Nike- It's time to wrap up warm!
by Carly Cummins
December 20, 2011

You may have noticed that in my last few blogs, courtesy of Nike, I've been dressed rather smartly and most importantly as temperatures plummet, warmly, sporting a lot of swooshes on my clothing!

Not only is Nike apparel stylish and very comfortable to wear it's packed full of technical features, which essentially explains why despite falling temperatures I've still been enjoying playing a round of golf even on those bitterly cold days. Want to get the look for your wardrobe? Here's an outfit that looks great and is very functional too...

Nike Novelty Golf Knee Socks (£20):

Cleverly hidden from sight beneath the waterproof bottoms but an absolute essential as far as I'm concerned. The only time I'd ever worn long socks before this pair arrived was on the ski slopes but I can't believe what I've been missing - wonderful warm feet and legs. Unlike the long socks you can buy on the high street, these golf socks have been designed to stay up without being uncomfortably tight around the calf.

Nike Thermal Golf Shirt (£35) :

An absolute essential as far as I'm concerned. This base layer top is lovely and soft against your skin, trapping heat yet preventing you from overheating. It has added panels that provide support in all the right places so that you can get into golf posture and maintain it.

Nike Global Golf Sweater (£50) :

For a lightweight jumper this is surprisingly warm. It fits like a glove preventing that horrible bagging you get from some bulky jumpers, again so that you can swing freely, but with the added layer of warmth.

Nike StormFit Waterproof Suit (£100):

This jacket has a very clever design with a hood that is stored in a zip compartment around your neck, which when not used gives you a lovely comfortable padded feeling, or in-use acts as a great added barrier to rain. The fit is snug thanks to Velcro adjusters so that you can swing and putt freely without the jacket getting in your way.

I must confess that the trousers are getting a touch dirty around the base but they are still more fashionable than the boring black trousers that most people choose. They're very comfortable, soft touch material, with an elasticated waist allowing you to tuck in all your layers of clothing neatly.

I like the little touches like the zip pockets so that your tees don't fall out as you walk and also the Velcro adjusters at the bottom of the leg so that you can keep the trouser tight around the shoe and save mud getting on your socks.

Nike Knit Hat & Scarf (£35) :

The final touches, that all-important headwear. The nice thing about this woolly hat is that it is very fashionable so you feel as though you can wear it on or off the course.

It also comes with a matching scarf to complement your look.
