It’s heating up in the SurfStitch HQ with everyone getting ready for Christmas and buying lots of goodies for their loved ones! What better way to inject this excitement and hotness into your life than through your clothing and accessories. This week is all about our new neons and a sure fire way to stand out this season! Go for a bright bikini or accessories or a tank with a hint of neon for the guys.
This item of the week post welcomes one of our favourite summer swimwear brands, NLP Women. We couldn’t be more excited to have them on board and I’m loving this bright green neoprene set. With a bandeau style top and mesh detailing it’s perfect for tanning at the beach or with your friends enjoying a summer pool party. Get this while it lasts as NLP is hot property!
Every guy needs a simple muscle tank to get them through the summer sunshine. This Zanerobe tank is made from soft fabric, has a simple muscle cut and features a bold aqua print on the front. Taking you from beach side to bar this summer pair with some chino’s and you’re good to go- the carona’s are calling!

Sheer and mesh fabrics are currently trending on my radar as not only do they add a little touch of sexiness to your outfit they are very breezy in this summer heat. Whether you want a head to toe sheer look or just a hint of it in the back or arms sheer is a versatile and easy trend that anyone can interpret in their individual way.
However, take note: sheer can look like lingerie! So don’t wear a sheer slip and pair it with your lacy black bra and undies underneath because you will end up being the topic of every by-standers conversation and looking like you should still be in bed! Instead, wear a bralette underneath (we’re loving the new One Teaspoon) or opt for a piece that isn’t sheer across the bust. This trend is sexy, effortless and oh so cool so rock it in your own way because we’re loving it here at SurfStitch HQ!

My favourite look for my current long weekend when I spent the days on the sandy beaches and the afternoons in my white sundress with cocktail in hand. White is the colour of the season as it brightens up any outfit and looks great with a healthy tan! Carry a large bag for all your essentials and a cute straw hat and you’re set.

We’ve talked tropics, tribal and aztec prints but today we take inspiration from a life under the sea where time stands still and another world exists. Anything relating to the oceanic life is making a splash this summer with shades of blue, animal motifs and coral classics taking centre stage over skirts, dresses, swimwear and accessories. Take inspiration from below for a fresh take on the trend and get ready for a life under the sea.
