Good Looks (U.S. Women's Open)
By Janice Ferguson

Golf dresses do not seem to have gained as much popularity as capri pants or golf skorts. They simply are not seen very much on the women's professional tours or in local pro shops. But when a dress is well constructed and worn on the right physique, a golf dress can be very practical for on the course and still be great looking.
Case in point: LPGA player Paige Mackenzie, who at 5-feet-8-inches tall, stood out at Blackwolf Run during the opening round of the U.S. Women's Open, wearing a black, sleeveless MiC Sportswear golf dress.
MiC is a Seattle, Wash.-based sportswear and women's golf apparel company started by designer Melba Lee, who comes from an upscale couture background that is evident in the stylish tailoring of the clothing. Mackenzie is a University of Washington graduate with model good looks, so theirs could be a natural fit.
There are several golf dresses in MiC's 2012 summer collection, including the Safari dress shown here. Most of the line is done is basic black and white, giving it a timeless classic look, but with detailing that set pieces apart from the norm. A simple golf ball on a tee graphic is MiC's logo.
MiC's website is provocative, looking more like a top fashion house photo shoot than the norm in golf catalogs. But the look is intentional and defining of the label. The company's goal is to give women smart, sexy, fun and sustained fashions that complement their active golf lifestyles.
