Slither into the Snakeskin Trend

Posted on December 14 2018

   

Animal prints are neutrals as far as we’re concerned. They go with everything and work with every color. But one print in particular is standing out as a front-runner this fall, and no, it’s not leopard. Say hello to snakeskin. From bags and boots to leggings accessories, this pattern is slithering its way into our winter wardrobe. A natural evolution from fashion’s fixation with leopard print, snakeskin – faux, of course – has reared its reptilian head to become this season’s statement-making favorite.

So, what is the best way to wear it? Well, like most trends it comes down to personal preference and how much of a statement you’re willing to make. If your style is already pretty bold then don’t be afraid to invest in pieces like a oversized snake print shirt or a midi skirt.

For the less daring, an ankle boot will give even the most lack lustre ensemble a punchy python finish, while those who fall in the overly cautious camp should look to finer details like belts and bags.

There's no better time to show off your wild side.
