ANIMAL PRINT (JUST WON'T STOP)
If you're having a hard time keeping up with all the different animal prints - it's because there's a lot of it out there in the market right now. Leopard, tiger, snake, and cow print are the key ones to know - in dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, and bags. And designers are mixing up the traditional animal print color palette of neutrals with bright and unexpected accents.

Long live the utility trend, as we see the cargo pant shed its unfashionable roots and bloom into one of the season's key bottom profiles. This style fits perfectly into sports and active assortments, as well as a bridge to more formal attire. Key modifications for this season are unusual pocket placement, body-flattering fits, and material upgrades including leather and satin.

Whether the real deal or faux, head-to-toe leather ensembles are very fall 2019. In particular, leather pants are getting the spotlight this week. You'll see these in jean, trouser, legging, and baggy stylings.

MANTSHO X H&M
Palesa Mokubung's South African label, Mantsho, is the latest of H&M's buzzy collabs. Her signature is all over the collection, as she calls it, "confident, effortless silhouette, its structure, and its quirkiness."
