Pets Need Jackets, Too! Here Are Some Favorites as Cold Weather Approaches

If it's cold enough for you to need a jacket, your pet might need one too!

Can you feel that slight chill in the air? Excited to start wearing your "fall clothes" and layering on some cozy knits? Well, in the same way you switch over your wardrobe each autumn, your pet deserves to step into the new season in style and comfort as well.

And the dog and cat outerwear doesn't get cuter than the options here! Think puffer vests and soft sweaters, statement-making snoods and fashion-forward fleeces. Not only will your fur kid be the coolest on the block, he or she will actually be warm, too, in perfect cat and dog jackets for winter.

The Perfect Pet Jackets

Frisco Plush Hooded Insulated Dog & Cat Coat with Bow

This plush poncho-style cover-up will elicit plenty of "OMG!" comments from passers-by, thanks to its adorable navy-and-white striped bow in back and ear accents on the hood. Oh, and did we mention the fab faux fur fabric? But lest you think it's all fashion and no function, note the handy leash hole plus hook-and-loop fasteners on the belly and neck.

Zoo Snoods Baby Alien 

The Force will be strong with your Baby Yoda when he's wearing this cheeky, hand-knitted dog snood. Recommended for small breed dogs and even cats, it will keep your four-legged friend's neck and ears warm - and keep you smiling - during the colder months.

Frisco Fleece Dog Snood

Soft, warm fabric. Slips on easily. Can be used as a head cover or neck warmer. This is what you'll get from this snuggly polar-fleece snood that comes in red, green, and black. There's even a helpful video on the site to show the item in action, including how to use the adjustable toggle and ribbon tabs to ensure a proper fit for your pooch.

Chilly Dog Boyfriend Dog Sweater

If this irresistible Chilly Dog sweater doesn't melt your heart, the weather may not the be only thing that's cold. The fair-trade brand has a warm-fuzzy story, too: It works with Inca artisans in South America to produce these hand-knitted items in a healthy workplace using only 100 percent wool and plant dyes.
