Incoming Fashion Trend: Tiger faces

tiger-print-tops

Tigers seem to be having a bit of a fashion “moment” right now.

It must be nice for them. It’s normally leopards who get to have their print emblazoned on everything, but while there’s a lot of that around too at the moment, our force have noticed an increase in the number of t-shirts, tank tops and, er, body suits, with giant tiger faces on them.

This trend feels like another throwback to the 80s: there were a fair few tigers around then, too, and that makes us find it hard to see this kind of thing as anything other than tacky, but of course, that could just be our anti-80s radar talking. What do you think? Will you be walking around with a giant tiger on your chest this winter, or do you want us to cuff ’em?

    Cuff ’em and lock them up where they will never ever again see the light of day!

    eeeep…the body suit tiger looks angry/hypnotic/psychotic/ready to attack the wearer’s crotch or the observer’s….i’d give a girl in that one a wide girth methinx
    i could possibly get into the tiger print if their faces weren’t involved

    At least these are processed photos rather than cheesy artists’ impressions with added jungle leaves, so don’t have the same “look at me, I’m scary and exotic, just like a tiger” vibe that the 80s version had. Mind you #1 just looks scary…

    I like (some) 80s fashion but this ain’t it. The body suit looks like it has pubic hair painted onto the crotch. Which makes it even more classy.

    I totally want the tank top! It’s sooo cute!! With some denim shorts, flip flops, I’m wearing one to the beach next summer. But the bodysuit looks like its about to bite the wearer on the crotch.
