In this post, I share answers to common bowling outfit questions, outfit tips, several bowling outfit ideas, and links to clothes for bowling.
BOWLING OUTFITS FAQ
Do you have to wear bowling shoes?
Most bowling alleys require special shoes be worn on the lanes. If you don’t have a professional pair of bowling shoes, you can rent a pair from the venue.
What socks should I wear bowling?
Low profile ankle socks will look great with any bowling outfit. Depending on your style, tube socks, mid-calf socks, and knee high socks are other options.
Do bowling alleys sell socks?
Generally, no. More upscale and popular bowling alleys might have socks for sale, along with other merchandise, however most places do not sell socks.
Can I wear a skirt or a dress bowling?
Skirts and dresses can be worn if they provide enough coverage throughout various movements. In my opinion, Active skirts and dress (with built in shorts) are the best option.
What are the best types of women’s clothes for bowling?
Leggings, jeans, t-shirts, pretty blouses/tanks and casual pullover sweaters are popular women’s clothes for bowling.
