7 Ways to Wear a Snakeskin Dress Like a Style Star

It’s not easy to look elegant in yards and yards of snakeskin. Maybe that’s why we don’t see a lot of women flocking to shopping malls to buy snakeskin dresses whenever this trend makes a comeback.

A snakeskin dress will always be a little tricky to pull off. If you decide to wear one, make sure it is the right piece for you.

Try to learn from the following celebrities who have picked the right snakeskin dress for themselves:

1. Jennifer Lopez in Dsquared2 Snakeskin Micro Dress (Full Story)

The naysayers would probably say that this look is too much. But Jennifer Lopez pulled off this head-to-toe DSQUARED2 snakeskin ensemble with aplomb. It would have looked daunting if it was a cringe-worthy gray snakeskin ensemble. The vibrant blue color saved it and made it look like the singer was making a statement.

2. Myleene Klass in Snakeskin Dress

Myleene Klass just loves wading in the snakeskin dress trend! It’s her turf, but this particular dress from her own clothing collection is one of her best looks. The wrap style is so classic and fitting for the actress’ age.

3. Lucy Hale in Blush-Toned Stella McCartney Dress

Speaking of age, isn’t the snakeskin dress trend a little too off-putting to look at on the younger generation? Sometimes, yes, but not with the right dress choice. Lucy Hale herself was adorable in her blush-toned Stella McCartney dress. The shift-style frock has a youthful vibe, making it easy to see past the intimidating snakeskin.

4. Suki Waterhouse in Python-Skin Trench Coat Dress (Full Story)

A snakeskin dress is already hard enough to wear, how much more a dress coat? That’s not a problem with British actress Suki Waterhouse, though. For a fashion event, that Burberry coat did a lot in keeping her noticeably stylish.

5. Gabriella Wilde in Gucci Mini Shift Dress

We’re seeing a pattern here. A mini shift dress is actually universally flattering. Gabriella Wilde wore one from Gucci and rocked it with a leather jacket. Snakeskin plus leather? That’s a little tough to beat.

6. Miley Cyrus in Whipsnake and Perforated Leather Dress (Full Story)

Miley Cyrus’ pre-“Wrecking Ball” fashion was already edgy. But she still managed to retain a semblance of sweetness in her mixed-media Proenza Schouler dress featuring a barely noticeable patch of snakeskin-print leather. She completed the outfit with her favorite white platform pumps.
