Items of the Week: Washed Denim

This week we’re so excited by the launch of our 2014 Denim Guide that we had to choose our mens and womens items of the week from new arrival jeans!

This washed and distressed denim look is a key trend this Winter, and we love this G-Star Raw style in both mens jeans and womens jeans. Paired with a tee and some Converse or even dressed up, this versatile denim is an essential addition to this season’s wardrobe. Check out our inspiration and items of the week.

If you haven’t already, make sure you check out our Denim Guide for your right fit, trend, brand and everything in between!

Womens Trend: Wistfully White

Maybe it’s because the low Winter temps are making us dream of a Summer sunshine, or maybe it’s because this colour accentuates your tan and brings a new element of sophistication to your wardrobe, but we are currently crushing on the colour white.

Top to toe or with other colours and textures thrown in the mix, wistful whites will have you thinking of Summer in the South of France! Add a fedora and a mens style leather watch to your white dress or complete for that Euro Summer look. Take a look at some wistfully white inspiration we’ve come across and shop our favourites.

Mens Trend // Leather & PU

Trending in men’s fashion, the leather and PU (also known as Polyurethane) look is in and is invading the fashion scene. It is fast becoming a timeless staple for any man’s wardrobe in winter. The material is one that once invested in will last an eternity and can be worn for any occasion.

Jackets to vests to pants, leather & PU is seeping it’s way into every item of clothing. Zanerobe have taken on the trend, by incorporating it into their sure shot pants and shorts.

Introduce plain tees and bold fleeces to really set off the strong look that the leather does portray. Whether it is the real deal leather, the imitated type or the PU it should be added to your wardrobe!

Men’s Trend | Parkas | Jackets

Winter is about, so that means it’s time to get out your parka or jacket!

These will both keep you fashionable on the outside yet warm on the inside. The parka bases its design around the old military parkas, that consist of hardy materials. This durable jacket can be worn over a knit to provide extra warmth, or just accompany a plain tee for a fresh night out.

There are many styles of jackets that are worn today, everything from the traditional leather jacket, the bomber jacket, the denim jacket and even the spray jacket. Jackets are becoming more and more popular to wear between places and for a night out. The range of colours gives the category a new life with the various depths of greens and blues.

Checkout the jackets that have been dropping in at SurfStitch for this winter!

Winter’s here: Beanie Season

The official Winter season (rather than fashion’s version of Winter) has now set in, and we’re all going to be feeling the chill as the temperatures drop. Now is the perfect time to prepare with your trusty early-morning loving and bad-hair day best friend, the beanie.

Go for neutral colours such as various shades of grey and beige, or with black for a versatile piece, and pair with your hair out and your best Winter wardrobe. It’s a cute accessory addition to your wardrobe and as mentioned – let’s you get lazy with the upkeep of your ‘do!

Check out some beanie inspo and shop some of our SurfStitch favourites.
