Although temperatures seem to be continually rising in Denver, designers are already thinking ahead to chillier days. The easiest trend to get a head start on for fall: animal print. (If you're me, it's already a wardrobe staple.) While designers have been focused on head-to-toe looks using everything from leopard spots (3.1 Phillip Lim, Lanvin) to cow print (Givenchy), that's probably overkill for most of us. Instead, add just one of these pieces to your closet and wear it now—or wait until the mercury dips.
