Golf is one of the most popular and widely followed sporting events in the world today. There are hundreds of small and big golf tournaments happening across the length and breadth of the country. Even as we might be reading this article, it is quite possible that we could come across dozens of tournaments that could be running across the face of the earth. Women and men are equally enthusiastic about participating and supporting this sport. However, as is the case with other sports, there are strict dress codes as far as golf is concerned. It is applicable to both me and women. In this article, we will be looking at golf dresses for women and how trends have changed over the years. When we look at golf during the early 1950s for women, we remember the long dresses that covered almost every inch of the body. They not only looked ugly but also were heavy and restricted the movement of the lady golfers. However, with changes in technology and evolution, there have been changes and today wearing a black golf skirt or a sleeveless top is no longer considered blasphemy as it was perhaps even around 2 or 3 decades earlier. We will try and have a look at the various changes that have taken place in the dress habits for women golfers.
There is no doubt that there have been quite a few changes as far as the tops of women’s golfers are concerned. It would be pertinent to mention here that today women are comfortable wearing sleeveless tops that display their arms and also their armpits while they take shots. This would not have possible eve around twenty years back. Further today women are allowed to wear polo shirts that were previously only the domain of the men golfers. Further, women are comfortable wearing these tops in different colors and with designs all over the body. However, t-shirts, sweatshirts and other such dresses still continue to be out of bounds in the golf course as far as women are concerned.
If one looks at the first few snaps of golf tournaments of women around d 50 to 60 years ago, then the dresses would have been unbelievable. The entire area starting from the waist down to the ankles were almost fully covered. The women were allowed very little choice as far as the colors of the bottoms were concerned. Black was the only color that was considered to be legal and permissible. However, all this has changed over the past few years. Today, we have bottoms that have changed with times. We have short skirts and something known as golf skorts which are attractive and perhaps even enticing. The shorts, however, should be covering the knee and there are a few more restrictions that one needs to bear in mind. Different colors are permissible as far as the bottoms are concerned.
There are also other changes with regard to headgear, shoes and other such things. They are becoming more comfortable and are changing with times. Further, the focus of women’s golf dresses is the comfort, ease of wearing and of course style and being in tune with changing times and fashion requirements.
