Who would have thought that a creature that sends shivers down our spines could inspire such beautiful clothing? When we see snakes, chances are we will run the other way. But when we see snakeskin print, we can’t help but get closer to it!
What is it about snakeskin that is so intriguing? We’re betting it’s the texture it adds to any outfit. Yes, you can’t feel the texture on some prints, but the eye can see it. Its abstract pattern definitely attracts attention – especially if it is placed on pants or a top. If the snakeprint has neutral tones, we prefer pairing it with bright accessories like blogger above. It’s that no-effort chic look.
However, if the print has multiple colors or is bright, we suggest using solids.
Unlike a loud pant or top, snakeskin shoes and accessories provide a more subtle, yet very rich feel. Although we do admit, we’ve seen our share of really loud snakeskin shoes. Just check out these cowboy boots. They’re totally “look at me” shoes, but we LOVE them.
We provided our girls with three options: the first is that more subtle snakeskin look. Our burgundy snakeskin leggings are a perfect match for the girl who is a little bit afraid of snake.
The others – they’re a little bit more out there. They’re for the girl who wants to have some fun and stand out in the crowd.
