January 2024 | Highpaw stories

As we step into the New Year, it's not just our wardrobes that are getting a style upgrade ─ our furry friends are joining the fashion parade, too! High fashion dog wear has evolved beyond the traditional dog apparel, and 2024 promises an array of trends that blend flair with functionality. Let's dive into the hottest stylish trends that will have your four-legged companion turning heads in the coming year.

Retro revival

Everything old is new again! Retro-inspired designs are making a comeback, with vintage patterns, colors, and accessories taking center stage. Your dog can channel the charm of bygone eras with retro-inspired coats and accessories. You can find a wide range of designer dog apparel with vintage vibes here at High Paw!

For example, the Heritage Tweed Coat with its sherpa collar and faux leather trim is a classic choice for any dog. The timeless countryside Harris Tweed features a green/brown herringbone weave with a brown overcheck. It is made from 100% pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides and woven by hand by the islanders in their homes, and stamped by hand with the famous Harris Tweed Orb trademark. Fully lined and with a wraparound strap, this coat will keep your dog snug when there's a chill in the air. In addition, the adjustable Velcro fastening around the neck and chest make this coat easy to take on and off and to adjust its size.

Another great piece of dog clothing is the grape color Quilted Coat that provides warmth and protection from the elements and ensures a stylish look that will keep your pet looking their best, even when the weather doesn’t look so good. It is fully lined with cotton and trimmed with a cream Sherpa fleece collar, and also features an adjustable Velcro fastening around the neck and chest that makes it easy to take on and off and to adjust its size.

And if you want to add a touch of style to your dog’s retro look, Stoneham Tweed Bow Tie is the way to go! Sophisticated and smart, this luxury bow tie will lift your dog's attire. It is the perfect accessory for a special occasion and is a fun gift for your dog. The bow tie is designed to slip on to a collar using the two elastic loops on the back. Easy like that!

Bold patterns and stripes

Say goodbye to plain and hello to bold! Whether it's polka dots, stripes, or geometric patterns, bold prints are taking over dog fashion. Vibrant and eye-catching, these patterns add an extra dose of personality to your pup's wardrobe full of high-quality dog products.

The cruelty-free New Zealand wool used in crafting this piece ensures a soft and cozy feel, while its showerproof feature makes it suitable for light rain conditions. Moreover, the thoughtful inclusion of a collar hole for a lead adds practicality to this fashionable canine attire.

The sumptuously soft Filippo Dog Sweater is another great choice if you want to dress your dog in style, opting for cool stripes. A must-have for all fashion-forward canines, this sweater is made from alpaca and sheep wool blend, making it snuggly and warm, while also being lightweight and easy to wear. Designed by the MiaCara brand design team, the Filippo dog sweater features a Scandinavian knit pattern in two pared-back color combinations and offers optimal insulation thanks to a new knitting technique. The elastic turtleneck makes it easy to put the sweater over your dog’s head, while the beautifully soft quality of the knit ensures the ultimate in comfort for your dog. The same brand designed another amazing dog piece ─ the Aurora Pink Sweater ─ featuring a discrete pattern which makes it really beautiful and a fashion evergreen.
