We’ve seen leopard, tiger and zebra prints doing the rounds but snake print is taking the crown this fashion month.
Fashion month is still in full swing, and while we look to the runways for inspiration for Autumn/Winter 19, we’re also looking to the street stylers to inspire our outfits now. We’ve seen top-to-toe beige, and more shades of green than we can count on both hands – but it’s the prints that have caught our eye.
We’ll admit it: our wardrobes are starting to look like a zoo. From leopard print to tiger and even cow hide, there’s so many animal prints adorning our hangers. But, according to the street style stars, fashion editors and stylists alike, it’s snake print that’s taking the limelight and slithering (sorry) firmly to the top of our animal inspired outfits.
The likes of Off-White, Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini and Natasha Zinko have made a case for python print for SS19 by putting it on the catwalk in the form of everything from trousers and tops, to jackets. With these new season designer collections already available and the high street following suit, it’s no surprise the most stylish of women are already trying out the trend.
From ankle boots and arm-candy that’ll uplift the simplest of outfits, to snake print co-ords, we’ve found where everyone has been shopping for their ssseriously (apologies, again) sassy outfits…
You’re welcome, in advance.
1) The co-ord
Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini snakeskin-printed trench coat
As the buying director for Mytheresa, naturally Tiffany Hsu will get the pick of the best bits from the new in section. Opting for all over snake may be a daring move, but @handinfire pulls it off by sticking to staple separates.

2) The ankle boot
Ganni Western mix leather ankle boots
Like Ganni’s sequin dress, the snake print boots are already an ‘it’ buy amongst the style set. Ticking off two trends in one, Western and snake, you can’t go wrong.

3) The trousers

Mango snake print trousers
If you want to be even more daring in the trouser department, then take it one step further with a colour-pop pair. These will look dreamy with a shirt and clashing snake print boots.

4) The jacket
