Why the Golf Vest is a Must-Have for Golf in 2023

Why the Golf Vest is a Must-Have for Golf in 2023

Posted on Monday, March 20, 2023 By Natalie Crouch

The infamous vest is the perfect item of clothing for those in-between seasons. We find ourselves reaching for a gilet when we can’t decide between a warm jacket or a golf shirt during the changeable spring and summer weather. 

Often referred to as a body warmer or golf vest, there are plenty of stylish golf vests to add to your wardrobe for 2023. If you already know what you’re looking for, we stock a range of women’s golf vests to suit all sizes and styles, browse the range today!

Not sold on the benefits of a vest just yet? Stay tuned as the Love Golf team run through the perks of owning a vest instead of opting for a long-sleeve option for the course this season. 

Increase the range of your golf swing

Whether you’re teeing off for the first round or making the final putt, that extra centimeter of roominess can make all the difference to your swing.  

Taking away the bulkiness of a down jacket from your shoulders and arms means that you’re able to move your arms more freely and without obstruction. This is handy for gameplay, as well as moving from the course to home and everywhere in between! 

If you’re after a sleek and stylish golf vest that will ensure you have the freedom of movement you need, the Green Lamb Maria Quilted Vest With Stretch Back is a perfect choice. The navy fabric on the back is designed for an extra bit of give as you move, and the quilted design on the front ensures you are protected from the elements. 

Get the warmth of a coat in the form of a light layer

The gilet provides the cosy warmth of a down jacket in a packable and lightweight form. Insulating synthetic fibres or soft down filling is excellent at trapping your body heat to keep your whole body warm, even though it is a sleeveless garment - living up to the name ‘body warmer’! 

For spring and summer 2023, you need a vest that will protect you from unexpected showers, be insulated enough to keep you warm and comfortable and be available in a stylish colourway. The Daily Sports Brassie Vest 400 in foam green ticks all those boxes! The two-way zip gives you a fashionable edge, and the down padding keeps you warm for those chilly mornings. 

A vest is the ultimate crossover between fashionable and functional 

With a multitude of colours and styles to choose from, the vest offers something special when it comes to layering. 

During cold, brisker days, the vest can be paired with a cosy knitted sweater or cardigan for warmth and comfort. For those brighter days heading into the more balmy weather conditions, the vest can be layered over a bright long-sleeved polo shirt for that pop of colour on the course!

One of our favourite pairings this season is the gorgeous Adonella Polo from Chervo layered underneath the Est Vest Green - a sleek and stylish combination that will be a wardrobe staple for seasons to come.

Layer up on the green with a new vest

Spring is the perfect time to add an extra layer for enhanced comfort and style. Want to add a golf vest to your golf wardrobe? Look no further than our collection of vests here at Love Golf Clothes.
