Thanks to designers like Thakoon, Derek Lam and Roberto Cavalli the snake skin print has come back into style.  Almost lost since 2000, snake skin print is filtering back onto the runway, red carpet and into our closets as well.  From maxi dresses to clutches, the snake skin trend is making a splash this year.  Why do we love snake print so much? We think it’s because of its mysterious and sultry vibe. That makes this print the perfect choice for adding an edge to your ensemble.  Snake print may seem a little difficult to pull off, but actually it’s very easy and super chic.

For a subtle snake skin touch try one of the newest trends in the mani pedi department, the snake skin nails. This polish trend is allowing women to have super life like snake skin patterns painted onto their nails. If you’re looking for something just a bit more obvious, then we suggest rocking a snake print clutch. It’s still understated, but the clutch has a bit more wow factor than the nails. For the woman who really wants to rock the trend we recommend a wispy snake skin maxi dress. The light fabric will have movement and flow with you while the snake print will keep you looking ultra-sharp and chic.
