So Adorable! The applique on the Poodle Pooch skirt portrays a woman! Sweetly ironic! My toy poodle is comfortable wearing this and even can nap in it. The headband fits comfortably and stays on for a good length of time. So glad I splurged for Halloween!

Leather Jackets

Snazz up your little girls day as well as everyone who sees her by looking as fabulous and tough as ever in the Pink Biker Dawg Motorcycle Leather Dog Jacket ! The details will make your bad girl feel like she is part of a gang and maybe even the leader of the pack! The leather jacket was very popular in the 50’s. This was mostly seen on males. Though these are 50’s themed outfits, it is the twenty-first century and your little girl pup can look just as bad and cool as ever in a leather jacket just like all the men! This designer faux leather jacket has a high quality embroidered Biker Dawg Vintage motorcycle on the back. There are several high-quality studs that embellish this jacket. The larger the dog jacket, the more studs it will have. The heavy D-ring enhances the metallic features but is also practical as it transforms this jacket into a harness too. (Leash not included.) For larger breeds, we recommend additional restraint for heavy pullers so there isn't too much pressure placed on the polyurethane material. Heavy duty touch fastener straps adjust at the neck and chest for comfort and durability. Also features a soft woven liner for comfort and provides a quality finished look. This stylish dog biker jacket is great for dogs headed to Sturgis or just want to look cool locally. Perfect for dogs that ride on motorcycles, just hang with the gang at the local watering holes or want to throw back to the 50’s.

This fabulous leather jacket is also available in Black and will for sure make you big, mighty, protective, and adorable boy as cool as ever! He will be apart of the Greasers in no time!


Polka Dots and Pearl Dress

The 50's were fun, with a celebration of life and fashion after the cutbacks that the World Wars had required. Furs, full skirts and fresh colors replaced the more utilitarian fashions of previous decades. You'll find the same whimsy of the 50's influencing human and pet fashions today!

Have your dog stay classy and sassy with this fabulicious Polka Dot Party Dog Dress ! This stylish dog dress is worthy of an occasion! Soft velvet with a tiered tulle and lace skirt, your little girl will look like a princess! No dress is complete without accessories and this lovely gown has them already built in! The faux-pearl necklace, bow, pom poms, and crystal buckle are sure to grab attention!



Sunglasses are a must in the 50’s fashion world! Not only will your dog look and feel fabulous, their eyes will also be protected while they are out getting their tan on! Trying to stay cool this Summer? Our K9 Optix are so hot that they will make any canine companion look cool! So super stylish you might just want to keep them for yourself. They are an essential accessory for every fashionable canine! With stylish designs, there's one for every occasion or outfit.


Greaser Boy

No Grease Boy is complete without their Plain White T-Shirt to go under their leather jacket!


Traveling Tropical

Travel became more popular in the 50’s and fashion was influenced by travel to tropical destinations like Cuba's Tropicana, Hawaii and Miami. With the Casual Hawaiian Dog Shirt , your boy will be as cool and fashionable as ever!



Thanks to Brigette Bardot , the bikini makes a bigger splash in the 1950's (though it was mostly banned until the 1960's). With the Matira Dog Bikini , your little girl will feel as though she was born in the 50’s! Dogs will be ready to hit the water in this colorful bikini. The bikini top features an abstract floral print with elastic straps and touch fastener closures. The cute bottom has a ruffle skirt with pink leg straps and touch fastener closures. This adorable dog bikini will be perfect for pool parties, the beach, or for a Luau. Your pup will love to be a calendar girl wearing this fashionable dog swimwear. Pair this look with some pink doggie sunglasses for a photo-ready outfit!


Out of the fabulous 50’s, many wonderful fashion trends emerged and have since been an inspiration to many future decades of fashion! Your pup will be as cute, cool, classy, fabulous, looking ready for any milkshake at a diner, and ready to go to the drive in movies! Get you 50’s themed clothing and accessories today!
