Today’s golfers, such as Ian Poulter or Rickie Fowler may think they are the pinnacle of fashion, but on reflection, the swinging sixties was the birth of outrageous colours. Trendsetters on the links would be seen sporting a crew-neck tee’s with lurid v-neck sweaters.
The colour phenomenon continued into the 1970s as golfers combined a mixture of bold colours and absurd patterns. Golfers embraced brightly clashing sweaters and plaid trousers of purple, green, brown and orange.
As in the office, men wore turtlenecks and mock turtlenecks on the course. The hound’s-tooth pattern became a staple of 70’s golf wear, on both pants and shirts. The 1970’s was inundated with this weird but wonderful fashion, that lingered into the 1980s.
Adding a pop of colour here and there makes you stand out from drably dressed crowd and can give you an edge when trying to make an impression. One bold piece of colour can be incredibly eye-catching. However, it’s important to stick with one bold colour per outfit, in order to prevent the coloured pieces competing with one another.
