As I’ve documented before, Instagram has become one of my common sources for a frequent dose of fresh fashion ideas. My feed is full of fashion girls who I follow for inspiration, whose outfits I often look to to fuel my personal shopping habits. It always makes me pause when I start to notice some common themes and on a recent afternoon of scrolling, I discovered a very clear new trend that Instagram fashion girls are getting behind: snakeskin.
The trend doesn’t surprise me in the least. With the movement towards animals prints for fall—like leopard, zebra, tiger, and crocodile prints—snakeskin is a natural evolution. What I personally love about the trend is how versatile it is. Wear a miniskirt with a crewneck sweater and ankle boots like Lucy Williams, and you have a cool take on a classic fall outfit. On the other hand, you can really lean into fall prints by pairing snakeskin pants with a leopard top like Emili Sindlev—a daring take on the trend.
Ahead, see how fashion girls across the globe are wearing snakeskin clothes and accessories, and shop pieces inspired by their looks.
