It’s an excuse to share silly pictures of questionable fashion choices, oversized coats, and animals clopping around in human clothes. What better way to pass the time during a post-holiday daze than laughing at silly photos of winter clothing instead of dreading the end of summer?

Many of the tweets simply highlighted some unique fashion choices:
