In the year of the return of wild and statement animal print trends, snake print is making a serious comeback. Snake print dresses are a key look for the season and are being paired with anything from biker leather to casual denim and athleisure, making it not only ultra-cool but accessible for everyone.
There are some key ways to rock the snake print dress trend and we’ve broken them down, right here.
The Shirt Dress
When it comes to of-the-moment, on-trend prints, what’s better than to incorporate them into a classic, trusted style. The shirtdress has long since been a go-to piece in every woman’s wardrobe, but this season, we’re seeing a serious revival of the look and it’s all because of the snake print trend. Snake print shirtdresses are the elusive piece that you never knew you needed. Shockingly easy to style, versatile enough to dress up and down for every occasion and oh-so-chic. If you’re only buying one snake print dress this season, make it a shirtdress.
Dress It Up for Girls Night Out
Snake print dresses are fabulous styled casually with boots and sneakers, but throw on some sky-scraping heels and you’ll never turn back. The print teams like a dream with over-the-top jewellery, so add your boldest, crystal earrings or a sparkling statement necklace and all you need is a clashing snake print clutch to complete the look.
Team It with Leather for The Ultimate Fashion Edge
Snake print dresses have one ultimate partner in crime; leather. The two go hand in hand like peaches and cream, resulting in an elegant, yet edgy head to toe look. Pair statement snake print dresses with flat Chelsea ankle boots or opt for studs and buckles, with a nod to Givenchy, and simply add a classic black leather jacket to complete this striking look.
It’s not just leather accessories that pair perfectly with the ultimate snake print dress. Mix up your look and team a loose fit, snakeskin dress with patent leather-effect trousers for a sultry look that’s sure to get you noticed. This works best with dresses with slits or buttons down the front, letting you create your own front slit. Best teamed with heels, just add barely-there sandals in nude and layers of gold jewellery.
Add Metallic Accessories
An instant update for a neutral snakeskin dress is the addition of some seriously good, on-trend metallic accessories. Whether you prefer gold, sparkling silver or the ever-popular rose gold effect, every shade of metallic works with snake print. Bringing out the neutrals tones in a pop of brightness, a metallic gold clutch combines throw back 80’s style with on-trend millennial vibes to create the perfect photo-worthy, street-style look.
Snake print dresses have evolved from the runway to the high street and now it’s the hottest look, waiting to become the star of every girl’s wardrobe. With styles for every occasion and the ability to dress them up or keep them casual, this versatile print is moving straight to the top of our shopping lists.
