Isn’t it always fashion week? Living in New York City it sure feels that way, just head out into the streets and see for yourself. But for those that need an official event to make a statement, look no further than New York Fashion Week.

Last week, NYFW gave us a preview of what we will be seeing and wearing next spring and summer. Hundreds – some just starting, some huge celebrity names who break the internet, cough Yeezy cough – gave us a sneak peak of their collection. The presentation for many was quite outlandish, but an excellent source of inspiration for those of us more interested in dog fashion.
So while fashion week certainly got our hearts racing, it is also provided a great excuse to update our pup’s wardrobe.
Here are five trends seen on the runway that your dog can sport.
Nautical not just at sea
This trend may be hot this season making a big splash at Tommy Hilfiger especially, but we’ve seen our four-legged friends rock this look before.
Instagram famous dog Tinkerbelle got in on the nautical trend early when she walked the runway, or rather was carried down by Ralph Lauren Model Mattia Regonaschi, at the WAGSociety show Wednesday in a nautical dress and red collar.
Skimpy tees, short shorts, jean cutoffs, midriff revealers and slit skirts seen during this NYFW all gave a nod to the Flashdance era. The 80s seemed to be a big influence on the runways with designers like Monse, Self Portrait and Brock Collection specifically emphasizing off the shoulder looks.

This season’s runways are telling us we don’t have to be mortified when we realize we are dressed exactly like our BBF. Apparently, twinning is in. Several designers such as Monse, Rebecca Minkoff and Tommy Hilfiger had models stroll down the catwalk in identical looks.
This look is great for the dog parent with two pups, or for the human who has so been wanting to match with their dog.
In the trench coats
Oversized trench coats with big buckles and slouchy fabrics were seen multiple times on the runway, including at Tibi, Dion Lee and Creatures of the Wind.
Taking this look from the runway to your dog will give them the sophistication and style you know they already have. Obviously.
Thank you for this trend. We’ve always wanted an excuse to dress like “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski, and now we can. Lacoste, Jonathan Simkhai and Band of Outsiders also sported robes down their runways. Effortless and chic.
I think all of the dogs will abide by this trend, and we know some of them already are.
