3 Bits of Fashion Inspiration from Netflix’s ‘Tiger King’

If you haven’t seen Netflix’s ‘Tiger King’ docuseries, you need to stop what you’re doing and go and watch it *now* – it’s crazy – and I’m not just talking about the fashion! Then come back and take a look at this post. Go on. You won’t regret it. I promise.

This documentary series follows G.W. Zoo Owner, Joe Exotic, as he spirals out of control amid a cast of other eccentric characters in this true murder-for-hire story from the underworld of big cat breeding. It’s really eye-opening (and there’s lots of gorgeous tigers to look at too).

It’s fascinating. As well as opening our eyes to the dark underworld of cub petting, and why animals like tigers shouldn’t be kept in cages, (not that we didn’t know that already!) I love the character’s wardrobes – animal prints, leather jackets and sequins – anyone who knows me, knows these are things I adore.


Camisole / Shirt / Pencil Skirt

Sequins are often seen on the oh-so-eccentric Joe Exotic. He’s flamboyant, so he can pull this off. He’s flamboyant, outspoken and seems to like teaming his sequin shirts with dark denim jeans.

So how would you wear sequins? For a smart look, go for a bold pink sequin shirt, tucked into smart black trousers or a pencil skirt. To rock sequins casually, I’d wear this stunning pencil skirt with a band tee tucked in, and a pair of biker boots. For a night out, I’d team this sequin camisole with frill detail with a pair of black or very dark jeans and a yellow pair of heels.

Cat Print

Shirt / Dress / Ankle Boots

Hey you cool cats and kittens! This one goes out to Carole Baskin, who’s life is filled with cat prints (or animal prints to the rest of us). Literally. Be it leopard, tiger or cheetah, she wears it and she clashes it – giving a whole new definition to the term ‘crazy cat lady’. (I’m not even going into any of the accusations regarding the disappearance of her ex husband!)

I’d wear the shirt tucked in to a pencil skirt – black or pick out the teal colour. The dress is perfect for a night out, with a longline black blazer and killer heels. The tiger and leopard boots would be perfect with a solid colour outfit, as a statement piece. I’m personally not into the clashing thing that Carole does, so I’d stick to one cat printed piece.

Leather Jackets

Tan Jacket / Retro 80s Jacket / Cropped Jacket

Jeff, Joe and the rest of them just love a leather jacket. And who could blame them? If you ask me, it’s a staple piece that should be in everyone’s wardrobe.

These biker style jackets are great, because you could dress them down with jeans or dress them up with a dress and a cute pair of ankle boots.
