We don’t really need clocks in our homes or offices these days do we? But that doesn’t mean that they are no longer made, no longer popular or in demand.

Can Halloween be stylish?
We’ve pondered this question. I have to say that as far as style is concerned, this is my least favorite event. I love Halloween colors – the black and orange – but so many of the decor items and clothing are, well, tacky to say the least. If you’re like me, you’ll want to get into the spirit of things (mild pun there) but you don’t want to dress up as a silly skeleton or a buxom serving wench. (Or do you? If so, scroll down!) So, what can we wear that’s sinisterly spooky and stylish too? Here are a few ideas.
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? Prices start at under $200 and these are jewelry items that are classics of the future. See how beautifully they are engrave on the inside of every bracelet – there’s no doubt that these are the real thing.
Selected McQueen accessories
When Alexander McQueen first introduced his signature skull products, they immediately became ‘must-have’ items for celebrities everywhere. The primitive skulls, combined with today’s luxury materials, seemed to strike a chord with the most stylish people in the fashion world. The McQueen company still produce these and they have become true classics.
Here at Tastes Magazine, there are some designers who we feel are essential. Everyone, for example, should have a Marimekko items in their home. No decor is quite complete without at least one classic Mid Century Modern iconic piece.
And it’s the same with our wardrobe – we believe that everyone should have one item by Alexander McQueen at the very least.
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.
We love the iconic scarves and the skull jewelry but there’s so much more to choose from – from bags to sunglasses, from umbrellas to belts. Use the link below or click an image to see the full collection.
