DRESS OF THE WEEK:
PYTHON PRINT

Snakeskin: it’s the latest animal print to watch thanks to this very modern spin on the Nineties staple

If you remember the snake-print trend from the first time around, try to cast aside recollections of questionable pleather suits, micro handbags and platform boots, and consider instead this sophisticated chiffon maxi. It’s roomy enough to layer over a ribbed polo neck and opaque tights, and light enough to slip under a coat. And then there’s the print itself: grown-up python, and in a surprisingly versatile palette. If you’re headed to the office, team with a circular ring-handle bag for maximum style points. If you’re jetting off for winter sun (lucky thing), just add sandals to rework the dress as a breezy beach cover-up. After all, if a trend makes a comeback, it’s usually for a good reason.
