As part of the modsquad, creative team for www.moddeals.com, we are constantly talking about trends. This week the hot topic was the skull trend. It all started in 2003 with the late, great Alexander McQueen when he debuted the infamous skull scarf.

We also looked at how skulls are not just for scarves but making a statement in accessories, tops, sweaters, and in different colors.
The modsquad loves the juxtaposition of a skull in pastel or bright. Another new take on the trend is combining a skull print plus a sheer fabric. Here are 3 pieces the modsquad personally picked out for you! These pieces let you play with the skull trend for cheap.
Skull Print Blouse $12.50

How would will you wear the skull trend? The modsquad loves the street style look of an over sized skull sweater with a black skater skirt.
