Style: What this rescue King Charles lacks in teeth (the reason her tongue hangs out), she makes up for in taste. Whether she’s wearing matching Prabal Gurung sweaters with the Man Repeller (pictured) or sporting an ensemble inspired by the Spike Jonze movie, Her, the spaniel rarely makes a sartorial misstep.

Style: A ham in every sense of the word, this Brazilian mini pig loves to play dress up in costumes that include a lobster, a pirate, a bat, a skeleton, and a ninja turtle.

The Pointer Brothers
Style: Based in Vancouver, the two German Shorthaired Pointers are fond of dressing alike in outdoorsy getups like trapper hats, puffer jackets, and cozy sweatshirts (pictured).

Style:The Manhattan-based Yorkie’s wardrobe is whimsically eclectic. One day, she’s channeling Dionne Warwick in a knotted floral headscarf, the next, she’s kitted out in crisp springtime gingham. Kudos to owner/stylist, Sarah Staudinger, for always keeping us guessing.

Digby and Aloysius Van Winkle
Style: Digby (pictured) and Aloysius are two style-savvy Brussels Griffons living in Wellington, New Zealand. They're partial toward hipster chic looks, with lots of flannel shirts, knit caps, and tortoiseshell glasses thrown into the mix.

Style: This hedgehog doesn’t often wear more than her own quills. But when she does dress up (via a plastic trident hat?), she does so with aplomb.

Style: As the pet pooch of Elle Creative Director, Joe Zee, Pork Chop has gotten somewhat jaded by fashion over the years and now prefers to keep the whole circus at paw’s length. She does make a begrudging exception at Halloween, as this picture indicates.

Miss Zoe and Mr. Bailey
Style: Sure, they’re different species, but their fashion sense couldn’t be more in sync. To wit, you’ll often find them wearing the exact same outfit.

Style: Fashion PR exec, Sydney Reising, styles her pooch to the nines. Here, Ruby sports a Rodarte for Target denim jacket and a Hood by Air bandana.

Style: The Pomeranian’s tiny size belies her serious sense of style. As the pet pup of the fashion-obsessed Beckerman sisters, Marni’s love of accessories might stem from the fact that she’s often used as one herself. If you have a spare 17 seconds, this video of her modeling a mini Bjork swan dress is highly worth a watch.

Kitten in a Sambrero
Style: South of the border purr-fection. This little hombre recently made the rounds on Instagram. We don’t know where the photo originated from but we found it too darn cute not to include.

Style: Chinchillas don’t usually pay much attention to fashion (with such fabulous fur, why should they?), but Mr. Bagel can’t resist a good knit beanie.

Bodhi (a.k.a. Menswear Dog)
Style: This four-year-old Shiba Inu rose to fame for his spot-on taste in selvage denim, linen suits, and Gant Rugger oxford shirts. Now he’s hit the big time, modeling for the likes of The Tie Bar and Esquire.

Style: The wardrobe of this pint-size fashionista clocks in at over two hundred outfits. Among them? A Burberry-esque trenchcoat, an aviator ensemble, and a full-length cape, obvi.

Style: Given that he resides in Tokyo, Japan, you’d expect Mumitan’s aesthetic to be in keeping with the avant garde minimalist for which the city’s designers are known. Instead, this bunny hops to a different beat — one that’s all about bold colors, kitschy accents, and, oh yeah, Sherlock Holmes costumes.

Style: Neville is Marc Jacobs’ dog. So basically, he dresses better than most humans.

Style: With nearly 300,000 followers, this wide-eyed Chinese feline is clearly doing something right. Our guess? Her covetable collection of statement necklaces.

Style: We have a soft spot for this fashion underdog (pun intended) who suffers from an exaggerated overbite and wrinkly neck. A true gentleman, he’s partial to bowties and the occasional tuxedo jacket.

Style: This self-describe “fat and sassy” Frenchie is always ready for her close up. Her tastes tend to run towards the luxurious — yes, those are Christian Louboutins on her paws — but she also has a penchant for flirting with menswear.
