Even Arnold Palmer knew that looking good on the course was important.

“I think there’s a relationship between the player and his dress,” Palmer once said. “Does that mean that they all are gonna play good if they dress properly? Well, it doesn’t mean that.”

You may never finish a round like Arnold Palmer, but it sure doesn’t hurt to both look and feel good when you’re heading onto the course. I always try to feel my best so that I have the best possible mindset since we all know golf is a huge mind game. I struggle to find golf apparel that is youthful-looking, functional and is made for a petite frame. Nivo Sport hits all of the checkboxes on my list.

Nivo Sport offers the perfect balance of fashion, fit and performance. The company combines the latest style trends with leading sportswear designs seamlessly. As I’m sure many of you can attest to, it is very frustrating when your body doesn’t conform to what golf companies perceive as the norm and they do not offer all sizes. With sizes ranging from XS through XXL, thankfully Nivo has something for just about everyone.

A few pieces that are specifically noteworthy are the black capris, hooded cardigan, long-sleeved mock and the long-sleeved mock with offset buttons.

The black capris (pictured) are to die for. These capris are made with polyester spandex and are the most comfortable bottoms I have ever put on. They have this “modern-day golf knickers” feel to them which sold me on them before I even tried them on. Anything that has a reinvented classic feel to it, I’m sold on and Nivo did a fabulous job on these capris.

The hooded cardigan is probably best seen in person (also pictured.) I chose the green and it is more of a neon green in person. Lucky for me, I’m huge into neon colors right now and I really love the jackets with the thumb-hole spots and this cardi has that too.

Personally, and in all honesty, I’ve never been one to wear a mock. However, the long-sleeved mock with the plaid on the left arm is an interesting add-on. There is also a reflection strip on the front of the shirt that adds another nice detail and gives it a sporty feel.

Finally, the long-sleeved mock with the offset buttons is really a sleek looking shirt. It’s clean, simple, but just edgy enough that you feel stylish in it. This shirt, along with a good majority of Nivo’s apparel has UV sun protection, is quick dry and wicks away moisture; great features offered to keep you safe and dry on the golf course.

Nivo doesn’t seem to be overdone. Every piece I put on was just as easy and well-designed as the last. I’m really impressed with this company’s designs and functionality. You will feel at ease making a full swing in the clothes as well as bending to read a putt. I’m looking forward to seeing what is next for it.

Tops range in price from $50 to $90, bottoms $60 to $100, and outerwear $100 to $150. You can find Nivo products in select golf shops, resorts and specialty retail stores in US, Canada, Australia, UK and Spain.
