Get charmed by these slithering motifs.

You may already be aware that National Snake Day is this July 16. That also makes it the anniversary of the blow-out feud between Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift, which plucked the holiday from relative obscurity and made it the stuff of pop culture legend.

History aside, snake motifs are trending thanks mainly to Gucci. The label loves adding slinky decorations to everything from bags to boots. There are other ways to get into the spirit of National Snake Day, too. Try a Bulgari Serpenti design, if you’re aiming for sophistication with a bite. — jas
