Add a serious dose of bold color to your wardrobe with the help of these sky high Alice + Olivia snake print leather pumps in vibrant royal blue (, $295).

Chic clutch

Since we firmly believe there’s no such thing as having too many handbags, we suggest snapping up this party-perfect snake print envelope clutch for your next night out (, $98). The pearlescent finish adds a glam effect we love and the slightly larger size makes it great for those nights you need to carry a little bit extra.

Flats can be just as stylish as heels depending on the color, design and whether or not they’re embellished with anything. Case in point: This pretty pair of rounded toe ballet flats in shimmery snake print (, $245). Wear these with anything from pencil skirts to jeans for an on trend nod to the hottest print in town.
