Yes, it’s true that Cruella might just inspire your style this season thanks to her obsession over dalmation print, however TellusFashion aren’t as cruel to try and kill 101 puppies to stay on trend. Thanks to Topshop Unique at last fashion week, we have pretty much fallen in love with the cutsie dalmation print and here are some ways you can wear it this season without going over your highstreet budget…

If you prefer to keep it subtle with animal prints then channel the look onto your fingernails using a matte white colour as your base (Alpine Snow by OPI) and careful dot on your spots using a plain black nail varnish (Black Onyx by OPI) and a fine nail art brush (nail art fine detail brush at essentialnails.com)
Like most girls my age, I am very limited to what I can buy fashion wise. I am a recent graduate who has yet to find my dream career in the fashion industry so I’m still living on a student budget, earning close to part-time wages. Therefore, I need to find ways to create a catwalk look at a lower cost (Luckily for me, I love the British High-Street so I still get a lot of satisfaction from buying from there).
The trend I love most this season is the ‘Fetish’ or what some call the ‘Domintarix’ trend. Personally I think it’s the fact that black is the key colour for the trend (a major trend in my wardrobe). However, this trend is not for the faint hearted and catwalk collections from the likes of Mugler presented pieces that fully represented the trend in all its glory.
I however, don’t have near enough fashion confidence to pull that off so I scoured the high-street to put together a toned down version of the trend… check out my high-street finds below and Tellus what trends you will be channeling this A/W!
Sheer Midi Dress: Vaudeville & Burlesque for Urban Outfitters, Lace Bralet: Urban Outfitters, PU Faux Leather Shorts: Topshop, Sheer Tights: H & M
The Obi Belt is the biggest belt trend of the season with the likes of Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Hugo Boss going crazy from them this summer; but you don’t need to pay designer prices to the gorgeous look.
The high street is covered with waist-clinching, gorgeous, bold and dramatic belts to really add some eastern glam your outfits this summer, whether you are wearing a tailored blazer, a flowing maxi or a casual tunic.
This gorgeous coin embellished Topshop belt is just £32 and perfect to put with any outfit to add some spice. If you prefer something simpler then why not try this tan ASOS belt for £12.
From metallics to leather there is every style and shape out there so be sure to pick your favourite one and start injecting some eastern style into your wardrobe.
