5 Non-Creepy Ways To Wear The Snake Print Trend

The snake print trend has slithered onto the fashion scene this fall. How do you feel about it?

If you hate snakes, you might not be too keen on this edgy animal print look, but there are many ways to wear snake print without looking like a python ready to strike!

I was on the fence about snake print, but I have found a few ways to wear it that work for me, like this blue snake print blouse from NYDJ that I like to pair with black jeans.

Remember, you only need a touch to appear on-trend. Here are five stylish, non-creepy ways to wear the snakeskin print trend.

Snakeskin Print - black Cardigan


1. Keep Your Outfit Classic

The best way to wear snake print and look chic, not slimy, is to opt for a classic look. For example, a conservative cardigan with clean lines and minimal detail in a python print paired with a white blouse and dark-wash bootcut jeans is classic but not boring.

The dark wash jeans are key here because they make the outfit more elegant. Finish the outfit with a signature black tote and sleek black leather booties. Dark accessories also keep the look more low-key, making the sweater stand out.

2. Wear a Snake Print Bootie or Accessory

Accessories are the best way to try out a trend when you are unsure if something is your style.

A touch of snake print like a snakeskin bootie or snakeskin piping on your purse is all you need to look modern.

This snakeskin bootie is considered neutral, so it works with everything.


Snake Print - Circle Bag

This Python circle bag is unique. Pair it with jeans and a cream-colored sweater so the bag stands out. I’ve added some fabulous corduroy booties to bring more texture to the outfit.

3. Try Snakeskin in Modern Colors

Have you noticed there are different colors of snake print? As a general rule of thumb,  warm-toned gals with golden or peachy skin and brown or gold hair look best in brown and beige python shades,  while cool-toned brunettes or blondes with more pinkish complexions and ash hair suit a more black/gray snake print.

If you want to wear a less aggressive-looking snake print, you can find some interesting color combinations.  For example: this pretty satin skirt. Brown, pink, cream, and lime green are a modern, fun mix and give this outfit a creative look.

Pair this skirt with a cream turtleneck, clear mules, and fine hoop earrings to feminize the snake print look. A warm brown bucket bag completes this chic fall outfit.

3. Snake Print Tops and Blouses are no Risk

One reason you may shy away from snake print is that it can be quite masculine, but this fall, you will find many snakeskin print tops that are feminine and pretty.

To make an outfit look cool and sophisticated, try a soft, flowy snakeskin print blouse with a pair of black skinny jeans or pants.

Pair the jeans with modern flat mules and an elegant over-the-shoulder bag to look sophisticated.

5. Don’t Mix Tight and Snake Print

If you are wearing a body-hugging snakeskin dress, you need to think carefully about what this communicates. And if the dress is also short or low cut, watch out. This sends the wrong message!  Snake print is by its nature dark and sexy, so if you don’t want to look threatening, especially by day, be careful choosing the style of your snakeskin print dress.

This sophisticated snake-print shirtdress is conservative and perfect for daytime wear. To look professional, team it up with sleek black suede boots and a sporty black bag.

  1. I have a classic button-front silk blouse in a subdued taupe/gray snakeskin print. It was in the donation bag, But maybe I’ll hang on to it for the fall. You’ve given me some ideas on how to style it for my more casual workplace.

  2. I enjoyed this post and ordered the sweater. Currently, I have a great pair of snakeskin pumps and a cool duster thing; the shirt I can wear to the office. Thanks for the looks

  3. While leopard or cheetah print seems to never go out of style, snakeskin does, so I don’t want to spend much money. However, I tried to get in on this trend while it lasted, so I bought a non-expensive top from Target. It’s a snakeskin print tee with flutter sleeves with undertones of blush—the great post-Deborah.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
