While tiger print and leopard print are going still strong, we're feeling a subtler approach to animal print-and so are many of our sisters in social media. While the 'gram has gone increasingly beige recently with the proliferation of fashion accounts that favor a concise palette of brown, tan, and white-with that came a more creative and textural approach to these hues. Enter: the snakeskin print. On pants, dresses, and tops, it maintains a neutral disposition while adding an interesting pattern. As a bonus, you get all of the appeal of snake with none of the guilt-this is a print after all, not the real deal.
Let's take a walk down snakeskin lane.
Christie of NYCBambi pairs MSGM trousers with a camel coat and white boots for a streamlined look with high impact.
These are the pièce de résistance of the snakeskin movement-the ideal way to leverage your basics into something that makes an entrance. We're especially on board for the knee-height snake boot that the brand Paris, Texas recently reissued after it sold out this fall thanks to super-fan Emily Ratajkowski rocking the boot all over town.

Ladies like Sophia Roe and Tiffany Hsu are mixing prints and pairing their snakeskin with leather pieces for the ultimate luxe experience.
Another chic way to bring some snakeskin into your style game is a full dress or skirt. While statement-making, it's still discrete enough for minimalists to get behind. We love a snakeskin print skirt with a cashmere knit and boots.
Débora Rosa nails the idea, mixing her snake skirt with black separates.
A great silk snakeskin print button-down gives perfect '90s Gucci vibes, just keep the buttons undone at the top-and maybe add in a gold pendant necklace.
Imani wears her Sandy Liang top as a dress, adds white boots, and slays the whole idea. We also love Equipment's classic take on the look.
