American Eagle Outfitters discovered through their April Fool’s dog fashion campaign that dog fashion = increased brand awareness and SALES!
Something we’ve been preaching at PupStyle for 12 years and overjoyed to see the mass brands catching on.
AE created a funny April Fools ad campaign in conjunction with the ASPCA to raise funds for the charity and in doing so learned the power of our dog fashion community.
The campaign was such a huge success that they decided to roll out a REAL collection of dog fashion apparel to coordinate with their human apparel line. You can dress your dog to complement your fav AE looks. I LOOOOVE IT! The hats are genius. Bravo American Eagle Outfitters!!
Luxury women’s fashion designer Tory Burch recently launched her own line of luxury dog fashion featuring a PupStyle friend and model Nobu!!

At PupStyle.com we get hundreds of product submissions a week from innovate and some not so innovative pet product companies from around the world. I am often asked what is our criteria for reviewing a product? It’s simple, I look for 3 key factors:
1. Stylish, stylish, stylish (must look like time and thought was put into the visual elements of the design).
2. Obsessively innovative (like Thomas Edison innovative)
3. Honest functionality (no gimmicky products-they MUST do what they claim and have high-design elements)
As an avid dog road tripper, I JUMPED at the opportunity when Highwave.com offered to send me 1 of only 10 samples of their newly invented AutoDogMug to put to the test!
The design alone had me totally giddy and I was also impressed with their company back story. This products is designed by the INVENTOR of the world’s first travel mug! Check out the quick video demo which really shows how cool this is.
Yes, the same man who changed the way we carry our coffee on the go, has created the most brilliant dog water travel mug I’ve ever seen.
This simple yet extremely handy product deserved a video to demo how it works. They even included a velcro strap to you can attach the bottle to a back pack, or bicycle $20.
OwlyStore on Etsy.com has created a collection of adorable, tiny dogs and their “scary Halloween Pug” is simply brilliant!
These little art pieces make special gifts and also make very PupStylish Halloween decor for our home or office. The designer will even custom make a personalized version of your own dog. Think holiday gifst…LOOOVE! $23.00
While your fur baby may not be riding the bus to kindergarten, it’s always a fun time of year to play around with Fall back-to-school fashion your pup as the leaves start to change and the smell of #2 pencils are in the air.
One of the hottest fashion trends in both the human and pet fashion world is plaids and checks. I am trend-spotting plaids and checks on every thing from boy dog shirts, bow ties, dresses and even plaid accents mixed with tweeds.
Comfort and safety always come first, so while the weather is still too hot for full fashion, play around with a plaid bow-tie collar or plaid flower collar for the girlie dogs. Stay tuned for more of my Fall Back-To-School pet fashion trends on PupStyle.com. Keep on PupStyling!!!
