SNAKE CHARMER

The Jewish Chronicle - JC Magazine - - Accessories -

THE mantra “ev­ery­thing in mod­er­a­tion” ap­plies to most of th­ese trends and def­i­nitely to the snake­skin prints. An­i­mal prints in some form have been pop­u­lar in pre­vi­ous sea­sons, but this spring the snake slith­ers into first place. If you are wear­ing a snake-print out­fit, don’t try to be matchy-matchy. Snake­skin printed shoes or bags look best with a plain out­fit, or one with a snake­skin trim. The eas­i­est way to give a nod to this trend is to buy a beau­ti­ful belt, scarf, a snake ban­gle or a snake rope neck­lace — Marks and Spencer has a fine se­lec­tion. Snake­skin looks classy in soft, sub­tle colours and some of the best shoes and bags can be found at L.K. Ben­nett, which ex­cels at so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Both Fiorelli and Zan­dra Rhodes have stun­ning snake­skin bags, while retro belts from Biba at House of Fraser give a fin­ish­ing touch. The snake­skin look is per­fect for those who don’t nec­es­sar­ily want an ex­u­ber­ant ex­plo­sion of colour, just some­thing to up­date an out­fit. Con­vert­ing fash­ion trends from cat­walk to re­al­ity is al­ways a chal­lenge and as the shops fill up with the lat­est cre­ative com­bos, the car­ni­val of colour will be hard to re­sist.
