A Killer Snake Dress for Spring: Styled Three Ways

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Snake is BIG this Spring, you guys. Or I’m declaring it so, at least. I’m loving it. You may have seen my Facebook post the other day trying to decide between these boots and these boots. I still can’t make a decision: the votes are seriously split down the middle! #thanksanyway Ha.

It wasn’t hard to decide on this amazing dress, though. It is FABULOUS, and for me to say that about a dress, well…you know it’s good. You’ll be seeing more of this beauty, but for now, check out a few styling options for this python print number…

Outfit 1: Snake Print Dress For A Night Out or A Fun Event

I can hardly style a dress anymore without a leather jacket, so here ya go. I love the look. And these booties are the ones you saw me gush about recently, too. Two solid closet pieces that go with everything. This is a very me way to style any dress.

Python? Yes, please. We're obsessed with snake when it comes to animal print, so we're styling this dress up & down, from low-key to edgy. See our 3 looks.JacketAllSaints Bales Jacket – My fav. Wearing a US 6 here.

DressTopshop Python Pleated Shirtdress – Such a rad find. The dress is comfy and has not one, but two slits in front for a super-flattering look on a shortie like me. The slits aren’t too much on me though at 5’4″, and the length is still totally fine overall. Here I’m wearing a US 8 (fits like a 6-8) but I wound up ordering the US 6 because the blouse was too big. I’d say for this particular Topshop piece, stick with your normal size. The waistline stretches on this one.

Boots – Amalfi by Rangoni Piccola Bootie – Insanely soft, comfy heel height, and yet still sexy. These are lovely boots I’ll have for a long time.

Outfit 2: Snake Print Dress For The Office (Or Cooler Temps)

I’m loving this styling for work, and while it’s still early Spring and chilly. If you have a more conservative office or outing, throw on a pair of tights, too. The slit is juuuust high enough for me to feel OK in, but you may want more coverage for work.

Outfit 3: Snake Print Dress For Spring (If It Ever Gets Here)

Here’s hoping, you guys. And I’m not trusting that groundhog anymore. This is a fun casual look that makes me realize this dress would actually be good for traveling. It just dawned on me to try it with a graphic tee on top. Stay tuned. I’ll post on Instagram if it works. Here you can see more clearly that each side has a slit, showing off my lovely pale legs (yes, even after a trip to Florida. Ha).

Have you hopped on the snake print bandwagon yet? That is a weird way of asking you if you like snake print…haha. But I’m just going with it. I’m loving that it’s like the springy version of leopard or something. Anyway, it’s a fun update to the closet, and you’ll be seeing much more of it from me in the next months —because I’m hooked! You know I love my animal print. Do share if you find some good pieces!

  1. woohoo! Thanks for featuring me on the blog today :-)….And I love your style! Especially jacket and boots are inspired me too. My favorite one is Flight Jackets as usual but this is very eye catching i wish to buy it. Keep it up and share more

  2. Snakes alive! That dress is gorgeous. And the way you style it! Soooo good. I would have never thought to have put a grey v-neck sweater over the top but it looks really good. Once again, you nailed it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I just bought a snakeskin print tee by Z supply to ease my way into the trend. Springs version of cheetah print is exactly right on.
