Pick out of some these hot doggy fall fashions so you can all be looking your best the day after Labor Day. Have a white dog? No worries, with these fashions, they can pull off "white after Labor Day” with flair.
Lauren Darr, Founder, International Association of Pet Fashion Professionals, has some insights on what the fall doggy fashion trends.
"Patterns, plaids, and prints.” Darr says. "Expect to see pieces that are entirely printed with abstract designers, contemporary patterns, and even plaids.”
Does your dog have an edgy side? Well you’re in luck because it’s "definitely in” according to Darr."Glam punk is more of a term that I would use,” she adds. "There are companies like Really Love Dogs that are new and edgy with their designs.”
And for those who still can’t get enough bling? It’s still popular, she says.
"One of the trends that I like is what I call 'bling with a techno twist' like that you see from Light Up Fashions. You can get a lit up garment with your favorite team, design, or dog on them. But, what I really like about this is the practical nature. These can be safety pieces when you take your pet out for a walk.”
And finally, it’s fall, so don’t forget your sports-themed apparel for your four-legged fan.
As for colors, Pantone color of the year is Orchid, so Darr says she expects to see pieces come out in purples, as well as other soft colors that compliment it.
