This is the Year of the Dog. According to the 12-year-cycle of animals in the Chinese Zodiac, those born in the Year of the Dog are known for steadfast loyalty to family, friends and work. They are honest, just, and popular and like to help others fix their own bad habits. Previous Years of the Dog include 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970 and 1958.
Designers are creating looks inspired by the Year of the Dog.
