Out of all the millions of prints and fabrics, python snake skin is by far my favorite. I’ve been a fan ever since I got my first pair of reptilian skin booties. There is just something about the texture and the modern manipulations with color and metallics that I adore. Snake prints usually stay in the spring season, recently it has become a second skin for the winter months.
While your first choice for choosing outerwear may not be the ones with the biggest print or boldest colors it’s always good to have one statement outerwear piece. This Fashionista I spotted clearly likes making a printed impression bundled up in this python snake puffer jacket. The Fashionista finished this look off with some dark denim jeans and navy blue Uggs. This outfit exudes comfort which is the number one rule when you are spending long hours in the fashion building. But this look goes to show you how a statement outerwear piece can transform a look.
Python snake skin has no seasonal boundaries; it looks impeccable on accessories both for spring and winter. Just another reason to love it. It’s an instant update to your look creating a more exotic and luxe feel. Python snake skin has been on the fashion trend timeline since the ’60s and keeps emerging edgier and more vibrant. Designers like Gucci and Erdem in their recent spring collections infused the textured skin with patchwork of colors like aqua and yellow. I’m seriously gushing over all the modern approaches, especially on outerwear; it’s certainly a fresh take from handbags and footwear.
