This is the truth: Animal sweaters—nay, sweaters with giant animal faces emblazoned on them—are having a moment right now. Celebrities are proudly donning everything from roaring tigers and fang-baring snakes to angry T-Rexes and sharks on their chests. Bizarre? A little bit. But are we on board? Fo sho.
Here’s the thing about sweaters with giant animals on them—their weirdly adorable and ugly all at once. Which is FASHION, people! If you can’t stop staring at it, then you know it must be “in.” Gucci has a major stake in the game right now, as you can see here:
Buuuut, this pretty pup costs $1,500. If you can afford that (we’re jealous!), you need to click purchase now, pair those adorable nautical stripes with some white skinny jeans this spring and never, ever look back. But if a month’s rent is a wee bit too much for you to drop on a top, we get it. Below are 15 other on-point animal sweaters in a variety of prices that should satisfy all budgets (and tastes!) out there. If you’re a giraffe-lover, for instance, Kate Spade’s got you, boo. If you’re more of a prepster, we recommend the glittery whale or Brooks Brothers’ mallard ducks. If you’re just a gal who wants to be seen, the Diesel flamingo number is the only way to go.
So let’s all make like we’re eight-years-old again and jump on this animal sweater trend. Because at the very least, we’re all sure to be super cozy in them this spring.
