When Kim Kardashian wears something, you take note. When Rihanna wears something, you take note. But when both Kim Kardashian and Rihanna wear something, it's surely a sign of something bigger. Case in point? Snake-effect pants, which are inevitably going to be a huge trend for spring.
Kardashian wore a pair out on a date night with Kanye West back in February — before he was in the doghouse — and I went on a mad dash (pun intended) to try and emulate the sleek but casual look.
I ended up with a pair from ASOS which snowballed into me wanting every pair that my eyes (and rampant online shopping addiction) came in contact with. Then, Rihanna wore a custom pair by Elisabeth Weinstock to Coachella — accented with a Gucci sweater and ski mask, naturally — and the Google Trends chart for snakeskin pants sky-rocketed, meaning that everyone else was about to hop on this train as well.
The slithery style is a favorite of festival-friendly sites like Dolls Kill and Missguided, but polished upscale options are just as fun, especially when paired with a super-on-trend tube top or skinny sunglasses.
Into a different member of the animal kingdom? Here are some leopard-print options. Pants-averse? We also included some skirts and dresses. Happy shopping! 🐍
