From full brimmed hats, long skirts, white blouses and oversized woolen jackets/sweater to functional, fashionable, breathable and light weight colorful skorts, polos, sweaters and jackets, golf fashion has certainly seen some major changes over the past 90+ years.
to all those involved in this transformation, I say THANK YOU! I remember the
days that it was so impossible to find fun women’s collared shirts that I ended
up raiding my dad’s closet in an attempt to find something fun and then trying
to shrink it down to my size—not an awesome plan :-)–and for the bottoms, well let’s just
say those pleated knee-length khaki shorts were anything but stylish or
flattering. Todays clothing, as a whole,
is way more fun, fashionable all while being comfortable and easy to play in as well as clean.
doing some research, I went to the expert, Becca DiBona, the head of buying at
my club (thank you, Becca!!!) for golf fashion and functionality tips as well
as a lesson in the brands that are excelling in the various clothing areas—pants,
shirts, outerwear, etc.
good luck and happy shopping!!
