Animal print accessories are major right now. I splurged on these python boots that seem to be, in some variation, everywhere… Initially I wanted them in black embossed croc and since I didn’t scratch that itch, I just can’t go on living without acquiring something of the sort.
Ok, let’s just take a moment here to talk about embossed crocodile.
It is versatile! It goes from day to night effortlessly, especially something small.
It is timeless and classic. Have you seen vintage croc clutches from the 50’s and 60’s? They are completely relevant today, so much so that designers are designing them to look vintage. Oh and how about a crocodile Kelly bag? Beyond.
Incorporating a croc piece into your wardrobe adds instant dimension and a lady-like element to most any outfit. Picture this, a monochromatic grey knit look: a sweater, belted over knit pants or straight leg denim, topped with this brown embossed belt bag and you’ve just added instant sophistication to an otherwise everyday outfit.
Here are just a few of the amazing options I found on my search. All titles are linked below!
Hermès Kelly Crocodile Alligator Skin Shoulder Bag
This gorgeous pre-owned Kelly bag is combination crocodile and alligator. It is real and it is an investment. This vintage beauty deserves a moment.
Frankie Shop Mini Shoulder Purse in Embossed Croc
It doesn’t hold much but it sure is cute and has a long strap for wearing as a crossbody or knotted and tied over your shoulder. Bonus: its on sale for $49!
Women’s Cabria Ankle Boots
These are a staple in solid and even better in croc. They are on sale and almost sold out.
ASOS DESIGN 2 pack croc and tan waist and hip belt
A big belt does wonders for jeans, a knit dress or layering over a knit cardigan and silk cami. These two come as a set and I especially like the narrow buckle on the black one and that the set is only $23 on Asos.
Maison Boinet Croc-Effect Leather Belt
Chic with its circular gold hardware and rich brown tone. Also an amazing price on sale!
You may already know I am obsessed with a rich marigold hue. Now give it to me in an off the shoulder, wide belted, jacquard croc pattern and I am done. Sign me up Sally LaPointe.
Wear em with gold (above, ahem), light blue denim or white when its warm out. These are hot.
An affordable version of the Celine Vertical Cabas tote.
STAUD Billie croc-effect wedge mules
Headed to a warm weather destination? These babies are right for lunch or dinner with straight leg denim. Perhaps even by the pool if you’re feeling fancy.
Ampersand As Apostrophe Sideways tote in Croc Noir Matte
The tote I have been coveting since first stumbling upon it! The perfect size, shape and comes with a detachable inner pouch that doubles as a clutch.
