You know you love your denims. When you found a perfect pair that fits like a glove, you wear them day and night. Not convinced? Close your eyes, imagine you’re standing in front of your wardrobe, tell me how many pairs of jeans can you see? Whether you love denims as much as I do, denim chic is an all seasons key trend that’s not going away anytime soon. Ever thought of introducing denims into your dog’s wardrobe?

So here’s why I think denims are great for dogs. I like dressing Noodle in nice outfits. However he loves rolling on the grass with zero care factor for his pup couture. This drives me nuts because I spend as much on his outfits as for myself but his usually last half the time. Therefore denim is the perfect material for dogs, balancing style and functionality.

Invented in the 17th century, denim started as a humble fabric for the working class in Northern Italy. Levi Strauss, aka Father of Denim, originally made jeans for the cowboys and miners since 1873. Not so much utilitarian in the fashion world anymore, denims have been sent out on high fashion runway for decades for its distinctive modern chic qualities. Now the animals are claiming it! Well, at least the dogs are…

I like this black denim coat with faux fur collar because it’s chic, warm and more importantly durable for Noodle. The silver fox faux fur collar feels luxury. The faux leather details on the pockets, zipper, right shoulder piece and belt totally glamming and rocking it up! The composition made of monochromatic black on black looks expensive.

So if you want to create a stylish look for your dog this winter that will last for a while, be sure to consider denims. Especially when they are black, dirts aren’t that visible, as my grandma would advise…
