Half of Our Team Now Owns This New Dress Trend

Until this year, snakeskin print made me think of Les Battersby in Coronation Street, but it’s become the unlikely print that can’t be restocked fast enough. Topshop’s snake shirtdress sold out within less than 24 hours of being restocked and AmazonFashion's Find snake print dress sold out within a few days. These aren't the only high-street store to embrace the python — Zara, New Look and ASOS are all looking rather slithery right now. There’s actually no rule when it comes to the type of snake to go for. Shiny or matte, orange or more grey, there really is every type of snakeskin you could imagine.

Animal print is so prolific in 2018 that shopping is like going on a fashion safari— it’s no longer just about leopard, as cow, zebra and snake prints are also having a moment too. And snake isn't quite as out-there as you might think — keep scrolling for some of our favourite python dresses we've seen.
