Golf surged in popularity in 2020, with a record 6.2 million people taking up the sport last year, according to Golf Digest. Naturally, all of those newbies need new fits for the course. Men and women can score stylish golf apparel at Peter Millar (petermillar.com) in Suburban Square. The brand, which marks its 20th anniversary this year, is stocked with performance sportswear separates and other golf essentials. Millar’s summer must-haves include colorful polo shirts spun from UPF 50+, moisture-wicking fabric. For cool club-branded attire, Philadelphia Country Club, St. David’s Country Club and Radley Run are all carrying custom logo bags from FH Wadsworth (fhwadsworth.com) for its members. The golf accessories label is a staple of private clubs in its Hamptons hometown, and partnered with Jack Nicklaus in late 2020 on a trio of duffel bag designs featuring the golf great’s own golden bear logo.

PRETTY IN PEARLS
Philadelphia fashion mavens and celebrities like Kris Jenner and Kyle Richards have been flocking to Gladwyne for the eye-catching jewelry at Mina Danielle (shopminadanielle.com) since the start of the decade. Former real estate agent Marissa Small found her forte for jewelry design when she began devoting her time to the craft, sourcing semiprecious gemstones, pearls and metals before learning how to create one-of-a-kind pieces through various techniques. She opened a suburban storefront in 2013 and recently moved to a new address in Bryn Mawr. With designs that infuse contemporary trends with high-fashion style, shoppers can expect to see Small’s handcrafted signature combinations such as South Sea and Tahitian pearls on handrolled leather and pavé diamond beads juxtaposed with gemstones and oxidized sterling silver.
