Snakeskin Is The New Leopard

Snakeskin Is The New Leopard


When it comes to snakeskin, there’s a fine line between fabulous and tacky. Here are a few tips on how to wear this trend:

When mixing and matching this hot trend, be wary of acid colours – unless it’s a trim or a small one-piece like a belt. Stick to solid jewel tones like jade, burgundy or navy.

A great (and bold) way of taking this trend to the next level is by rocking snakeskin from head to toe. A beautiful snakeskin blouse paired with a leather pencil skirt with snakeskin detail and über-high snakeskin heels keeps the look tonal and stylish.

Feeling a bit timid about this exotic trend? Simply dress up your LBD with a bold and bright skinny snakeskin belt, a multi-coloured snakeskin envelope clutch and black snakeskin heels.
