Tried & Tested: Fashion for the Fairways Special
Carly Frost - Golf Today's Ladies Editor - April 2012

Spring has sprung!

With the sun shining and the daffodils in bloom we're all beginning to think about freshening up our wardrobe in time for the summer, so this week we are giving you the ultimate temptation to go shopping - a special fashion showcase.

We've sought out the must-have Spring Collections from some of golf's leading ladies apparel brands and have chosen a selection of 'real' lady golfers rather than the usual catalogue pictures of models, so you can actually see how the clothes look and fit on a typical player like you.

We asked each lady to give them their feedback and have listed the stockist details rather than the price tag as it varies from shop to shop, so step forward the lovely ladies...

Sian wears...

Callaway Golf 'Spring in Paris' Collection: Excalibur Skort & Ice Yellow Polo

Sizes S-XL,

"The skort is incredibly lightweight and made from a lovely soft, comfortable material that fits beautifully.

The shirt was also nicely fitted and very comfortable although I wasn't overly keen on the length but I can see the benefit of it being designed to sit over the skort rather than tuck it in."






Christine wears...

Callaway Golf 'Eclectic Prep'Collection: Prep Plaid Bermuda Short & Hot Coral Short Sleeve Polo

Sizes S-XL,

"This is a really bold and vibrant outfit and not colours I would normally go for but I've had loads of compliments wearing it.

The Bermuda Shorts are a fantastic fit and very slimming. They are lovely and lightweight. The skirt has a nice shapely fit and soft material against the skin, the type that doesn't crease - so thumbs up for no ironing!"




Carly wears...

FootJoy Short Sleeve Pique Shirt, FootJoy DryJoys Rain Jacket & Nike Tech Classic Rise Trousers

Sizes XS-XL, or

"FootJoy isn't a brand name I'd normally associate with Polo Shirts but I was really impressed with this 'no thrills' cotton T. It was lovely and soft against the skin, fitted perfectly and was comfortable to wear. I think it will be a popular choice to have crested with club or county emblems. The jacket was very high quality and had great shape although I would have preferred a few more adjustable toggles at the sides to bring it in to allow the arms to swing the putter freely. The trousers are a fantastic lightweight alternative to waterproofs on a sunny day as the material repels water if you're caught in a shower."

Amy wears...

Galvin Green Noreen Trousers in Wild Rose, Cathy Sweater in Indigo/Wild Rose/Powder Pink, Mandy Polo in Wild Rose and Sandy Visor in Wild Rose.

Sizes XS-XL,

"Definitely an outfit for the bold at heart and I love it! It's young and funky and suits my flamboyant style on the course!

I particularly love the pink trousers which fitted perfectly and looked amazing. The diamond pattern sweater is the perfect complement and the polo underneath is snug and fitted to the skin but you definitely need a size bigger than you think because it clings to all the bumpy bits!"


Bea wears...

Ping Collection Destiny Polo in Sunshine, Libra Cut-Offs & Faith Sweater

Sizes 10-20,

"This is the perfect outfit for a spring day, the cut-offs are a great fit and I love the subtle check.

The polo shirt is made from really comfortable material and the piece-de-resistance is the sweater with a clever zipped front that makes it look like a cardigan - a great look."



Mags wears...

Tommy Hilfiger Abby Sleeveless Polo in Midnight, Alyssa Striped Sweater in White/Midni and Arielle Solid Pant in Cardinal

Sizes XS - XXL,

"Red is definitely not a colour I'd normally go for in trousers but in this case I love them! They look fantastic with the co-ordinating navy and white striped jumper, I felt a bit like a sailor! It is unusual to come across a pair of trousers that are the right length for my tall frame but these were perfect and the fit was spot-on. The sweater had some lovely button detailing across the shoulders and the sleeveless shirt had a nice open v-neck - great for summer golf."

Carly wears...

Nivo 3Dimentional Collection: Polo in black (pattern) & FootJoy Waterproof Trousers

Sizes XS - XL, and

"Nivo is a new Canadian golf clothing company that caught my eye a few months ago and I've been dying to try on one of their polos and yes it is every bit as comfortable as it looks. The material is soft and stretchy to fit and allow swing freedom and the funky pattern very stylish. Best of all it has UPF built into the fabric to protect your skin on a sunny day. The FootJoy Waterproof trousers were equally comfortable and I was delighted to find a pair that finally fitted my 27 inch leg length perfectly. The waist is high and certain to keep you dry without feeling like you are going to overheat - the perfect combination."

Sian wears...

Nivo 3Dimentional Collection: Polo in black, Sweater in Sharp Green & Black Pant

Sizes XS - XL,

"I absolutely love this look, the lime green sweater is right up my street and looks amazing. The tight knit is very flattering and fitted perfectly. The trouser material wasn't as nice and reminded me of the feeling of wearing waterproofs, OK in the spring but perhaps a little too warm on a summer's day but handy for when you get caught out in a shower I guess."

Carly wears...

Glenmuir Darvel Cut-Offs in White & Orla Gilet in Lagoon/White

Sizes XS - XL,

"Glenmuir always used to be a brand I'd associate with styling the more mature lady golfer but I'm excited to see that they have introduced a modern range which looks great no matter what your age.

The cotton cut-offs were a lovely fit, the high waist won't appeal to everyone, but with the sleeveless cotton gilet sitting perfectly just over the hips the look really worked.

I also like the idea of being able to wear a sleeveless sweater on a spring day, your arms still get the sunshine but your body gets that bit of extra warmth from the cooler air temperatures."

Bea wears...

Ping Collection Serenity Polo in Cerise & Gabriel Trousers in Black

Sizes 10-20,

"I love the vibrant pink polo shirt - it's a fantastic summer colour. The fit feels very luxurious, I like the fact the polo has that bit of extra length to sit nicely over the waist line so that you don't feel self-conscious when you swing. There is lovely detailing on the stitching and the big buttons add a stylish touch to the front. The trousers were also stylish and a great fit and very flattering around all the bumpy bits!"
