Snake Print Makes A Cameo At the Beach
If there's one thing we learned from last week's Resort '19 runway shows, it's that prints reign. From classic to exotic, patterns take center stage in upcoming seasons and transition to beachwear just right. And snake is taking on its own category with fine to large-scale renditions, tonal to high-contrast coloring in photorealism, to illustrated versions we are totally adoring. Check out the runway designers repping this trend and the beachwear brands ahead of the trend.
There's something about Roberto Cavalli's signature exotic vibe that feels updated. The realistic rattlesnake print reads free-spirited desert child instead of the brand's expected sexy-vixen flair — you bet, we're all about it.
The Cavalli Group let out another snakeskin print in a very different extra-large scale that feels young and fun. The unexpected styling, pairing the bold pattern with mismatched pop-color shades and spring socks, is one to turn heads.
What once was Acacia's staple lining now becomes the outer print of the bikini and it's no surprise — people dig it and they deliver. Winning!
For a funky take on this trend, go big with color. Though it feels like streetwear, which happens to be super trending, it's actually beachwear. Wear as a bodysuit and swimsuit — two for one.

There's no doubt snakeskin can be extra freaky and here's proof. Partnered with risqué strappy details and a micro triangle top, this print is taken to sexy heights.
