Cats May Rule the Web, but Tigers Rule the Jungle

Shopping Girls, are you past being defined as “kittenish”, “feline”, “catty”, and the like? You’re protesting in your Pussy Hats, but you know you are channeling the Big Cats.

How about you bump it up a notch, turn the volume up to 11, and have a little fun shocking your competition?

Tiger themed athletic wear not only looks awesome and distinctive, but it will keep you visible (check out the Tiger bicycle shirt), and even do a good job of distracting and intimidating your opponents in competitive sports.

Typically bold, unapologetic, and verging on (if not gleefully embracing) the garish, tiger-themed gear is iconic and ideal for sports wear, but you can also incorporate it into your wardrobe in other unique ways.

Tiger apparel often features the kind intense, bright colors that even a Shopping Girl may be missing out on in her wardrobe. What a great way to add some flash and on-trend personality to your core closet pieces! You won’t need additional accessories–a plus for athletic wear–and sports fabrics are designed to be wrinkle-free and ready to play when pulled from your gym bag, backpack, or tote.

If you’re more into neutrals, but like the idea of the iconic zing, you can definitely find tiger prints and graphics in your favorite tones.

To mature Shopping Girls who have loved animal prints their whole lives: Do you shy away from your gorgeous and flattering leopard print apparel now that you could be mislabeled (or correctly labeled) a cougar? Change it up and move to tiger patterned prints. They offer a whole new character and symbology, vibrant and dynamic. Wouldn’t you rather be called a tiger anyway?

While many Tiger-themed apparel items are tailored for men’s bodies, athletic styles and fabrics tend to be more unisex in fit. With stretchy fabrics and roomy cuts, finding audacious sports gear that suits your figure and activities shouldn’t be a hassle. The Oversized Look is super-hot this season, so a pair of baggy, outrageous men’s boxing shorts might be just what you need for a night of bowling or playing pool at the neighborhood bar.

These wonderfully garish boxing shorts are offered by Farabi Sports, a respected brand of authentic boxing, martial arts, and other sports gear and apparel. Retro, super-hero, classic and trendy all at once, these are real fighting shorts, not just for show. Reminiscent of ’70s satin hot pants that mimed the look, these legit Thai boxing ring shorts feature a snarling embroidered Tiger patch design front and center. Great features include the super lightweight fabric with moisture-wicking “nano-pore” technology for ventilation; a wide, multi-stitched elastic waistband for secure fit even over protective gear (if you are so inclined); and side-slits for freedom of movement. This waistband style is also great if you are wearing hand gear such as gloves, as it’s still easy to adjust your shorts with the gloves on. Few garments are more selfie-worthy. In the midst of a thousand runners at the 10K event, your friends will still be able to easily spot you to capture celebratory finish-line photos.

Paladin Tiger Bike Shirt Shorts, not as feline, sorta dull by comparison

The Paladin King’s Breathable Cycle Jersey comes in this super visibility Tiger theme. This is a men’s cut but, due to the stretchy, breathable, poly/spandex fabric, you should be able to rock this without a problem. Coordinating men’s bike shorts are available, but they are lacking in graphic appeal by comparison. Wear your own bike shorts in black or one of the Tiger colors. Or try this with shredded jeans and an oversized, nerdy cardigan. If you’re bold enough (and you are), this would also be astonishing worn with a slim black maxi or mini skirt, leatheresque pants or capris–or even a chiffon circle skirt–and elbow-length gloves in black satin. Give your hair a Farrah Flip, and minds will be suitably blown.
