Sometimes spotting an emerging trend is as easy as simply doing a little shopping. When you start to see various brands selling a recurring motif, you may very well have a trend on your hands. Case in point: zebra-print shoes.
You may have heard that animal print is back in a big way for fall 2016, but you probably couldn’t have guessed that brands would be revisiting bold zebra print–emblazoned shoes just like the ones you wore last decade. Yet it’s not exactly surprising, given the resurgence of early-2000s trends that have been cropping up as of late. Brands are doing a modern take on the print by using it on updated shoe styles like backless mules, “ugly” sandals, and ladylike block-heel slingbacks. We love that it’s a naturally neutral and chic print, given the black-and-white color scheme. As a true testament to its resurgence, trendsetting powerhouse Gucci has even made over multiple styles with the graphic print.
