Trend to Try: Snakeskin

chloe snakeskin dressLet me start by saying that I’m not generally big on prints. Stripes or polka dots are pretty much as adventurous as I get. But a little peek at Chloé’s snakeskin dress in this month’s Real Simple may have changed my mind.

Understated and downright chic, this beauty is way more high society than stripper pole–which is what I think about when I think snakeskin. It’s a print that always seems so cheap to me, but Chloé proves that it doesn’t have to be.

With my interest piqued, I had to poke around to see if there were some other pieces out there that are just as low key. I was totally shocked by how many snakeskin pieces I found that I would wear….

The key to making snakeskin look sophisticated is subtly. If the print isn’t too loud and obnoxious, it adds a rich texture to your look. It’s a neutral with a little extra oomph!

Another thing I’m liking about it is that adding in little pops of this print is a great way to transition your wardrobe to fall once the weather starts getting cooler (although at this point it doesn’t feel like that will ever happen!).
