Animal Attraction: High End to High Street

Burberry Prorsum Quilted Leather Satchel ($2,695) / Accessorize Maddy Stag Across Body ($62)

Now that the month-long run of international fashion weeks is over, it's time to forget about next spring and focus on the here and now.

Leave the leopard print to the amateurs. This season, we're in for a new kind of animal attraction. Whether it's jungle predators stalking across sweaters or woodland critters popping out of handbags, fall fashion has been taken over by creatures great and small.

Lucky for us, fast fashion has caught on, and a little piece of the animal kingdom can be had at any price point. After the jump, you'll find more on-trend luxe items and their lower-priced counterparts, from tiger knits to kitty flats and everything in between.
