I used to think that snakeskin was only for accessories. For shiny coats and Birkins that cost more than a car. That was until I got to road test a pair of Current Elliot skinny jeans from online designer boutique The Editeur. In a pale canvas snakeskin print, the Ankle Skinny, as it’s called, is a surprisingly versatile jean, as I discovered when Helen and I took to the streets of London to make like the Sartorialist and snap these babies in their natural habitat. Here they are, styled up in a quartet of looks.
Call it ironic if you want, but sometimes two doses of denim in one outfit just works. A sharp black blazer keeps this look on the right side of casual.

Neutrals and neon
Take as many variations on neutral as you want then add one zingy bright neon piece to set it all off.

Crop it like it’s hot
Make like a modern day ranch hand with jeans tucked into cowboy boots and a crop top. The nineties are back in vogue you know, so a low rise is totally acceptable – draw the line at bootcuts though.

Nothing says fierce quite like a giant feline-faced top. Pair it with snakeskin print for a outfit to take on the concrete jungle. Miaow, hiss etc.
