Fall Trend Alert: Snakeskin fix

Zara Courts

Cala Python Clutches

Chloe RTW Fall Winter 2011

Prada RTW Fall Winter 2011

If leopard print was all over catwalks last fall, snakeskin is the print du jour. Prada pioneered the trend with snakeskin coats and boots (may I say - not my favourite items this season!). So if you must inject reptilian vibe into your wardrobe, you could go for a classic snakeskin clutch. I'm in love with Cala python clutches. They come in variety of colors and two sizes: PM and slightly larger GM. At £150 and £185, think they are both sensible investments and won't go out of style after this mad reptilian season :). Oh and I'm hearting the above gorgeous courts by Zara! I would wear them with monochrome black outfit.

I could also see some appeal in snakeskin print 70s frocks and blouses, as seen in Chloe Fall/Winter collection. Marks and Spencer stocks gorgeous Chloe-inspired silk dress.

My overall advice: opt for snakeskin handbags and shoes - stay away from anything snakeskin that makes you look like you belong on the set of Austin Powers :)
