There are tons of styles and colors to choose from, and they are all fashion relevant in the end. You just have to find the piece that is perfect for you.

Faux snakeskin has come a long way over the years, and it now looks more realistic than ever. Many shoppers will not buy snakeskin bags because the ideal of using real snakeskin goes against their beliefs. Luckily, those shoppers can now get the purses they want without having to compromise their morals along the way. You could do the same.

Snakeskin is durable and waterproof, so it works well in just about any situation. It can be paired with faux leather, vinyl, or just about any other modern fabric, but it also works well on its own. You may get a bag with just a hint of snakeskin on the straps, or you may get one that has snakeskin covering the entire bag. The options are almost endless.

The fashions and accessories in this video do not always match the outfits in style and color of the snakeskin print, but instead they are coordinated to not be overpowering.  One of the first outfits features a grey pleather snake skin jacket with a golden yellow similar print handbag and a pair of snakeskin rimmed sunglasses.  This look pairs a bold print with smaller similar print items that don’t detract from the look of the statement piece.

The next look is of a simple snakeskin printed sleeveless blouse with matching gloves and scarf, not to mention if you look closely, there are a pair of hot matching heels.  The way this video is set up allows for the viewer to see some of the trendiest fashions without taking too much time to explain what goes with what and why.

You can see the simple explanations through the looks presented learning that all you need is one bold snake skin statement piece, and then add a few smaller accessories which will complement the outfit well.  Pairing simple items with a bold piece can take an outfit to the next level.

There is even a way to bring together multiple eye catching pieces as with the one ensemble where the model is wearing a snake skin print dress, and snake skin decorated waist belt and a bright bold sequin jacket.  The pairing of the different materials allows for some trendy fashion ideas fit for a club or event.

Jackets from snake skin

Snakeskin jackets are some of the hottest trends between wild print fabrics to simple realistic prints, snakeskin jackets are bold statement perfect for jazzing up any outfit.  There are many different ways to wear snakeskin, and not all of them involve killing a bunch of snakes or dealing with unrealistic looking threaded fabrics.

snake skin fabric jacketThe best way to get that animal hide look is to go with a jacket made from faux snakeskin such as vinyl.  Vinyl is a versatile fabric that can be utilized in clothing pieces, accessories, and even shoes.  Vinyl is animal friendly and extremely easy to care for unlike the true animal derived hides found in the older snakeskin fashions.

Celebrities and fans alike have been embracing the animal print trend this season, and even though it is about to be Spring that does not mean that you cannot pick a daring jacket to go with your wardrobe.  There are even many ways to accessorize your jacket with similar prints without going too far.

However, wearing a loud jacket such as the one seen on Nicolas cage is the perfect start to slowly incorporating more snakeskin into male fashions.  Women tend to have less of a problem in selecting the appropriate snakeskin items for their wardrobe, however, a more daring and interesting choice would be to choose to wear a snakeskin print vinyl suit jacket.  When trimmed with black silk or similar fabric it gives this kind of jacket a more sophisticated look.  All you then have to do is to pair it with a simple black dress appropriate for the office.

Snakeskin is a fabric that should not be feared when incorporating into new environments, because if it is done properly the outcome can be a very stylish one.  Jackets of this print do not have to be of the natural animal hide print, they can be all black as well.  There are black snakes, yes, but we generally see more python styled pieces of grey and bronze.

shiny snakeskin fabricAnother interesting way to wear a snakeskin jacket is to choose one that is not only a single color, but that is patent finished, sequined, or shiny in some form.  This kind of finish to a jacket makes it pop when paired with more simplistic pieces.

Do something different and daring with your wardrobe and add a snakeskin jacket to it whether it is natural print or an even more interesting an unnatural print with sequins or bold colors.  This is one style trend that is not going away any time soon, and should last far into next season.

Vinyl is not dry clean only, in many instances it can be washed gently or just given a good wipe down with a cloth and some soap.

Vinyl bathing suits are also a better suited for the water, because they repel water rather than suck it up. When you get out of the water, nobody wants to be dripping wet with water, especially if you are planning on going somewhere, so why not choose a fabric that allows you to be a little bit drier than the competition.

Summer is the season to wear the daring and the bold; it will be worth your while to take your bathing suit decisions to the next level with a snakeskin print in a vinyl material.

Snakeskin Coats and Long Skirts by Missoni

Category : Uncategorized

Italian fashion powerhouse, Missoni, has long been known for its eye-catching zig-zag prints and patterns that have made it a status symbol the world over.  For Fall and Winter of 2011 to 2012, the Milanese legend showcased another pattern that is catching just as many eyes and turning just as many heads:  snakeskin.

On the runway, the model showed off a full-length snakeskin coat that was a true show-stealer, putting all eyes on the elegant and hip selection, making it the must-have coat for fall and winter.  The Missoni snakeskin coat was a statement piece that captivated everyone and inevitably became the “statement” that everyone wanted to make with their clothing.

It is not just Missoni that is embracing the trend; snakeskin and other animal prints have been popping up all over the runways and it is evident that the look is here to stay for awhile.  It is being seen in all colors, from muted beiges and greys to bold reds to bright yellows and oranges and on all different types of clothing to accessories. Jimmy Choo showed handbags in all colors, Chloe showed a coat similar to the one by Missoni, Marc Jacobs showed a futuristic snakeskin dress, Valentino showed off knee-high boots, and Gucci showed a retro look with a modern take: a yellow snakeskin and fur waistlength jacket.

The snakeskin look is all about making it your own and doing what you are comfortable with.  If you’re a little snakeskin-shy, a handbag may be a great option for testing out the look; if you’re feeling a little more bold, boots may be the way to go for you; if you whole-heartedly embrace the trend and have a fashion-forward side that loves to be daring, one of the coats or dresses will satisfy your love of snakeskin.

Almost everyone loves the new snakeskin trend that is showing up all over European runways, but some people are not daring enough to wear it themselves.  If you love the look but do not think that you can pull it off, the best alternative for you is to incorporate snakeskin into your wardrobe through snakeskin accessories.

Snakeskin Laptop Case

Although snakeskin can be found on boots, belts, and all other accessories, a snakeskin laptop case can solve two problems, since it is often difficult to find a laptop case that matches your personal flair in a market pervaded by bland options.  Most of the laptop cases on the market are made from nylon and mass produced in China, which is far from being unique, stylish, and exciting.  Most professionals are not able to take part in the fun and fashionable trend that Hollywood stars have been wearing everywhere, but through laptop cases, you are able to walk that delicate balance between conservative and daring that will get you noticed around the office, but in a good way!

There are a wide variety of options to fit your personal taste; one of the most striking options is a laptop case made from elaphe, a rat snake commonly found throughout the southeastern United States.  This particular type of skin is white with various shades of brown with diamond shapes as well as smaller patterns that when joined together produce an amazing piece of art.

 

Snakeskin laptop cases come in every color and skin type imaginable, so it is all about finding one to suit your individual personality.  The best part of snakeskin items is that all items made from genuine skin are unique, so, while similar, there are slight differences between each bag, which fashionistas appreciate, as there is nothing more bland than cookie cutter fashion accessories.  You can guarantee that you will never be dull or blend into the crowd with one of these fabulous statement pieces.  A snakeskin laptop case is more like an ancient mosaic than something used for storage.

 

Although it is beautiful, it is also incredibly functional: your laptop fits snugly into the case, secured against scratches and dings and there is plenty of cushioning to ensure that it is well protected. As with other laptop cases, each snakeskin laptop case has its own organizational features for storing flash drives, pens, and other items.

 

While a snakeskin laptop case may be considered an investment, it is well-worth it, as snakeskin is far more durable than other, more traditional fabrics used to make laptop cases.  In most cases, they will not show wear, even after several years of use.  While other laptop cases may only last for a matter of months, one of these laptop cases will, most likely, last for a lifetime.

 

This is the perfect way for professionals to take part in the snakeskin craze that we are seeing everywhere, taking their office accessories from boring to brilliant immediately.  Your laptop case is certain to make your co-workers envious!

Celebrity Snakeskin

Celebrities are sporting snakeskin fabrics.

Snakeskin, a look that has many fashion thoughtful individuals pining for in their wardrobe, has poachers on the hunt to make big bucks out of real snakes.  However, there is an alternative to this cruel and thoughtless behavior which is with the adaptation of faux snakeskin.

We are not talking just any old faux snakeskin, but high quality fashionable vinyl snakeskin.  Snakeskin is most notably featured in accessories such as purses and shoes; however, faux snakeskin is making its appearance more and more in other forms of clothing such as dresses and leggings.  Leggings are so in right now, that a hot pair of faux snakeskin leggings would be perfect.

Speaking of faux snakeskin, celebrities are beginning to embrace the faux snakeskin trend more and more every day.  This is largely due to PETA’s work with having celebrities pledge not to wear animal products like true snakeskin or fur.  Celebrities from all across the globe are pledging not to make the taboo decision to wear real snakeskin.

Celebrities like Mariah Carey, Snooki, Naomi Cambell, Sienna Miller, Emmy Rossum, and Rihanna can be seen wearing all snakeskin outfits both on the red carpet and the runway.  These celebrities look stunning in their animal outfits, but it can be hard to distinguish the faux snakeskin from the real snakeskin.

Mariah Carey always wears the sexiest outfits on the red carpet and while performing.  She can be seen in a sexy form fitting mini snakeskin dress that is tanked on top as well as in a gray snakeskin pattern color.  Mariah Carey looks both playful and beautiful wearing this animal inspired getup, and shows how to wear snakeskin without being too over powering.

Wearing snakeskin inspired fabrics can be a fashion disaster if not paired correctly with other pieces in your ensemble.  This is, because snakeskin inspired fabrics are so powerful on their own that when someone wears snakeskin designs with the wrong pieces it can throw the look completely off.

Snooki wearing snakeskin.

Snooki, a reality T.V. star from MTV’s Jersey Shore, wears an off the shoulder faux snakeskin inspired look that is a little more flowing that what many expect snakeskin outfits to be.  Snakeskin designs are generally out of true snakeskin, faux leather, or leather.  However, the best way to achieve this look in a much sexier way is to purchase a fabric pattern and have the piece made from faux snakeskin vinyl fabrics, because the look of snakeskin is better suited to faux leather than to cotton or other natural fabric.

Using faux snakeskin vinyl fabrics there are many different options out there depending on the look that you are going for.  Some are stretch, some are not, and some stretch in both ways and others look only good stretched in one way.  There are also so many different faux snakeskin vinyl colors that you can turn an outfit from a simple gray or black snakeskin inspired outfit and turn it into blue or a sexy fun pink.  The options are endless.

Naomi Cambell has been seen on the runway in a more modern one-piece number of brown snakeskin.  This outfit is a tube top jumper with pants that end at the knees.  This look is both sexy and playful, as it invokes images of childhood clothing.  This one-piece, Naomi paired with a lacey bra, and bold black leather inspired necklace and bracelets.  This look is made even better by the bold yet plain jewelry as it accents the bold snakeskin pattern well.

The choice of the lacey bra under the tube top gives a subtle oomph to the look.  This kind of large one-piece statement is hard to pull off, but Naomi does it well.  Another snakeskin inspired large statement making piece is that of Sienna Miller on the red carpet sporting a black and bronze metallic faux snakeskin suit with matching leggings instead of trousers.  This metallic faux snakeskin look is both eye catching and powerful, paired with a simple satin blue blouse, this look is classic.  Sienna shows that suits do not have to be boring, and snakeskin inspired suits do not have to be ugly cliché pieces.

Emmy Rossum pulls off a similar look with her all black metallic snakeskin inspired sleeveless dress that is made even more beautiful by her simple choice in makeup and shoes.  The simple dress design stands out, and makes Emmy look gorgeous without the fact that it is faux snakeskin being too overpowering.  Emmy’s look is easily obtained through using simple faux vinyl fabrics, and because the design is so simple almost anyone with sewing experience can achieve this look.

Rihanna's snake skin jacket

Rihanna's snake skin jacket.

Lastly, Rihanna graces us with a faux snakeskin look that can be paired with just about any plain pair of pants or skirt.  Rihanna wears a tan snakeskin inspired ruffed sleeveless top paired with a pair of simple chic white legging pants.  This bold piece paired with the simplistic elements of the white bottoms makes the outfit stand out even more.  The use of less heavy faux snakeskin fabrics allows for the ruffles and details to move and flow.

These sexy celebrity snakeskin inspired looks are hard to distinguish from one another as faux or real snakeskin which is a compliment to the high quality of faux snakeskin seen in fashion houses today, however, it points out the sad fact that real snakeskin is still a coveted item.  More fashion designers should try and choose wonderfully embossed vinyl snakeskin fabrics over those that are real, because it not only saves animals, but it is also far less expensive.  When the same look can be achieved through using faux snakeskin, then why would someone not choose the faux snakeskin option?
