Welcome to the Animal Planet

Animal-centric clothing that goes beyond typical leopard print. Did your ears just perk up? Whether it's your dog, your cat, or your school of fish that fills you with joy, you're bound to find a piece to make all your own.

Leave it to fashion designers including Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, and Alessandro Michele to take animal prints to a new (and even cuter) level. It's no longer enough to feature a simple leopard or zebra motif. The latest craze is to illustrate actual animals, from dogs and cats to snakes and tigers, on standout pieces like intarsia sweaters and slip dresses. Whether you're a diehard animal lover or just a pet owner, there are tons of ways to incorporate a fun, patterned number into your everyday look. While we are fans of McCartney's chevron top with a feline twist, it wouldn't take much to turn us on to dog-adorned cashmere knit from Bella Freud. Shop all of the best options below.
