How short? Short-short Golf is a game of inches, and hemlines were clearly inching up at the U.S. Women's Open last weekend at Oakmont. The look was trim, belted short-shorts, like these worn by Brittany Lang for the second round.

Nice stems Natalie Gulbis, one of the most glamorous women golfers, wore short skirts throughout the open. Let's call them "miniskorts."

Sleeveless Baring a different power look, Michelle Wie went sleeveless during the Open. This gave her amazing shoulder turn a striking finish and was especially interesting since the sleeve is prime space for sponsorship logos. Nike, which sponsors Wie, probably figured the graphic swoosh cap did the job.

The Pink Panther Winner Paula Creamer, a panther not a tiger, gets her nickname from her predilection for pink. She went pretty classic on Sunday in an Adidas ClimaCool "Soft Touch" pink polo and a white ClimaCool skort. The pink shoes, also by Adidas, are in a color made just for her.

Wild Plaids A number of women went for striking plaid clothes, including Sakura Yokomine of Japan, who wore a purplish plaid matching skirt and blouse on Sunday. An iconoclast, Yokomine goes way past parallel on her backswing (club pointing almost to the ground) and wore knee socks every day of the tournament.

Just Plain Wild Christina Kim, in porkpie straw hat (with pigtails flying out the sides), abstract pink-and-gray color-block shirt and pink capris, definitely pushed the envelope.

Wild and wonderful South Korean golfer Na Yeon Choi did her version of the Anthony Kim approach, superathletic with gonzo accessories. In this case, red tablecloth-check trousers, white compression undershirt, striped-sleeve shirt, and white belt with big statement gold buckle. Go for it, baby!
