Out of all of the cat clothing and fashion I’ve covered, I think that dresses are my favorite because they have the potential to be all-out cray. Instead of just a simple T-shirt or a pair of cat socks, the purpose of feline frocks is to turn your whole body into a billboard for cat lady pride.
I’ve noticed a lot of dresses lately that feature subtle cat prints, but in my opinion, when it comes to cat fashion, you should go big or go back to the cat house.
From kitty-faced bodices to accessorizing with balls of yarn, here are five of the craziest cat dresses you can buy right now. They all beg the question: How bold are you willing to go?
Heading out to a formal affair? Why not bring along this black-tie clad kitty as your date, in a flirty little number from ASOS.
The flouncy dress, which features a fitted, feline-faced bodice along with pretty sheer paneling, is my cat dress crush at the moment — it’s quirky and cute yet still manages to remain cool and stylish at the same time.
Vintage inspired cat fabric gets a modern twist in a cap-sleeved frock from ModCloth. Win (cat) friends and influence (dog) people with this pack of friendly feline faces who have your back, front, and, um, everywhere else in between!
I wasn’t sure about the dress on its own, but I love ModStylists’ suggestion to soften the look by adding a fitted denim jacket, simple necklace, wedge sandals, and an oversized purse. It all adds up to give the dress a more youthful silhouette, suited to the modern cat lady on the go.
As a bona fide Hello Kitty fanatic who endured food poisoning for a chance to travel to the Hello Kitty theme park in Tokyo, I’m crazy for this adorable kitty dress designed in collaboration with JapanLA.
Hello Kitty’s mouthless mug serves as the centerpiece of this truly awe-inspiring creation. It includes sweet details such as little ears that stick up and a handmade puffy red bow, which adds that extra touch of pussycat pizzazz.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the biggest cat lover of all? The answer is you in this chic, off-the-shoulder T-shirt dress from Rabbit and Eye.
Sometimes less is more, and if you’re not in the mood to cover yourself with cats, you can still express your affinity for the feline persuasion in a way that’s unmistakable. For an added layer of authenticity, roll around on the floor or cuddle your kitty close before you head out, to make sure an adequate amount of cat hair completes the look.
If you’re really looking to make an entrance and proclaim your status as the craziest cat lady in the room, FeltUp Clothes has you covered in this unique dress that’s one part fashion, two parts work of modern art.
The white kitty’s eyes glitter courtesy of a gold-sequined spandex bandeau, while other eye-catching details include an oversized pink button nose, black plastic whiskers, and a skirt constructed out of layers upon layers of fluffy white yarn. Warning: This dress might put the wearer in a playful mood, but keep your cats at bay, unless you want to lose your skirt before you even walk out the door.
