Real vs. Steal – Alexander McQueen Skull Print Silk Chiffon Scarf

Posting a steal find for an Alexander McQueen item always makes me a little sad because I feel very strongly about the brand and the designer and would like to be able to support it by buying the real deal, however my budget says otherwise. McQueen’s iconic skull print scarves have been around for a while now and it didn’t take long before they became a celebrity staple. And who can blame them really? The scarves, which are now available in a million color combinations, are absolutely fabulous; scary skulls printed on delicate silk? Gotta love the contradiction. What’s not to love though? The price of almost $300, obviously.

GoJane Sheer Skull Print Scarf

UPDATE (11/17/2012): Found another Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-like in black/red at GoJane. This one doesn’t seem quite as valuable (the StyleInch scarves below are made of chiffon while this seems to be a cotton blend), but at $8.10 it might be a great steal to fulfill your skull print accessory needs. Also, don’t forget to use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

StyleInch Skull Print Chiffon Scarf

While doing my daily browsing on Amazon I discovered that StyleInch have an incredibly similar pair of skull print chiffon scarves which they are selling for $19.99; a fraction of the original’s price. Sure, you can’t expect the same quality, but if you’re looking for inexpensive Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-likes, this is the place to go. And the best part? The scarves are available in an array of different colors like blue, grey, green, pink and many more. I’ve bought these scarves myself in 3 colors and love them! They’re super soft and definitely worth the price! Probably gonna order all the other colors as well.
