Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals were told about the pregnancy on October 12, when they gathered in Windsor for Princess Eugenie’s wedding.
That speculation intensified when Meghan Markle was seen clutching two large folders in front of her stomach as she arrived in Sydney with Prince Harry for their first official royal tour, which will also take in Fiji and Tonga.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first engagement is on October 16, when crowds of well-wishers are expected to congratulate the couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry’s parents – Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales – whose first royal tour was to Australia and New Zealand.
The wearable tech industry is coming into its own. The first couple generations of clunky fitness bands and glitchy smartwatches have given way to a dizzying variety of sleek, stylish wearables suited to virtually every taste and budget.
All this variety is great news for active folks who prefer their lifestyle choices to complement their style, not work against it. If you’re looking for ways to make a statement with your wearable accessories, here’s what you need to do.
Build Your Athleisure Wardrobe Around Your Smartwatch
Ten years ago, “athleisure” was barely a thing. Today, it’s the apparel of choice for fashion-forward fitness enthusiasts.
The problem is, not all athleisure is created equal. If you already have a smartwatch in hand, look for form-fitting tops and leggings that complement its bulk and color scheme. Remember, your smartwatch is part of your wardrobe — even if it sometimes seems like an add-on.
Choose a Medical Alert Bracelet That Complements Your Favorite Jewelry
If you wear a medical alert bracelet, why not choose one that you’re actually proud to show off? The medical alert industry is more responsive than ever to users’ aesthetic preferences; leading manufacturers are investing in sleeker, lighter, more visually appealing options as you read this.
For instance, the GreatCall Lively Mobile Medical Alert is super fashionable, with tasteful silver or gold color options that perfectly complement your everyday jewelry choices: white gold pendant, pearl necklace, wedding ring. It’s lightweight, weighing in at just 1.41 ounces. And, according to this GreatCall review, service starts as low as $19.99 per month — a bargain next to pricier systems.
Hide Your Smartwatch Behind a Classic Veneer
Your smartwatch need not sport a space-age look. Some of the best smartwatches on the market, like the ASUS Zenwatch 3, sport timeless veneers with off-gold or chrome finishes — a welcome alternative to those buggy, boxy market leaders. A thorough inspection might reveal its pedigree, but at a quick glance, you’d never know it’s not a Rolex.
Rock a Bangle-Style Fitness Tracker
Swap out your bracelet for a bangle-style fitness tracker that fits snugly against your wrist. Some of the top activity band brands on the market offer bangle-style options in addition to classic rubber-style bands. If your budget allows, why not opt for both — bangle for buttoned-up settings, rubber for solo workouts?
Wrap Your Fitness Tracker Around Your Little Finger (Literally)
Not all fitness trackers resemble bracelets. As wearable tech has improved, key components are smaller than ever. Some wearable market leaders, like Ringly and Motiv, specialize in fitness trackers that can quite literally fit around your little finger (though they’re technically outfitted for ring and second finger sizes). If you’re curious about the wide world of miniature fitness trackers, read up on the best smart rings — and check back often, as the state of the mini-tracker art is constantly changing.
Does Your Wearable Tech Pass the Fashion Tech?
The wearable tech space is changing by the week. If none of these wearable fashion ideas tickle your fancy, don’t sweat it — tomorrow is another day.
Of course, fashionable wearables don’t exist in a vacuum. Your other fashion choices — your jewelry, clothing accessories, wardrobe, your hair and makeup — all work in concert. A few tweaks here and there can dramatically alter the final composition. Never forget that you’re in the driver’s seat here.
As part of the agreement, the murder charges against Suge Knight will be dismissed by prosecutors, along with separate criminal cases charging him with robbery and making criminal threats.
The deal, in which Suge Knight admitted using a “deadly and dangerous weapon” when he ran down two men with his vehicle, calls for him to serve 22 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter with a further 6 years added because of the US “three-strikes” law relating to repeated violations.
The charge relates to an incident in January 2015 in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles.
Suge Knight was accused of deliberately running over two men with his pick-up truck outside a hamburger restaurant following an argument on the set of a commercial for Straight Outta Compton.
One of the victims, Terry Carter, died of his injuries while the other, Cle “Bone” Sloan, suffered serious injuries to his feet and head.
Footage of the incident captured by security cameras show Suge Knight’s vehicle pulling up to the drive-in shop, with one of the victims approaching the driver’s side window. Following what appears to be a brief discussion, a struggle then ensues.
Suge Knight’s truck is seen going into reverse, throwing the man to the ground. It then moves forward, driving over his legs and slams into the other victim, who was killed.
The rap mogul turned himself in to authorities a day after the incident. His attorneys had said he was acting in self-defense and was fleeing armed attackers when he ran over Terry Carter and Cle Sloan.
Cle Sloan has denied claims he was carrying a gun during the confrontation.
Suge Knight co-founded Death Row Records with the pioneering producer Dr Dre in the 1990s, but later declared bankruptcy and the company was sold at auction for $24 million.
While his label was initially very successful, his fortunes began to slide in 1996 when rapper Tupac Shakur was shot and killed in the passenger seat of Suge Knight’s car.
Suge Knight has a history of legal problems. He spent time in jail in 1997 and 2003 for parole violations arising from assault charges. He later pleaded guilty to hitting his girlfriend in an incident in 2008.

Does buying an anniversary gift for your loved one get a little harder each year? To succeed, you want to find a gift that is heartfelt and encompasses how much you love her. Consider going down memory lane with your present, getting a stylish item, or planning the perfect vacation to show her how much you appreciate everything she does.
An anniversary is a great time to tap into your sentimental side. No matter what year you are celebrating, you can plan an anniversary gift for your wife or girlfriend that invites you both to reminisce on your time together as a couple. What better way to reflect on the years than by looking at photographs? This can often be done digitally in these social media days. This option can be easy and fast, but for an added touch of sentiment, try using a website that will help you put together a book. Find one that conveniently helps you narrow down your pictures and adds your own answers to heartfelt relationship questions for a lovely copy of your experiences together. This unique and personalized gift idea will bind memories in a stunning way that you both can look back on for years to come.
A beautiful piece of clothing is a terrific gift idea for anyone. Everyone needs a few especially nice items in the closet for those random special occasions. A fancy birthday dinner or other celebration will call for a nice outfit. Provide that outfit for your loved one in the style that they will love. Visit different stores to narrow down what kind of clothing you want to purchase. Use online shopping as an easy tool that provides even more options if you don’t have a lot of time to spare between work and other activities. Try specialty boutiques with online stores for the trendiest – from casual to elegant – looks. You can never go wrong with a clean color and style, such as a white maxi dress. A cute jumpsuit can also be dressed up to go from a daytime to a night-out look. Create an event for the perfect outfit by planning a dancing date night for her. She will love the chance to glam up and go out for an evening of fun.
Often, the inclination in planning an anniversary gift is to buy something material. Material items have the benefit of immediate use and satisfaction. You might feel like your loved one will appreciate it more in the moment. But experiences that turn into memories can be just as special. Maybe your loved one has a favorite band or artist she has always wanted to see. Invest in a floor tickets for a show. Or take her away on her dream vacation. Planning is sometimes the most stressful part of any trip, so eliminating this part for her is an added bonus. This gift is a big one that will require a lot of advanced thought for buying plane tickets, booking a hotel room, and organizing sightseeing and other vacation adventures. Plan special experiences or allow them to happen organically for memories that you will both cherish forever.
It’s the thought that counts. So show how much thought you are willing to spend on for your wife or girlfriend. She will see your attention to detail in your gift and appreciate it that much more.
Whether it is simply a happy look at memories or as involved as a dream vacation, something that you can both enjoy is never a bad idea.
Jimmy Bennett says in the documents that the encounter traumatized him and threatened his mental health and career, the New York Times reported.
He had played Asia Argento’s young son in a 2004 film.
In the documents seen by the paper, Asia Argento’s lawyer said that the money was given to Jimmy Bennett to help him, and that it was Argento who had been preyed upon.
In a statement published by Vanity Fair, a lawyer for Jimmy Bennett said his client would not comment but would take the “next 24 hours, or longer, to prepare his response”.
A lawyer for Harvey Weinstein said the development revealed “a stunning level of hypocrisy by Asia Argento”.
Another high-profile accuser of Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan, has also reacted to the reports, tweeting: “I got to know Asia Argento ten months ago. Our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. My heart is broken. I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere. None of us know the truth of the situation and I’m sure more will be revealed. Be gentle.”
Syrian First Lady Asma al-Assad has been diagnosed with breast cancer, officials confirmed on August 8.
President Bashar al-Assad’s wife was receiving treatment for an early-stage malignant tumor.
Born and raised in London, Asma al-Assad has been a highly controversial figure.
The Syrian first lady was one of twelve people placed under EU sanctions in 2012 over the government’s violent response to the Syrian uprising.
A photograph of Asma al-Assad and her husband was posted on Twitter together with the words: “Mrs. Asma al-Assad begins the first stage of treatment for a malignant breast tumor that was discovered early…. the Presidency and its team wish Mrs. Asma a speedy recovery.”
A dual British-Syrian national, Asma al-Assad attended school and university in London before becoming an investment banker.
She moved to Syria in 2000 and married former ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad, just months after he succeeded his father Hafez al-Assad as president.
Bashar and Asma al-Assad were initially presented as reformers and as a change from the repressive rule of the late president, with a glowing portrait of the first lady published by Vogue in February 2011 – and since deleted – describing her as “the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies”.
However, just a month later, police reacted brutally to protests in the southern city of Deraa, sparking a conflict which has claimed the lives of around half a million people and displaced millions more.
In her first public comments on the violence in February 2012, Asma al-Assad firmly stood beside her husband.
The same year, activists released thousands of private emails purportedly from the president and his wife apparently showing that Asma al-Assad continued to buy luxury goods even after the uprising had begun. She was also personally sanctioned by the EU.
Asma al-Assad did not speak to foreign media again until 2016, when she told Russian state-backed television that she had previously rejected offers of asylum abroad.
“[Brad Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support. As of present, [he] has paid no meaningful child support since separation,” Angelina Jolie’s lawyer said in the filing on August 7.
“Given that the informal arrangements around the payment of the children’s expenses have not been regularly sustained… for over a year and a half, [Angelina Jolie] intends to file… for the establishment of a retroactive child support order,” the documents stated.
The actress cited “irreconcilable differences” when she filed to end the marriage, and the pair became embroiled in a bitter child custody dispute in the months following the announcement.
Brad Pitt was investigated for possible child abuse after losing his temper in front of some of the children, but was later cleared of the allegations.

The pressures were exacerbated when Demi found stardom in Disney Channel hits Camp Rock and Sonny with a Chance, before launching a pop career.
The singer revealed she first tried cocaine at the age of 17 when she was working on the Disney Channel.
The first public admission that anything was wrong came in 2010 when Demi Lovato dropped out of the Camp Rock 2 tour with the Jonas Brothers and went into rehab for what were described at the time as “emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time”.
The breaking point had come when she and her backing dancers trashed their hotel one night after drinking and smoking weed.
Demi Lovato was also taking Adderall, an addictive prescription stimulant – and she punched a backing dancer who told her parents and manager she was using the drug.
After checking into treatment, the singer was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Famous friends of the star have been posting on social media, whilst thousands of fans have been using the “Pray for Demi” hashtag.
Among them, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian West and Ellen DeGeneres have voiced their support for Demi Lovato.
Prince Louis, the youngest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, has been christened on July 9 in a private ceremony in London.
The fifth in line to the throne arrived alongside his family at St James’s Palace wearing the same gown his siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, wore to their christenings.
The 11-week-old was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
Guests included newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
However, Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh did not attend, with the decision made “some time ago” and not on health grounds, Buckingham Palace said.
The 92 year-old queen was travelling back from Norfolk on July 9 and has a busy week ahead, with celebrations marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday and US President Donald Trump’s visit to Windsor on July 6.
Prince Louis’ six godparents are Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade, Hannah Carter and Lucy Middleton.
They are all friends or family of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who also picked friends and confidantes as Prince George’s and Princess Charlotte’s godparents.
According to Kensington Palace, Lucy Middleton and Guy Pelly each read a lesson during the service.
Prince Charles, Prince Louis’s grandfather, attended with the Duchess of Cornwall, with Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton also among the guests.
Pregnant Pippa Middleton and her brother James Middleton were also at the ceremony.
Prince Louis’s christening gown is the same one that was used by his siblings.
The cream lace and white satin robe is a replica of the robe made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter in 1841, which is now too delicate to be worn. The new version was made by the Queen’s dresser, Angela Kelly.
According to tradition, water from the River Jordan was used at the christening.
Following the 40-minute traditional religious service, guests attended a private tea which included slices of christening cake, from a tier taken from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding cake.
XXXTentacion, who first found an audience by uploading songs to the website SoundCloud, had been hailed as a breakthrough talent and tributes have been pouring in from hip-hop luminaries in the wake of his death.
He was leaving the dealership shortly before 16:00 local time when two men approached him, officials say.
At least one of them shot the rapper before both fled the scene in Deerfield Beach, 43 miles north of Miami, in a dark-colored SUV.
Investigators said it appeared to have been a “possible robbery”. Video posted on social media apparently showed XXXTentacion slumped in his car.
A witness at the scene told TMZ that multiple shots had been fired outside the dealership.
Onfroy, whose hit songs include SAD! and Moonlight, quickly rose to prominence following the release of his debut album “17” last August.
His follow-up “?” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart in March and has been listened to hundreds of millions of times online.
The album tackled subjects such as depression and was praised by some of rap’s highest-profile stars.
However, XXXTentacion’s short career was plagued by allegations of domestic violence. The rapper was facing 15 felony charges at the time of his death, including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.
A new year means new makeup trends. The following five directions are going to appear a lot this year both on the red carpet and on the streets. Fashion trends affect not only closing styles, colors, design, forms, textures, and other, but also the face image which fulfills the general idea. Though trends are changing each year and fashion often concerns not only pure unconditional beauty and health but also many other aspects including even politics.
Ways of figuring out the trends
There are several ways to determine your makeup set for the current season. The easiest way is to follow a blogger who will tell you everything from A to Z about which tones, brands, applicators to use and why. Cons of the method are time-consuming. You will need at least good hour to check everything out. Another option is to read a favorite magazine like Vogue or HarpersBazaar. There you can find the best overviews of fashion shows and trendsetting brands together with the celebrities’ looks. In other words, you will see the complete guideline in a magazine. The most complicated and time-consuming way is to research the latest fashion shows yourself and make your own opinion. It is hardly necessary for women who are not bloggers or celebrities.
No more contouring, only highlighters
During the last few years, the fashion setting makeup trend always included contouring. 2018 has become the official end of the exaggerated face contouring. Instead, Rihanna has started the trend of gold highlighter which is not actually lighter than a skin tone but is gold. It fits perfectly for those who have warm skin undertone. The pastel or silver tones fit perfectly for a cooler skin. The application is effortless. You only have to apply it as a regular highlighter or making a creative form on your cheek for a special occasion.
At the end of the day in 2017, there was only one official look to draw a line on the corner of your eye. Makeup brushes will be necessary for a gentle gradient. The line should have been very long, bold in the middle, and pointy towards the outside until it vanishes. 2018 offers more creative opportunities to make this line look trendy. The thick and filled wings, mini wings, unfilled wings, upside down lines and anything else that comes to your mind.
If you are a student and don’t have time and money for qualitative skin care products, the next trend will make you look gorgeous in a few minutes. You also can gain more time by shifting a few home works to the guys who will write my assignment in Australia service. The look is perfect for daily use. You can keep it quite discreet which also looks fresh at all ages. The idea is taking a technique of smokey eyes and perform it in a warm peachy or rose pastel palette. Gel texture will make it glow which is quite impressive.
It may be not perfect makeup for sensitive skin, especially the under eye area, but the inner corner of the eye must be highlighted. 2018 involves very subtle looks which involve not the whole area around the eye decoration but just the inner part of it. The rest area remains bare. It is not only cheap makeup but fast as well. You can do it right before going out with your fingertip. The matching tones remain pastel like white, cream white, silver, or pearl. It also looks very refreshing.
Cheap cosmetics often has its cons like not lasting, wrong texture, not shimmering, and other. On the other hand, there is no point in buying trendy sets for significant amounts of money. The trends are changing, and the unused products go to the trash. It applies to purple pallets. In fact, purple and violet is a significant trend of 2018 no only in makeup. You will see it everywhere. You have plenty of options to apply the tone both on the lips and on the eyes.
To sum up, keep it nude
Organic makeup was and will always be trendy all times. Apart from decorative cosmetics remember to take good care of your scene which includes everyday hydrating, sun protecting, cleaning, massaging and treating if needed. The best makeup is the one that doesn’t include hiding your screen under bases and powders. They won’t do your pores healthier. The healthy shine comes from inside and makes you gorgeous. Here are the step-by-step daily scan care and decoration.
Apply nursing SPF crème. Every day. This is the must.
Light BB crème if you have different colors on your face skin.
Under eye, concealer to cover the problem zones if needed.
Superlight cheekbones contouring.
Make the eyebrows visible by filling the spaces without changing the existing form.
Brow pencil/shades for highlighting the under eyebrow area and make you look awake.
According to a New York Times report, the charges relate to an allegation brought by actress Lucia Evans.
The actress detailed her accusations against Harvey Weinstein in an article in the New Yorker in October 2017.
It is not clear if the former producer will face more charges brought by other accusers.
It is known that New York police have been investigating allegations of rape made by actress Paz de la Huerta.
This month Netflix producer Alexandra Canosa files court papers in New York alleging Harvey Weinstein raped, assaulted and verbally abused her over a five-year period.
The statute of limitations will be an issue in some cases but it is not thought to apply in the Evans case. Even if the limitations apply, a judge could still call women to testify to establish a pattern of behavior, as in the recent trial of Bill Cosby.
Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, has not commented on reports that his client will imminently turn himself in.
The Times said Harvey Weinstein would surrender on May 25 and be arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court.
Harvey Weinstein has faced accusations of harassment and assault from dozens of women. Some have alleged rape.
Kate Beckinsale, Lysette Anthony and Gwyneth Paltrow are among the high-profile figures to have spoken out.
After days of controversy over who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle on May 19 when she marries Prince Harry, Kensington Palace has made the announcement. It’s Prince Charles, Prince Harry’s father.
Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, is unable to attend the wedding, after undergoing heart surgery.
Kensington Palace said the Prince of Wales was “pleased to be able to welcome Ms Markle to the Royal Family in this way”.
Prince Harry’s grandfather, 96-year-old Prince Philip, will also attend the wedding, Buckingham Palace confirmed.
Prince Philip has been recovering from a hip operation.
Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, will take her daughter to the wedding at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Doria Ragland will meet Queen Elizabeth for the first time at Windsor Castle later, accompanied by Meghan, 36, and Prince Harry, 33.
Meghan Markle’s mother has already been introduced to Prince Charles and Prince William and Kate Middleton. She met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, at Windsor Castle on May 17.
She took tea with Prince Charles and Camilla at Clarence House in London on May 16.
Thomas Markle had been due to arrive in the UK earlier this week, but became caught up in controversy over the apparent staging of photographs with the paparazzi.
Meghan Markle released a statement on May 17 saying she hoped her father could be given space to focus on his health.
The wedding ceremony begins at 12:00 BST and will be broadcast to the world.
Meghan Markle will have 10 bridesmaids and pageboys, who are all under the age of eight.
The bride decided against having a maid of honor, saying she wanted to avoid choosing between her closest friends.
Thomas Markle became embroiled in controversy at the weekend, following reports that he staged paparazzi photographs of himself in the run-up to the wedding.
The pictures showed Thomas Markle – apparently unaware he was being photographed – in a series of wedding-related activities, including being measured for a wedding suit.
Samantha Markle, who has not spoken to her famous sibling in three years – and will not be attending the wedding – told Good Morning Britain the photographs had been done with “good intention” and not for money.
She previously admitted the pictures had been her idea, in order to portray a positive image.
On May 14, Thomas Markle reportedly told TMZ that he would not attend the wedding.
TMZ later reported that Meghan Markle’s father had and wanted to attend – although he might not be able to because of health concerns.
In a third report, TMZ said that the health issues and planned surgery would prevent him from attending after all.
Thomas Markle had been due to meet Prince Harry for the first time this week, as well as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, before walking his daughter down the aisle at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Bill Cosby is best known for starring in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show.
Around 60 women over five decades have publicly accused Bill Cosby of being a predator. But statute of limitation laws mean that only one charge has been brought to trial.
Some of his accusers were present in court, and cried as the guilty verdict was returned.
Bill Cosby’s lawyer Tom Mesereau insisted “the fight is not over”, adding that he believes the actor is innocent and that he plans to file an appeal.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, who brought the charges against Bill Cosby, held a press conference after the verdict.
Kevin Steele said, as Andrea Constand stood beside him: “Money and power or who you are will not stop us from a criminal investigation and prosecuting a case.”
When the attack took place, Andrea Constand was working as director of operations for the women’s basketball team at Temple University, Philadelphia.
She told the court she had gone to the home of her then friend Bill Cosby, to discuss her resignation.
Andrea Constand said he had given her three blue pills to “help take the edge off,” which she believed to be a natural remedy.
Minutes later, she was suffering double vision and quickly lost consciousness.
She awoke to find Bill Cosby assaulting her, she said, adding that the drugs made her physically unable to fight back.
Andrea Constand reported the attack, but the district attorney refused to press charges. The case was reopened in 2015.
Judge Steven O’Neill allowed five of Bill Cosby’s other accusers to serve as “prior bad acts” witnesses during the trial, as the prosecution sought to establish a pattern of misconduct.
Heidi Thomas told the court that Bill Cosby served her spiked wine that made her drowsy for four days in 1984.
Former model Janice Dickinson was among those who testified, alleging that Bill Cosby drugged and raped her at a hotel in 1982, when she was 27 years old.
The case against Bill Cosby was one of the first celebrity assault trials conducted in the light of the #MeToo movement, which has raised awareness of alleged misconduct by a number of powerful media figures.

Nike golf retailer, Golfposer, have a wide range of spikeless designs. The other big benefit of going spikeless is that they save you a lot of packing space, because you can wear them on and off course, in the clubhouse or to go out for dinner for example.
Sunscreen alone won’t save you from the harmful sun rays, and being out on the green all day definitely calls for some protective headgear. Keep your eyes shaded and your face protected with a cap that has a simple design, or if you want to make a statement, the new NIKE Magnolia Edition style is finished in an all over floral print – with a release date scheduled for Masters Week, 2018.
A Moisture-wicking Polo
Be honest, the last thing you need is sweat weighing down your swing and stinking up your game! A moisture-wicking polo is as important as maintaining the proper form – keeping you feeling and looking cool. For longevity, avoid white as a base colour. Instead, opt for red and navys – but not black as it will absorb too much heat on the green.
Yes, it’s not lie that if any one item of golf clothing shows just how much golf fashion has changed, it’s the good old fashioned trousers.
Where one day, a classy pair of cream chinos where all you needed : comfortable, interchangeable and matched well with almost any colour – ideal! These days, the jazzier the better. Companies out there, like Loudmouth Golf and Royal and Awesome, are releasing increasingly outrageous slacks – and we can’t really get enough of them!
One of golf’s most eccentric characters, John Daly, has made surreal slacks his signature and people love it. In recent years check, plaid and pinstripe patterns in bright and playful colours have been all the rage for golfers.
Aside from being fashion conscious it is also important that you invest in lightweight and breathable golf trousers when playing abroad or in the sunshine.
Not all golf holidays are filled with sunshine and clear skies, so you need a plan for the overcast days. When it’s cloudy, it’s a good idea to throw on a thin, lightweight sweater over a collared shirt. Investing in a sweater like this is ideal because it can be worn when your home as well as on holiday. As with the polo, avoid black or white and opt for greys or navy instead.
Attention to detail with the Belt
You don’t have to wear a belt with a big logo if you’re not a professional golfer, but you can use your belt to enhance your golfing outfit . If you want to make a statement, switch up the strap and go for cool colors and patterns with a simple chino.
