Style Swap: Trade In Bland Mammal For Racy Reptile

Some things never really go out of style. In some form or (sometimes questionable) fashion, metallics, for example, will always be in. Another evergreen trend? Animal prints, from big cats (leopards, cheetahs, and tigers) to safari-esque species (zebras and giraffes). Just for this season, let's put a moratorium on mimicking the hides of our furry jungle friends, and swap instead with something a little more edgy and dangerous. Designers—and, respectively, fashion magazines—are boarding the snakeskin train in full force, with everything from swimsuits to sundresses inspiring hisses of the laudatory sort. Feel like you've seen the above D&G Dolce & Gabbana leopard print triangle bikini ($335) a billion times before? Feel right at home hitting the sand in Melissa Odabash's sleek snake-print bikini ($161) instead. Here are some more reptilian pieces you should think about slithering into:

image
BCBGirls Famous snakeskin sandals ($110) fuse strappy gladiator glam, versatile black, white and brown snakeskin, and blazing summer gold— all into one hot look. It doesn't hurt that these platform sandals bear a striking resemblance to the wait list-only Dior pumps rumored to make a Sex and the City movie cameo.

You may not have any desire to wrap your mitts around an actual snake, but you'll find MICHAEL Michael Kors embossed snakeskin clutch ($298) nearly impossible to put down. Kicky tassels and oversized grommets—not to mention the totally rock 'n' roll print—give this little handbag some serious attitude.

image
Want to go all-out, Britney-in-her-heyday, crocodile huntress? Then skip the snaky accessories and go straight for this Karina Grimaldi Karolina halter top in a mint green print ($152). Pair it with some dark jeans for an exotic, sexy look, but make sure to go light on jewelry, bag, and shoes. Taking the snake look overboard could earn you some venomous "what was she thinking?" comments.
