When you hear “animal sweater,” your initial thought may be an embroidered pony that Rachel Berry would (and has)
paired with a plaid skirt.
You wouldn’t be wrong to assume a Glee appearance, but in the case of these Urban Outfitters sweaters, think “Miu Miu’s cheeky cousin goes to the mall” instead.
The trio of tops by UO features swans, porcupines and a skunk (or is it a raccoon?). What puts us in a rut is that they’re not exactly Chanel cutesy (remember their infamous Penguin Sweater from 2007) or Christopher Kane growl-y (as seen on their crocodile and gorilla graphics). We’ll just assume -- like all things Urban Outfitters -- it’s supposed to be ironic, because there’s no better way to explain “runway-meets-reindeer-sweater.”
Get the animal sweaters for $54 at Urban Outfitters... or hold out for the Miu Miu version...
