Dogs: We love them. They’re the cute little guys who live in our homes and in our hearts. They’re companions, they’re cheerleaders, they’re family. They’re also gay! Sally has definitively proved that having dogs is a time-honored lesbian pastime.
You know what else is gay? Matching. We’ve all heard of the lesbian twinning phenomenon, where we end up matching our partners, or even our dates — I showed up to a first date in 2014 and we were both wearing Old Navy v-necks over tank tops, jeans and Converse — and now it’s time to start matching our pets as well! Because what’s cuter than a dog in a vacation shirt? A dog AND their queer person in vacation shirts, that’s what!
There are so many more options out there than there used to be for matching your wardrobe to your dog’s. Most of the outfits below include apparel that has been made specifically for dogs, but I’ve also discovered that Milo fits perfectly into toddler-sized shirts.
Most adult clothing in this guide is sized through 4X.
Old Navy Family Camp Shirts in Orange You Glad
Old Navy has a ton of family matching happening this summer, and there are so many amazing prints available! Orange You Glad is my very favorite. It looks good on literally everyone and it reminds me of Our Flag Means Death! My 19-pound dog fits happily into a 12-18 month toddler button-up.
Old Navy Pride Collection: Love Out Loud
Honestly thought this print said Live Out Loud for a moment, but I love it even more now that I know it’s Love! I feel like this matching Pride set works especially well if you have a dog who will willingly fit INSIDE the tote bag, like for riding the subway to pride parties. Live! Love! Laugh out loud!
Old Navy Family Camp Shirts in Yes Toucan
This dog is absolutely living their best vacation life, and you can too! (You can toucan? I’m sorry.) This is the shirt you wear when the sand is white, the ocean is aqua blue, and your vacation package comes with unlimited beverages. Cheers!
Target Pride Collection: Welcome Everyone
This Pride collection has dog AND cat representation, which is very inclusive! Do cats tolerate crop tops? Time will tell! Everyone is welcome at Target.
Target Family Pajamas: Rainbow Stripe
I absolutely love soft pajamas, and I want these so much! They look perfect for bed or for taking a work-from-home break to walk Milo to the mailbox. We’ll be the envy of the neighborhood. “Are those the–” “The Target family striped pajamas in rainbow? Yeah, they are!”
MeUndies Hoodies, Bralettes, Undies and BuddyBands
My underwear drawer is literally overflowing with soft undies in fun prints from Me Undies, but I did not know until today that they also make hoodies and bandanas for pets! Their prints rotate all the time, but here’s one of my favorites. Breakfast is served!
