If you want your pooch to be the leader of the most stylish pack, then click on over to piecesinc.com, a boutique owned by a former interior designer that stocks preppy chic pet accessories. You’ll find suede, shearling-lined collars ($62) and a cashmere dog sweater that could induce envy in humans ($140).
There’s some expected pink, yes, but you’ll find it on collars sporting bold geometric designs ($40) or dog beds wrapped in classic preppy stripes ($150). And if you prefer a simple, elegant look, Pieces has plenty, like the brown braided leash and collar ($51 and $33) or the Kelly green canvas dog bed that rolls up for travel ($195). There is the occasional rhinestone T-shirt ($35) or leopard print sweater ($75), because hey, even an elegant animal has to cut loose once in awhile.
