Last week I met with my favorite golf designer, Vivian Sayward, CEO and Founder of Vivacity Sportswear. Vivian and I met a few years ago at an event where I was the keynote speaker and spent some time together immediately following the event. At the time, her golf and resort wear line was a dream—and in just a few short years, she has managed to build one of the most brilliant golf lines for women.
The very next day following our meeting, I received an email from her Public Relations Team telling me that my favorite garment and coveted leggings had been named after me. The Melissa Legging! What an honor to be part of this journey! I sported these leggings in the Vivacity video shoot earlier this year and now they come in two colors – Black and Tango Tangerine (The Tango Tangerine ensemble pictured to the left is worn by Margarita and the Bold Black & White ensemble to the right worn is by Linea—both are stunning!)
While some of you may be gasping at the thought of wearing or even seeing a woman wearing leggings on the golf course; take a deep breath—golf fashion continues to evolve and there is indeed a perfect way to wear the Melissa Legging! The trick is to pair it with a top that is not skin-tight, but rather one that fits and flatters as seen in the video and photos. If for whatever reason you are not convinced you can or should wear the Melissa Legging on the course; these diverse leggings can also be worn for yoga, hiking or even spiced up for a night on the town! Still not convinced—no worries, Vivacity makes gorgeous skorts, skirts and capri pants.
For me, comfort and sizzle are essential! When playing golf, I want to feel sexy, fun and rock my look. I don’t want to feel like a man in a boxy and predictable polo shirt, nor do I want to feel like I have to suck it in for hours—you know what I am talking about ladies! Vivian has found a way to honor and embrace real women’s bodies with her garments.
Vivian and her design team continue to make pieces that celebrate a modern woman’s lifestyle and her collections combine the best performance wear fabrics with flattering silhouettes. Being from Texas, I especially love the luxe details of the Swarovski Elements Crystal Collection. Ba-da bling baby!
The Melissa Legging and all of the other fabulous Vivacity Sportswear items can be found at www.vivacitysportswear.com and are also available at select golf resort shops and boutiques throughout the country.
Tell us what you think – would you wear the uber classy and sassy Melissa Legging on the golf course?
