Heritage fashion 2019: The 19 best outfits from Saturday (whoa, those pastels)

Though a bit chilly at times, the weather on Saturday — the third day of play at the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing PGA Tour golf tournament on Hilton Head Island — was nearly perfect.

The sunny skies and cooler than usual April temperatures meant spectators could save their summer wear and get decked out in their favorite spring pieces.

Saturday was also the day to break out the plaid.

Longtime tournament fans showed their dedication to tartan in big and small ways, right down to the accessory.

Here are the best outfits of Saturday.

MaryLou Haraburd and her husband are locals and have been attending Heritage since 1981. For MaryLou, the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing golf tournament is such a special event because “there’s an entire legacy and celebration to Heritage.” Her husband was a caddy for Heritage in ‘73 and ‘74 and says “it means so much for our family to celebrate each year.” MaryLou has always made sure to dedicate one day for wearing plaid and did a wonderful job this year by matching her hat, blazer and blouse.

Wearing plaid outside of the fall season is completely encouraged here at RBC Heritage. Wearing plaid isn’t just limited to a suit coat, blazer or pants. Some of the attendees Saturday found ways to wear plaid using accessories. Hannah Cagas

Puneeta, left, and Arya Gupta, right, are from the Hilton Head Island area and looked absolutely stunning Saturday morning, matching each other in white. The mother and daughter duo said they “did plan to match their outfits.” Even though the weather was cooler than usual, Arya chose to go without a jacket because she felt “it would take away from the overall look of her outfit.” They attend Heritage each year and said they look forward to celebrating the event with family and friends. Puneeta has also incorporated some plaid into her look by wearing earrings from the Little Fish BOATEAK. Hannah Cagas

Anum Kuyper of Virginia styles her plaid a bit differently with high waisted pants, a crop top, jacket and heels. Her trendy outfit is from Europe and says she loves collecting and wearing plaid. To add a bit more color, Anum also fashioned a small plaid scarf for herself to complete her look.

Mary and Lilly Bach make an adorable, classic mommy-daughter duo as both outfits looked stylish and comfortable. Both were well dressed for the cooler weather and say their outfits today are the warmest pieces they packed. Being classy never goes out of style and these two ladies wore their outfits so well.

Jun is visiting from Columbia. This year is her first time attending Heritage. She said she wasn’t quite sure what to expect but, so far, thought it to be a very nice, wonderful event. Jun creatively and flawlessly tied her outfit together by matching her purse, shoestrings and shorts.

It’s hard to miss Joanna Baeren’s all-plaid outfit and many recognize her as the “woman in plaid.” After her acting career in Hollywood, Joanna moved to the Hilton Head area and has been here for 33 years. Her entire outfit from her hat to her purse is completely handmade using one single bed sheet. “I made everything from one bed sheet last night and love coming here to Heritage to walk around.”
