How Women’s Golf Fashion

When golf first became popular with women in the 1800s, the Victorian Age ruled the earth as well as the golf course. Conventional Victorian fashion of the time had lady golfers dressed like they were going to an afternoon tea. Picture straw bowler hats, skirts that hit the floor, high neck blouses and formal buttoned shoes. These ladies looked more like they might be going to the opera than taking in a game of golf.

The Pain of Fashion

How these women could manage to swing and walk the greens is a mystery to us these days. It’s hard to imagine the scene today. Modern women’s golf fashion combines style and function. How women’s golf fashion has changed over the years can be summed up in practicality. Try wearing a 19th century Victorian dress and your next summer golf outing, and you’ll see what we mean.

Why Not Look Good and be Practical?

A 1922 edition of Vanity Fair showed off a Burberrys Tweed, self belted golf suit for the latest in ladies’ golf fashions. It was the first attempt to really combine the fashion and function that today’s women golfers demand. Who wants to dress in the tweed and wool of the 1920s on a hot day on the golf course?

At the same time, who wants to dress like a man, especially when you consider how bad men’s fashions have been in the sport of golf? Why can’t a woman golfer look good and still be proud of being a woman when she hits the green?

Fashion that Makes Sense

Today’s leading golf designers understand the woman golfer’s need for style and function. Golf is a social game, after all, but it’s also a mobile game. You are out with friends, family and business associates. It’s natural you want to look beautiful with all the privileges of being a lady. At the same time, you’re in the hot sun traversing the golf course green. You’ve got to be practical. Why can’t you have beautiful lady’s golf fashions that also make sense? Why not look good and be practical at the same time?

Post-Holiday Budget Crunch Fashion

You might have realized by now that the winter holiday season is not for the faint of wallet. Between food, drinks and supplies for hosting holiday parties, gift-giving, and shopping for party outfits and cold weather gear, these holidays can outstretch the finances of even the wealthiest of merrymakers. That’s why this New Year’s season, we reached out to thin-pocketed fashion college students who are awfully good at making a little bit of cash really last. Luckily, we ended up with some great tips on how to hang on to your dollar bills in the early days of 2013 by hitting the thrift stores and being smart about what you buy.

1. Not all thrift shopping is created equally. If your post-holiday budget is stretched extremely tight, it’s important to dismiss the common misconception that all secondhand clothes shopping is inexpensive. For those of you that live in bigger cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles or New York City, you will definitely have noticed by now that it majorly depends where you go looking if you are truly trying to find a bargain. In order to keep it extra thrifty this January, avoid smaller vintage boutiques where the staff hand-selects all of their merchandise. Instead, hit up bigger thrift warehouses like Goodwill or the Salvation Army. Sure, these places might require a little bit more time digging around to find your special treasures, but the prices are so cheap, it will be well worth the extra time.

2. Try everything but do NOT buy everything. Start your second semester of the school year at fashion colleges with a sleek and stylish late winter look. In order to accomplish this look, a great strategy is to combine any clothes (sweaters, boots, scarves, etc… ) you might have collected over Christmas and Hannukah from various gifts with some special, new thrift shop finds. Even at a super cheap second-hand clothing emporium, experienced shoppers often report that they still rack up quite a bill just off of the sheer temptation to buy too much stuff because of the reasonable prices. Avoid this temptation! Careful shoppers know that a few unique thrift accents can take your wardrobe a long way. No need to buy everything!

3. Look for unique, one-of-a-kind stuff. Most young fashion designers or designers in training at fashion schools recognize the importance of individual style. That being said, almost anybody (designer or not) would feel mortified if they walked into school, work or any other event and they were wearing the same outfit as somebody else!

Thrift shopping comes in handy in a major way when it comes to keeping one’s wardrobe selections unique. Think about it this way: There is a much higher chance of dressing like somebody else if you stick to shopping only at major retail chains like H&M or The Gap. The trick is to hit up secondhand or vintage stores and hone in on whatever really unique clothing or accessories you find that speak to you. There is much less of a likelihood that the store you are at will even have more than one of whatever item you like in stock, so you can pretty much always go home knowing that nobody else around will be rocking that same look. This way you can be careful about money AND promote your individual style.

Fall and Winter Fashion Trends

For those who want to be on top of this fall and winter’s fashion trend, you should definitely familiarize yourself with the following three fashion movements. They are the Victorian Charm, Sophisticated Classic, and Military Style. They’re also our main focus for the upcoming seasons. These trendy fashions have been previewed on the runways of Milan, London, Paris and New York City by some of the most famous and popular designers of our generation.

Sophisticated Classic

The gratuitous use of velvet and suede, two of the most elegant and stylish materials created, gives the Sophisticated Classic collection its charm. These materials are particularly popular on coats and business suits. Dark purple and dark blue are the prevailing colors of choice by clothing designers who use them to set a classy and romantic tone. To add a more dazzling attitude, designers like John Galliano include a touch of bright yellow in his dark blue collections. This intense color contrast creates a fabulous and stunning effect. A brightly colored handbag can also give you the same alluring effect throughout the fall and winter. In addition, lime green, remains a very popular color for the upcoming seasons and can be the perfect accent accessory.

Victorian Charm

Lace, the focal point of in this design, is widely used by many popular designers. For the “Victorian Charm” effect, silk floral laces are used in abundance to embellish the neckband and the sleeve cuff on for dresses and blouses. Mixing and matching is the key to wearing laces. In this season, designers will match lace blouses and dresses with cowboy jackets, military coats, leather caps and jeans. Mixing and matching adds a playful and casual touch and it also preserves the glamour of the Victorian era.

Military Style

Although the military style was already popular on last fall season, it is still a big hit this coming fall. However, designers this year are trying even harder to reduce the cold military feeling. For example, in Burberry Prorsum collections, you see military style coats that come with simple metal buckles and smaller collars. You will find this fall season’s military style collections are more feminine than those you saw last year. One thing to notice, buckle on jeans seems to be a big hit in the world of fashion this fall.
