Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt noticed the trend in cute animal sweaters. They’re EVERYWHERE. You can get owls, foxes, puppies, horses–you name it, I’m sure you can find a sweater out there featuring your favorite creature. It’s a veritable fashion Noah’s Ark out there. Here are some of the favorites I’ve noticed over the last few months:

Jil Sander

Keiko Lynn, sporting a cat with glasses. And a cute pup. Pretty much all the best things.

I haven’t found the perfect nanimal sweater yet, but I just couldn’t pass up a t-shirt with Boston Terriers on it I found at Urban Outfitters last weekend, on sale for $12:

What do you guys think of the trend? Do you have any sweaters with cute animals on them? Would you wear them?

    I’m a little afraid that they’ll look dated in a couple years, but damnit this is one trend I can get behind. Who doesn’t want an adorable sheep/puppy/whale on their sweater?

    I’ve made several comments in the last few months about how utterly screwed I am when this goes out of style. I currently have blouses with foxes and robots (but not robot foxes, which would be a way to get me to buy another shirt, Zara!), and I have the Frenchie J.Crew sweater (pictured above), and I have a sweater with a giant gnome. Do gnomes count? I think gnomes count. I also have a heart sweater.

    This paragraph has taught me two things: I have purchased too much in the last year, and I want more things with things on them. ALL OF THE THINGS.

    What does “nanimal” mean?

    I have been guilty of following this trend for years before it was a trend, as evidenced by the growing collection of things with a penguin on them in my closet… :)

    I hope this cute animal trend doesn’t go away. :)

      Nanimal is just a funny word I say sometimes. :)

        OH! I thought it was like a “thing.” Like some official fashion-world term for items with animals on them. I was all, woe, I am behind the trend terminology.

        It is adorable, and so are you! And so is your puppy t-shirt.

    Aria Montgomery in Pretty Little Liars is wearing the Boston Terrier shirt in the newest episode of PLL! I’ve been searching all over for it, but I cannot find the shirt!

      Oh no! I picked mine up at Urban Outfitters back in the fall, but they may still have it in the sale section? Good luck finding it!
