You’ve binged the show. You’ve seen the memes. Now it’s time to bring a little “Tiger King” fashion into your work-from-home, coronavirus-lockdown life.
Who better than Joe Exotic — with his Lisa Frank-leopard shirts, tight white pants, inexplicable EMT bomber jacket and that runaway eyebrow ring — to guide us through our sartorial time of need?
Or Carole Baskin? A queen of catleisure kaftans and holier-than-thou flower crowns may be the style icon we deserve right now.
And if you’re not secretly coveting one of Doc Antle’s harem “uniforms” (stolen straight from the “ThunderCats” wardrobe trailer), I don’t think we can be friends.
Even Jared Leto is letting his inner Tiger King run free, while fans are freaking out over Miley Cyrus and Joe Exotic sporting the same ‘do.
Look, we’ve been through a lot. With a lot worse set to come. Let’s just go ahead and embrace some Big Cat Energy. Right meow.
