For years, cats have been associated with crazy cat ladies, defined as single women with hoards of feline friends and a discomforting obsession therewith. And nothing screamed “crazy cat lady” quite like wearing clothing that featured—you guessed it—cats.

So, we've assembled our feline favorites so you can be the first to sink your claws into the trend...meow.
