Style Tip Thursday : Get Comfortable In Skin

Thursday, December 8, 2011

With trendy leopard's induction into the classic hall of fame, snakeskin has proved to be a worthy successor.  At the fall 2011 Paris shows, Chloe and Valentino sent python prints down the runway in neutral and bold hues.  Over in Milan, the Prada girls paraded down the runway with large python clutches pressed tightly against their chests.  The seductively charming print has found itself on everything from clothing to accessories.  Here are a few tips on how to get a grip on this slippery trend.

 Play It Safe 

Say Yes to The Dress -  Invest in a colorful snakeskin dress.  Don't believe me? Just check out Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga. Wear your dress with solid pumps and accessories.

Coordinate -  Accessorize with a matching snakeskin handbag and shoes. Matching your accessories maybe archaic, but it's an infallible styling tip.

 For the Chic 

A Little Goes A Long Way -  For a polished look, take cue from Chanel Iman and Prada. Keep it basic--ear all black and let the snake do all of the hissing.

 Be Bold 

Skin to Skin -  Not afraid to make a statement?  Follow in Jennifer Lopez's footsteps and pair your snakeskin printed dress with coordinating footwear for maximum impact.

Print on Print - Mixing snakeskin pieces with other prints can be tricky, but Chloe pulls it off for Fall 2011.  Pair a snakeskin printed top or bottom with a print containing similar hues.
