Crazy Cute Cat Clothes for the Dog Days of Summer
As renowned philosopher Regina Spektor once said, "Summer in the city means cleavage, cleavage, cleavage." But wearing less clothing doesn't have to mean being less stylish. Here are five ways to beat the heat and go a little cat crazy this summer.
1. A cat who's not afraid of the deep end
Okay, so it kind of looks like this cat is bursting Alien-style from this woman's stomach, but come on -- how else are you going to take a kitty to the pool without sustaining multiple puncture wounds? Get it here.
2. A cat who protects you from the sand instead of pooping in it
Grumpy Cat doesn't look happy about having her face on this adorable beach towel, but she'll totally help you out while you lie in the sun and work on your tan (while wearing SPF 110, of course). Get it here.
Bonus item no one can afford: This $100 towel features a cat sweating to the oldies, a workout routine you may or may not have tried in order to get ready for swimsuit season. (On a semi-related note, here's a helpful hint for getting a bikini body: Put a bikini on your body. You're already beautiful.) Get it here.
3. Nostalgia is better with kitties
This is the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death -- I know, I feel old, too. Pay tribute to Nirvana's troubled frontman by rocking this Nevermind-inspired tank. Get it here.
Meanwhile, the movie Jaws is almost 40, but sharks never stop being terrifying, so it's as fun to watch as ever. Let's imagine, for a moment, that giant aquatic cats filled the oceans instead of sharks. Scary stuff, right? Hence the shirt. Get it here.
4. A cat who won't scream when you step on his tail
The Holy Grail of cat flip flops is right here.
If flip flops aren't flashy enough for your taste, these glittery kitty sandals should do the trick. Get them here.
Bonus item no one can afford: At $2,100, these one-of-a-kind heels are an excellent icebreaker. If you start saving now, maybe you can afford them by this time next summer. Get them here.
5. Feline fancy
You'll look as cute as you feel in this simple, affordable cat-print sundress from H&M. Get it here.
If I still worked at the corporate cube farm, I'd make this one my Monday dress. Just looking at it totally cheers me up, even on the worst day of the week. Get it here.
