Fun Ways To Dress Up Your Pet

posted by The Daily Fluff September 8, 2016 0 comments

Admit it, you might play judgmental pet owner when you see a dog walking around in a nice knit sweater, but deep down you know that your dog would look adorable in one. Dressing up your pets doesn’t mean you have to go super OTT, it can be both practical and adorable too.

Unsure what to dress your pet in? Read on below for some great ideas…

Bow-collar and neckerchief:

For those of you who are new to the world of pet fashion, starting off with simple accessories is probably the way to go. A simple bow-collar, or neckerchief can be a great way to start.

Oliver the Cavoodle would definitely agree:

“When we have guests over or when I’m visiting friends, mum and I always open my box of neckerchiefs – it’s a white wooden Jack and Jill box with my name written on it – and we choose which neckerchief I’ll wear. My favourite brands are Toby Wigglebottom and Charlie and Bella“.

Sweaters and coats:

Keeping warm in the colder months can be difficult, especially for breeds like Sphynx cats and Chihuahuas. Sweaters or coats are a great way to combat the cold and the changing fashion trends. Most pet stores stock sizes down to extra small, meaning that they would definitely suit our feline friends too (if you can get them on them!)

Costume dressing:

Costume dressing is for those of us who completely and totally embrace the world of pet fashion. I mean, if you’re going to dress up, shouldn’t your furry friend be able to as well?

Not only will a costume make your pet look sassy-as-hell, it will also provide you with photos that will last a lifetime. With Halloween on the way, the internet is full of costumes for pets of every shape and size. No really, for every shape and size.

So whether you’re feeling conservative or festive, there are endless ways to spice up your pet’s wardrobe. If in doubt, why not let your pet decide?

We’d love to see your pet in their finest threads. Share your snaps with us on Instagram by tagging us @dailyfluffmelb
