Ah, it’s that time of year again when a would-be golfer girl’s fancy turns to the greens. Is there a more evocative golf event than the history-laden Masters Tournament at Augusta National, a veritable cathedral to the sport. We consulted our Master’s guru, Jane Hottensen for the latest observations, “Azaleas are blooming, the course looks great and TIGER IS BACK!” For those that can’t make the pilgrimage south to golf mecca, you can catch all of the drama and excitement, including Schedules, Latest Results, Profiles, History and Live Coverage at Masters.com.
For spectating you need to be comfortable, it could be a long day outdoors. J. McLaughlin’ Shirtdress is a perfect choice. It is great looking and easy to wear. Add a stylish sun hat, comfortable footwear – these Stubbs and Wootten Espadrilles are like wearing slippers, and a bag sized to carry, program, water, sunscreen, binoculars, cardigan and other fan worthy essentials. To accessorize, we stopped by Folly, Janes groovy boutique in nearby Aiken, South Carolina and chose casual accessories, like the Tortoise Necklace and Cuff. Now you have a look that is both casual and chic – from the grandstands to the club house in spectating style.
Spectating in Southern Style
And yes, I continue to flail about in this support hoping to find my groove this season. But at least I am well dressed for it in layers with a bit of stretch for a great fit while swinging. For tops, I like to layer breathable knits like J. McLaughlin’s Catalina Fabric, to look fresh after hours on the fairway. I tend to go either sleeveless or 3/4 sleeve to minimize the tan lines from a short sleeved shirt. On the bottom, I like long shorts or skirt when it is warm, fitted cropped slacks for chillier playing. Depending on the weather, add a half zip light wool sweater, or synthetic. Top it off with a thin down or quilted vest. If I need more clothing – it is probably too cold to play!
