10 of the Best-Dressed Dogs

You're not the only one in your family who has a passion for fashion. Check out these pictures of 10 well-dressed dogs!

The best-dressed dogs are those that prove fashion isn't just for humans. Whether they're dripping with fancy accessories or rocking outfits that are more delicate than your wedding dress, these canines have a style that just can't be beat.

Interested in having your dog join the ranks of this fashionable squad? Then go ahead and style your pet from head to paw! You can even turn your furry friend's leash or harness into a bold fashion statement. But don't forget that the best-dressed dogs don't necessarily have to wear heavy or uncomfortable fabrics. After all, the most important thing is for your canine companion to be as comfortable as possible. Look for light, delicate fabrics, instead. For instance, flowy tulle may give your furry friend the room she needs to roam around comfortably.

And, when picking an outfit, be sure to let your pet's personality -- not her appearance -- lead the way. Even a tough bulldog can look like a precious pooch in something unexpected, like a ballerina tutu. Finally, be sure to remember that fashion is not a girl's club! Your male dog can make a stylish statement, too. All you need is a bow tie or a collar -- and perhaps a full-length coat.

Are you ready for your furry friend to find her signature look? Then check out these snapshots of 10 of the best-dressed dogs:
