In fall and winter, it can be easy to fall into a muted color palette, always reaching for the dark gray and black clothing in your closet rather than pops of color. While that’s all fine and good most of the time (we love a good moody monochrome look or a chocolate brown moment), sometimes shaking it up with a bright color (if you haven’t heard, red is so in) or an interesting pattern can really add some vibrancy to your fall style.
Olivia Ponton did just that on night out in the big city this week. While her base was, in a standard fall fashion move, all black (a midi skirt and a mesh off-the-shoulder top), her chosen accessories really made her outfit pop. To the dark basics, she added a pair of leather snakeskin heeled boots and a matching snakeskin purse.
She debuted the look—a tutorial in styling snakeskin this fall—in an Instagram carousel that she posted from the evening. “all ready for a season of celebration,” she wrote in the caption.
“😍,” fellow SI Swimsuit model Olivia Dunne praised the look.
“I love the boots!🔥,” a fan said of the snakeskin touch.
While not the first time she’s proven herself capable of styling a good fall ’fit (see below for proof), it was certainly the best vibrant, statement-making look we’ve seen from her this season. Suddenly, we’re feeling inspired to incorporate more animal print into our wardrobes—and we’ll be turning to Ponton for styling inspo.
