year of the snake

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and, though we love a good auspicious red outfit, we think the Year of the Snake is the perfect time to don one of fashion's favourite textures: snakeskin. The look is chic and the print has become somewhat of a 'wardrobe staple' over previous years. Though actually snakeskin can be pricy, we love these snakeskin prints and snakeskin-inspired textures from the Spring/Summer 2013 collections; perfect pieces in which to usher in the Year of the Snake.

D.EFECT's snakeskin print coats in sky blue are to die for.


If prints aren't for you, then the scaly sequin shoulders on this sass & bide jacket can provide that hint of snake-y goodness you're looking for.


This printed snakeskin tank from One Teaspoon is perfect to get you ready for summer.


And the shirt version from One Teaspoon looks great worn loosely over little shorts or skirts.


Finally, this One Teaspoon dress is killer, too.
