Like a shot of vodka chased with a shot of cranberry juice, trends also have chasers. So as we look from the bar to the wild, we’ll now see snakeskin chasing leopard print. The resurgence of leopard print is like the strong punch of vodka, and the snakeskin the subtle cranberry juice that follows.

Could we perhaps even ever expect a collaboration of leopard print and snakeskin, in one outfit? Perhaps creating a super primal look?
