Fashion Forward: Golfwear
As we all know, golf is as popular as ever here in South Florida. But if you really want to impress the competition, focus on your clothes... not your clubs. In tonight's Fashion Forward, Shireen Sandoval shows us how to look good on and off the course.
WSVN -- Tiger Woodsís swing is the envy of every golfer.
But if your game isn't up to par... you can still turn heads with your golf attire.
Nathan Stith, Doral Golf Resort: "The golf shop kinda looks like a rainbow now."
At Doral Golf Resort & Spa, ladies apparel is very in and so is plenty of color.
This summer, pinks, bright blues, and greens are popping up all over the fairways.
Nathan Stith, Doral Golf Resort & Spa: "You don't want to be boring and dull, so that's right you gotta make a scene. You're not gonna play good, you gotta look good."
Now with female golfers like Anika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie, companies like Miami-based "Tail" are appealing to the fashion forward female golfer.
Nathan Stith: "They're catering to women golfers now which is really good. It's what the game needs."
The company is also using cooler fabrics, that won't let them see you sweat.
Tee off in a pretty polo with bermuda shorts.
Or show your wild side with an animal print top.
Tail's summer collection can you take from the fairways to the clubhouse without a quick change.
Nathan Stith: "A lot of it is things you can buy and use on the golf course and wear off the golf course so its fashionable wear.
Your swing may not put you on tour, but the clothes here at Golfsmith will put you on the fashion runway.
And you'll have plenty to choose from at this new specialty store in Hollywood.
Linda Kotziers, Golfsmith: "You can actually look fabulous while you're golfing, which I love. Tell me about some of the designs that are popular right now? Well we have a lot of different influences, actually from tennis coming in, of the shorter skirts, which are being allowed on the courses, a tighter, more athletic fit to the shirts."
Embellishments on both skirts and shirts are big this season.
You can even top off your look with a matching hat.
Linda Kotziers: "There are a lot more colors, prints are big. Itís justóitís a fun time for ladies golf right now."
From floral prints... to pretty skirts... it's a look that'll score you a hole-in-one.
Shireen Sandoval: "So is it possible for me to go golfing and then go run my errands, and look good?"
Linda Kotziers: "Oh, absolutely, you can go from the course to the clubhouse and beyond and look great."
Shireen Sandoval: "Now, can I go to South beach, dancing?"
Don't forget to complete the look with shoes and matching accessories, like gloves and bags.
