    Fall Trend 2012: Snakeskin

    So what do you think of snakeskin? Some women think of it as a little trendy, a bit on the wild side or just too edgy for their style. I know women who will not even go near it because of their fear of snakes. I hate snakes with a passion, but I’m drawn to certain snakeskin prints especially in shoes/boots.

    Snakeskin prints are a great way to add a little interest if you are a “neutrals only” gal. Many customers I know simply are drawn to shades of gray, taupe, cream and of course black. When then add color they feel conspicous and do not like the attention color can bring. Some don’t like color around their faces. Snakeskin accessories are a way to add a little something extra without color.

    I like the texure and variety that snakeskin offers with accessories. I purchased my first snakeskin piece (other than a belt) at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale by Sam Edelman. I haven’t worn them yet, but I’m hopeful they will work for me. They are now on sale again. I liked them because they have more of the brown tones vs gray. Snakeskin can really take on different shades of black/gray or brown.


    Snakeskin has been popular the last couple of years. I think this fall you are seeing more than ever. Below is a layout I create for my Nordstrom board on Pinterest. Start with a small accessory if you’re unsure and see what you think of snakeskin!
