Snakeskin made its way onto our feeds this fall, when all of the Insta girls discovered its cool versatility: Some sartorial risk-takers wore the print head-to-toe, while the minimalist-leaning crowd went for a simple python boot upgrade. But now that the weather is warming up, we can no longer count on the animal print to spruce up a tired sweater-jean combo; nor can we continue to lock up our limbs in comforting layers of clothes. Instead, we must turn to sleeveless tops, dresses, flow-y skirts and — for the hot and not-bothered — swimwear.
On bikinis and one-pieces, the boa-inspired pattern maintains a neutral disposition while adding a bit of fun to your standard beachwear. For those looking to blend in with the sand, there are a number of classic snakeskin suits that boast a color palette of grays or browns. But for those looking to attract the attention of fellow pool-dwellers, brands like Off-White offer a neon yellow take on the trending print. Highlighter hues aside, you can also make a big splash this summer in a cheekily-cut, snakeskin-covered one-piece, or in a safari-ready high-waisted, belted bikini bottom, both of which you can find in the gallery below, along with several other statement-making snakeskin swimsuits.
