Today’s trends are anything but straightforward, with belly chains, sporty gym shorts, and upside-down bikinis all making waves. Ensuring that your wardrobe is up to date can often mean searching for shoppable items in a sea of puzzling options. Where does one actually buy a belly chain? What differentiates regular gym shorts from fashionable gym shorts? Is shopping for an upside-down bikini as difficult as wearing one? Our new column Sourced answers all your market-related questions, as well as offer you an endless source of styles that will make snagging today’s top trends easy, so you can spend your precious time learning about the next wave of trends. 
Finally, after what feels like years of leopard-print fashion, a new leader has arrived, and it's coming for your swimsuit drawer. On Wednesday, following the release of Dua Lipa’s “Love Again” music video, for which she wore a zebra-print bikini, global fashion shopping platform Lyst reported a 15% increase in search for zebra-print pieces. Search for Lipa’s string bikini Attico top, which was recently also worn by Hailey Bieber, was up 224% since the beginning of the month. 
In our experience, spikes like that can only mean one thing: Zebra-print bikinis are about to be everywhere. Faithfull The Brand, ViX, Reina Olga, and more Instagram-favorite swimwear labels are already stocking their virtual shelves with black-and-white-stripe bikinis of all styles, shapes, and cuts. Mint Swim, Montce, and Lisa Marie Fernandez, too, are hopping on board the trend. 
In order to allow you to do the same, we rounded up 12 zebra-print bikinis like Lipa’s for you to shop, ahead.
