When packing for a trip, you always pick your cutest outfits, right? Why should packing for your pup be any different? Not only do dog clothes serve practical purposes, like keeping your pooch warm and dry, but they also attract a lot of attention for your furry friend.

Dogs are social creatures by nature, and an adorable outfit encourages perfect strangers to pay lots of attention to your well-appointed pooch, which is highly likely to get that tail wagging. Not all dogs are good candidates for clothing, but that doesn't mean you still can't style up your pup. There are tons of cute collars on the market. You can also choose jewelry that attaches to their collars, complete with gemstones and pearls. If you want to turn your pooch into a princess for the night, get her some bejeweled headgear, like barrettes or even a tiara.

We all know there's nothing like a little doggy bling to start the conversation. Whatever your style, here are some tips for packing for your four-legged fashionista that won't push you over that pesky 50-pound-bag limit.
