Need some guidance when it comes to layering up this fall/winter season? Look no further! Here are four easy looks for a chilly day on the course.
Look 1: Pattern Power
The Outfit: This Greyson Chene hoodie ($185) is absolutely a statement piece — its beautiful pattern is both neutral and eye-catching, and it offers a great way to stay warm and feel bright on an otherwise gloomy, chilly day. Since the hoodie offers such a bold print, we surrounded it with solid-colored pieces — a pink Bonobos polo ($68), Puma’s olive-green Tarmac joggers ($85), True Linkswear’s white TL-01 shoes ($149) and Imperial’s white U.S. Open Winged Foot cap ($29).
The Takeaway: Details matter, and you’ll see plenty of fun patterns and colors this fall and winter. The key to pulling off bold prints is balancing them with simple, classic pieces. Earthy, neutral tones and timeless staples pair seamlessly with a wide variety of looks, making them worth your investment.

Look 2: Camo Polish
The Outfit: Peter Millar’s reversible camo crew ($268) is a statement piece you can wear many ways. In this instance, we added some athletic flavor to it by pairing it with Lululemon’s sage-grey Commission pants ($128) and G/Fore’s orange glove ($35). We grounded it with a classic pair of FootJoy’s all-white ICONs ($300).
The Takeaway: Here’s another instance of a polished, classy outfit that isn’t dominated by the color black. Try identifying one statement piece you love, then build an outfit around it by choosing pieces that are solid-colored and play off the hues in your statement piece.

Look 3: Monochromatic Warmth
The Outfit: We started building Delanie’s outfit with Stitch’s Silver Arrows pullover ($169). We layered it under a Johnnie-O Crest vest ($145) and paired that combo with Stitch’s Sterling beige 5-pocket pants ($148). We rounded out the look with a white Eastside Golf vintage rope hat ($50) and Johnnie-O’s Keenan polo ($89), which offers a subtle (and necessary!) pop of light-blue color.
The Takeaway: A black-on-black ensemble can look sharp every now and then, but it doesn’t have to be your only option when temperatures drop. Delanie’s outfit proves you can pull off a layered, bright monochromatic look that’ll keep you warm on the chilliest of days.

Look 4: Athleisure heat
The Outfit: If you feel most comfortable and athletic in leggings off the course, feel free to bring them to the links too (within reason — more about that below). Lululemon’s Align II legging ($98) is buttery soft and offers full coverage, and I pumped up its athletic flair by pairing it with Puma’s RS-G shoes ($130). A second statement piece in this outfit, along with the RS-G shoes, is Foray Golf’s olive-green track jacket ($180), which is both simple and beautifully intricate at once. To round out the outfit, I paired a canary yellow Asher Golf glove ($24) with a yellow-pommed Jones PNW beanie ($40).
The Takeaway: I know leggings can be a hot-button topic, and most women don’t know if or when they’re allowed on the course. If the course you’re playing is public, you should be fine. If it’s private and you’re a guest, ask your host if leggings are allowed. If it’s private and you’re a member, well, you should know the rules! The bottom line — if you feel athletic and powerful in leggings and if you pair your leggings with conservative golf staples, you’re more than likely good to go in terms of being able to rock ‘em while teeing it up.
