Spring trends: snake print

Now that it's officially spring, let's talk spring 2019 trends. Animal print was a big trend for fall, and it shows no signs of slowing down, but for spring, snakeskin prints are the most appealing for me, especially in lighter, more pale shades of blush, gray, and beige. It's a subtler, softer way to wear it, especially in warmer weather. Here are some of my faves.

1. You have to look closely to even realize that this blouse has a snake print—there's almost a geometric quality to it, that's softened by the pinky colors. As a bonus, it's on major sale too.

2. As an Isabel Marant superfan, I am ashamed to say that I had no idea she made bags. Hopefully I can make up for lost time with this perfectly executed snake-embossed leather bag. (It's a bit of a splurge, but worth it, in my opinion.)

3. As someone with a freakishly short torso, I often have trouble with one-piece swimsuits, but this one is so chic, I'm willing to try again. Note the strategic placement of the print—it has a smaller scale at the waist to make the most of your curves.

4. I buy nearly everything but clothes on Amazon, but this blazer just might make me get in on that too. It's a statement, but in a cool, neutral kind of way.

5. Are platform shoes back? Who cares? These are super cute, and they look pretty comfy too. I feel like Kate Spade is killing it right now, and I'm here for it.

6. You may recognize this print from my birthday wish list; I sadly missed out on the dress but feel like this jumpsuit may be my redemption. The print also comes in a pants version, which is just as fun.

7. To me, skirts are the easiest way to wear a trend—they're generally flattering, and they keep the trend in question far enough away from your face, where things can sometimes get too busy. This one has a beautiful drape to it and an ideal length.

8. I am breaking one of my Cheryl Shops rules, in that this dress is not at all bra-friendly. But it's just too good—I had to include it. The design is so chic, and I love the pleated skirt. This would be perfect for a summertime wedding. Hopefully someone out there can rock it braless!

I have to agree, I love snakeskin in more of a muted, light gray or blush shade too! Lovely picks, esp that jumpsuit!!!

What fun snake print pieces! I should give my snakeprint maxi dress another wear! :)

Hope you are having a lovely weekend :) It's a quiet one here as it's still so hot, too hot for autumn!
