With so many seasons of leopard and cheetah prints, it’s refreshing to see a new skin taking center stage. While we probably all have a snakeskin bag, shoes or belt in our closets, this season it’s showing up as fabric prints. And if the idea of snakeskin makes you feel a little squeamish, don’t despair. Many designers are taking a nod from the serpent’s pattern and translating it into abstract designs in decidedly vibrant colors. Whether it’s a full snakeskin-print look like a dress or just peeks here and there, you’ll be a charmer this spring and summer.
