Animal prints have been circulating the fashion front for a while now, but a new skin has taken over the ever-popular leopard. Snakeskin is the new “it” pattern. From jeans to bags to jewelry, snakeskin will be a fall staple for all Fashionistas.
With patterned pants stealing the spotlight as summer’s hottest trend, snakeskin is the perfect pattern to transition from summer to the cooler temperatures of fall. This Fashionista picked up these Current Elliott jeans in olive: the perfect hue for fall. These can be simply worn with a button-down or chunky knit sweater. This Fashionista pairs her jeans with a very style-savvy peplum top. Because her jeans are busy and demand attention from the rest of her outfit, she was right to pair them with a white top. Any neutral would look good with these pants. And of course, snakeskin pants can be dressed up easily with booties and a simple silk top or blazer for a night out. Snakeskin is also a great pattern for either a blouse or dress. This Lovers + Friends dress is a sassy alternative to snakeskin jeans.
This runway season snakeskin made an impression on designers such as Roberto Cavalli and Gucci. Not only is snakeskin being worn, it has continued to be a popular print for bags and accessories as well. I recently acquired this black and grey snakeskin clutch from Urban Expressions which adds the right amount of trendy to any outfit I will be wearing this fall. If this pattern in clothes is too trendy for you, I would highly recommend investing in a snakeskin accessory. It can add that extra something to a previously bland outfit. Snakeskin will not go out of style as a handbag print for a long time and is a very savvy purchase.
