What to wear: On grand scales


Booking a safari to spot animals in the wild? That’s so last season! Just step outside, and you’ll be able to spot anything from tigers to leopards and zebras on your path.

This season, it’s snake-print (not skin!) that’s taking over the streets by slithering into your closets.



According to the Chinese zodiac, it might still be the year of the pig, we are dubbing this Fall/Winter 2019 as the year of the snake. Finding a real-life version of this cold-blooded reptile in our closet isn’t exactly on our bucket list, but the print in its many variations is definitely making it onto our wish list. While a snake-look may seem a bit risqué due to the poisonous fangs that are indissolubly linked to it, we can confirm that everything from our pants to bags, shoes, and dresses is danger-free.


The biggest advantage of snake-print is that it’s incredibly chic without trying too hard. Items in the animal’s natural color scheme have a neutral tendency to them by sticking to hues of brown, beige and black. When you really want to make an impact, we recommend opting for scales in less natural shades like bright yellow and blue. Trust us, soon you’ll become just as obsessed with this season’s snake-print as you were with the Nokia video game.
