Trendy Fashions to Wow at the Dog Park
From New York to Milan, February means Fashion Week. And as supermodels strut the runway dressed in Givenchy and Prada, pups are flaunting their own flair with the latest colors and patterns in neckwear at dog parks across the country. Whether your dogs fancy themselves fashionistas or just want to keep up with the bulldog down the block, Coastal Pet Products’ latest collars, leashes, and accessories boast trendy looks that can elevate the style cred for canine and human alike. “For many pet owners, their dogs are a reflection of their own lifestyles, so we draw inspiration for our collars, harnesses, and leashes from the popular elements of everyday life, from interior design to men’s ties to, yes, the fashion catwalk,” says Cathy LeDonne, Product Development Product Manager for Coastal Pet. Here’s a look at our newest offerings:
Collar Patterns That Spark a Smile
First, we’re giving some of our most popular Styles Adjustable Dog Collars an update. Plaid Bones retains its popular bright blue hue and always-fashionable dog bone pattern, but now boasts the plaid that’s back in style and lighting up Instagram. Our Resolve collar, featuring alternating diagonals of bones, arrows, pawprints, and hearts, has been upgraded with a teal colorway reflecting the latest home décor accents.
Resolve collars are as pleasing to the soul as they are to the eye, with proceeds from the sale of each going to Leader Dogs for the Blind. Coastal Pet has a similar commitment with our Outreach collar, whose proceeds are donated to the Morris Animal Foundation; the perky circles of blue and green in this pattern directly reflect design elements from the Foundation.
Styles collars are smooth and comfortable, with a pattern on both sides. Color-coordinated hardware includes a contoured snap-lock buckle that’s both sleek and easy to use. Ten additional patterns range from fun to flirty to match every dog’s personality.
Comfy, Color-Blocked Collars and Leashes
Not into patterns but still want a bit of zip? One of Coastal Pet’s newest collection, Inspire™, combines comfort and functionality with just the right amount of style. We’re enhancing nylon webbing with a black neoprene backing. The effect of the black against the bright, solid-colored webbing (available in blue, red, pink, purple, teal, and goes-with-anything gray) elevates the look of the collars and leashes while preserving utility. What’s more, the puffy neoprene provides a soft cushion around the dog’s neck and around the user’s wrist and hand.
Inspire collars feature a moving D-ring that allows for freedom of attachment anywhere around the neck. A matching harness includes an additional handle on the back to provide increased control when necessary.
Don’t forget the embellishments! Just as a dramatic necklace or the perfect pair of cufflinks can make or break an outfit, accessories help your dog’s personality shine. Our new Accent® lineup starts with a soft-and-sumptuous microfiber collar that is comfortable yet durable. Then, dress it up with a dashing bowtie or sprightly flower in one of five bold colors. Choose from a Red collar with red plaid bowtie, Boho Blue with polka-dot bowtie, Mod Black with leopard-print bowtie, Vintage Yellow with yellow flower, or Posh Pink with pink flower.
Each embellishment has an elastic backing for easy adjustment and removal, so you have freedom to dress up or dress down for every occasion. Rose gold hardware adds an additional level of sophistication to these stylish collars.
