Happy Monday! We’re just back from Aruba and I can’t wait to share everything with you. I’m working on that blog post as you read this one. Thankfully, we got home in time to watch #GOT (Game of Thrones) last night. Those of you that know me, know that calling me on Sunday night is a no – no! On to today’s subject… It’s no secret that snakeskin print has slithered its way into this season’s top trends. At first I was a bit hesitant to dive into wearing snakeskin, but I actually have found it looks so chic! I’m pictured here wearing this white snakeskin denim jacket over a basic tee with classic denim. It’s simple but on-trend. Snake print may seem bold to some, so that’s why I wanted to share my favorite ways that you can easily incorporate it into your closet this Spring!
My first tip is to keep your outfit simple and classic when wearing snake print. You can do this by wearing a snakeskin jacket over a plain tee like I did here. Or you can go for a classy mock neck top paired with some black jeans and pumps. Snakeskin is a great way to break up an all black outfit with texture. It instantly elevates any look!
Secondly, I suggest incorporating it more subtly with fun accessories like bags, shoes and even hair accessories. Even a snakeskin belt cinched at the waist over a dress would be cute and subtle. Personally, I love these white sneakers with snakeskin detailing. They are so easy to wear with anything, just like these snakeskin sandals are as well. I wear these sandals all the time to add something fun to my outfit!
Something I really love about snakeskin is that you can wear it both casually and for nicer occasions. Try a snake print tee with white jeans on the weekend. Wear snakeskin trousers with a button down or snakeskin loafers with classic black pants to work. Then put on a pretty python print dress or skirt for a date night or party! It truly is such a versatile pattern that’s always elegant.
Lastly just remember that like leopard print, snakeskin can be classified as a neutral most of the time. It’s the perfect way to wear neutral colors but still look interesting. There’s several bright and bold snake prints out there, but its typically offered in a neutral color palette of blacks, whites, grays, and browns. This means it will pretty much go with just about anything!
I’ve linked lots of animal print pieces below to help you try this trend. Whether you choose to wear full head-to-toe snakeskin or add touches of it into your outfits, you really can’t go wrong!
