After I wrote about fall’s color-blocking and snakeskin/print trends for the Huffington Post’s Styelist site last month, I said to myself, “Self, a trend story isn’t really a trend story without one of my awesome blogger slideshows.” I immediately started working on a snake-print and color-blocking slideshow. Luckily, I didn’t rush it because I got to photograph some stellar examples of both trends in person at the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference on September 7. Those IFB pictures — as well as bloggers’ own photos — are in my latest Styelist post, which went live yesterday. Color-blocking Kuwaiti blogger LadyB (no relation to WendyB) got so excited about it, she lost her head, as you can see below.
LadyB is wearing a Topshop blazer, palazzo pants from Mango (she calls them her “latest addiction, quite perfect for our blazing hot summer”) and — hitting the snakeskin trend as well as color-blocking — a pair of yellow python pumps from Reiss. If LadyB had a head, she would say, “Go see the blogger slideshow on Stylelist right now!”
Whenever I do one of these blogger fashion roundups, I find a couple of great people a little too late for publication. I want to share them anyway. Here is Anika of By Anika in a snake-print H&M dress that she turned into a jacket …
… and Fashion and Frank in a snake-print dress. Love the hat!
And check out RosiePop’s DOUBLE snake print!
I keep walking by an H&M store that is promoting a snake-print dress for $14.99, so if you want to get in on the Slytherin look for a low, low price, that’s the place to go. You can see more than one H&M dress in action in the Styelist slideshow. Don’t forget to leave a nice comment on Stylelist for the slideshow participants, who are:
- Christine of My Style Pill
- Monroe of Fashion Steele NYC
- Aimee of Song of Style
- Jennine of The Coveted
- Keely of Casual Chic Kiki
- Alexis of North on Harper
- Megan of Megan Mae Daily
- Megan of The Frugalista Diaries
- Lydia of Chic on the Cheap
- Vahni of Grit & Glamour
- Dionne of I.D.E.A.L.
- Rocquelle P. of Consider Me Lovely
- Alison of Wardrobe Oxygen
- Lisa of Solo Lisa
- Tanvi of The Fabulous Life of the Not-So-Rich and Infamous
- Brett of Silvergirl
If you wear a snake-print or color-block outfit in the near future, send a photo of yourself to wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, because I’ll probably do some follow-up posts here. I’m still interested in mullet dresses/skirts, so hit me up with pictures of those too. In fact, a mullet post is coming soon, so make haste. You should also follow me on Twitter, because I sometimes ask for trend-story contributions there.
