FASHION | Easy Tiger

It’s something a little different from me today – a bloody fashion post ! I have featured them on the blog in the past but they are very few and far between.

Hey … What can I say I’m mixing it up for 2019.

I don’t claim to know anything about fashion. I’m a big believer in wearing whatever the hell you like ; I absolutely hate being told what I should be wearing … BUT one thing we can’t ignore and are all fully aware of is that Leopard print has been big business for many years now.

I guess I’ve been channeling my inner Bet Lynch since the late 90’s . I love sporting my Grans vintage leopard print jacket . That jacket is older than me , she’s falling apart at the seams [ quite literally ] but I can’t bear to part with her.

Just recently though my eyes have been swayed … I’m being disloyal to Bet. I’ve found I’ve become slightly obsessed by Tigers, mainly their heads on jumpers !

I know, I know I’m strange and probably very late to the table but what can I say?!

Let’s say it started here …

My first purchase from Wardrobe 21 . I snapped this jumper up in the sale for just £10.00.

It arrived yesterday and I excitedly tried it straight on . My Boyfriend looked at me unimpressed and said “you do realise you are 48 not 14 ...”

HUH what do men know?

It’s bright, cheerful and I love her. Yes I may look like I’m about to present a children’s TV programme but who cares. Life is made for Tiger Jumpers!

Here’s my pick of the best out there [ in my non-fashionista opinion]

@wardrobeat21 on instagram £10.00

Isn’t she a beauty ?! I’m not sure if there are any remaining but if you can get your hands on one I’d definitely recommend. Great quality and fit AND fabulous price

OASIS – Mid Grey Tabby Tiger Curve Jumper – £40.00 reduced to £24.00

MAMA LICIOUS – Maternity Dress reduced from £45.00 to £36.00

HUSH -Tiger Print Striped Jumper reduced from £110.00 to £75.00 [ only medium and large available]

I’ve seen this a few times on my instagram feed. Its lush … can you believe I’ve never bought anything from Hush? Who am I ?!

KAREN MILLEN – Slouchy Tiger Jumper reduced from £110.00 to £75.00

This is a beautiful jumper, I love how the tiger print runs onto the back of the jumper.

LIQUORISH – Tiger & Flower Jumper reduced from £50.00 to £12.50 [only medium and large available]

LIPSY – Tiger Satin Panel Jumper £28.00

KENZO – Striped Tiger Patch Jumper Reduced from 360.00 to £180.00

KENZO – Tiger Jumper £171.75

Love both the Kenzo jumpers … can’t afford them but wants in on the tiger vibe [ holds hand up ] Well luckily for you I have the perfect solution below.

Just take an existing jumper and add the embroidered tiger brooch. Similar look for an affordable price.

PROMOD -Woven Tiger Brooch & Pins £12.95

VALENTINO – Magla Tiger Jumper £1,426.00 reduced to £570.00

Now I realise this is absolute daft wonga … but in an ideal world where money was no object [ if only eh ] I’d snap this up.

Unfortunately it’s not an ideal world; I have a big mortgage to pay and people to feed [ mainly me and my cake obsession…] so I’m holding out for Primark’s version – pink and red tiger. Stuff of dreams.

So there are just a few of my favourites … [ I’ve opened a tigers-head worm hole!]

Hopefully you feel suitable inspired, one of them caught your eye or perhaps tigers aren’t your bag. Either way Thankyou for popping across and having a read …

Until next time, Tracey x

    Tiger suits you but not me, neither do all leopard but I agree , wear what you feel comfortable in!
    Fashion goes around and comes around if you keep stuff long enough!

      Thanks for popping across Sue. Too much emphasis on what we should and shouldn’t be wearing in my opinion . As long as your comfortable and feel good that’s all that matters … even jumpers that your BF says make you look like You’ve nicked it from a 14 year old 😄 x
