Snake print is one of those patterns that should always be used in moderation, as overkill is far too easy. This season it appears to be replacing leopard as the must-have animal print, so we’re here to help you out on how to master it.
Rule 1: Most definitely do not match your outfit to your accessories. The choice is plain and simple, dress or accessories, but never both.

Rule 2: More often than not, the larger the print the harder it is to wear. To be on the safe side, if the print is large – make sure that it is abstract and/or monochrome.
Rule 3: Less is more. Small snake print details, like a pocket or collar, will ensure that your outfit remains modern. Seen on the catwalk at Carven were small snake print details among the bold, block colours of the collections palette.
Rule 4: Styling really does make all the difference. The style queen Kate Moss is the perfect inspiration for this trend. She shows that it’s essential to balance out a statement snake print item with simple, plain pieces– eg. Snake print jacket, black dress and grey clutch or snake print dress, white jacket and black courts.
