After I wrote about fall’s color-blocking and snakeskin/print trends for the Huffington Post’s Styelist site last month, I said to myself, “Self, a trend story isn’t really a trend story without one of my awesome blogger slideshows.” I immediately started working on a snake-print and color-blocking slideshow. Luckily, I didn’t rush it because I got to photograph some stellar examples of both trends in person at the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference on September 7.  Those IFB pictures — as well as bloggers’ own photos — are in my latest Styelist post, which went live yesterday. Color-blocking Kuwaiti blogger LadyB (no relation to WendyB) got so excited about it, she lost her head, as you can see below.

The headless color-blocking woman of Kuwait.

LadyB is wearing a Topshop blazer, palazzo pants from Mango (she calls them her “latest addiction, quite perfect for our blazing hot summer”) and — hitting the snakeskin trend as well as color-blocking — a pair of yellow python pumps from Reiss. If LadyB had a head, she would say, “Go see the blogger slideshow on Stylelist right now!”


Whenever I do one of these blogger fashion roundups, I find a couple of great people a little too late for publication. I want to share them anyway. Here is Anika of By Anika in a snake-print H&M dress that she turned into a jacket …

… and Fashion and Frank in a snake-print dress. Love the hat!

And check out RosiePop’s DOUBLE snake print!

I keep walking by an H&M store that is promoting a snake-print dress for $14.99, so if you want to get in on the Slytherin look for a low, low price, that’s the place to go. You can see more than one H&M dress in action in the Styelist slideshow. Don’t forget to leave a nice comment on Stylelist for the slideshow participants, who are:

If you wear a snake-print or color-block outfit in the near future, send a photo of yourself to wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, because I’ll probably do some follow-up posts here. I’m still interested in mullet dresses/skirts, so hit me up with pictures of those too. In fact, a mullet post is coming soon, so make haste. You should also follow me on Twitter, because I sometimes ask for trend-story contributions there.

    I must be the only one who hates colour blocking. I pretty much never wear colour and if I do it’s always with black or grey. I think I’m scared, also black works. The snake print however, I love. My mum remembers the snake print jersey frock she made for me when I was in primary school but alas no photo exists. Dam.

    I love the picture of Anika working the snakeprint and leopard. Love! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog, you are hilarious and I have to work on my mingling skills. I get caught up in having deep meaningful conversations with like 2 people when I should be working the room! Must take lessons from Bella. If there is a NYC blogger meet-up let me know, I will be there. We could all go look at Daphne’s clothes (amazing) or check out the hats at the Bard Graduate Center exhibition.

  5. Anika does animal prints like nobody’s business! Though she doesn’t have a head, Lady B’s color blocking is on point.

    I’m always a bit scared of snake print as it was so big in the 1990s and I’m wary of looking like a throwback but these ladies look GORGEOUS!
    I bought a 1960s snakeskin choker today, do you think that’ll count? x

  7. Anika says:

  12. Thanks again for including me, Wendy! Your forecasts and predictions are always spot-on. You should be in trend forecasting and jewelry making.

    I’ve been more and more eager to wear colorblocked outfits all of the time. Although, true be told, I’m still a little too nervous to wear a bright on top and bottom! My most recent bright-colored adventure was to wear a pair of red pants: http://style-obsession.blogspo.....itted.html. And you know what? I love ’em.
