It's time for another edition of the Style Insider. This time we look at a recap of the best styles worn by players at the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.

Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf & House of Fleming)

Dustin Johnson's winning kit serves as a great example of where golf fashion is today. The slim fits, subtle textures, micro pattern, structured hat, and athletic kicks were completely on trend. Throughout the tournament, DJ sported the latest and greatest from Adidas Golf, including the Climacool Gradient Polo, Ultimate Tapered-Fit Pant, and TOUR360 BOOST shoes. The tonal belts from House of Fleming were smart, too.

Loud floral patterns have been all the rage in menswear this year, and they have finally made their way to the fairways. If you are looking to get in on the trend this summer, then these bold botanicals are a must-have. Pro tip – when opting for a daring print, follow Horschel's and Lingmerth's lead by keeping the rest of your look quiet and simple.

Bubba Watson (Oakley & G/FORE)

Bubba Watson became the latest player to make the switch to high-tops when he laced up G/FORE's new Crusader with a basketball-inspired silhouette, color blocked design and an aggressive traction system on the outsole. Bubba is really pushing the boundaries of golf fashion this year with G/FORE's colored gloves and hip kicks.

Gregory Bourdy (FootJoy)

Best. Shoes. Ever. We've seen sports teams' logos, flags, and kids' initials on players' shoes, but Frenchman Gregory Bourdy's custom FootJoys with a glass of wine stitched into the heel take the cake (or the cork – sorry).

Emiliano Grillo (Callaway Apparel)

The best apparel scripts are the ones that have a personal connection with the player and go beyond highlighting the latest apparel from a brand. That was the case with Emiliano Grillo's script. Friday saw him in the colors of his native Argentina. Saturday he opted for the colors of River Plate, his favorite Argentinian soccer club. Sunday's kit offered a tip of the hat to his countryman Angel Cabrera, who won the U.S. Open at Oakmont in 2007. Bravo, Emiliano!

Bryson DeChambeau (Puma Golf)

The Wardrobe Malfunction Award goes to Bryson DeChambeau for this rookie mistake. Apparently, his science classes at SMU didn't cover the effects of a hot iron on a polyester shirt. Bryson’s iron game is obviously better than his ironing game.

Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf) & Adam Scott (Uniqlo)

Rory has been rockin' these sleek Blade Collar Polos from Nike Golf since early this year. While these aren't a full-blown trend right now, other players and brands, like Adam Scott and Uniqlo, are jumping on the bandwagon. The advantage goes to Rory and Nike in this case. Scott's shirt looked more like a Henley than a golf polo.

Scott Piercy (J.Lindeberg)

Piercy's style was as sharp as his game at Oakmont. He was on point throughout the tourney in all-over prints, dual-tone outfits, monochromatic looks and well-tailored fits. These are easy and stylish looks for amateurs to copy.

Kevin Na (Elord), Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf) & Rafa Cabrera-Bello (Oakley)

If you are looking to jump on the next up and coming trend, keep an eye on polos with contrasting sleeves. We saw several takes on this design at Oakmont. Na and Cabrera-Bello played contrasting sleeves against color blocking, while Rickie worked in a graphical print.

Jason Dufner (Vineyard Vines)

(Keyur Khamar/PGA TOUR)

We usually see Dufner in conservative and preppy looks from Vineyard vines, but he went outside the box with this digital camo print on Saturday. Camo is showing no signs of slowing down. Players and brands are just finding new ways of spinning it.

Andrew Landry (Oxford Golf)

(Keyur Khamar/PGA TOUR)

Cinderella story Andrew Landry proved that you can successfully blend classic looks with contemporary details. This all-over print polo was fashion forward and timeless at the same time.

Harris English (Peter Millar)

Harris English showed how to keep it clean and classic while adding a splash of color. These 6-pocket pants offer a cool and casual look both on and off the course this summer. Wearing bright colors below the waist always makes a stronger statement than up top.

Justin Rose (Adidas Golf)

Yes, you can go home again, or you can at least return to a previous apparel sponsor. With Adidas looking to sell Ashworth, it was no surprise to see J-Ro returning to the mother brand and donning the 3-stripes again.
