Dazzling Wardrobe Choices
LSU women’s basketball coach, Kim Mulkey, has been grabbing attention during the March Madness tournament, not just for her coaching abilities but also for her remarkable wardrobe choices.
As the Tigers geared up for the national championship game against Iowa, Mulkey raised the fashion stakes, and unsurprisingly, she did not disappoint.
A Bold Fashion Statement for the Big Game
Mulkey is recognized for her daring fashion choices and stayed true to her style for the crucial game. She donned a striking, full tiger-striped pantsuit that was entirely reversible, featuring two-tone sequins.
This outfit was destined to turn heads and seize attention, which it successfully did.
Aiming for a Fourth National Championship
Sunday’s game offered Mulkey the opportunity to make a statement with her outfit while leading her team to victory and clinching her fourth national championship.

A Coach Admired for Her Style and Success
Mulkey’s distinctive style has garnered admiration not only for her coaching expertise but also for her fashion sense.
Her induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020 is a testament to her success as a coach, but Mulkey would undoubtedly be a top contender if there were a Hall of Fame for coaches making fashion statements.
Fashion Focus Amidst the Championship Game
The Tigers, boasting a 33-2 record, faced off against the Iowa Hawkeyes, with a 31-6 record, in the national championship game held at the American Airlines Center.
While the game itself promised to be intense, many eyes were on Mulkey and her fashion choices.
Her bold outfit selections, including the reversible tiger-striped pantsuit with two-tone sequins, have captured attention and admiration.
As she coached LSU in the national championship game, she had the opportunity to make history with her fourth national title, solidifying her legacy as both a coach and a fashion icon.
