Denim for Dogs
Whether you’re all about the low-rise, mid-rise, boot cut, skinny, bell bottoms, acid wash or anything else, there’s no doubt that denim in any style imaginable has been trendy at one point or another. But man those $250 jeans that look like they’ve been washed along with some barbed wire ($50 for the jeans and $200 for the trouble someone took to get those holes worn into it just right) can really break the bank.
Lucky for you It’s been officially decided that denim isn’t just for humans. And our furry friends require much less cash to outfit in their very own blue jeans. So if you’re too strapped for cash to spend $100’s on a single article of clothing for yourself, why don’t you live vicariously through fido and check out some denim for dogs.
As always we’ve brought you our favorite clothing articles for your viewing pleasure. Read on for your next dose of simultaneous fashion and adorableness.
You guys, this one makes us melt! Don’t the little built-in suspenders crossed in the back just tug at your heart and whisper, “buy me now. Buy me right now.” If you’ve got a small breed like a chihuahua, Yorkshire terrier, Pomeranian or a puppy, then you’re in luck because these blue jeans and striped shirt aren’t made for any dog larger than that.
Which is unfortunate because can you imagine that on Sandy the Golden Retriever?
It would be magical.
The best news is that this cute little ensemble will run you less than a pair of Old Navy jeans ;). The shirt is cotton and the jeans are of course denim, which, incidentally, is also cotton. They’re soft, comfortable and hand made with care to avoid loose, unraveling threads.
When you order yours, be sure to measure your pet so you know which size to get. You might want to consider going with a size up as they tend to run small. However, if the shoe doesn’t fit, so to speak, never fear, you can always exchange for a different size.
If your dog doesn’t wear the pants at your house then consider this less encompassing but equally fashionable denim vest and leash set. These items are made only for stars, and we know, that you know, that your dog is a star. We try to slip cat fashion into our articles to temper our overwhelming fondness for dogs when we can, and this is one of those instances when an article of clothing will work for either animal.
The star-spangled vest has a D-ring to attach the matching leash, as well as a cute little pocket to carry a favorite treat or toy along on your outings. The straps have velcro on the ends making it easy to put the harness vest onto your pet. It’s made of denim on both sides but the inside that makes contact with your pet’s skin is softer and padded to avoid any discomfort.
If your cats the type to go for a walk with you, we think this vest and leash would look especially elegant on her.
We included this classic, trucker, button-up because we love it! It’s equal parts casual and classy and could fit seamlessly into any dogs style repertoire.
Unfortunately, the retailer does not include exact measurement information for their sizes so it’s up to you on whether you want to take that risk. But you can return it within 15 days if you aren’t satisfied for any reason.
These overalls are almost too cute to look at! The three little back pockets nearly slay us. This denim is made out of cotton-polyester blend which allows it to stretch a bit better and dry a bit better if it happens to get wet. The pant legs don’t even hinder your pet from doing his business.
If your dog is larger than the toy varieties, then these are the overalls for them. They come in several sizes from the tiny measurements similar to our previous 3 denim picks up to dogs of 30 pounds. So, unfortunately, you probably won’t be getting your German Shepard to wear denim overalls, but if you have a mid-sized dog that’s a cowboy (or should we say cow dog) at heart, these overalls are the perfect match!
The Dobaz denim dog jacket is perfect for the big dog on campus. The embroidered logo over suede detailing on the back communicates a unique style that harks back to an age of Letterman jackets and pegged jeans. We love this jacket because under that stylish denim exterior, is a soft-inner lining. This adds comfort and warmth for your furry pal to wear in the fall, winter and early spring.
The Dobaz jacket is easy to wear with slip-on armholes, chest buttons, and hook and loop closures that allow you to cinch the jacket for a snugglier fit. Sizes are available for pets with up to a 21-inch chest circumference.
If your doggo didn’t choose the thug life, but the thug life chose him, consider the gray-hoodie jean jacket combo. This jacket is a classic favorite, perfect for any dog looking to up their street cred. 🙂 All jokes aside, we think this hoodie looks great with almost any fur color combination.
For pets with a back length up to 13″, this hoodie is soft, comfortable and even machine washable. Bonus! It’s perfect for providing just a tad bit of extra warmth on chilly days while not overheating your pet. Wear a jean jacket and gray hoodie of your own to match with your favorite friends. You’ll be the talk of the town 😉
