Snakeskin print mini dress, shoes, and accessories

One of the big fashion trends of the spring is animal print, which is why it makes perfect sense to see the singer rocking a snake print outfit. From head to toe, Rihanna makes this print look good, which doesn’t surprise us in the least.

Perhaps what makes this overall snake print work so well is that fact that it is not overpowering. Sure, she is wearing it literally from head to toe, but the fact that it is a mini dress means that the skin she is showing breaks up the print enough to make her look elegant and sleek.

While the dress Rihanna is wearing is strapless, the one I chose is more of a tank dress. This stunning bodycon mini dress still gives you the same look and feel as the one the singer wore, but at just $28 from Boohoo, it is a true steal. Since it comes in a red snake print as well, you could grab both colors and have some fun.

Another important aspect of this look is the heels, and while we didn’t find a pair with the strap at the ankle that work with our inspired dress, we think the pumps we found are perfect. Not only can these BCBGeneration Lenny Pumps work with the snake print dress we found, but you could also wear them with a little black dress or even jeans. And at $69.99, they won’t break the bank.

Although Rihanna paired her dress and heels with a matching handbag and hat, we don’t think that is necessary in this case (but you certainly can if you want). Instead, if you want to wear a hat, perhaps try a solid color, like a black or gray. Just like the singer went with a simple box clutch, we would opt for the same, but in a plain black or white.
