Treat Your Very Good Dog to An Adorable Hawaiian Shirt This Summer
This summer, treat your very good doggo to a very stylish Hawaiian polo shirt—because dogs are people, too.
The shirt, made by Expawlorer and available through Amazon, features a vibrant Hawaiian island scene that will surely highlight the sparkle of adventure in your dog’s eyes and remind you that they deserve an extra belly rub for staying on top of seasonal trends.
It’s made from a natural cotton that will help keep your dog cool beneath the heat of the blistering summer sun, and the Velcro fastener on the front of the shirt will ensure a stress-free dressing experience (for both of you).
Does your dog have an unparalleled penchant for making messes? Fret not: The shirt is machine washable and can be thrown in the dryer, too.
Prices start at $12, and you can purchase it in sizes small, medium, large, and extra large. According to the product description, it fits small and medium-sized dogs best; one reviewer notes that the extra large is snug on their 60-pound dog. If the petite sizing prompts you to wonder, “Would this fit my cat?,” the answer is yes. The small size is designed for pets with a 10-inch neck circumference, which would work for the average cat, though it may be a bit loose on smaller kitties. (“Would my cat let me put this on them?” is an entirely different question that only your cat can answer.)
The Hawaiian shirt is much more than a bold and festive fashion statement—its rich history dates back to the 1920s, and the look has been embraced by a variety of human celebrities, including Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
However, if the “life of the party” connotation of the Hawaiian shirt doesn’t quite fit the personality of your pet, here are some other options.
