Fall 2010 Trend to Wear Now: Exotic Skins

 

When Candy Pratts Price speaks, I listen, so when she called out exotic skins as a major accessories story for fall 2010, I found the perfect excuse to grab the pair of Jenni Kayne snakeskin sling-backs I’d been visiting two to six times daily. Rationalization #2? Splurging on summer shoes makes sense because warm-weather wardrobes aren’t reliant on investment pieces like coats and boots. Most importantly though, python and reptile-print sandals and flats (like the Tory Burch Reva in faux snake) elevate summer’s key basics—see slouchy shorts, oversized button-downs, and striped tees—like nothing else, adding that element of exotic glamour that keeps things from feeling too bland or sloppy.
