WHAT TO WEAR NOW: Snake-Print Accessories

We’ve been obsessing over all things serpentine ever since Altuzarra’s Spring/Summer 2011 runway show. In fact, this would be the one instance when we would welcome something to slither out from the dark corners of our closets. The great thing about this print is that snakeskin, like leopard, can complement almost any outfit in small doses. Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate summer’s hottest exotic into your wardrobe.
