Super shaping, contour panels and wonderful waistlines; look fantastic and feminine this season with these four tips from GolfGarb.

As the temperature drops, it's time to layer up for those crisp rounds on the course. But fear not, there's no need to replace style with bulky layers!

Well-fitted first layers

Find yourself a base layer, top or roll neck that's well fitted and you'll benefit twofold: Firstly, your core warmth will be held close to your body and not lost as you move, and secondly your next layer, be it a knit or mid-layer top will look nicely fitted and play well to your shape. Roll necks are really popular this year and you'll find them in a rainbow of shades and prints.

Alternatively, a good base layer is a must for all your winter activities. Look out for moisture-wicking properties as an added benefit for those times when you warm up but don't want to shed a layer.

Tops and mid-layers with contour panels

As you layer up you can create curves with clever contouring and shaped panels. Long-sleeved tops and mid-layers with contoured panels that sweep in at the waist are a great way to enhance your figure. This is normally applied with clever use of contrasting colour or print panels next to a plain colour section.

Whilst retaining the lovely colour scheme a change from print to plain via a curved seam enhances your shape.

Winter skirts and tailored trousers

Warm legs call for thermal fabrics and that will naturally add some level of thickness to your legwear. If you're opting for thermal trousers look for ones with a more tailored ankle rather than a straight fit, and a waistline that isn't too low-rise. Waterproof over-trousers in particular can make you feel less than stylish but this clever waterproof trouser offers a sporty, shaped solution.

For something different, the rise in popularity of thermal leggings opens up your options and can be combined with a padded skirt for another layer and a stylish finish. Thermal tights are also available which, although not as warm as thermal leggings, will work wonders on slightly milder days.

Combine an on-trend padded skirt with thermal leggings for feel-good femininity:

Outerwear with a waistline

We love some of the oversized styling and long padded coats available nowadays but when you want that chic look, or when you're playing, a more fitted approach ticks all the boxes. There are styles with drawcord waists this season, which we love! Perfectly adjustable to your shape, they'll keep the chill out nicely.

Additionally, look out for styles that adopt the same contoured panel approach as the tops and mid-layers covered earlier and you'll create a lovely shaped finish to your outfit. Designed for golf you know they'll also allow for freedom of movement.

Waterproofs don't have to be boxy either. The use of contrasting colour panels makes the world of difference and there are also styles with nipped-in waists
