Slowly but surely, the snakeskin trend has found its way from the runways to the racks. Not only can this print be considered a neutral—making it pairable with almost everything—but it is the simplest way to take a minimal outfit to a whole new level. Here are a few chic ways to sport the serpent skin in everyday wear.
Give your classic little black dress a day off and opt for this bold, yet neutral toned snake-print mini. Reminiscent of a dress you may have owned in the nineties, this look is modernized with ribbon straps and a low scoop neck.

While it may seem like an understated hint of reptile print, don’t be surprised when this piece catches everyone’s attention. Think of a vintage purse, reimagined. The push-lock closure and sleek silhouette play on a classic style while the infusion of a delicate snake print complements the black leather. Add in gold chain straps and you have a sophisticated, yet standout accessory.
Arguably, one of the simplest ways to incorporate snake skin into an everyday outfit, these boots are a must for anyone looking to incorporate this trend into their look. A mod ankle boot adorned with the serpent pattern adds an edgy flair that can help break up an otherwise monotonous outfit. The pointed toe and chunky heel create a flattering, yet wearable shape that work with everything from denim jeans to fitted dresses.
Due to the mild hues of white, grey and brown that encompass the majority of snake prints, it isn’t difficult to make the trend the main focus of your ensemble rather than a supporting detail. Easy on the eyes and perfect for everyday wear, this silk blouse with a pleated bodice combines sophistication with urban chic.
