I received the following question-
My husband won tickets to the US Senior Open, a national golf tournament. I’m not sure what to wear. I’ve considered a maxi dress with a denim vest and a floppy hat. Any ideas? The tickets are VIP so I want to look put together.
Thank you for your question!
I had to dig deep in my resources to answer this question as I have never been to the US Open, senior or otherwise. I called my go-to man on all things golf. My brother. The golf fanatic. While maybe not a fashion pro, he could tell me what he’s seen on the greens.
And here’s my conclusion- go with something preppy. I think your idea for the maxi dress is a good one. But maxi dress says bohemian to me. While it’ll be a great choice if the weather is sweltering, it might not look “high-end” enough for the VIPs.
So pretend you are in Pretty Woman at the polo match- only more laid back and sporty. I think a short dress would be an equally good choice. Think ivy league school.
And while a big hat may be a great idea for the sun, if you are a VIP, you may be under a tent and people could have trouble seeing around said big hat. So perhaps just stick with the sunglasses!
Also, there could be a lot of walking involved, so wear some comfortable flats. And if your dress has no pattern, be a little more daring with your shoes!
Have a great time!
