Hi ladies, we're almost here! Summer is coming soon... well, that's what calendar says because, until now, of sun and warm we've seen really a little! But, don't worry: the moment to lie on the beach and enjoy the sun will come soon! And, with the good season, you know, the desire to undress and show off your tan is strong, maybe made more daring by the choice of outfits, colora and fabrics that enphasize the contrast.
Skin on skin... this could be a key to understanding of one of the coolest trend of S/S 2013: python style. Traditionally worn during the f/w season, this year it's one of the hottest trends for the hottest one. Natural or colored in warm and seductive shades, mixed with patchwork and other prints or maybe on accessories, the password is only one: change skin. Just like a snake. Crawling, python print is done through the glamourest catwalks of fashion scene. From Preen to Gucci, passing by Valentino, Salvatore Ferragamo and Roberto Cavalli. The result? Ladylike and attractive, absolutely super cool!

Total look or matched with basic garments or other styles, python print has in it something sensual and transgressive, elegant and refined at the same time, chic and practical for daywear, perfect also for night characterized by a sexy and a little rock allure. Here some examples of python outfits.

My fashion tip? If you thing that a total python look is too daring (and maybe it is), dull it with basic pieces in solid colors, with accessories in bright colors or have fun mixing python pieces with othr prints, playing with contrasts, but remember to not overdo! Uncertainty, you can take inspiration by celebrities like Kerry Washington, Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively .
What do you think about? Are you ready to change your skin?
