News and views on the world of ladies' golf fashion
Continuing her new golf fashion column, Christina Smith, Director of Golf2Golf.co.uk, shares her insight into the golf fashion world this week…
Indulge your wild side this season as animal print prowls back into the style spotlight. Animal print has long been a favourite and every year reinvents itself in new fresh designs and colour ways. This year is no exception with leopard being the principal pattern in favour! Subtle accessories such as warm winter gloves and hats are the easiest route to instant chic. The key is to be careful not to overload your prints but balance them with neutral colours and conservative classics to create a stylish on trend look. Also mixing prints such as leopard and zebra never works.
Single images of animals are also massive for this autumn. Having one large image on a top such as an animal head or wearing smaller prints such as leopard is also very flattering.
As animal designs are so strong on the high street your animal print golf apparel and accessories are equally at home both on and off the golf course. So this autumn go wild exploring all the options available with this timeless and feminine classic!
There are plenty of colourful choices available so indulge your wild side and visit www.surprizeshop.co.uk for ideas!

Keep your best assets in check!
Let's face it when it comes to golf apparel most of us ladies love to shop the perfect gear to help us swing freely while looking great. But how many of us actually think about our under garments?
Wearing the right type of bra is just as important as wearing the right shoes. Not only will it allow you swing freely but it will give that all-important support that will protect you from injury.
Leading lingerie brand Royce has just launch a new 'Impact Free' sports bra designed for the lady with larger assets (bra size D-K). It features firm straps and a wire underband for extra support as you swing. It is seamfree to eliminate irritation and has a concealed back fastener to improve comfort. The bra has moulded inner cups to give maximum support. It's also made from a special cotton that encourages perspiration to be naturally wicked away from the skin.
The Royce Impact Free Sports bra is available in black, white and grey, sizes 28-40, D-K. For information, pricing and stockists visit: www.royce-lingerie.co.uk
