10 High Fashion Pet Accessories for Your Stylish Dog

The world of pet fashion and accessories is getting interesting and extravagant day by day. According to projections for 2020-2025 from Euromonitor International, the global market for pet products, excluding food, will grow by more than $10 billion. After that, it is said to reach $36.89 billion.

Let me give you an example. My tall, yet 1/4th my size, Dogo Argentino’s raincoat cost me three times as much as mine. And all he has is a square fabric covering his back, a hoodie, and two Velcro straps to hold him together. Despite the Rs. 2,500 outfit, he returns home after his walks wet and dirty.

This raincoat, however, is a poor choice compared to what Gucci, Hermès, Prada, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Moschino and other major brands have released over the past couple of years. Here’s a quick pick of some of the trendiest and maybe a little daring things you can get for your pet.

Polo Ralph Lauren’s Barn Jacket

If you think pet fashion is limited, you’re absolutely wrong. There are t-shirts, caps, hats, tuxedos and even barn jackets. By definition, a barn jacket is an informal style of jacket, originally designed for doing heavy duty work outdoors, made of a strong material that protects the wearer from the rain. But this $125 (roughly Rs. 9,994) Polo Ralph Lauren jacket is definitely not for pets who have to fend for themselves. Featuring a quilted construction and warm fleece lining, this one has decorative snaps, patch pockets and a functional waistband. If you are going to have a wine evening in the French vineyards, dress your pooch in this.
