Rock the reptile trend

Scared of snakes? You might need to get over your fear this fall because reptile print has taken the style spotlight by storm. From pants to shirts to bags and shoes, it’s time to show some lizard love and add reptile print to your cooler weather wardrobe.

Cute crossbody

Give your handbag collection a boost for fall with this printed reptile crossbody bag ($139). The mid-size bag is perfect for running errands and can easily be taken into evening with the right outfit. If you’re not sure about serpentine style, wearing it on a bag is the best way to introduce the trend into your wardrobe.

Fierce flats

We can’t get enough of this cute pair of snakeskin print flats with a cute metallic cap toe, perfect for throwing on with jeans or skinny black pants ($40). They do a great job elevating basics and offer a simple way to embrace the reptile print trend without going over the top.

Snake print maxi

Think you need to put your maxi skirts away now that fall is here? Think again. They can easily be worn well past summer and we’re excited to add this snake print style to our arsenal of cooler weather looks ($96). Add a fitted white tank, cropped denim jacket and a pair of ankle booties and you’re all set for the season.

Bold blouse

If you’re set on embracing the reptile print trend (and we say, why not?), then one of your best bets is this elegant yet edgy snake print silk blouse ($250). Pair this chic, serpentine piece with skinny trousers and bold hued pumps for an eye-catching at-work ensemble.

Skinny jeans

Jazz up your collection of jeans by adding this pair of python print skinnies to the mix ($158). Not only are they totally comfy thanks to the fact that they’re stretchy, but they can be dressed up (add heels and a blazer) or down (pair with flats and a fitted tee), making them a versatile (and on trend) addition to your fall wardrobe.

Suede booties

We’re all about the booties this season -- for good reason. They’re fun to wear, ultra-chic and easily elevate any outfit from drab to fab. We’re currently coveting this stylish suede Rebecca Minkoff pair with a snake printed panel on the front ($395). We’ll be wearing these with everything from pencil skirts to sweater dresses.
