I’ll save you the wait—it’s animal print—but before you chalk this up to last fall’s leopard trend simply carrying over, let me explain why it’s so much more than that. For this season, even though leopard is still very much included in the trend’s scope, the trend has gone beyond what it was before to encompass everything from snake and croc to zebra and giraffe-inspired prints, with all kinds of styling from simple to statement-making in the mix.

To show you just how prevalent animal trend is going to be among fall 2019’s fashion set, I turned to Copenhagen’s street style from earlier in August (as it’s become the unofficial start to fashion month) to see if and how our favorite stylish Scandis were already wearing it. A quick search and over 50 animal print–inclusive images later, I rest my case. Don’t worry, I won’t make you look through all 50, just my 13 favorites along with some under-$50 animal print shopping from our very own Who What Wear collection for Target. From tops to skirts to dresses to bags, we designed everything you could possibly need to make the look yours without going a penny over budget, so just keep scrolling to get started.
