As the weather gets warmer and our evenings get a little longer , the desire for a fiery new outfit is becoming all too consuming. But with London’s streets transforming into social hotbeds, making a statement in a crowd of stylish city dwellers can seem as fashionably daunting as a year 9 non-uniform day.
What’s quirky and cool but will save my bone dry bank account from full blown suffocation? The longing to dress up in something fresh off the shelf can be tough, but it needn’t be at the expense of your dignity. (It can’t just be me who feels personally attacked every time I check my internet banking?)
With this season’s hottest trend inspired by the scales of the suavest of reptiles, having your fashion-stand-out moment is as easy as shouting the word itself. SNAKE! (Honestly, it’s cathartic, give it a go next time your best friend cancels plans to watch Netflix with her boyfriend)
So, next time you feel mocked by you bank account’s dicey digits, let down by a flakey pal or more importantly, just keen to make an entrance, slither your way into sartorial sass with a standout piece of snake print. Try a snake print clutch to accompany a night with the girls, an asymmetric skirt from House of Holland to revel in Spring’s promising weather or channel Alexander McQueen with a snakeskin choker.
