Trend Alert-Snakeskin is back!!

Browsing through Grazia, it's great to read that snakeskin is back on trend! Apparently all things crocodile is on its way out and snake print is its natural successor. Jaeger, Topshop, M&S and ASOS have a great selection on offer.

But, if like me, you love thrifting, try picking up a bargain from your local charity shop, flea market or boot sale. I scored this gorgeous Joseph snakeskin jacket from the PDSA charity shop last year for only £5-still not worn it yet though, a must for this summer, I think!

Try picking up a vintage clutch or bag, this is a great way of getting into the trend too!

Ah the Jospeh jacket - very 1990s! Great find, hurry up warm weather.
I have a snake phobia so I will sort of admire the look from afar but I do have a Reiss faux snakeskin belt which I overcome my distaste for!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi kate-yes, I need to start wearing a lot of my unworn clothes once the weather gets better!

Skye said...

I like leopard print, but lived through too much bad 90s snake print and early noughties python print to want to go anywhere near it just yet.

I still like the mock croc though!

Winnie said...

I personally limit snake/croc skin to shoes and bags, I think it's the strangely smooth texture I am not a fan of. I am intrigued to see what the jacket looks like on though, so I look forward to seeing this in an outfit post!

Ooh, the jacket is fantastic!

budget chic said...

Great jacket! I love snakeskin, especially in shoes and handbags! I'm looking to this trend!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi skye-I will really dress this jacket down, rather than up, jeans and a vest top!

Hi winnie-like I said to skye, I'll dress this down as it is a statement piece!

Hi nic-thanks so much!

Hi budget chic-yes, its a great trend, I agree thanks my dear!

Sal said...

That jacket is another example of your amazing thrifting karma, lady. It's a knockout! Husband Mike got me a pair of snakeskin pumps for my bday, so I'm all set for this trend.

I bet you look great in snakeskin! You always pull off that kind of print really well. :)

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

You must have a huge wardrobe, you have so many wonderful items! Absolutely love this, but I think I would probably have to do litle bits of snakeskin as im not brave enough to do a whole piece like this
