STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Slither In Chic

Style Advice of the Week

Prints have become a prominent aspect of fashion the past couple of months thanks to Prada’s monochromatic printed looks we saw a few months ago on the catwalks of Milan. Today, prints continue to take over the streets in numerous formations, colors and textures. About a year or so ago, snake prints became very popular, dispersing across pants, blazers and blouses alike. After meticulously observing the runway shows over the past few weeks for spring 2013, it is very certain to say that python prints are taking over, this time bigger, bolder and better. A python print should be in every Fashionista’s wardrobe whether it be a colored vest, as seen on the runways of Proenza Schouler, or an asymmetrical skirt displayed by Salvatore Ferragamo. Python is definitely a print to invest in.

This Fashionista added her own unique style and bold beauty into this subtle yet perilous print. The gray tone of her python blouse was the perfect complement to a pair of royal blue trousers. A skinny black belt and strappy black tap shoes tied the look together, making it a great summer to fall transitional look.

When hunting for your own snake print, keep a few things in mind: the scale of the print, the tone of the print, and what you will be pairing it with. When wearing a print, you should keep the remainder of your outfit fairly simple, as you don’t want to be read as a fashion catastrophe. Metallic snake cigarette trousers are a great way to combine trends that can be worn throughout this fall and winter, and even into next spring by simply pairing it with the appropriate color palette. A bright red snake top is a great way to add color to your python. The simple silhouette balances its boldness. For a less audacious approach to a sensational snake print, try a black leather snake print ring clutch. It is sophisticated, chic and simple in the most daring way. However you choose to sport snake print the next few seasons just remember to stay chic, and slither in style with certainty.
