We imagine some folks look at a Poodle Skirt and ask, "Why is there a dog there?" Well, did you know that prompting the question was pretty much the point? That's right! The original Poodle Skirt had a trio of doggies on a seamless felt skirt. It was all designed as a quick-to-create Christmas skirt and went wild at the shops. The dogs were flirty, snobby, and the third was a bit of a hound dog! The curious appliques were there to get folks chatting. It was a genuine fashion statement.
Of course, the design has evolved a bit over time. Simple felt often has more comfy fabric, now, and the doggos are sometimes replaced by other quirky designs. Music notes or hot rod cars are always a popular option and the trio of pups is now typically just one of the peppy poodles. Either way, the design is just as much of a fun spin on fashion as it ever was and you can bring the whole look to life in just a couple of clicks.
