Stay warm in style
I don’t know about you but I’ve always found that cold weather clothes are often far more stylish than warm weather outfits. I love the richer fabrics and somehow designers seem to make the most of winter clothing in the most stylish ways. The winter months are a great excuse to show your fashion style.

Skull bangles from Alexander McQueen
I recently featured McQueen’s stunning skull scarves and really wanted to include these pieces but I think that they deserve their own page. Aren’t they simply gorgeous?

See how beautifully they are engrave on the inside of every bracelet – there’s no doubt that these are the real thing.

The lucky thing is that there is a full range of goods that come from this design house and a McQueen accessory will always add that certain something to an outfit or ensemble.
