interested in animal skulls and bones too.

But it's not just the collecting of actual bones and skulls that's popular. Merchandise carrying this theme has consistently been popular for decades. No doubt you have come across a shirt with a flaming skull, or a biker's jacket bearing a skeletal image. When the designs are in this context, they're often tapping into a fantasy/horror element, a genre that heavily uses skulls and skeletal imagery. The heavy metal music genre favors this type of imagery as well. People also like to collect skull models—some, a realistic representation of a skull—others, a stylized, fantastical version.

One area where skull designs are especially popular is within the gothic community. Those that practice the gothic style will very likely be wearing an item of clothing or accessory (such as a choker) baring a skull design. This fits in with the dark style they're trying to replicate. Any kind of film, book or musical production that has gothic leanings will almost certainly feature the use of skulls in some context

Skull Clothing Designs

As touched on, clothing is a big area for bone and skull-themed designs. In men’s clothing, t-shirts and casual button shirts are full of this style. The black-and-white flowery skull look is popular with men, such as this 3D interpretation of the classic style from Skull Flow:

The black-and-white background may have a tinge of color for a modern twist. You can also get vibrant, colorful shirts, often in a mix of bright purple, green and orange. Photorealistic and “sketched” skull designs are ever-popular, but cartoony designs are as well.

In men’s clothing, you will also find similar designs on jackets, particularly leather ones, as well as hoodies. It’s not so common, but jeans can feature some kind of skull design too—usually in a subtle way—such as a skull where the stud would be on the pockets. Often a jacket will have one large, impressive skull on the back.

The market for women’s skull-themed clothes may be smaller than the men’s one, but it’s growing. Everything mentioned in the men's category exists in a female version. As well as all of the above, dresses decorated with skull prints can be worn as part of a cute outfit, or complement a more gothic style. This design can be found on Skull Flow, which sells a great range of skull-based merchandise.

If you're looking for women’s jeans or t-shirts with a skull design, they will often be similar to the male designs, but if you'd like a feminine twist, there are many options, for example a glittery skull, or a pink one. These days, you can find all sorts of images printed on leggings—including skull designs.

It puts a colorful, quirky spin on things.

Skull Jewlry Designs

A ring that's fashioned into a skull, often in silver or gold, is a popular choice. You can also buy necklaces that have a single skull in the middle, in the same way a bracelet would, or what about a beaded necklace or bracelet that's made up of lots of mini skulls? Some like to wear earrings that are shaped like a skull, again these are often in silver, but you can find other styles. Take a look at these unique earrings that successfully merge butterflies with skulls! You can pick up a pair from Skull Flow

When it comes to skull watches, you should find something you like.  Instead of just having a picture on the watch face, you could have a skull-shaped cover that lifts up to reveal the watch face. Like everything featured in this article, you can go subtle with the skull design, or go bold. Like all genres, there is scope for crossover, for example, how about a steampunk twist in stunning gold?:

Skull Accessories

Skull caps are a timeless classic. They add a casual element to an outfit, so perhaps would not suit a more serious gothic look, but would be better suited to a more casual outfit. They have their practical use too; you can wear them on a hot day or on holiday, perhaps to go with that flaming-skull shirt! You don’t always have to go with the traditional black-and-white look of a skull cap; you could add a splash of color with this red option from Skull Flow, although there's also a more understated black version: As you can see, the skull design is embellished to stand out even further.

Skull sun glasses
Those looking to carry on their theme to the eyes can don a pair of sunglasses with skulls or bones on the frame. These designs will often be in black and white, but not always. Here is a quirky example from Skull Flow:

These have cat-eye lenses in cool blue, and there is a skull pattern along the sides. The skulls in the corner of the lenses are a nice touch as well.

It's common to just have a plain, black wallet, but why not have something a bit edgier with skulls or bones encrusted on it, perhaps in silver or gold, instead? Belts are an excellent way to match an accessory to a t-shirt or jacket. The middle of a belt can have a large skull attached, perhaps in chrome, or with a silver effect. Take, for example, this awesome Skull Demon Snake Bone design, available from Skull Flow:

Its creative skull embellishment looks very effective on a plain leather belt. If you don’t find a belt that matches what you're after, you could purchase a plain one and search online for a skull or bones buckle that you like and attach it yourself.

During winter you could add a thick skull-decorated scarf to your outfit. Or for warmer times, buy a thin scarf, such as a stylistic Day of the Dead scarf. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to ties. You could opt for a flaming skull or, again, go for the Day of the Dead look. And it's not just neckties; Bowties are perfect if you're going to a Halloween fancy dress. You'll be the talk of the ball!

Gloves look fantastic with little skull or bone details on the knuckles or backs of the gloves. If you're a biker, what about a skull-and-bones helmet to go with your jacket? Or for the gothic look, a great way to add a bit if detail is with a skull choker. These accessories can be very striking—a great way to show off the skull-and-bones look.
