Spring Trends. Showing Some Skins.

February 11, 2010 • Fashion


Slither into one of Spring's hottest trends, slinky and sultry snakeskin. These modern versions of the fun faux python skins are a modern, more refined take on the old school images of biker bars and tattoo parlors. To tone down the extreme rocker look, simply pair the pattern with one of these hip yet elegant shapes. A ladylike handbag or clutch in a neutral tone makes a standout statement, especially when decked out with bling. Platform pumps boasting both patent and pattern can vamp up any sweet ensemble. And a buttery soft leather jacket with a muted snakeskin print is the epitome of understated rocker chic. The best advice to not being swallowed whole by this man-eating print? Limit it to one article of clothing if it carries a lot of print, like the dress, leggings, or tank. Keep the look minimal and effortless and you may just turn into a man-eater yourself.
