The skeletal look is in, but you don't have to be bone-thin to make it work. Think nautical with a twist: skull-and-crossbones motifs, edgy jewelry, swashbuckley boots — it's a fashion mutiny! For inspiration, turn to Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, opening Friday. "It's a 180 of the sweet, lovely embellishment that has been 'in' the past couple of years," says In Style fashion director Hal Rubenstein. USA TODAY's asks Rubenstein how to get the pirate look without going overboard.
