Slithery Snakesss

While snakeskin has never quite gone out of style, I think it’s safe to say that it does come and go in fashion. For the current season, it has definitely come back with a vengeance. It’s not just on handbags or shoes this time, it’s in every piece of the outfit now. You could essentially deck yourself out in head-to-toe snakeskin if you really chose to, which I hope you don’t.. frankly that’ll make people stop and stare… and not in a good way.

The best way to wear plain natural-colored snakeskin is with neutrals. Go for whites, blacks, grays, browns, cream, olive etc. Use only accessories to really vamp up an outfit, or wear a snakeskin dress with a plain blazer – the look will be classy and chic. Add a leather jacket to snakeskin pants or dress and give it an edge. Or it can be really subdued if you dress it appropriately and it won’t give you the cheetah or leopard print in-your-face vibe. It can even be appropriate for work in small doses.

On the other hand – you will find some colorful snakeskin prints here and there, those are ones you can definitely have fun with. I’ve included a pair of Alice + Olivia platforms that bring color to the skin. These can go with some bold colors and are meant to played with, no toned down looks allowed.

Here are some snakeskin prints that should get you wanting to take on this fashion trend:

Color-Blocked

I know, I know. I’m a little late in sharing the whole color-blocking trend, but better late than never. This trend is reminiscent of the late 80s/early 90s when color-blocking was the in thing. It’s still kinda fun though.

I’ll admit, I like all the color this season, and I did just purchase two tops for color-blocking outfits….

and I’m really eyeing this dress…

Free People Color Block Swing Dress – $148

but beyond some basic color-blocking I may be too chicken. Granted, I will try a few outfits here and there to push my comfort zone, but probably not wholly-embrace the bold outfits.

Do You Wedge?

Every year, around this time, we get bombarded by wedges. Yes, we know – Spring is coming! Bust out the wedges and sandals. But here’s my question: how many people actually do the wedge thing?

I see them at New York Fashion Week, and in print ads but how many people do I see actually rocking the wedge? Very few. I’m 5’2″, so I do understand the need for some height on my shoes, and when boot season ends my choices narrow; however, I still prefer my heels over a wedge in the Spring and Summer.

I have found some cute ones to share though. So if you like to wear them, or just like to look at them, like me, enjoy!
