RIP CURL GETTING ACTIVE

The Rip Curl Pro in Bells Beach has just kicked off as the third and final event in the Australian leg of the WCT tour! This got us thinking about the latest from Rip Curl and I think it’s safe to say that the most exciting this coming from these guys in the near future is their new Active range!

Modelled by their gorgeous team riders making us jealous with their toned rigs and bronzed skin, in a location that’s making us even more jealous, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come in a couple of months from Rip Curl to SurfStitch!

DROP CROTCH TREND

The drop crotch trend is either one you’ll love or hate. Drop crotch pants for the ladies has been around since last Winter however this season we are seeing a big floral and print injection as well as some super slouchy track pants.

With the addition of lots of new gorgeous prints you can rock this look without looking too masculine. Add some ankle boots and a hat and you’re a perfect boho babe.

Or channel the sports luxe trend with some of our new drop crotch jeans in denim and PU, these look great with some heels and an oversize top.

I am heading overseas in June and I have already planned the perfect travelling outfit for the plane. These comfy drop crotch trackies look great but are so comfortable.

Cardigan Weather!

There is absolutely no shame in admitting it: it is officially cardigan weather! Cooler than the knitted jumper and more suited to the indoors than the parka jacket, the cardigan is the perfect piece to throw over your outfit on a cooler day (whether or not it was your Nan’s favourite!).

Our two favourite trends right now that we’re seeing a lot of on SurfStitch are cardigans in neutral tones of wool, and ones with a tribal print.

Pair yours with your trackies and singlet at home, or with your tee, jeans and boots when you’re out – the cardi is the perfect addition to your Autumn and Winter wardrobe!

Check out some of our inspiration and shop our favourites.

TALULAH AT FASHION WEEK

Talulah pieces are instantly recognisable by their feminine and floral feel and classic silhouettes.

Worn by some of my favourite Australian ladies Megan Gale, Rebecca Judd, Jennifer Hawkins and Carrie Bickmore.

Kelli Wharton’s timeless designs evoke sunny days at the races or late afternoon cocktail parties. Whatever the occasion you are sure to stand out wearing a Talulah maxi dress or classic cap sleeved after dark dress.
