'Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us.' -Virginia Woolf
Fashion does seem vain and trifling at times. But there is no denying that how we feel and subsequently how we perform can be affected by what we’re wearing. As a young wanna be Advertising Exec, I would wear my “power suit” to the most important meetings. It was the outfit that fit me best, and that I knew to be “on-trend”, in case anyone noticed.
In golf and in life, it’s great to have those outfits that fit like a glove and that are in fashion. In case you’re not sure what’s in fashion, we've put together key Winter Print Trends.
Lizzie Driver has incorporated these trends into our Fall/Winter ’16 Line, Mosaic. Check these out . . .
Print Trend: Houndstooth Patterning
Houndstooth originated in the Scottish lowlands as woven wool cloth, using a twill patterning. This season, Miu Miu, Sonia Rykiel and Carolina Herrera feature Houndstooth patterns which “look utterly feminine and sophisticated.”

Print Trend: Exotic Reptile Skin Motifs
Snakeskin prints are beautiful to behold as they have been used to make clothing for a very long time indeed. Today, it is very much a part of the latest in fashion fads, used to accent coats or create skirts.

Print Trend: Polka Dots
Saint Laurent, Emanuel Ungaro and Bottega Veneta show polka dots in classy and neo-modern combinations. Polka dots are young and fun, and can be tongue in cheek as well.
