15 Dog Themed Clothes & Accessories If You're Sick Of Seeing Cats On Everything — PHOTOS
When it comes to animals on clothing, cats have had a monopoly on the niche for far too long. Where is all the dog themed clothing of the world? When will the dog revolution come? Please join my United Association For Justice For Dogs and partake in purchasing some dog-inspired clothing to prove that the demand for pups in fashion is just as high as that of felines. After working in retail for two years, I feel I have the necessary experience needed to spearhead this campaign and bring dogs to the same level of mainstream fashion consciousness that our kitty friends receive.
Browsing the animal-themed clothing of the Internet on any given clothing website should only prove my point: Kittens prevail, and puppies are missing. The rivalry between these two much-loved family pets has been going on since ancient Egypt (I'm sure), but I say it's time for the fashion industry to stop perpetuating the unfair divide.
Sure, dogs proved themselves superior with the release of Cats & Dogs, but that was the early '00s. In the time since, we've seemingly forced cats on clothing onto the general public, when brands should be giving equal representation to our canine buddies. Until that equality is a reality, I reccomend checking out these clothes and accessories made specifically for all the dog lovers out there.
1. Pajamas... Or A Two Piece?
Balloon Dog Tee And Legging Pyjama Set, $39, asos.com
With the lack of dog-themed clothing available to the public, we may have to get a little creative. This pajama set could be separated into two cute dog-themed items or even worn as a snazzy two-piece.
