New golf fashions for women are both practical and feminine; dresses and culottes seesaw between above-and-below knee, meet all regulations

America's 1,250,000 women golfers are as much a part of the contest for sartorial honors on the fairways as the peacock-plumaged males who set the pace in tournament circles. In the past year the ladies have taken to Bermuda shorts in flocks, and this year have inspired a bigger-than-ever crop of golf fashions. Action-tailored for complete freedom of motion, these new dresses and culottes come in ultra-feminine pink, are matched to a T with Sandler's pink shag golf shoes. ($10.95.)
