Girls, It’s Time To Rock The Golf Skorts (No Matter Your Size)

Golf Skorts That Will Fit Your Body Type

As the weather gets warmer and the golf season draws near, I’m hoping to find a stylish outfit that I can rock on the golf course. Many women golfers will probably want to stick with the knee-length shorts and collared t-shirts, but, I want to challenge you to find an outfit that makes you feel good while you kick butt on the course. Wearing skorts/skirts is not only fashionable, but allows your legs to breathe!

There’s no better way to show off your feminine side than to sport a golf skirt or skort when you play, but you need to make sure you get the right fit and wear the best pieces for your body type. Here are some pointers that can help in selecting the appropriate style for you:

Athletic. If you have an athletic build with narrow hips and slim legs, you’ll look better in styles that have a little drape (extra fabric), pockets at the sides and back pockets with flaps. All these details will give your figure some curves. Ruffles are your best friend. You’ll also want to keep your length slightly above the knee, to show off your slim legs. You can pull off any bold print.

Straight/Thin. If you’re like me, you are thin with a narrow waist and a small bust. You have trouble fitting into clothes that are stretchy. Sometimes, your skorts don’t quite fit the way you want them to. The best advice I have is to find golf skirts with the hem that stops at the shapeliest part of you calf. That will be your best bet. Play with belts, coats, pleats, tights, etc. to maximize the appearance you want to achieve. Also, rocking some bright colors like pink, orange or blue will accentuate your body a little bit more.

Hourglass. The key to dressing an hourglass body type is to balance your lower body with your bust, while accentuating your waist.  To accommodate this, pick skort styles that fit close to the waist and then drape out over the hips and bottom. And since you have a bigger bust, a nice polo v-neck will suit you well.

Oval. You tend to have an undefined waist, a full torso, broad shoulders and slim legs. Pick skirts with a minimal waist band or a style with no waist band at all. De-emphasize your midsection and create a more defined waist. Choose clothing that will add curves and fullness to your lower body and tops that taper to a waist. You have amazing legs so feel free to play with skirt lengths, but don’t go too short otherwise you will further a top-heavy look.

Whatever your body type, you can find a golf skort that will fit you just the way you are. So, go out on the golf course and rock a skort. Be confident, be fashionable. There are tons of brands, sizes and styles to choose from. Just make sure to do some research and find what will best suit you.

Why I Chose Journalism

It was August, 2013. After 5 years long years, I finally graduated from my private catholic high school. Out of the 10 colleges I applied to that same year, I was accepted to all of them. Partly due to my parents, I decided to stay in Rhode Island and get my Bachelor’s degree at Roger Williams University.

When the time came around to decide on the major I was going to pursue, I was faced with uncertainty and confusion. I had no idea what I was good at. I had no serious interest in anything besides history, which, admittedly, I wanted to pursue in the beginning. I decided to try out political science, figuring it could lead me somewhere.

Within a month of my freshman year at college, I switched majors. It was not because of my lack of interest in political science. I actually loved the subject and wanted to continue my studies in that field. But, something I read happened to spark a fire inside me I could not ignore.

It was September 13th when I took a drive and decided to browse Barnes and Noble for a new book. I happened to be looking around in the history section when I stumbled upon a book called ” No Place to Hide” by Glenn Greenwald. This book was written about Edward Snowden’s remarkable discovery of the NSA’s top-secret and unconstitutional spying on hundreds of millions of American’s through the Internet and telephone without any consent given from the citizenry. Finding this book and deciding on a whim to purchase it not only opened my eyes to the world we live in today, but it impacted my career path in an unforeseeable way.

I knew as soon as I finished reading the book that I would become a journalist and do everything in my power to give the truth to the public, whether it be about the government or other affairs, I knew this would be my path.

My recognition of my love for journalism was an epiphany that could not be ignored. I realized how excellent I was at writing, how much I loved reading and how I always watched the news and criticized the government for their wrongdoings. I was in awe and shocked that I couldn’t have realized my passion sooner. It was right in front of me all along, but I just couldn’t see it.

Two years later, I have accomplished more then I ever thought I could. I have had two amazing internships working with a radio station and a news magazine in Rhode Island. I have increased my knowledge and my passion for journalism through the courses I have taken. I am now applying for a 12-week summer internship in Washington, D.C. as a political journalist. I have never been more grateful to have found something that truly inspires me in a way that no other field could have done for me.

 

In the words of Terry Pratchett,

“Truthfully, without over-egging it, as I often do, the library and journalism, those things made me who I am.”
