2016/2017 Runway: Top 20 Cats from the Catwalk

This year cats are taking over the fashion world. Even Vogue affirmed cats as the biggest trend on the runway. We've put together our list of top 20 cats from the 2016 and 2017 runway seasons.

 

1. Chanel Cat Purse

The subtle cat print sleeves and purse gives a classic aesthetic. To complete this look, we would add pearl earrings.

2. Dolce & Gabbana Sexy Kitten Dress

You can still look sexy on a date while letting a guy know you dig cats. A modern necklace channels this sexy look.

3. Marc Jacobs 80s Jazzercise Queen 

We envy this bomber jacket and nothing says "I'm here to party" like a cat with laser eyes. We think kitten earrings would make a purrfect match.

4. Stella McCartney Actual Cat as an Accessory

We wish that we could get away with carrying a cat around as we run errands. Unfortunately, our meowdels will only do so much for treats.

5. Paul & Joe Whimsy Cat Dress

Perfect for high noon tea or weekend brunch, we'd suggest pairing this with cute cat-faced earrings.

6. Loewe Cat Necklace

Nothing is more intimidating than the silently judging eyes of a huge leather cat necklace. We suggest pairing it with something a little more subtle.

7. Chanel Cat Bracelet

We love the delicate lashes and whiskers. Perhaps inspired by Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette. We suggest our bangle as a more affordable option.

11. Stella McCartney Tiger + Leopard Print

Why not wear your cat on your soldier like you're a pirate? Parrots aren't in fashion.

12. Gucci Jean Jacket

Giving off a more hippie vibe, some floral kitty earrings would match well.

15. Akris SIlk Tiger Jacket

Something fierce like this is bound to make an entrance. We'd pair with geometric earrings to complement its structure.

16. Gucci Sleeved Kitty Shirt

The model, Polina Oganicheva, looks like she's channeling Die Antwoord's YoLandi Visser. Meanwhile, her shirt has more of a "Vote for Pedro" Napoleon Dynamite vibe.

17. Stella McCartney Dress

This one has a Miss Universe-like band across the front, proudly proclaiming the joy and wonder of cats.

18. Stella McCartney Carpetbagger Jacket

If only Mary Poppins' carpetbag were made of a cat pattern. We love the simple collar.

This purse has an edgy metal strap contrasting feminine fabric patches.
