Snake-effect leather has been on the rise for some time now. But if the daunting print never seemed like something you would consider, Bella Hadid just proved it's not as difficult as it seems. And because you can always rely on the supermodel to serve up street style looks, it's worth noting that the snakeskin leather pants featured in her latest ensemble just topped the list of trends to try.
On Jan. 15, the It-girl roamed around Paris for Mens Fashion Week in an outfit best described as '90s cool. For the festivities the youngest Hadid sister opted for a pair of snakeskin leather pants from emerging Belgian-based brand Léo's Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Made of faux snakeskin, the affordable trousers are cut for a straight leg silhouette with an inner side slit that allows you to move freely. And while Hadid's look is certainly edgy, it just further proves that the Western print is no longer reserved for your boot collection.
By now, it's pretty safe to say that the middle Hadid sister is partial to the standout motif, having worn a collection of jackets, footwear, and bags of the same design. But the main takeaway of every snakeskin look is that less is more; so be sure to keep the styling simple when trying it out. Just follow the It girl's lead by wearing yours with pared back basics.
As a nod to the late '90s and early aughts, she opted for a basic white tank, with a chunky Louis Vuitton chain necklace, and gold hoops. While on the other hand, her lightly-tinted Chanel sunglasses and tan suede shoulder bag by ByFAR compliment the nostalgic feel, perfectly. She finished the look with chunky sneakers from trending Chinese label Li-Ning. The White Furious Rider Ace 1.5 trainer, $167, is a price-friendly combination of the lug sole trend we've seen all season mixed with the chunky dad shoe look that's still going strong.
Though the dangerously sleek pair are sold out in most sizes, don't let that stop you from recreating the look. Below are a list of TZR's favorite styles that are sure to do the trick.
