The year, and the decade, may be over, but it doesn’t look like animal print is going anywhere anytime soon. This is a trend that followed us into a new decade, and I bet five years from now we will be saying what the HECK were we thinking?!?
Anyway, one of my first outfits of this year/decade is a snakeskin one. And, I’m not wearing just one snakeskin piece, but THREE. Normally I would say that this would be too much of one print, but, I think I pulled this one off.
On top, I’m wearing a brown and black button down snakeskin shirt that I got from Charming Charlie before they went out of business. I love the material of this shirt because it is lightweight and comfortable, and perfect for layering without getting too hot. Speaking of which, under this shirt, I am wearing a strappy bathing suit top from Victoria’s Secret. The v-neck cut of the snakeskin shirt is perfect for letting the bathing suit top peak through, and you would probably never guess that it was a piece made for swimming in.
On the bottom, I’m wearing a pair of black snakeskin leggings from Marshall’s. The print is very subtle, not something you’d be able to see in a dimly lit room. However, if the print was a little louder and/or more colorful, I probably couldn’t have made the double snakeskin look good. The leggings are also black, which matches the top I’m wearing. If the pants were more blue or silvery, I don’t think they would have looked good.
In my opinion, the third piece, this black and silver snakeskin cuff from CATO, doesn’t really match the overall outfit too well, but I still thought it’d be a nice little touch, along with my favorite hat from Altar’d State and my mini black Christian Siriano backpack.
What do you think of this look?
