Some fashion trends are particularly polarizing, and one of them is that dramatic look that comes back around every few years, snakeskin.
Whether we are talking a simple print or an actual python handbag or
pair of shoes, you are either a fan of the attention-getting aspects of
rocking something reptile, or you are a little put off by the idea of
wearing something that actual snakes shed every so often.
Even if you are an aficionado of exotic skins, there are some rules to wearing snakeskin.
For instance, it is best kept to shoes, handbags, belts, and other
accessories — it is nearly impossible to pull off reptile-inspired
clothing without looking a little reptilian yourself (unless you are
Naomi Campbell). Snakeskin in bright colors is also best left to the professionals, or at least limited to fairly small doses.
That said, a pair of strappy snakeskin sandals (try saying that three
times fast) or a slim clutch in a modern shape add just the right
amount of striking texture and pattern to a basic ensemble.
Gladiator sandals are so hot right now, and these Stuart Weitzman sandals
are the perfect example of that silhouette with a gray python print
that is as subtle as it is edgy. What’s more, they have enough of a
platform to be fairly comfortable as well, making them a fantastic
summer staple. If you’re strictly a flats girl, these pewter Bernando flats have a stylish slither that’s comfortably casual.
