As one of the biggest golf tournaments in the world, The Waste Management Phoenix Open is not to be missed by the Valley’s fashion set.
Each year, thousands of spectators come to watch PGA players compete at “the greatest show on grass” under the vibrant Arizona sunshine at TPC Scottsdale. Comfort and layering is key, as you’ll be in the sun walking along the green all day, while the mood shifts into laidback cool at the Birds Nest at night.
With these fashion tips in tow, you’ll be hitting the green in style like a pro when the Waste Management Phoenix Open hits the Valley from Jan. 26 – Feb. 1.
P.S. Don’t forget your sunscreen
1. Avoid Sinking Soles
From L to R: Tory Burch boots; Steve Madden wedges; New Balance for J.Crew sneakers
If you wear stilettos on the green, your heels will inevitably sink into the ground and will be the ultimate ruin to your shoes. Stylish sneakers or flat riding boots are the perfect alternative, as you’ll be spending most of your time standing around and walking around. If you must have some height, choose a sturdy pair of wedges that will keep you grounded.
2. Go With the Flow
From L to R: Pixie Market two-piece dress; Maiyet halter dress; T by Alexander Wang silk trackpants; Pixie Market denim fringe dress
Choose fabrics that lend room to move and breathe when it comes to your clothes. Skater or fit-and-flare dresses are perfect, and also figure flattering, while dressed-up track pants echo the athletic vibe on the green.
3. Layered Dimension
From L to R: Nordstrom cashmere wrap; Urban Outfitters cardigan; Stella McCartney bomber jacket
Go with the breeze with easy layers, like this cozy cashmere wrap from Nordstorm, a classic cardigan from Urban Outfitters, or embrace the bomber trend with this statement number from Stella McCartney.
4. The Day-to-Night Bag
