Golf Tip Tuesday: What To Wear

One of the things Kate, my main character, struggles with is what to wear when she's playing golf. She wants to look good (you know, good) for her crush. Unfortunately there's a lot of twisting and bending in golf. And she forgets to do the bend-over test before a big tournament. Yeah. Not good.

Dress code is important in golf. I remember being in a KFC with my husband a few years ago and the local golf team walked in.

You know how I knew?

Teenage boys wearing khakis and collared shirts. Dead giveaway. Preppy.

So what's a girl to do? Back when I was playing junior golf, they didn't have cute outfits for girls who played. You had to sort of make do--skorts and your mother's collared shirt. But today's girls have so many more choices. There are even websites devoted to clothing for girl's golf.

Here's a whole pinterest board devoted to golf wear for girls. 

I'm not sure who these girls are, but they look good. And they are right in line with the dress code. But I do wonder if they've done the bend-over test. Kate would approve.

I like cute little skorts for golf! Due to the bend over factor.
I haven't golfed in so long! But I like the preppy look for boys and girls!

I have a soft spot for the preppy look, too, Kelly!

Laura Pauling said...

Could I golf in capris? :)

Kristine Asselin said...

You can totally golf in capris, Laura! I live in my capris all summer!

Those are cute outfits.

Since I've been gone for the month of August, I'm glad to be catching up on your blog. Good to 'see' you!

Another reason, I am not a golfer - I don't have the legs for it. Haha! :)

Proper attire or dress code is really important in playing golf. Yes, there are a lot of websites that offers golf apparel and accessories.
