Dog fashion is undeniably one of the most expressive, and fun ways to spruce up your pet’s look. Not every dog is a fan but if yours might be, you should definitely keep reading. The best part is that when it comes to dog fashion, there are endless routes you could go down. Whether it be bandanas, hats, jackets, or even neckties, check out the blog below for the best ways to style up your pup.
Bandanas and Hair Bows
Bandanas and bows are probably the easiest options as almost every dog is comfortable and confident showing these off. The lightweight nature of these both makes them acceptable for every season or holiday. You can order thousands of colors and styles that you and your pup will love. Better yet, both of these items are super affordable.
Bandanas and bows can be used to represent a certain color for a fun holiday, or simply to make your dog look like the cutest puppy at the dog park. We have linked some of our favorite sites to purchase these simple and cute accessories.

Collars and Harnesses
Being the most practical way to show off style, it is important to find the perfect mix of functional and stylish. Depending on you and your dog, you will need something that is sturdy, durable, and has control over your dog. For example, if your dog is known to slip out of collars, ensure you search for a harness that does a better job securing them, even if it isn’t your ”cutest” option. That being said, hopefully, we can find you something that does both.
Similar to other items on this list, collars come in many different colors, sizes, and designs. Since it is probably the most common dog accessory, the many options to choose from make this research fun.

Collar Charms and other Jewelry
Gifting your dog some cute bling in the form of collar charms or jewelry of some sort can be a unique way of spicing up your dog's look. They usually come in the form of charms that go along with an ID tag or bedazzled clip ons.
These can be flashy so you have to be sure not to go overboard. On the upside, they are an adorable and cheap way to add some easy fun to your dog’s life.

Goggles and Sunglasses
The warmth of summer or the chill of winter means tons of fun outdoor times with Rover. But with that comes a need for protection from harmful UV rays, debris, and more. Luckily we can do this in a stylish way.
Goggles provide the most protection, forming to your pup's face. They are adorable and fun. On the flip side, sunglasses come in more creative styles and can make your dog look like a cool dude/dudette.

Hats are another fun way to dress up your pup. Some hats are great because they protect your dog’s face from direct sunlight and perhaps help them either cool off or warm-up. You can stick to everyday, athletic hats, or venture into fun, silly hats such as cowboy hats or beanies. Either way, hats are an undeniably adorable way to have fun with your dog’s look without going too far.
Bow Ties and Neckties
Big event coming up? Something fancy?
If so, bow ties and neckties will be perfect for Fido. These accessories make your dog look like the most dapper pup at the party while still providing some laughs from those around you.
Most dogs are comfortable with these items as they feel similar to a collar. They also aren’t only for fancy events. Some pups like to feel fancy all day every day. Don’t hesitate to give these cute pieces a try.

Jackets and Shirts
Jackets and shirts are great options because, due to the surface area, they provide the most chances for expression. However, these can also be tricky as some dogs don't like wearing something as big as this. Make sure your dog is okay with wearing something on his body so that he is comfortable through and through. If they are okay with it, then you have the chance for some fun outfit choices for your doggy.
Jackets are awesome because they also provide your pup warmth in the winter and can look super fly. Shirts, however, are a more year-round, season-friendly version. Like some of our other options, you can go the practical route, the stylish route, or the funny route. Down below are some of our favorites.
With all of this info, your pup can easily secure the spot of best-dressed doggy. However, it is important to first and foremost ensure the comfort and safety of your dog. Don’t overdo it. A simple charm can make just as big of an impact as a full-on jacket. Pick a couple of cute accessories that they love and let them proudly wear them. To set your pups up for success, continue to research and try out accessories slowly. And most of all, have fun!
