Snakeskin prints are considered a neutral by many and therefore can be paired with almost any color. Traditional snakeskin colors look good with this season's bright orange and green, as well as pastels such as peach and mint.

Designers have taken note of the Year of Snake by incorporating serpentine inspiration into their apparel and accessories, said Sofia Wacksman, vice president of trend for Kohl's Department Stores.

“If you're feeling bold, go all out with a brightly colored snakeskin-print top or wrap dress,” she said. “If you prefer only a hint of the trend, mix in accessories like a snake motif ring or snakeskin clutch.”
