Fashion Blog: Which Solheim team stands out?
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
It’s time again to assess the Solheim Cup girls in the most important way of all – the Fashion Faceoff.
Every other year we make a point of crowning the Solheim “Fashion” Cup Champions. I think it is going to be a particularly tough decision this time around. Why? Because both the Abacus and Antigua brands have done a terrific job with styling their players, and we just cannot get enough of all the fun outfits.

While the actual Solheim points race is close, we have to say wardrobes race is a dead-heat, as well. Between the opening ceremony outfits and the Round 1 uniforms, we are stumped on who is going to come out on top on the fashion front.
Although the European gals are sporting the somewhat conservative yet traditionally elegant Abacus line, it is going to be pretty hard to surpass the flashy and always exciting American team decked out in their Antigua gear. So it is going to be up to the girls to win us over with the way they wear each outfit.
Also, weather is going to be a vital factor to this competition and which brand shows up with the snazziest coveralls to tough out the cool Irish air. As we all know it is tough to look fashionable in the cold. Covering up is never as fun when it comes to fashion, but it looks as though the two brands have some exciting gear up their sleeves.
Other factors to consider will be accessories, personal flair and, of course, game. These are all components to the decision that will be announced Monday morning.
So please feel free to contribute your opinion over the weekend to help us decide who deserves to be crowned the Fashion Faceoff Champion for the 2011 Solheim Cup.
