Following my last Ways to Wear post about the Dalmatian trend, some readers voiced a worry about feeling too OTT in faux fur or even just adopting a new trend that not everyone would quite “get”. But don’t fret; I’ve filmed a tutorial about a sweet, throwaway Way to tap into the trend without feeling like you’ve tried too hard.
Team your cutesy new manicure with a leather clutch for maximum impact or to take the Look further, keep your clothing monochrome and add colour with lipstick.
Hope you liked this little style tutorial, let me know what you think or if you’ve tried Dalmatian nail art in the comments below!

Ways to Wear: Dalmatian Print
The sweeter, younger sister of the ever-present leopard print trend, Topshop Unique commanded attention at London Fashion Week A/W11 with their Dalmatian print. Inspired by Disney’s 101 Dalmatians - such a classic film! - Topshop Unique sent their models down the runway complete with blackened noses, the softest of jumpers, cutesy 50’s-esque hair buns… Even the nails got full attention!
Personally, I’m in love with this trend: I want it to replace leopard completely, but alas, we can’t have it all. There’s something so ladylike, prim and sophisticated about Dalmatian print, and it can add such depth and a real texture to an outfit. As well as that, it is absolutely adorable and so fun, which is what fashion and style is about, right?
