Putting The Best Outfit On Your Pet
Updated: Sep 20, 2021
You can choose the perfect attire for your animal buddy no matter what kind of pet you have or what your personal fashion style is.
You can guarantee Madonna wasn't referring about high fashion for dogs when she sang "Strike a posture" in her 1980s single "Vogue." What a transformation! Now, no matter what kind of pet you have or what your personal fashion style is, you can discover the perfect costume for your animal buddy.
For years, loving pet owners have dressed their dogs with sweaters and coats to keep them warm and dry while out walking in the rain or snow. Boots can protect dogs' paws from the caustic salt used to melt ice on sidewalks, keeping them warm and dry.
Pet design has shifted from practical to whimsical in recent years, courtesy to high-profile Chihuahuas like Paris Hilton's Tinkerbell and films like Legally Blonde and Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
If you have a favorite sports team, your dog can wear a bandana, football jersey, varsity jacket, or baseball cap with your team's insignia to join you on the couch or at your next tailgating (!!) party.
Do you want to take Fido to the beach with you? In his Hawaiian print board shorts and sunglasses, he'll be one wicked dude....and don't forget the doggy sunscreen! Do you want to go sailing? Fido can wear a weather-resistant squall jacket with reflective binding similar to the one you'll be wearing if the weather turns stormy while you're out on the water. Dress Fido in jeans or stylish camouflage pants and bring him to the coffee shop with you. If you're going for a ride, don't forget to dress Fido or Fluffy in matching leathers with the Harley Davidson emblem on them.
Are you looking for something to wear for a more festive occasion? From simple rhinestone-studded collars to tuxedos, top hats, satin dresses, and tiaras, you may dress up your pet. Sparkling jeweled necklaces, some made with semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals and priced accordingly, can be ordered or custom fashioned to complement any attire. Coach and Burberry, for example, provide status-conscious pets (and their owners) the opportunity to dress to please.
Your cat may not enjoy dressing up as much as your dog, but if you're lucky enough to have a fashionista on your hands, there's plenty of options for you as well. Any article of clothes that would suit a small dog can be worn by cats. Why not get matching "Meowy Christmas" t-shirts for you and your cat this holiday season? Wrap Fluffy in a soft hooded towel or a silky robe after bath time.
Not every pet owner enjoys dressing up their pet. It should go without saying that if your dogs, cats, or ferrets are refusing to be dressed up for your enjoyment, you should not compel them to do so. However, if your pets appear to share your passion for fashion, there's no reason not to give in to your desires.
