Charming in snake! FEMAIL picks out the best buys for embracing fashion’s favourite print this season
- Emily Monckton picked a selection of items for embracing the snakeprint trend
- She says scaley print started on Gucci and Victoria Beckham’s recent catwalks
- British style expert revealed High Street stores offering timeless collections
Finally, snakeprint is wearable! The pattern — notoriously hard to style and often limited to accessories — can now be seen on everything from asymmetric skirts to ruffled blouses.
Thanks to Italian fashion house Gucci’s snake-effect dress, and Victoria Beckham’s pleated skirt seen recently on catwalks, the High Street is spilling over with the scaley print this season.
Worried the trend may leave you looking ‘mutton-dressed-as-lamb’? Panic not. Brands such as Mango and Jigsaw have designed their collections with timeless style in mind. Feeling adventurous? Treat yourself to a statement trenchcoat. Heading to work? Try out a snake neckerchief.
