Stop and smell the roses

This look is refined and sophisticated at first glance, but packed with personality upon closer inspection. The light blue Bonobos golf shirt is covered with roses, inspired by the company's newest ambassador, Justin Rose. Paired with a bright red pair of Criquet shorts, the pattern on the shirt really pops. Adding even more fun details are embossed skull-covered golf shoes from G/FORE and a vintage rope cap from Imperial. This is a look that'll transition easily from the course to post-round barbecues or graduation parties. Shop the look now:

Head-to-toe stars and stripes

This Oakley Striped Polo made in collaboration with Malbon Golf is retro, classic and July 4 ready.

The Imperial star-covered cap gives an extra-patriotic touch and the Asher Cypress Glove, inspired by Pebble Beach, brings major-championship vibes to any round.

Red, white and jogger blues

A casual-cool golf look like this is simple to replicate and super comfortable. These Lululemon ABC Joggers look like golf pants, but feel like sweats. The tight ankle closure is great with a street-style golf shoe, and an untucked polo enhances the stylish-yet-relaxed ensemble. Throw a fun bomber jacket over the outfit for when the temperatures drop during cool twilight rounds and you're ready to hit the town after a few holes.

Patriotic pieces to keep beyond the fourth
