Animal print is everywhere this season, but there’s something about crocodile print that we can’t get over. Maybe it’s the understated nature of the pattern or the subtle elegance it brings to any outfit, but our wishlists are full of croc pieces this fall.
Boots are a popular statement piece this fall, with new brand Paris Texas making quite a splash. When you see their knee-high, block-heel boots in a variety of colors, you’ll immediately understand why. Their chocolate brown pair feels especially timeless, and will look stunning with one of this season’s long skirts and oversized knitwear. If you feel like peacocking a little bit, take a look at the silver pair.
Looking for something a little more wearable? Vince has a pair of black crocodile combat boots that are a great way to get out of your ankle boot rut. Mansur Gavriel’s loafers will dress up any jeans and t-shirt outfit. And because fashion still loves sneakers, Via Spiga has a pair of slip-on sneakers in black croc.
Another great way to work croc into your wardrobe? Purses. A crocodile purse can take you through the next few years and (like us) will only get better with age. Staud’s built a reputation for itself with stylish, affordable bags and you’ve probably seen their purses all over Instagram. This season the bags are updated versions of the lady-who-lunch purses from years past, like this angular large Rey bag. Mansur Gavriel has a tote bag that works just as well for work as it does for play. And if you really want to invest in the trend, Saint Laurent’s Monogram bag is a piece you’ll use for the rest of your life.
