Spring 2012 Exotic Trend

Spring’s warmer weather ushers in a new found love for exotic prints!

This season it’s all about luxurious skins and prints, and they’re adorning everything from bags to dresses and pumps! Ladylike top handle bags done in jewel tone python prints were seen all over the Spring 2012 runway. These luxurious prints give the classic silhouette a rock n’roll edge and are the perfect compliment to any look.

Not only are the finishes done, but designers have also gone graphic with realistic versions of the actual reptile. Fergie was recently spotted wearing a black dress complete with a graphic reproduction of a snake entwined on the front. Lavin is the designer behind the the printed frock and has received quite a bit of attention for the realistic rendition of the animal.

Designers such as Gucci, Jason Wu, and Prada have made snakeskin a street style must have for the season. If your dying to try out this look, try mixing in a pair of snakeskin heels. The unexpected print can take an ordinary outfit from drab to fab! We love these peep toe pumps by Sam Edelman, the chunky heel and pop of tan leather make these a great addition for your Spring wardrobe!
