Bare with me folks this is going to be a long one but well worth it!!
A few weeks ago we posted an interview with a designer/founder of an up and coming female apparel company and the response was outstanding. The founder is Susan Hess, the company is Golftini, and the clothing, well the clothing is just magnificent. Like many women Susan Hess did not like her options in golfwear, specifically skorts. All she wanted was a cute black skort, when she couldn’t find one she made one and the rest as they say is history. We first contacted Susan after a reader of ours said she swears by Golftini’s clothing, she said there are no skorts out there like it. Susan, and her business partner Samantha, were a pleasure to work with and sent us five incredible outfits from their spring line to review.
Outfit number one was a white pleat skirt with rainbow ribbon and a hot pink polo. My first thought when I saw the outfit was, simple and adorable. When I tried it on I thought, hot and sassy! They turned a simple white skort into something special by adding pleats and a ribbon. The fit was great and the length is modest but still shows a little leg. The hot pink polo has a zip front and low collar, a huge plus to me because I hate when collars are too high on my neck. The slits at the bottom have a great little design to add that extra feminine touch and the best part of the shirt, the Golftini martini glass logo on the bottom corner, it’s so fun!
The second outfit was a pink and black flower striped skort with a white t-shirt and hot pink vest. At first glance I wasn’t so sure about the skort, the pattern seemed a little busy for me, but wow was I wrong. When I put it on I fell in love, the pattern was not busy at all. The bottoms were quite flattering and very figure friendly, vertical stripes are a girls best friend. The white t-shirt was just that, a simple white shirt in a high quality fabric. My favorite piece in this outfit was the hot pink vest with the signature martini glass on the bottom left corner. I loved the color, I loved the fit, but I really loved the fabric and the fact that it had no tags. The vest was so soft it felt like cashmere, and I loved not having an itchy tag.
The third outfit was a Japanese flower skort and a black sleeveless polo. It was love at first sight for me, and it was the first one I wore to the course, I couldn’t wait. The skort is black with a Japanese flower print that is so cute, so colorful, and SO comfortable. The vibrant colors from the flowers really makes these bottoms pop. The black sleeveless polo has the zip up front and low collar like the hot pink polo. I added a black visor along with pink and white golf shoes and I was set. I had so many compliments that day on the course, everyone wanted to know where I got my outfit.
The last few items we received can be mixed and matched to create four incredible looks. One option is a three-quarter sleeve white sweater paired with a turquoise pleat skirt with white pin stripes and a white ribbon belt. Of all the skorts that I had the pleasure of trying this one was by far my favorite. The turquoise color is complimented so well by the white pin stripe, if they were pants I would totally wear them to work. Another option was a Khaki Crochet skort and a white short sleeve polo with the same zip up collar. No matter how you pair it, white polo and khaki skort, white polo and turquoise skort, turquoise skort and white sweater, or khaki skort and white sweater you can count on one thing, you will be the best dressed person at the club.
I tried and tried to find something I didn’t like about the Golftini Spring line but I couldn’t. The colors are great, the fit is great, the style is great…what can I say the clothes are just great. I forgot to mention earlier why I love the fit so much. Have you ever noticed that the shorts part of a skort are often spandex and rather tight? Not Golftini, the shorts are lose and allow you to breath, so when you take the skort off there are no red lines all over your thighs. It may sound silly but that really won me over.
When I first starting researching Golftini I thought the clothes looked cute, the skorts were cool, the ribbon was nice and I was excited to give them a try, but I had no idea what quality I was about to be introduced to. Susan Hess knows what women want, she knows how to take an ordinary item like a skort and turns it into something truly special. Golftini is the essence of style and class, I have yet to find an item in their spring or even fall line that I have not liked. Golftini is now a staple in my wardrobe and not to sound too much like a salesperson, but the minute you try out their clothes, I believe it will be a must have in your closet too.
