Tiki’s 2018 Guide to Fall Fashion for Dogs
Ultimate fashion guide for your trendy pooch, including accessories, outfits and even Instagram accounts.
Chunky knits, graphic tees … and gingham? Apparently they’re all a part of fall fashion trends for dogs, and we’re loving it. Of course, our expertise at the Good Dog Hotel & Spa is in dog boarding, doggie daycare and grooming, but we can appreciate an adorable dog on any given day, no matter what they’re wearing.
Tiki, our Good Dog Hotel & Spa ambassador, is especially interested in trend spotting (style is practically his middle name), so we asked him to put together some of his favorite resources for staying on top of the latest fashions. Here’s what he came up with.
If you love shiny and flashy, then this is your year. This list on Rover.com includes metallic fabric. We’re talking gold, shiny and attention-grabbing. But it also includes some standard fall staples, like chunky sweaters, rain coats and a handy quilted vest. Tiki was leaning toward the gingham jacket and bow tie, but he’s still weighing his options.
New York’s Fashion Week is the gold standard for fashion trends, and according to US Weekly, it has a trickle-down effect on must-have wardrobes for dogs. Here, you’ll find a little bit of everything, from faux snakeskin leashes and infinity scarves, to a football crewneck hoodie and lumberjack pajamas.
Tiki likes to stand out from the crowd, which is why this list from StyleTrails caught his eye. Regarding jean jackets, “… 2018 is all about tearing up the rule book and moving to your own beat. If your pets are anything like ours, they probably already operate by their own rules, so why not give them the right gear to do it in?” Another trend in the list includes luxurious travel with your pets. But Tiki wants to remind you that when you travel with only humans, we have plenty of luxury here at the Good Dog Hotel & Spa for your pooch.
What dog doesn’t need a Hawaiian shirt to brighten up the winter months ahead? Or what about a triple strand of pearls? At HoustoniaMag, you’ll find accessories for the dog (and cat) who already has everything. One of Tiki’s favorites won’t surprise you, because “What says ‘bad to the bone’ more than a faux-leather vest? This is an easy way to earn Fido some street cred at doggy day care.”
If you’re an Instagram junkie, you’ll love these suggestions from Vogue. “Instagram has become the playground of dog owners everywhere, whose cute posts are enough to brighten even the gloomiest of days.” Check out these humorous and poignant posts from humans who love dogs and fashion.
