Essentials Between Seasons

Halfway through winter already, thank god for that! It’s been a chilly winter so far, so we can only hope that spring brings warmer days with even better weather. For that your going to need the essentials for the seasonal transition.

1. The throw over jacket that will provide good warmth but not winter warmth that makes you cosy, just a warmth that is comfortable. A bomber jacket or a cardigan would be the most appropriate for this occasion. DMA36356IND-DEUS-1Deus Ex Machina Ian Jacket – Indigo L-600561-J05CHAS-LEE-1Lee Over and Over Knit Cardigan – Charcoal Stripe 

2. Pants that can be versatile in any condition. A pair that wont be too hot, but a pair that aren’t going to let you freeze. Pants that are comfortable and durable. PAM0690DOL-RUSTY-1Rusty Hook Out Beach Pant – Dark Olive 11-03-008NVYAC-AFENDS-1Afends Beach Pant – Navy Acid

3. Just the right accessories that will bring your outfit together, who knows when it may be sunny. You could need sunglasses that block out the mid morning glare, even the right pair of shoes that won’t hurt your feet whilst exploring on those awesome spring days. A watch that assists you when understanding the winter to spring tidal times.

Leopard Obsession

We thought this trend wouldn’t hang around, but it most certainly has. From footwear to bags to dresses and even swimwear, leopard print is just as big this season as it has been for the last few.

How so, you ask? It’s been changed up a bit, with bold and unexpected colours and larger and more graphic prints. Check out some of our SurfStitch leopard favourites and check out some inspiration we’ve come across.

SUMMER IS COMING…

It’s not here yet, and early morning temperatures wouldn’t suggest that it’s on the way, but we here on the Gold Coast (who are lucky weather-wise to say the least) can see the tell-tale signs. Having passed the shortest day, the length of the sun being up in the sky is increasing, we’re piling on less snow gear for our morning walks (ha ha) and we’re seeing plenty of brand new Summery arrivals dropping on SurfStitch.

Get your Summer dresses, accessories and swimsuits ready, because it’s nearly here… Summer is coming! Enjoy some Summer inspo to get you in the mood, and shop some of our favourite ‘it’s nearly here‘ pieces!
