Are you tired of only finding Halloween costumes for your pet? Doesn’t he or she deserve the chance to express their own personal style, from preppy to hipster, tailor-made to small, medium and large dogs? Do you want the chance to match outfits with your furry best friend?
Well now you can with American Eagle Outfitters’ new line of doggy clothing.
Personally, I think it’s adorable (and who doesn’t like staring at photos of cute dogs?). The site even offers links to matching human apparel, but there has been some skepticism as to if it’s real or just a crack at an April fools joke. I hope it’s real because my dog just has to have that ‘selfie’ beanie. Although if my dog dressed this well, I think I might be in danger of her showing me up because the outfits and the dogs featured in the campaign are seriously cute.
And yes, in case you didn’t already know, doggie outfits are actually a thing — not to mention “doggles” — though it looks like the campaign just uses regular sunglasses for more of a laid-back vibe.
In the promotional video for the new line, American Beagle Outfitters seems to poke fun at the frivolousness of a doggy clothing line while offering an adorable array of outfits. My favorite part of the site is the fundraiser for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on the site, which pledges to give $1 per order purchased on the site for up to $100,000. What better way is there to both help out the ASPCA than by buying ridiculously cute outfits for your dog?
Either way, I’m just happy to see so many pics of adorable dogs wearing hilarious (and stylish) outfits. Check out the “dogumentary” below:
