Exotic Reptile Prints Are A Hot Trend- Get The Look Now


Despite the grand entrance of fur and lace on the season’s runways, it looks like there is another  luxurious rising trend quietly creeping its way into the wardrobes of trendsetters. This winter, reptile prints are set to steal the spotlight and make a guest appearance in cold weather wardrobes. Whether you’re craving exotic detail inspired by the animal kingdom or are simply bored of bundling up in cashmere knits, the season’s snakeskin patterns can revive your style. If you’re ready to be charmed by this trend, here’s how to incorporate reptilian textures and prints into your everyday ensembles.

Casual Chic

Although the edgy and eye-catching aesthetic of snakeskin may scream “party time”, you can easily revamp your favourite reptile inspired pieces for the weekend. Take your sartorial inspiration from the Chloé catwalk, and step out in a sleeveless, fitted snakeskin frock layered over a classic white blouse. To keep your look casual and cool for a day of shopping or errands, add a skinny black scarf and a pair of black leather midi boots.

Work Wear

If snakeskin dresses seem too sultry for a day of business, revamp your nine to five wardrobe with a striking reptile printed accessory (as spotted at Marni). For a stylish yet sophisticated effect, combine a waist-cinching snakeskin belt in a bold green hue with a monochromatic ensemble. To keep up a polished appearance, try pairing a statement belt and matching snakeskin pumps with flared brown trousers and a coordinating sleeveless jacket.


As the clock hits five and fashionistas prepare for an evening of cocktails, it’s officially time to upgrade subtle snakeskin prints into glamorous and decorative pieces. For the after hours, channel the runway look at Miu Miu in a metallic gold and black statement coat with bold black buttons. To showcase your stunning and sleek patterned topper, combine the lavish snakeskin print with oversized floral earrings and contrasting shiny leather loafers. Meanwhile, a funky leather handbag with red snakeskin print detail proves that fierce colour can instantly breathe new life into this creepy, crawly and chic new trend.
