9 Stylish Dog Accessories You Wish You Could Wear Yourself
There are two types of people in the world. There are the ones who think nice dog accessories are ridiculous—why spend money on any of it? It will get ruined! And then there are the ones who dress their dog better than they dress themselves. If you fall into the second camp, you’re in the right place. Here are nine accessories that are so cute and stylish, we wish we could wear them ourselves.
Signature Carrier by Fable
This brand new (just launched this month) collection by Fable is gorgeous. We’re partial to the Signature Dog Carrier in Blush and matching collar. The carrier’s exterior is made (in Spain) from high-quality leather, and the inside is sleek nylon, so any accidents are muy wipeable. Store supplies and treats in the zipper pocket and secure your pup (via Fable’s pretty collar) to the short interior tether. FYI the collar is made from super-soft Italian leather. Both have custom hardware. Buy one for Sadie and one for you, OK?
Harness by Wild One
Talk about athleisure! Brooklyn-based Wild One’s harness is like a sexy ski vest for dogs (especially that red option). Made from soft, flexible material, these harnesses are comfortable and lightweight, so they don’t restrict movement. There’s two places you can attach your leash, depending on your dog’s mood. Just be sure to wear something cool to get on Ziggy’s level when you go for walks.
Boobies Collar by Shed
Made from totally vegan materials, this aptly named boobies collar shouts “Free the nipple!” and “I love my dog!” all at once. It’s whimsical, which makes it perfect for a frolicking pup, and comes in two colors (Goth and Grape Soda), which makes it fun to accessorize. Honestly, buy both versions so you can don one as you and Merlot go out on the town.
Acid Wash Denim Leash by Shed
I know we just talked about Shed, but it also has an acid wash denim leash made from recycled denim that we have to address. It’s part of the Mom Jeans collection (into it), which covers strong hemp fabric with recycled denim for the ultimate hip look. Also, we hear acid wash and all things ’90s are coming back so, get ready. And get your dog ready, too.
Lumi Leash and Collar Set by Boo Oh
Without the leash attached, the handle of Boo Oh’s Lumi leash could legit serve as a statement bangle. The sophisticated design exudes cool, and it doesn’t hurt that the leash is handmade with genuine Italian Buttero leather. The round handle is lightweight aluminum coated in a protective, satiny gold finish. (Boo Oh is also a woman-owned company based in Seattle named after a French bulldog.) This is not your grandmother’s dog leash.
Enamel Pet Tags by Two Tails Pet Company
Duh, enamel pins are fun, witty accessories for self-expression. So, of course the style lends itself playfully to dog tags. Two Tails Pet Company has tons of enamel charms/pet ID tags, and we’re loving this goofy That’s So Fetch tennis ball design. Any chance to pay homage to Mean Girls is cool with us.
Spike Collar by Sighthound Squad
It’s a delightful combo of edgy and sweet; these cartoonishly fun spike collars by Sighthound Squad are as cool as it gets. (They also come in white, black and yellow, but something about that powder blue calls to us.) Not only are these handmade, vegan and eco-friendly, but they are also waterproof! We know, we know…it’d also make a super-hip bracelet for you. Let’s see if Olly will share.
Dog Waste Bag Holder by Graphic Image
Sorry, is that a cute clutch or a discreet doggie waste bag holder? Why not both? This tiny leather satchel has cute brass hardware, attaches to belts or leashes and holds a full roll of plastic poo bags. Who says the bag that carries the bag that holds turds can’t be fashionable?
Bandana by Prunkhund
This Capri bandana from Prunkhund is the perfect neck-cessory for a dog with a sense of style. This company makes tons of cute scarves for dogs, though, so if bright colors aren’t your thing, check out their huge collection of patterns and colors.
