Watch out, leopard — there's a new animal print in town and it's about to pop up everywhere. Kendall Jenner's zebra pants are proof the up-and-coming print has officially made its way into the celebrity realm, meaning it's time to add it to your personal lineup, too. Perhaps you've worn out your leopard faux fur, or maybe you're beginning to feel the soles on your snakeskin booties wearing thin. So, why not let all things zebra take the reigns this season?

If you've been keeping a close eye on celebrity appearances at New York Fashion Week, you may have noticed that Jenner sightings have been few and far between. Aside from showing face at the Longchamp show on Sat., fans have been relying on her more casual street-style looks for that sought-after fashion week inspiration.

The model was photographed leaving the Mercer Hotel in Manhattan on Feb. 11 in a fierce yet simple outfit. The statement of the look was undoubtedly her zebra-print velvet pants by New York City-based brand, Autobody. The black-and-white bottoms feature an ankle-length hem and a high waist, perfectly suited for her cropped black puffer by Balenciaga. She topped off the laid-back look with a pair of Yeezy Wave Runners, designed by her famous brother-in-law, Kanye West, and a '90s-inspired, patent leather shoulder bag by Insta-famous label, By Far.

It's no secret that Jenner is known for her trendsetting nature. Whether she's experimenting with hair clips, an unexpected manicure color, or clip-in bangs, fans and followers count on the 23-year-old to establish a certain style standard.

Next on her list? Zebra print. Similar to its cousins, leopard and snakeskin, this daring design is the ultimate statement. And as demonstrated by Jenner, all you need is a black puffer and sneakers to make a pair of zebra pants look effortlessly cool.

Take it up a notch by pairing a zebra-print blouse with a polka-dot skirt, plaid trousers, or even leopard-print shoes. While the print is obviously bold, styling it as you would a neutral is always an easy approach.
