WOMENS TREND: BRALETTE + TOPS

7b55f5257ad017b3228d06ffb520b5d7Once upon a time a visible bra would have been looked at as taboo, tacky and completely unnecessary. However these days the more lace shown the better. Feminine, sexy and versatile lace bralettes are made to be shown under a loose singlet or sheer shirt. Pretty lingerie is the perfect option when the weather is so hot outside you want to wear as little as possible or when you are feeling a little bit confident and want to show a touch of sexiness. Seen in numerous street style blogs this is a trend that will continue into the cooler months peeking through a loose knitted jumper or shirt.464872b825d9f812ba742f1f8dc77ea3 img7017aBright-Bralette-Cosabella-N d2e13f0612d65001bab2e531f06b422f Love a lace bra:Lace

76efc67fd63aaafc5bee228e76cb8106There’s no better feeling than slouching around on the weekend or after work in your comfiest outfit.

CAPTAIN FIN CO // VANS

With the likes of Dane Reynolds, Noa Deane, Tanner Gudauskas and many more, Captain Fin Co. is a steezy, eclectic, new age take on the classic fin. Jazzy prints, bold colours and contemporary art designs make this brand a mind blowing colour force to be reckoned with. If you’re looking to stand out in the line up, you’re on the right track.

Wave: Mitch King- Photography: Pat Vaughan

If you’re into carving concrete lines and mongo footing down Santa Monica boulevard (or probably just your local neighbourhood) , hitting the slopes or getting real in the surf, Vans has you sorted. Vans have been creating sticky soles and effortless sports attire since March 16th, 1966. Like a wine, getting better with age, they continue to be the forefront of the skate, surf and snow industry with their classic style and simplistic vibes.

http://spoki.tvnet.lv/upload2/articles/65/650106/images/_origin_VANS-off-the-wall-4.jpg

Sometimes it takes two to tango, so Vans and Captain fin co, have done just that and teamed up to create one of the freshest surf/skate collaborations we have seen yet. Check out the Captain Fin Co twist on a classic Vans tee, here. And not to mention, the ultra lightweight, durable Vans/Captain fin co. Costa Mesa Sneaker.. perfect for those arvo sessions in the bowl.
