CLASSIC GLEN PLAID

Nothing defines golf clothing more than the historic glen plaid.  Plaids are offered in hundreds of colors and various plaids, but I favor the plaid in soft tans, whites and blacks.  The combination has a clean, traditional look.  Chic Tradition collection offers the 20 inch long skort with 3 pleat front panel, 20 inch long short, 26 […]

WALKING SHORTS AND CAPRIS THAT FIT AT THE WAIST

I don’ like wearing golf shorts or capris that are low-rise and not long enough to cover my upper thighs.  I find them uncomfortable and not flattering to my thickened waistline.  So, I designed pieces that look great on everyone.

I love golf. I love wearing golf clothes. What I don’t love is not finding golf clothes that look good on my middle-aged body. A staple that used to be in my golf attire was the skort. But today’s skorts are just too short. I need skorts that are at least 20 inches in length […]

GOLF SKORTS AND THE OLDER WOMAN

There is a misconception that older women golfers should no longer wear skorts on the course. I think I know why this ‘rule’ was established. Today’s golf skorts are generally 12 to 17 inches in length, so you better have young, thin and flawless legs to look good wearing them. Many years ago golf skorts […]

COLOR AND ANIMAL PRINTS

Animal prints in women’s golf clothing doesn’t always have to be black, while and brown. Check out GoldenWear’s Panther River collection. Vivid jewel colors in sapphire, espresso and peridot green just pop when paired with swirls of colors.

GOLDENWEAR RULES FOR LARGER WOMEN ON THE COURSE

Not all women golfers are young, slim and fit. Quite the contrary, many women golfers are middle-aged or older and wear large or extra large tops and size 14 to 18 bottoms. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find those sizes in golf and resort shops. It’s even more difficult to find bottoms and tops that match. […]

GAUCHO PANTS ARE SO CHIC

A casual, chic look pant that is timeless is wearing the gaucho pant. The design just works for all women. Gaucho pants can be soft and extra wide-legged or can be form fitted and structured. But, the gaucho’s trademark is the length, which is mid-calf. My gaucho pant is a piece in my Coronado Collection. […]

SLEEVELESS TOPS IN XX-LARGE

I design for the older woman, so I design tops that are kind to the upper arm. We older women are sensitive to that area. But when the weather is hot and I’m out on the golf course, I break my ‘must wear sleeves’ rule. I throw caution to the wind and expose my arms. […]

NOT A PLUS SIZE AND NOT AN AVERAGE SIZE

Finding stylish pants for women who are large and tall is not easy, Most manufacturers focus in pant sizes 6 to 12, and are designed for women who are under 5′ 7″. If you’re a woman who is 5’10” or 6′, long pants usually look like three quarter lengths. I’ve listened to the taller woman […]

BRING ON THE BLING!

I recently played in a ladies tournament at my former country club. The annual two-day event is always met with great enthusiasm from members and guests because it’s launched with a fabulous evening cocktail/shopping party. The vendors at the parties are generally local shop-owners and artisans displaying all kinds of clothing, jewelry, and accessories. However, […]
