Trend Alert: Snakeskin Accessories
I’m sure you’ve seen the snakeskin print trend taking over stores and blogger’s instagram accounts. It is THE print to have in your closet for fall. It’s similar to the leopard print trend in that snakeskin can be considered a neutral print. However, I think snakeskin is even more versatile. Sometimes leopard prints can be a little too “in-your-face” and tacky for me so I’m loving that snakeskin is a little more subtle, in my opinion.
Even though I’m loving this trend, I’m not going overboard with it. I think you should pick up one accessory in a snakeskin print and be done with it! I decided that I’d go for a pair of snakeskin print booties (a snakeskin print bag is a close second). I was also looking for a snakeskin print that had both so that it would go with a variety of my neutral wardrobe:

My Snakeskin Accessories Picks
I ended up splurging and going for the By Far Snakeskin Boots. Normally, I don’t recommend spending a lot of money on trendier items but since these boots will go will allll of my neutral wardrobe I thought it would be a good investment. I also haven’t seen a lot of lace up snakeskin boots and I feel like it gives this edgier trends a more feminine vibe. I also LOVE By Far shoes and have been wanting to add a pair to my closet forever.
But a very very close second were the Everlane Boss Boots. I alllmost bought these but they were sold out when I was looking and now I think they don’t ship until Dec. 1st. I didn’t really want to wait that long so I opted for the By Far boots. The Everlane boots are definitely more affordable so I’d recommend those if you can wait.
If I were going for a bag my pick would be the STAUD Moon Bag in Snakeskin. I love the minimalist shape and the snakeskin print has nice brown and black tones. I’m also a huge fan of the Staud brand so I’d love to add one of their pieces to my closet someday.
