Golf Dress

A simple golf dress is the perfect piece to add to your summer wardrobe. This crisp white dress from Athleta is made with a woven fabric that's soft and supple, plus it features light compression and all-way stretch.  Throw a cardigan over your shoulder for the ultimate sporty girl look. Finish the look off with a visor and a pair of white sneakers. If you're looking to head to a more formal affair after 18 holes, skip the visor and throw a blazer on top of the golf dress and pair it with mesh heels.

Cropped Top and Pleated Mini Skirt 

Skirts are also a popular choice on the course. We love this pleated high-rise option from Lululemon because it's made with a stretchy, mesh fabric that is as perfect for a day of golf or tennis as it is for brunch with friends. On top, add a cropped poplin button-up, like this one from Dynamite, to add a preppy-chic vibe. Keep the accessories simple but functional, like a belt bag and a pair of crew socks.

Polo Shirt and Pleated Midi Skirt 

Polo shirts and golf are a match made in fashion heaven! This sleeveless cotton check polo from Lacoste adds a nice splash of colour on top of a neutral pleated midi skirt, like this one from Aritizia. The midi length gives off a vintage golf attire feel. Stay fabulous all day long with cat eye sunnies, a neutral crossbody bag, and lug sole loafers.

Polo Sweater and Trousers

If you're looking to dip your toe in this trend, you can't go wrong with a preppy cropped polo sweater paired with wide-leg cargo pants. This look is elevated but comfy, making it perfect for a casual dinner, or a girl's night. Complete the look with rectangular sunnies, a white structured bag, and a pair of flat black sandals.
