The catwalk sets the trends for us mere mortals and we know that this summer we should be wearing bold and pastel shades, as well as wearing prints – especially in trousers and jeans. Animal, floral, bold and nature prints are all big this summer. But what about coordinating our pets? Do their wardrobe trends match ours this year? And, if you want to get a new dog, which dog is the most fashionable one on the street?
Looking at online stores for animal clothes, one thing is clear, there is a lot of choice for your pet. Do not think you are limited to checking the stock at your normal pet store where you get your dog food from as often they will only have a limited choice of basic items. Instead, search the internet for dog fashion and a whole wealth of sites are available.
So this summer the main fashion trend for dogs seems to be hot pink and prints. Coordinate your dog with your style by dressing her up in a hot pink polka dot outfit and you can team hot pink jeans with a polka dot top – both on trend! You can dress your dog in denim and stylish tops and even formal wedding wear if the occasion arises! And bedtime need not be time off from fashion, gorgeous soft pyjama sets are available for both boys and girls.
And there is no need to keep your dog walking about in a plain dog harness either. There are some amazing dog collars and leads available including brightly coloured leads, diamante collars, chrome wording collars and even fashionable print collar and lead sets. Check out here.
If you loved Legally Blonde and coveted Reece Witherspoon’s dog carrier then fear not as there is plenty of choice available for fashionable pet carriers. Gone are the days when a dog’s bed was only in the house, now with a fashionable carrier you can let your pup sleep in comfort whilst out and about with you.
And which dog is the best dog to have for dressing up and carrying about? I would rule out Labradors and any large breed dog, they are big enough to fight back if they don’t like the outfits, and stick to the smaller breeds like the Chihuahua. If you only want to accessorise your dog with a stylish collar or lead then any breed would look good, but a small breed like the pug or spaniel might be perfect for a cheeky jacket as well.
