Sweaters: Animal Style

While it is (ugly) Christmas sweater season, I am noticing a sweater trend that I rather like -- animal sweaters! So move over Mr. Snowman, Rudolph and Santa Hat-wearing penguins, it's all about dogs and sheep. Sausage Dog Sweater, Asos ($54.54, pictured). Weiner dogs are my fave, so I can't resist this dashing dachshund. Ah! How can you not love their little legs?

Chloe Printed Pullover Sweater, dELiA*s ($29.50, sale). If sausages aren't your steez, then maybe a poodle is? This prancing pooch looks lovely against a lavender knit.

Hop Along With Me Sweater, ModCloth ($55). My first pet was a bunny named Dusty. I think my mom loved him more than I did, and out of guilt, I pay homage to him by wearing this peachy sweater with a big fluffy rabbit.

Sheep Knit Sweater, Forever 21 ($17.80). The wolf in sheep's clothing? Nah. This is just a cute sweater. Baaaaa.
