The Cat’s Meow: Kitty-Inspired Winter Fashion
Alternative fashion can include a variety of style subgenres and animal-inspired looks are definitely on the list. We’ve chosen to highlight a few cruelty-free kitty cat pieces that will look great with all of your gothic-inspired looks. And whether you’re the crazy cat lady kind or the glamorous sex kitten, you’ll definitely enjoy the purrrrfect pieces we’ve chosen for you.
Cat eye glasses are still all the rage and with good reason. The adorable shape looks good on a variety of face shapes and adds instant appeal to your outfits—just check out this post featuring all feline sunglass models. The black super cat eye sunnies pictured above from Express feature a thicker brow for more of a dramatic take on the traditional look.
The black cat jelly coin zip purse pictured above from Asos is a cute addition to any animal-inspired alt wardrobe and is the right size for holding your change or other little odds and ends. Toss this in your purse when you’re on the go, or use it alone to stash your cash without having to carry a big tote.
Even alternate fashion can use a touch of colour from time to time, and this pink Bad Kitty beanie hat with lace ears is the perfect balance of femininity and badassery. Pair this with your favourite all-black ensemble and vegan combat boots or your favourite sweater, graphic tee, and skinny jeans for a look that’s both girly and edgy.
Rather than a tiara, why not choose a kitty ear headband. You’ll be the most beautiful cat in all the land minus the prom queen look. The multicolour stone detail cat ear headband pictured above from BCBG Max Azria has just the right combination of feline characteristics with a fancy twist.
If you’re looking to show your appreciation for fellow felines, then this fashion site highly recommends this adorable purple Brat and Suzie cat print short sleeve T-shirt dress. Fortunately, you can wear this piece even during the winter months by pairing it with a coat or layering it over a long sleeve tee with tights and combat boots or platform Mary Janes.
Not only is a kitty sweater totally practical, but it’s also really difficult to pass up, and according to one report, they’ve gained popularity since the trend’s pre-fall emergence. The adorable geek-chic black and white cat jumper sweater pictured above from Topshop is the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe. Pair it with knee or thigh-high socks layered over a pair of leggings with your favourite boots for an outfit that’s as stylish as it is warm and cosy.
We hope you’re inspired by our kitty-themed, cruelty-free picks. Don’t be afraid to include your own spin on what we’ve already presented, and remember to choose what makes you feel good rather than what others think you should wear. Fortunately, this fine feline fashion is so fun and frisky we just know you’ll feel meow-velous no matter which item you choose!
