Dog clothing does not have to be tacky, that if it were made into human sized clothing, you would be ashamed to wear it. In recent years, we have seen celebrity pets like Tinkerbell don stylish dog clothing that matches the elegance of her owner, Paris Hilton. While you can certainly opt for designer dog clothing made by Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton, you need not have to put up with the outrageous prices if it is not within your budget. So, do you want to have a stylish dog and not bore a hole in your pockets? Read on as we continue with our list of fashionable and timeless dog clothing designs.
If you think sports jackets are the only athletic clothing you can buy for your furry friends, think again. If you are going to the beach, or if it’s unbearably hot outside, you can treat your pet to a bikini walk. Wonderful designs in bright colors always do the trick.
The Baby Dress
If you have a female dog, you are in luck. One of the most fascinating and cutest dog clothing available is the baby dress. Imagine a dress without the sleeves, and that’s basically what a baby dress is. More than colors and designs, you can mix and match baby dresses with your favorite cartoon character, ribbons, flowers, laces, and other stuff you can think of. You can even order a matching head band to make sure that your dog is dressed to the hilt from head to toe!
The Tee Shirt
The tee shirt is probably the best and most timeless. This is especially true if you got a male dog, or if you find ribbons and laces too girly or too fussy. A simple tee shirt that is made to fit your dog will do the trick in making it more stylish.
Getting the right fit: Making it snug and stylish
All the designs in the world would be useless if the clothing you buy falls right off your dog. Remember that not all dogs have the same. Some dogs may have an XS fit for the body, but their necks might be a little bigger. So make sure that you get a snug fit by taking your dog’s measurements. These are the rules:
- Length: measure from the base of the neck to end of back or beginning of tail
- Neck: measure where the collar sits
- Girth: measure around the largest part of the chest
