If you don’t already know it’s the year of the snake according to the Chinese zodiac calendar and it’s fast becoming the year of the snake in fashion too.
Animal prints have been popping up all over this fashion season, both on and off the catwalk. As well as the usual leopard print snake skin is having a big moment remember Burberry Prorsum’s snakeskin pencil skirt from their LFW collection?
It’s not only high fashion which is doing snake print big, high street heavyweights such as Nike are into the print too. Nike released a whole collection entitled Year of the Snake which featured some of their best loved styles given a snakeskin makeover. The stars are loving the print as well, rapper Ace Hood can be seen wearing a snakeskin hoody in his new Bugatti video (check it out on the Polihop Pinterest page).
You have to remember with prints a little goes a long way, so don’t go head to toe or mix and match different animal prints.
