Dig those skulls (Thomas Wylde)

And now for a little fun even the most casual of weekend shoes are getting the fashion treatment. One of the trendiest looks going sure to mark you as a trendista should you sport them this summer are the classic rubber-soled slip-ons from Van's printed in a skull motif. "Pirate chic" skull-and-crossbones accessories are being worn by every A-list celeb from Paris Hilton to Sienna Miller, who get to bypass the waitlists for hot styles from Thomas Wylde and Alexander McQueen. But you heard it here first Van's limited edition skull-print slip-ons are the next red carpet trend!

Trend tip: Not loving the skulls? You can still go casual and trendy with sneakers from Alexander McQueen for Puma or sport shoes from Stella McCartney for Adidas.
