Autumn Trends: Snakeskin

SNAKE SKINS. Snakesskin is the most popular, but Gucci have gone more way out with ostrich skin shoes!

At Georgio Armani python skin was used.

And Russell and Bromley, Chloe and Hunter stuck by faithful snakeskin shoes whilst Dior used the same texture for their handbags.

I have a feeling that exotic accessories are on the rise and we will be seeing a lot more of them in the near future.

All classic ballet pumps have bows on them and I love it when they have a contemporary stylish twist, like snakeskin. I have loads of moles or "beauty spots" on my feet by the way and that is why you can see them in a lot of photos.


The high street store H&M (my favourite for bargains) has not just stuck to accessories but gone all out in head to toe snakeskin with this dress which is one of two that are available in store. On Fashion's Night Out my friend brought a tunic style snake skin dress. It looked great on her because it really suited her figure as she does a lot of sports therefore is quite muscular with broad shoulders but she always manages to dress well for her body type.


Yay, Chanel! My favourite designer label that just happens to be a ridiculously expensive couturier scores another iconic, stylish piece. This bag is the classic, classy, quilted bag but with an edgy twist that nods towards rebellious. Chanel is all about rebellion however, one might think that its clothes do not reflect that as they are rarely in anyway risque unlike some other labels (ahem, Louis Vuitton) but Coco Chanel was indeed a very rebellious and oh so inspirational woman. Read more about her life story here here and here.

I have loved brightly coloured bags ever since my obsession with Cambridge Satchel Company and their fluro collection (this obsession started a while ago and I am finally going to get one for Christmas!) This bag is such a gorgeous statement piece.
