While we will never throw shade at our beloved leopard print, it’s snakeskin that’s in the spotlight this season. Whether you’re a hardcore fan of the print or just want to dip your toes in the water, it can be tricky to wear this trend without going overboard.
But fear not, we’re here to help. Here are some tips and tricks for wearing the season’s hottest trend: snakeskin.
Go All In
If your fashion philosophy is “go big or go home”, this tip is for you. Try picking up a two-piece (also known as ‘co-ord’) set in snakeskin and pairing it with a neutral jacket (Like our Women’s Washed Satin Boyfriend Jacket in black). The neutral jacket will help keep the outfit from being just a little too much while still being on trend. Roll up the sleeves for an extra pop of print.
If you’re looking to “go big or go home” in an even bigger way, this trend is right up your alley. For the truly adventurous, layer a snake-print t-shirt, jumpsuit, and trench coat to create the ultimate snakeskin outfit. Just so the snakes don’t mistake you for one of their own, pair with neutral shoes and dainty jewelry. But hey, who are we to tell you what to pair with this outfit! If you’re feeling loud jewelry, go for it!
If you’re in-between going all in and keeping it light, try adding a snakeskin top and/or bottom or dress to your spring/summer wardrobe. For tops, try grabbing a sleek chiffon blouse in this print or even a bodysuit or crop top. Pair with distressed jeans or sleek black pants depending on the event. For bottoms, try wearing a neutral top with a pair of snakeskin pants. Or, for warmer weather, switch to a skirt or shorts. Dresses are another way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. Wear over a graphic tee and Vans for a grunge look. For the office, try a wrap or sheath dress paired with neutral heels.
Or Keep It Light
If your fashion philosophy is more “minimalism with a pop of print”, this one is for you. Try adding snakeskin accessories to your wardrobe. A snakeskin bag is the perfect accessory to start with if you’re looking to dip your toes in the sand. Try pairing it with all-white (or all-black) ensemble for a minimalist yet trendy outfit.
For the Shoe Lover
Piggy-backing on the accessory tip, try adding a pair of snakeskin pumps to your spring/summer wardrobe. If you’re more of a sneaker fan, try incorporating a pair of fashion sneakers in the print for a fresh take on your classic sneaker. Pair sneakers with a neutral dress and your favorite Classic Iconic Racer jacket. Or, grab some pumps and throw on a pair of distressed jeans and your favorite graphic tee or solid bodysuit for a pop of flair.
Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, everyone can incorporate this season’s “it” print into their wardrobe.
