Let's pause for a second and talk about a trend that has slowly been gaining traction over the years and has now officially taken over the fashion world. The 2019 snakeskin trend (or snake print, should I say — we love animals and don't want their skin!) has slithered its way straight onto the racks and shelves of your favorite clothing stores, and I think it's safe to say this print has staked its claim. It's nested, and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.
This is absolutely great news for both your and my wardrobe for a myriad of reasons. First, this print can easily still be classified as a neutral, for the most part. The typical snakeskin color palette is a mix of greys or browns, meaning it'll pretty much go with anything else you might be wearing. Second, it's a stylish yet efficient way to break up an all-black outfit — something I absolutely default to, not only in the winter, but all the damn time. Third, and this might sound vain of me but IDRC, it's an incredibly chic print that instantly elevates or dresses up any outfit. IMHO, it's hard to go wrong with a snake print.
In addition to allllllll that good stuff, the print works in a variety of mediums, meaning you can seamlessly incorporate it into a look as a dress, top, bottom, shoe, or general accessory. Needless to say, snakeskin is oh-so-versatile. However, if you're a bit hesitant or curious as to what pieces you might want to incorporate into your OOTD — understandable, as it seems we were all just getting comfy with leopard print — I've rounded up some prime snake print items (all faux, of course) below that'll have you sliding into your wallet, so these can slither into your closet. You can thank me later.
