Trend to Try: Make a Sleek Statement With Snakeskin
With the year of the snake finally here, it's time to add a dose of edginess and daring to your wardrobe with snakeskin. Currently taking over runways, this exotic reptile print has sparked a new trend and while we cannot guarantee that wearing these serpentine elements will bring you luck, we can promise that you will definitely make an entrance. We bring you the best snakeskin, from clothes, shoes and bags, to belts for the occasion.
From sensuous cocktail dresses to stunning accessories, this print has seasonless appeal.
For those who think it's too wild a trend to carry off, Barkha Sharma and Sonzal Patel, the designer duo behind the label Barkha 'n' Sonzal, suggest that you "subtly introduce it into your wardrobe by starting with accessories. A wallet, bracelet or belt could be less overpowering. Snakeskin shoes are also a good touch for adding some style to your wardrobe. A snake printed scarf in a bright tone can add some pop to your monochromatic look".
Snakeskin lends itself beautifully to shoes and bags. A neutral hued print goes with practically anything in your wardrobe while a brightly coloured one makes a bold statement. Try pairing snakeskin pumps or a clutch with skinny jeans or trousers and a simple white top for a casual look that will even work for the office. You can also wear a snakeskin top under a blazer or with a pencil skirt or even finish off your look with a python belt for an understated hint of the snakeskin trend. For an evening out, try a mini snakeskin dress with statement accessories and killer heels. Try not to wear more than one snakeprint item at a time way to prevent a case of snakeskin overload. And don't combine it with any other animal print.
