Slither in to Spring with Snakeskin

I hate snakes….I mean HATE them. Yet, I have no problem at all wearing their dead skin….LOL

In case you have not noticed the hottest trend this season is the snakeskin print, and it comes in a massive range of colors. This print is not a new trend but rather, another classic neutral, which means it would go well with many items in your wardrobe. Here are a few effortless ways that you can slither this print to office and cocktail parties:

MIX WITH NEUTRALS ~ I highly recommend mixing this print with neutral tones such as black, white, and grey so the print can be the focal point of your outfit. A great example is my outfit in these photos where I mixed a grey cashmere sweater with the snakeskin skirt.

PRINT MIXING ~ You can pair two totally non-matching colors and patterns like florals with snakeskin and still look cute and unexpected. Just like wearing multiple prints so make sure at least one color in each piece matches.

MAKE IT POP ~ You can make that perfect green-snakeskin dress pop by wearing all black around it. This is the most effortless way to wear this print.

GO EDGY ~ This print is very assertive but you can go edgy with accessories by keeping everything else simple and quiet.

Spring Trend ~ Puffy Sleeves

Announcement! More so than the one arm only blouse or those cutouts around the bicep things you have been seeing, puffy princess sleeves are this summer’s off the shoulder top, only more funky. (Thank you 80’s) Because it is a trend in the age of the internet, its shelf life is guaranteed to be short lived…..thank goodness. This is not a trend I will be partaking in. You can take advantage now before you see it everywhere and get sick of it. Here is how to wear this trend this spring and summer.

Easy Ways to Transition From Winter to Spring

Dressing appropriately for that awkward time between winter and spring can be a struggle, especially this year with Mother Nature being all over the board. You want so badly for it to be warm outside, but it is still way too soon to put away your sweaters. Here are some pieces of clothing that can help you bridge that fashion gap in style.

A pastel color palette makes this sweater the perfect transitional pullover — great in early spring or later in the year as a night-time beach cover-up.

Swap your scarf for a cute printed bandana and you will keep your neck warm while giving a nod to those sunny days ahead.

The style and versatility of a moto jacket mixed with the comfy coziness of your favorite sweatshirt. Layer it under your coat while it is still cold out and wear it on its own once spring has officially sprung.

The little pink dress is to spring what the little black dress is to winter. This one will keep you warm, but that is what coats are for, and you will feel better just shedding those drab, dark colors that tend to dominate during the colder months.

A jacket with a sportier vibe will help shift your mind-set and prepare you for the warmer, more active months ahead.

Nothing says “spring” like a fresh pair of white sneakers, even if all the snow has not quite melted yet.

A pair of bright, white jeans can springify any look. Add extra warmth by layering a pair of fishnets underneath so they peek out through the rips.
