Snakeskin + Denim: 2 Very Different Ways To Wear One Of The Hottest Fall Trends

Whether you’re into it or not (we certainly are) snakeskin is all the rage for fall! From Prada to Chloé, many fashion houses used it as a focal point in their collections, and from what we gather, when it comes to styling more is definitely more. However, we know that not everyone is comfortable sporting straight off the runway looks so we’ve put together two very distinct ways to rock this trend on the streets without looking like you’re trying too hard. Whether soft and earthy or tough and hard there’s definitely a way to wear snakeskin for everyone this season. Which will you wear?

Sass & Bide Jeans Summer and Pre-Fall 2011

Australian fashion label Sass & Bide has proven they are certainly not one-hit wonders.  Firmly established as a coveted denim brand, loved the world over by celebrities and stylish people, there will be plenty to go around for Spring-Summer 2011, including a taste of their Pre-Fall 2011 collection.  If you’re looking to spice things up in your wardrobe, then Sass & Bide’s “papa-sucre” collection won’t disappoint.  You’ll find some muted color denim, tie-dye, and graphic jeans; there are jeans for every taste.  Now a worldwide brand, Sass & Bide has not lost its Australian identity, what with huge references to desert themes and Aboriginal tribal influences, every piece is urban runway worthy and stands up on its own.  We were pleased with the abundance of denim in this collection.  Take a look at some of our favorite picks or view the entire Sass & Bide denim collection in the gallery.

Style: Slouchy Denim Shorts

Hey boys, don’t cry, girls just wanna have fun!  We can’t help that we love the slouchy ease and look of boyfriend jeans.  So maybe it’s getting a little annoying that we beg, borrow and steal your jeans for our selfish fashionable reasons, but there’s just nothing like the feeling of worn-in, naturally distressed, buttery soft denim jeans.

Ladies, let’s give our boos a break and invest in a pair of our own slouchy denim shorts (without the DIY trashing of your man’s favorite worn-in jeans).  Still fresh and more popular than ever for the sunshiny season to strut, frolick or lounge around in.  As usual, these denim shorties can be worn in multiple ways for multiple occasions so, get your slouchy denim jeans on!

Sass & Bide Boyfriend DNM Shorts

Sass & Bide Boyfriend Denim Shorts, $295.00

Perfectly distressed, torn and cuffed slouchy jeans.  Vamp it up with mile high heels or for a more vintage rough and tumble look, pull on a pair of cowboy boots…hee-haw!


j crew denim2

J. Crew Denim Cut-off Short, $79.50

Faded, sheared and distressed just enough to make you feel like they’ve been worn for years.  Wear them with a romantic top and wedge heels for a softened up boyish look.


AE Slouchy Denim Bermuda Shorts

AE Slouchy Denim Bermuda Shorts $34.95

These slouchy light wash denim bermuda shorts are a staple for the girl on the move.  Wear it with ease, perfect with a neutral colored sandal and t-shirt.


Gap Trouser JEan CutoffsGap Trouser JEan Cutoffs2

Gap Trouser Jean Cutoffs, $34.65

A slightly slouchy trouser silhouette, with just enough distressing. Pair these with a fitted blazer, statement necklace and stack heels for a chic polished look.

Sass & Bide, the Australian duo, Sarah-Jane Clarke (Sass) and Heidi Middleton (Bide), have risen to rock star status ever since they first launched their line in 1999.  They are well on their way of global domination with their no holds barred fashion sensibility. Sassy, edgy, free-styling bohemian has been their golden ticket to the avid followers of their denim and clothing line.  

In an interview with Vogue UK, “The Cracker Jacs, Neon Nights and Starting Something are our take on old faithful – great fabrics and fits. We’ve given them enough of an edge to make them new again,” explain the design duo, of the harem-pant styles and updated jean shape which have been flying off the rails at NET-A-PORTER.COMHarvey Nichols and ASOS.COM.

Celebrations are in order as their successful label marks their 10th year anniversary. Every fashionable girl should own a Sass & Bide.  If you want to bring sexy back, this is the way to go.
