Class to Night Out: Skull Graphic Top


Tops: 1, 2, 3

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

So long, Hot Topic: Skull graphics aren’t just for angsty middle schoolers anymore. Immortalized by designers like Alexander McQueen, these edgy little guys are popping up everywhere this season, from dainty bangles to silky scarves to elbow patches. If your style is typically soft and feminine, the right skull-embellished piece can add fashion-forward contrast and breathe life into your wardrobe.

Ready to try out the trend? This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a skull graphic top for both a day of class and a night out.

Skull Print Top: Class

Give your fierce top a feminine vibe by layering it under a bright coral blazer, and add a gold collar necklace for extra ladylike flair. Then add simple dark wash jeggings and nude ballet flats for a simple daytime look. Grab a pretty white shoulder bag with weaved detailing for your books. Complete the look with ultra-girly heart-shaped studs.

Skull Print Top: Night Out

Reach rockstar potential with your night look by pairing your top with edgy black skinny jeans, softening the ensemble with a pearl and crystal-embellished bangle. Then add girly details like a quilted fuchsia bag and black floral studs to create killer contrast. Take the outfit to the next level with a pair of bright mint green pumps.

    interesting way how you styled the class outfit! you must have very girly style (nothing wrong with that!) if i was to wear it to class i’d probably play up the punky vibe – dark wash skinnies, motorcycle boots, an army green parka or a leather jacket, with tousled hair and light make up

    Haha, I have a pretty eclectic range of things in my closet, I just really love adding punk touches to super girly outfits. Your outfit idea sounds really cute too!

    I loved both looks! Plus, both are pants for the day/night ensembles.
