Wherever fall golf finds you, these layering options and accessories provide function and fashion
By Suzanne S. Brown
WEAR IT AGAIN
Adidas’ Made to be Remade collection takes sustainability to the next level. Once a golfer finishes wearing a garment, it is sent back to the company, where it is shredded and turned into a new piece of clothing. Included in the lineup is a recycled polyester crewneck sweatshirt, perfect for cool fall rounds and clubhouse cocktails, $130.
Fall golf wear typically calls for a warmer color palette than spring apparel, so Tim Conlin, the creative director for Sport Haley, combined burgundy with dusty rose in pieces like the fleur-de-lis patterned, moisture-wicking sleeveless top, $97. It is paired with the Distance pants, $110, in a hybrid knit and stretch woven fabric.
THE COVER UP
When cooler temps call for a jacket, Sweden-based Galvin Green is ready with its Dason full-zip insulated jacket that is both warm and breathable. The recycled polyester fabric combines with elastane for stretch and function. With a muted print on the front and contrasting collar sleeves, it also stylish, $189.
With wide 1970s-style stripes on the water-repellent nylon front, insulation for warm and knit side panels for stretch, Original Penguin’s mixed-media vest packs function and fashion appeal, $140. It didn’t hurt Cameron Smith, who wore it to stave off the wind and chill of St. Andrews while winning the 150th Open Championship.
A roomy tote is a female golfer’s must-have travel companion. This fall she’ll be carrying Oliver Thomas’ Wanderlust Tote in quilted jacquard polyester. It has a trolley sleeve and multiple pockets inside and out to fit shoes, clothing, accessories and personal items. A zip pocket on the back has RFID blocking technology and slots for credit cards, $199.
Golfers who want to stand out rather than blend in on the course gravitate to Lucky in Love for its flirty, flounced skorts in alluring prints, and its figure-flattering tops—all in performance fabrics. Among fall’s top choices: the Palms D’Amour pleated skort with palm print, $100, topped with Royal Stripe rib tank, $78.
