Let’s face it, living with pups isn’t always the best for your fashion. Between the hair, drools, and the toll weather takes while walking them, being fashionable while having a fuzzbutt can be difficult.

However, it IS pawssible! Here are some style essentials to keep you looking your best while you enjoy the day with your dearest doges:

1. Comfortable flats and sneakers.

Dressing for comfort doesn’t have to fall flat, fashion wise. In fact sneakers and flats are all the rage! If planning on an activity heavy day, opt for sneakers but for strolls a solid pair of flats (that you don’t mind getting dirty) will work just as well. You don’t want to worry about your feet hurting, when all your dog wants you to do is join in on the carefree frolic and fun.



Where to find:

Hush Puppies are a great brand to find flats for any occasion that also won’t kill your feet while you’re enjoying a walk with your pup!


As for sneakers, you can never go wrong with a good pair of Converse!


For other options, check out DSW, who almost always have a great variety at affordable prices.

2. Dark comfy denim or a durable pair of workout pants

When you know you’re going to be out with your pup for hours, chances are you’re also going to be getting down to doge level. Paw prints on dark colored pants/denim are easy to dust off. Plus a little dirt on ’em just adds more character. 😉 Here’s a one-stop shop for both!
