You’ll Want to Sport This Golf Gear On and Off the Course by Rachel Besser
Outdoor sports like golf, tennis, and pickleball took off in the height of the pandemic as a much-needed reprieve from days spent inside. It didn’t take long for designers like Tory Burch, Malbon, and Byrdie to get in on the fun, reimagining clothes that are as technically savvy as they are stylish to wear on and off the course.
While tennis has crisp whites and pleated skirts, golf style was in need of a refresh from argyle socks and preppy V-necks. Thankfully that arrived, and now the best golf clothes for women are also things you might want to wear off the course, too. Designers are leaning into pieces that harken back to golf’s most stylish days (when golfers like Gary Player and Arnold Palmer sported cardigans, sweater vests, and trousers), but now they’re done up in sweat-wicking materials and more fashion-forward cuts.
Here, shop some of the best golf clothes for women on the market, from polished sweater vests to easy-to-wear dresses to bucket hats and more things you’ll want to sport even if you’re not teeing it up.
A sporty dress is the workhorse of any golf wardrobe. It’s typically designed with a collar, above-the-knee hemline, and in a performance fabric (stretch cotton piqué, for example). From there, look for differentiating details like pleating, zippers, and racing stripes that lend a preppy touch. You’ll find a classic golf dress from perennial favorites like Lacoste, that’s for sure, or you can skew more unexpected with a piece like Kule’s grassy green polo dress crafted in terrycloth.
