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 the perfect throw-on-and-go piece to beat the heat without automatically reverting to cotton shorts and tees. Then there’s the print itself: grown-up python, and in a surprisingly versatile palette. If you’re heading to the office, team with a circular ring-handle bag for maximum style points. Just add sandals and a swimsuit 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.
