dalmation-trainers.pngTrainers are still huge fashion items this season, and the louder and more elaborate the design, the higher you'll score. If neons and other bright colours aren't your thing, however, you can still play the game as there are some amazing monochrome patterns to be had on your sports shoes - like this fun dalmation-spot print on this style: if you heart it, it's a very reasonable £32 at River Island.

Getting in on the hi-top look, these are bold, statement-making kicks that will work well in all weathers and look great with red, black or white skinny jeans. The panels of dalmation-spot pattern give them a cute edge that will add a note of fun to your weekend look. The chunky feel of the shoe is also really working for us just now.

There are several other shoes along the same design lines on the high street at the moment, so fear not if you can't find a pair in your size. Check out also the grey animal print trainers shown here, which give a lighter take on the wild look.
