With that in mind, today, we wanted to show you how to wear one of our favorite animal-prints: snakeskin.
Whether you’re all about the snakeskin-print, or it’s a trend that you’re still a little uncertain of, we’ve got tips that will help you rock this trend with total and complete confidence.

As with most trends, if you’re uncertain about it, we always suggest incorporating the trend slowly into your everyday wardrobe. There’s no need to invest in a full snakeskin jumpsuit in order to be on trend for the season.
Instead, we recommend starting simply with a pop of snakeskin. Perhaps it’s a simple snakeskin belt, or maybe it’s something even simpler like the cuffs of a blouse being done in snakeskin.
Wear snakeskin in whatever way feels most natural to you, and you’ll be pulling off this trend in no time. Because, trust us, when it comes to really nailing a trend, it’s all about your confidence.
Go All Out

But hey, maybe you’re someone who has no reservations about wearing snakeskin.
If this is you, you’re in luck, because with the popularity of animal-print only growing, you can easily go bold with this print and not look ridiculous.
A dress in snakeskin? Perfect.
A pair of pants in snakeskin? Yes, please!
Even that full snakeskin-print jumpsuit is totally appropriate.
Bottom line: whether you go big or small with your addition of snakeskin into your wardrobe, it’s a trend that works for everyone.
Try Experimenting With Different Colors

You might be inclined to gravitate towards snakeskin that is relatively neutral in color.
While neutral colors always tend to be easier to wear, we also want to open you up to trying out snakeskin-print in bold and exciting colors, like a deep-red or even a pretty- pink for spring.
In particular, with Living Coral being the Pantone Color of The Year, we can only imagine how great a pop of coral snakeskin would look in an outfit.
Experiment with colorful snakeskin, and we’ve got a feeling you’ll be rewarded.
Wear Your Snakeskin As A Neutral

Whether you’re into the snakeskin print trend or not, this tip can apply to any animal-print: wear animal-print like a neutral.
While you might view animal-print as something bold and experimental, when you wear your animal-print like it’s a neutral, there’s a good chance you’ll come up with some bold and exciting looks.
Simply ensure that you have some neutral colored snakeskin in your wardrobe, and you can wear your snakeskin with anything and everything in your wardrobe.
