Introduction to Women's Winter Golf Attire

Welcome back to another guide to seasonal golf fashion!  Your go-to destination for embracing style and comfort on the greens, even as the temperatures drop. 

 

Here, we believe that winter golf isn't just about playing the sport you love; it's about thriving in style and confidence, no matter the weather. Say goodbye to the days of oversized jackets hindering your perfect swing, and bid farewell to shivering in clothes not meant for the chill. It's time to welcome elegant layering, thermal fabrics, chic accessories, and the harmonious marriage of fashion and functionality.

 

When we set out to build VivanTee, the goal was to create an all-inclusive brand.  As women have grown so largely into the sport, the one area we continue to hear from our female peers on the fairway, is how hard it is to find good golf clothes.  The purpose of this article is to integrate fashion trends into your golf attire.  Not all the pieces we will be displaying will be golf-specific, but it gives you a way to offer your own unique style for extra confidence on the tee box.  We are a bit biased, but we also believe our golf gloves will go perfectly with many of these pieces!

 

So, whether you're a seasoned golfer looking to add a touch of flair to your winter game, or you're new looking to understand golf clothing and look your best while braving the colder months on the course, there is something for you!

 

Pull out your clubs, ladies—it's time to conquer the course and the cold, one stylish swing at a time!

You can't go wrong with these pieces, as you will look good, feel good, and play even better!

Much Mohair

As staying consistent with the theme, we will make sure to keep on with the trends, but substitute where we need to.  Mohair and cashmere are both luxurious fabrics but come from different sources and possess distinct characteristics. Mohair is produced from the hair of the Angora goat, known for its high luster and sheen, and it's incredibly durable and resilient. On the other hand, cashmere, sourced from the soft undercoat of the Cashmere goat, boasts exceptional softness and insulation properties, making it a coveted material for high-end, supremely warm clothing.  These 2 pieces are cashmere, but have a very similar look and appeal as Mohair.  


Woolovers cashmere polo is simple and sophisticated we chose Navy Blue for the “Atoll Blue” look.  This vintage-style knitted polo is a standout piece on the course and a great addition to women's winter golf clothing. The blend of soft cashmere and high-quality merino wool ensures not just a luxurious feel but provides substantial warmth for those brisk mornings on the greens.  The faux pearl buttons add a unique touch to an otherwise common piece, enhancing the traditional polo into something exceptional and eye-catching. Beyond aesthetic appeal.


Quince's polo in grey is a 100% Mongolian cashmere sweater. Its Grade-A cashmere composition, characterized by an ultra-soft 15.1 micron thickness, ensures a warmth and comfort that is exactly what you need on a cold winter day.  The relaxed fit and drop shoulder design accommodate the fluid, dynamic movements inherent to your golf swing, ensuring ease of motion when it matters most. Additionally, the open-collar neckline introduces a casual-luxe aesthetic, fitting seamlessly with both modern golf attire trends and the social hangout at the clubhouse after. In a sport where attire can reflect one's respect for the game, this cashmere polo sweater stands out as a piece acknowledging tradition, luxury, and the practical aspects of play.

Be the Scarf

Eddie Bauer's lavender cashmere scarf is an inexpensive addition to the female winter golfer's wardrobe.  Infusing a delicate splash of color with unparalleled warmth.  The scarf's lavender hue introduces a subtle vibrancy, complementing the natural landscape of the golf course while adhering to the elegance required in golf attire.  Eddie Bauer once again successfully marries practicality with classic style, making this scarf a coveted piece for the fashion-conscious golfer.

The C by Bloomingdale's teal exclusive cashmere scarf emerges as a perfect accessory for women's winter golf attire, bringing an unmatched luxury to the course. Crafted from fibers hand-brushed from Inner Mongolian goats.  Its meticulous construction and stylish design not only offer protection from the chilly weather but also add a sophisticated touch to any golfer's ensemble, proving that elegance and functionality can indeed go hand-in-hand on the golf course. 

Long Skirts for All Day Long Wear

The long skirt trend can be a fun one to stand out on the golf course.  Very rarely do you see women with long skirts, and this can surely set your look apart.  Most notable, this is for women's winter golf clothing, but this may lean towards a warmer winter day.
