In last month’s issue, I presented our golf fashionista readers fresh ideas for their Fall golf wardrobes. Goodness, it’s nearly November and if you didn’t feel it last month, you are certainly sensing the cooling of temperatures now. It’s time to put the racerback tops, shorts and bright neons to the back of your closets. While you may have a nice selection of cool weather clothes, most of us will want to add a newcomer outfit (or two or three) to your cache. Plus who doesn’t want to take a peek at this season’s new offerings from our favorite brands?
I researched several popular golf fashion companies and presented an outfit from each that exemplifies their upcoming collections. Last month we started with a vignette of seven. This month, as promised, I am rounding out the list to get us warmed up to golfing in the cooler months ahead.
I begin with Anatomie, a brand that focuses on designer travel wear, but has become wildly popular with golfers. They are known for lightweight, wrinkle free apparel with a modern fashion edge. I met Jennifer Thompson, Divisional Sales Manager at the 2023 PGA show and discovered that you can find a section on their website dedicated to golf and tennis. You may just fall for this slim-fit vest with a high collar and quilted design with a zip out hood and antique brass trims. The new collection screams fall colors.
G-Lifestyleis known for bright multi-hues, takes us in a colorful direction for Fall. They are introducing The Wild Orchid – their Signature Bloom for Fall 2023. G-Lifestyle drew inspiration from the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands (where we may head for a cool weather break) for this exclusive pattern in a collection that captures the essence of the tropical paradise. Carry a slice of Hawaii wherever you go, from the course to that flight to paradise.
Ralph Lauren is the most iconic brand on my list. It’s been over 50 years since the first Ralph Lauren polo came to the market. I think they are one of the best apparel companies to stay on trend. Exemplified by this quilted and lightly filled vest that reverses from a solid-hued side to a color-blocked side. It also features a water-resistant shell. Perfect for layering and the morning drizzle. For their high-performance golf line, look for RLX.
Swing Control has been making golf fashion since I graduated from high school in 1979 (ouch, awhile back). And like me, they keep it fresh and new (ha, I never stop trying!) I fell in love with the brand when I tried on a pair of pants with built in tummy control. Yep, wide, gut tucking elastic waistbands in modern and current designs. Love it! This is a company founded by avid golfers with a serious commitment to style. This season, they present us with a sporty sleeveless mock neck in baby pique with a white contrast trim and a linen 4 pocket bottom with faux-horn button details at the hem. And of course their signature tummy control integrated into the waistband. It’s an overall clean, modern sophisticated and monochromatic look.
My favorite newcomer to the scene is TJ Golf (Taylor Jordan). Their looks aren't too funky or crazy. They are clean and classic and can be a bit edgy, as well. You can work up a sweat in these clothes. For this article, they presented me the Sport Tight, maybe the most comfortable golf pants you will own. It offers two back pockets and two side pockets to hold all your golfing essentials. This heavier technical fabric will keep you warm and offer some much loved compression. They suggest to pair it with their Lightweight hoodie for a comfortable, athletic look.
TzuTzu Sport is always a head turner, whether you are wearing one of their flirty tops, skorts or dresses. They are never short on pattern, color and small details. This Fall’s “Jelly Bean” top has a fitted bodice with princess seams for a most flattering look on a long sleeve top. It has a stand-up collar, quarter zip and ruching detail at the wrists for that extra touch. Hitting the green in a wide range of colors and patterns is sure to spark a confident and fun attitude, no matter your handicap.
