Snakeskin was all over the runway for fall 2011 fashion.  From Prada to Gucci to Chloe’, this in your face print is sleek, sexy and very bold.  Maybe you’re having issues (as many do) with how to wear the print without overdoing it.  Maybe you don’t think you can pull off the bright blue snake print that strutted down Gucci’s runway for fall.  Or perhaps you can’t quite afford the Gucci look or simply don’t know where to begin in order to integrate this fall essential print into your wardrobe.  Well, I have some great ways to accessorize and plan your outfit and look put together and chic for a mere fraction of the price.

Below is a pick of my favorite ten faux snakeskin accessories and pieces for fall and they are all under fifty bucks.  Take your wardrobe up a notch by playing around with this print in different ways for your looks this season and you’ll remain on trend without going overboard with your wallet or with your look.

The Audrey Brooke snake pump is a must have this season. They’re on sale at DSW right now for less than 30 bucks and they are a perfect essential for all of your wardrobe needs this season.  Simple and fundamental, they work with jeans and pants as well as skirts and dresses. You can wear these with a pair of fishnets and a pencil skirt to really take your whole outfit up a notch.  You’ll look sexy, polished and trendy.

Sunny Leigh’s snakeskin printed a-line skirt at Macy’s is a great way to introduce snake into your wardrobe in a fun and fashionable way.  Pair this skirt with a simple top, some chunky jewelry and a solid peep toe pump for a professional look.

Forever 21 has a great shallow neckline printed snake top that will go great with skinny jeans and boots, leggings or a skirt.  Play around with the look.

Charlotte Russe introduces metallic into their snakeskin top.  The result is eye catching and fun. This top would be great for a night out on the town, a date or a casual Friday.  You can definitely dress it up or down to your liking.

Macy’s also brings it home with Haskell’s snake skin bangle.  It comes in basic brown as well as eye popping teal which is a great fall favorite color.

When worse comes to worse, just wear the snake itself. Ok, not itself but you can look like you are.   Guess has devious snake bracelet that coils itself around your wrist. Crafted in hematite tone mixed metal with sparkling AB crystals and jet crystals it sparkles and shines at every angle.  They also have a matching ring…if you dare!

Newport News has a stretch pair of metallic snake print leggings that are to die for.  Partnered with an asymmetrical cut jersey or woven top you will be making bold statements for sure.  Add a chain link belt to really dramatize the look even a little further.

Old Navy has an awesome pair of snakeskin printed ballet flats that will jazz up any casual outfit.  Add a scarf thrown around your neck with your skinny jeans, some chunky earrings and a draped top and you’ll be ready to go anywhere.

Victoria’s Secret as usual plays it sexy with their snakeskin print tunic top  with side ruching.  If you really want to take it over the top, play with their python embossed leggings.  With ruching and ankle zips, you’ll demand attention with every step you take. By the way, the two will look incredible together!!

The Nine West zipster snakeskin printed pouch is great to sling across your waist and it will secure your identification, money and more when you’re going out for a night on the town or just traveling.  It is truly the perfect accessory.

Don’t be afraid to wear prints ladies.  Just put them together correctly and the result will be amazing.  You’ll surely draw the eyes of all around you when you’re stepping out in style, representing the trend hard and looking like you spent a ton.  It’ll be our little secret that you didn’t.
