From Serpentine Prints to Slithering Accesories

 - Feb 7, 2013
February marks the kick-off of the Chinese New Year celebrations, which is fitting for this snake-inspired fashion round-up. If you didn't know, 2013 is the Year of the Snake, known for its elegance, intelligence and mystery. This collection of items ranges from mesmerizing jewelry, bold accessories and exotic evening wear.

Browse through this serpentine list to inspire your 2013 spring/summer look with the likes of python-print pants and snakeskin shoes. Slinky reptile fashion remains a strong staple this season as it adds the right mixture of romance and sensuality. I find snakeskin pairs perfectly with a pop of bright color, while the ever-popular snake-shaped rings are both intricate and decorative.

As an homage to one of the fiercest reptile prints, any one of these pieces are sure to bring good fortune to your wardrobe.
