Snakeskin Print: It’s Time You Let The Trend Slither Into Your Wardrobes!

Fashion, Health & Wellness

Animal prints were never my thing, and to this day I’m not too sure of the trend. Honestly, I don’t even own a single animal print outfit! But last season’s Snakeskin print got me bad. I discovered this trend scrolling through my Instagram feed and realised fashionistas around the world are clearly behind this hot new print.

I’ve never actually been a fan of leopard or cheetah or zebra prints, but what I love the most about the Snakeskin print is its versatility. Any outfit with the snakeskin print on works as a statement piece!

Another thing about this trend is although it emerged around fall, it still can be worn during any time of the year. Plus, the print can also be seen on accessories too, apart from wardrobe staples. Here goes my favourite snakeskin pieces for you all to snag now:-

Inject a generous amount of jazz to your otherwise bland formal wear.

Tips to Master Tonal Dressing!

Fashion

Pulling off a well-put-together look actually, takes a lot of putting together! Well, if you have regretted all your life wearing one tonal colour from head to toe as a kid, this once fashion faux pas has officially earned its style credits and how!

Thanks to Tonal Dressing, last fall’s popular trend that is still going strong! Trust us, we are going bonkers over this trend as it truly brings out intensity and uniformity of one single colour.

Figuring out which colors work together is quite a style rut in itself! Well, if you are not a fan of pattern overload, tonal dressing opens up a world of options for you to up your dressing game on point every time!

A popular trend for many years but not endorsed by fashion enthusiasts until last fall, tonal dressing was all about the minimalist lover’s all-black look.

Anything but boring, tonal dressing is a unique dressing style that demands attention! A great way to dress effortlessly, all you need to know is to combine the right set of colours while balancing dark and light tones. Here are some great garbs for you to master the trend:-

Dress in Dramatic, Super Chic Tones
Do not raise eyebrows if you happen to see fashionistas dressing in single toned dramatic forest greens, midnight blues and other rich shades like wine and raspberry.

tonal dressing pinterest

These are of course, not for the faint-hearted, but a little risqué dressing won’t hurt anyone.

For a super-chic look, go for all whites or try embracing heart-warming pastels. Jewel tones like emerald, violet or sapphire also make for striking options.

Clash of Textures
If you want to take up your tonal game up a notch, try juxtaposing shades and textures. Not just it offers an essential contrast to the look; it also gives a modern and interesting spin to it! Quirk up your outfit with statement pieces as varying as sheers, heavy wool to faux feathers, furs to delicate lace and polished picks like silk.

Splashes of bold tones, when worked with small dashes of black, makes for striking combinations! Don’t you agree with us lads?

Timeless wardrobe essentials to brave through the winter-to-spring transition!

Fashion

It is again that time of the year when the weather forecast turns as confusing as our daily style rut!

While the arrival of spring is always a welcome delight, dressing for the transitional season often becomes a dreadful challenge for most of us.

So, instead of scrambling your wardrobe for something to wear- save time by including these three timeless closet essentials to sport a rocking style during the ‘not quite winter, not quite spring’ season.

Chambrays

No other piece of clothing can be as versatile as the Chambrays! With a little weight to it, this all-season attire makes for a better transitional option than the usual lightweight oxfords.

They have a range of separates to choose from- shirts, shirt dresses, maxi dresses and tops, lightweight jackets…

It is the kind of clothing you only need to invest in once!

Check out these Chambray inspirations and pick your own statement garb!

Long and flowy shrugs

Shrugs with length and flare aren’t exactly revolutionary but when it comes to transitional dressing, these statement cover-ups does add up the oomph to the overall look.

They score brownie points further for being lightweight, versatile and polished. Wear them with a shorts+tee combo.

Layer them on your sundresses…

Or simply throw an ankle length shrug over any formal or casual attire now and then to warm up or cool off.

Long sleeve dresses
Can’t resist the urge to wear those pretty dresses that you bought last year?

But the bigger struggle is wearing them while trying to save oneself from the freaky ‘hot-to-cold-to-cold-to-sweaty’ weather which, all the more, makes it a much unappealing thought!

Well, we have an easy resort to this never-ending problem that kills two birds with one stone! When you want to wear a dress with no tights, a long sleeve dress is your answer.

To cut the boredom, try on quirky necklines like turtlenecks.

Funky silhouettes like asymmetrical hemlines…

Now this one is a serious trend to watch out for during colder months! Sprucing up the otherwise winter gloom of ‘blacks and grays’, use of metallic shine is already a ‘Knight in shining armor’!
