[Topshop Loco V Throat Sandal, $50 (only available in size 8.5, 9.5, 10.5)]
Accessories in skins can transition any outfit from bland to brilliant. While head-to-toe snakeskin may be a bit much, a pop of skin on a bag or shoe is just enough for less obvious attention. These accessories can blend seamlessly with many looks starting right now and into the fall season.
However, why not take the cruelty -free approach? Animal lovers can still appreciate luxury, well-made animal-friendly accessories that are also quite budget-friendly. Try the brilliant Topshop sandal (above) now with jeans and a tank, or in the fall again with socks or black tights. Or, the House of Harlow Clutch (see below) can take you to an elegant, outdoor wedding or a casual, indoor date night when paired properly. Don’t shy away from faux exotic skin textures and prints! Let us help you master this trend while keeping your entire look in moderation check, and protecting the little critters and creatures of the world.
