Cue those wagging tails! Our pawsome runway report for fall/winter fashion for dogs is here. Learn what colors, styles, fabrics and finishes are trending this season, and then shop from our expert curations to find the perfect designer-inspired styles for your furry fashion fiend. Whether you dress your sweet sidekick in an eye-popping primary-colored parka, a retro corduroy dress, a collegiate cardigan or an animal print coat, they’re destined for best dressed status.
The Trend: Primary Colors
On the Runway: This season’s biggest color trend is brought to you by kindergarten art class. Primaries—red, yellow and blue—made an eye-catching comeback last year, seen in collections by Hermès and Carolina Herrera, and continue to color the catwalk.
On your Furbaby: The bright palette is perfect for sporty pieces and can make a traditional knit more modern. Mix with geometric patterns, like stripes, to reinforce the back-to-basics appeal.
The Trend: Sustainability
On the Runway: Designers, such as Stella McCartney, are striving to make fashion less damaging to the earth by using manufacturing processes and fabrics that minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving natural resources.
On your Furbaby: Decrease your environmental paw print and cut down on what gets sent to the landfill by looking for knits and coats made from recycled materials.
The Trend: Animal Prints
On the Runway: Animal prints never really go out of style thanks to their incredible outfit-making prowess. But this season, designers like Michael Kors and Anna Sui managed to make the patterns look new again and created pieces that run the gamut from classic to punk rock.
On your Furbaby: The king or queen of your backyard deserves to be dressed to the nines in a sophisticated leopard print coat or sporty hoodie. Make it pink for a fresh, girly take.
The Trend: Corduroy
On the Runway: A staple of the 70s, corduroy has a nostalgic feel that's perfectly in step with what’s happening in fashion right now. Corduroy might be having a moment, showing up in collections by Tory Burch and Tod’s, but it’s long been a winter wardrobe staple.
On your Furbaby: A muted mustard overall dress captures the fabric’s retro vibe, while a hooded vest gives it more of a sporty feel. If it’s preppy you prefer, we suggest a canvas coat finished with a corduroy collar.
The Trend: Metallics
On the Runway: Shine and sparkle may scream red carpet or big night out, but this season, gleaming gold, copper, and silver pieces were shown for daytime, too. Metallics shimmered on stage for brands like Balmain and Dolce & Gabbana, adding drama to everyday apparel.
On your Furbaby: Your pet will feel like a superstar strutting down the block in a full-on, high shine parka. Or choose a neutral jacket dotted with gold if subdued is more their style.
The Trend: Collegiate
On the Runway: Ivy League style (Think: cardigans, pearls and plaid) is making a comeback. The preppy look has been loved by brands like Ralph Lauren for years, but other designers like Lorenzo Serafini for Philosophy and celebrities (no one rocks a sweater vest quite like Harry Styles) are embracing the trend.
On your Furbaby: Get Professor Pup ready for office hours in a cardi, sweater vest or tweed coat. Wood paneled library sold separately.
