Fall Trend Alert: Snake Print

Autumn is arriving slowly but surely in Austin — temperatures have finally dropped a few degrees, pumpkin spice is back at all the campus Starbucks locations and midterms are upon us. As the weather cools off and studies ramp up, keep an eye out for this season’s trending pattern: snake print.

From shoes to sweaters, snake print is sure to make repeated appearances in any fashionable student’s fall wardrobe. The versatile design comes in various neutral color combinations and appears on countless different garments, so the possibilities are endless.

As we transition seasonally from summer to fall, it’s important to make the necessary updates to your wardrobe, but it is equally important not to break the bank. Opt for investing in a few key items that can piece together any look.
