Dog walking Essentials

Get ready to master layering as we navigate the ever-changing weather during your dog walks. In the unpredictable climate of the UK, it's essential to be prepared come rain or shine. We recommend investing in practical, yet fashion forward waterproof outerwear and trusty wellies for those drizzly days to keep you dry and stylish.

Layering becomes your best friend during chillier days, and we recommend a gilet, cosy sweaters, thermal tops, and insulated jackets. This way you can be reactive to the seasons and layer up or down depending on the weather.

Opt for a practical bag that can accommodate all your essentials such as poo bags, sanitiser gel, keys, money, and phone, freeing your hands to throw the ball or hold the lead.

Outfit Ideas For Summer Dog Walks

When it comes to enjoying summer dog walks, here at Bonmarché, we have a range of outfit ideas perfect for those who want to stay chic and relaxed while spending quality time with their furry companions.

Start with a lightweight, breathable blouse or tunic in a vibrant print or pastel hue. Pair it with comfortable, elasticated waist trousers or leggings for easy movement, especially if you like to keep active by playing with your dog in the park.

When the temperature rises, opt for natural, breathable fabrics like cotton or linen to keep you cool on those warmer, sunny days. Complete your look with a pair of supportive, cushioned walking sandals that offer both style and stability.

Don't forget to accessorise with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to shield yourself from the sun and a crossbody bag to carry your essentials like dog treats, a water bottle, and suncream.

With these summer dog walking outfit ideas, you'll feel confident, comfortable, and ready to enjoy every adventure with your furry friend.

Outfit Ideas For Winter Dog Walks

Winter dog walks can be a wonderful experience, especially when you're dressed practically. We understand the importance of warmth, comfort, and style, and offer a range of winter outfit ideas to keep you looking fabulous during your outdoor adventures.

Start with a thermal, long-sleeved top as a base layer to keep you snug. Layer it with a soft, knitted cardigan or fleece jacket for added insulation. Pair these with stretchy, high-waisted trousers or leggings for ease of movement. To combat the chilly weather, slip into faux fur-lined boots that provide warmth and traction on slippery surfaces.

Don't forget to wear a chunky knit scarf, gloves, and a cosy beanie to keep your head and hands toasty. Lastly, invest in a waterproof and wind-resistant coat to shield you from the elements.
