5 Days of Snakeskin Skinnies: Day 2

November 6, 2012 by Trina 14 Comments

For Day 2 of the snakeskin skinnies, we’re going casual.

I started by adding my purple microrib tank from Target.  I have abut 10 of these tanks in different colors.  I love them and wear them under just about everything, even in winter.  Next I added a black cardi and my black booties then topped the whole ensemble off with a printed scarf from Shoplately.

I wanted to show you how easy print mixing is using snakeskin.  It’s not as hard as it might seem because really the snakeskin is so subtle that it acts as a neutral.  The trick is to make sure that there is at least one color in common and the tones are complimentary.

tank: Target, cardi: Kohl’s {similar}, scarf: Shoplately, ring: Wet Seal, booties: Seychelles {I can’t find these booties anywhere online anymore, but I love these wedge booties by Nine West}, skinnies:  Dressbarn {similar here, here and here, plus size here}

What do you think of this look?  Do you like snakeskin paired with other prints?

Check out Day 1, Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5 if you missed them!


  1. I’d absolutely wear this. I see what you mean about similar colors pulling it together.

  2. I love the pants!

  5. I really like this look and yes I do think mixing the prints like you did really works with the look you have going on. It’s a really cute look and love that scarf! I really like your hair the way you’re wearing it now- looks like you have let the right side grow out some since it’s looking longer than it used to, it is so you :) Just love your hair! I am looking forward to your other snakeskin looks. See Trina you just have us coming back for more, anticipating your new look from one day to the next, LOL!

    • I just love your comments Lou, such great feedback! Thank you my friend! I am letting it grow some, I’ve even been wearing it in a ponytail some :)

  6. By far this is my fave. I love the way you have a talent of mixing prints into something user friendly. I also love the longer hair. Looking good, girl!

  7. Absolutely love the purple and the scarf. I can see it’s going to be difficult to choose a favorite…
