In this economic climate it’s hard to limit yourself to those special finds you know will last through fad and trend. One you can be sure not to pass up is python. The pattern or skins are statement makers all on their own. In any form- bag, shoe, jewelry, real or fake- this print is dramatic enough to give a little hiss to even your most pared down, jeans-and-tee outfits.
Python was a major trend on the spring runways- from stunning Dior halter tops and cutting edge Prada skirts to statement making python handbags at Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Matthew Willamson, and more!
Rock a pair of python pumps to give your look a sexy twist like Lindsay Lohan, pictured above wearing Louboutins; pair a python clutch with a retro style like Nicole Richie (wearing a dress by Issa London) for a modern edge , or go all out in a python frock like Sarah Jessica Parker, who rocked a style from L’Wren Scott. From the red carpet to real life, python pieces are always a definite do.
