At Milan Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2023 zebra, leopard, and tiger prints were widespread on the runway. Snake skin prints also saw a resurgence that carried on into the fall collections for New York Fashion Week. Designer Dion Lee heavily used this print in his clothing and makeup for his shows, though, this trend saw a revival at New York Fashion Week in 2018.

Several celebrities have flaunted this look, including Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and many more. Wearing snake skin might seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Clothing items like trench courts, long-sleeve shirts, and pants come to mind. You can go over the top with it or add a subtle touch. There's also no rule that you can't wear snake skin print in the warmer months. Here's how you can style and slay this print look for the summer.

Don a snake skin print mini dress

You can't go wrong with a mini dress for summer. @nikkikraemer accessories her snake skin print tube dress with a white blazer and white sandals. This is more of a fancier daytime look, however, if you want a more laid-back outfit, you can style the same type of dress with white sneakers and a cropped jacket. If your mini dress has shoulder straps, wear a white T-shirt underneath for a '90s-inspired twist.

Beat the heat in snake skin body suit

If you feel that a snake skin print dress is too adventurous for you, opt for a bodysuit instead. Take a bodysuit and style it with your favorite pair of denim shorts. As for shoes, you can wear slide sandals, strappy heels, or Western-style boots. Whatever you decide on, know that this worthy summer outfit for any occasion. As another option, you could pair the bodysuit with a denim skirt or a black mini skirt.

Look elegant in a snake skin print midi skirt

There are many ways to style a snake print midi skirt for summer. For example, @hedercasas paired hers with tall brown boots and a brown bustier top. Alternatively, pair the same skirt with a neutral-colored blouse and open-toe mules or heels. Want to make the outfit less dressy? Wear a basic solid-colored tank top and a pair of sandals. The skirt will work as a flawless transitional piece. When the weather starts to cool, wear it with a sweater or coat.

Bask in the sun with a snake skin print bathing suit

Summer would not be complete without a day spent at the beach or in the water. That said, snake skin print is not just for clothing or accessories; it's a standout for bathing suits. You can rock a more neutral option like this white and deep red set, or make a bolder statement with a neon bikini. And if bikinis aren't your thing, a one-piece will be just as impressive.

Sport a snake skin print top or skirt

No matter how you wear it, snake skin print clothing will look tantalizing. You can rock a simple summer outfit with a button-up snake skin blouse, a dark denim skirt, and sneakers. For a night out, faux leather pants or shorts with any style top create a ravishing look. Have a skirt with this print? Wear any black top to ensure that the skirt is the star of the show. Likewise, you can add a classy touch to this outfit by pairing it with a blazer.

Accessorize with snake skin print

You don't have to wear a snake skin print outfit to incorporate this trend into your summer wardrobe. You can elect accessories instead. For instance, a snake skin print purse can add texture to a neutral outfit. The same can be said for a belt like this one from Zara in different colors. Then there are shoes. Snake skin print boots and sandals are eye-popping statement pieces that will level up any summer outfit, be it a dress or a T-shirt and shorts.

Look sultry in green snake skin print

If you're ready to embrace a serpent vibe, forget the neutral snake skin print and go green. What better way to do this in the summer than with a dress? If you're going out at night, a green bodycon dress with heels will make you a standout. A maxi dress in this pattern worn with booties or sandals will do for brunch or any other informal outing. Add a fun bag and your favorite pair of sunglasses to finish your look.
