Channeling: Fairway Fashion

Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant in Bringing Up Baby


Spring is in full swing, and we’re warming up at the practice tee, which means it’s time to embrace the classic collegiate style that the game of golf represents. If the idea of golf fashion conjures up images of argyle sweater vests and dowdy Bermuda shorts, look to some of the chicest celebrities, past and present, who have mastered the art of putting-green prep. With more and more Hollywood stars stepping up their golf games—like Catherine Zeta-Jones’ notorious 24 handicap, Pharell Williams’ custom-made Hermès golf bag, and even Jessica Alba’s recent driving range visits—you can expect even more great golfing outfits to come.

To get you ready to hit the green, we’re highlighting our favorite fairway fashion moments that fit perfectly with the newest J. McLaughlin Golf Collection—from sport-skirts, to sleek zip-ups, to, perhaps the most perennial of preppy style symbols, popped collars.
