Here at MFL, we love all types of animal print; leopard, zebra, tiger, crocodile. You name it, we’ve pretty much tried it. But there is one print that we have special style affection for- snakeskin.

There is something really cool and effortless about snakeskin that other prints just can’t touch. Leopard print might look glam on certain occasions but, worn the wrong way and you might just verge into Bet Lynch territory (shudder).

Snakeskin on the other hand, is more subtle, more refined and more blasé. We love!

Thankfully it is super-hot right now and investing in a piece will see you right through summer.

Here are our top five picks which are all, miraculously, under £50.

1.If you haven’t ventured into the style mecca that is Stylist Pick, you need to now. This clutch and purse set is modern, fashion forward and panelled with just the right amount of snakeskin.
