No longer just used for transporting your lunch to and from school, or for your hiking trip, the backpack has been fashionably adapted to the chic-est of outfits, and has replaced the handbags of many, both on the runway and on the street.
Nautical colours and camels seem to be all the rage for the boys – and Herschel has gotten it right (See below for the featured Herschel Backpack). Even Kanye’s getting into it – with snake skin being his choice (let’s be honest…we’re not surprised).
What we love about backpacks is their versatility – taking a leather backpack along with your more sophisticated and clean-lined outfits (blazers, skinny jeans and the like) and the bright aztec prints and earthy coloured backpacks to be teamed your summer dress, or your shorts & muscle tee on your daytime adventures.
The most simple way to re-work an outfit and the greatest thing that can go wrong with one. Right now at SurfStitch we are all about accessories with a superb range of shoes, watches, bags, hats, jewellery and sunnies landing on our door step.
It’s the small finishing touches that can really make a personality shine through, so get to know yours today and start accessorising!

Coachella weekend two ended in a bang, with exceptional performances and certainly, fashionable festival style. So it’s time we take it to the next level and get up close and personal with some of the top accessories Coachella has to offer. Let’s be honest…accessories, cross body bags and cute-as backpacks stole the show! Here’s a closer look at some of our standout statement pieces.
One of the key trends at this years Coachella was the boho, vintage look with outfits encompassing floral and Aztec prints, denim cut-offs, fringing and of course, cross body bags. Ideal styling for any festival, the cross body bag is perfect for dancing in the big tents, and is extremely practical!
Practical and trendy, the backpack makes quite the impression at this years Coachella Fest. And it’s no wonder really, with backpacks recently making a regular appearance on the tasteful shoulders of celebs such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Whitney Port and Rachel Bilson.
After 2 days of partying at Blues, you would have thought that we were slowing down, but no, it is quite the opposite! Check out our outfits that we have planned for day three …
This Von Zipper muscle tee is one of my favourite items in my wardrobe. Super comfy and slightly baggy, I think it compliments the rest of my outfit well. I have paired this with my Insight shorts, Billabong boots (again I know) and MinkPink bag. My boots and bag have proven to be one of my best purchases yet! I have managed to get three days out of them while changing my outfits up considerably. I have a feeling I may be taking these to California too.
Kia wore Jeans yesterday, I thought she was crazy, but it turned out to be a fair decision as it cooled down a lot last night. She has decided to rock a pair of jeans again today with an oversized Spare Tee, Urge Boots and Zanerobe Sunnies.
Kia was lucky enough to head to Sydney to check out Urge’s offices and their new Winter Range (this is where she picked up her boots). She has told me that the stock that Urge will be supplying SurfStitch will not disappoint. Plenty of Leather Boots, Sandals and Shoes, a recipe for an empty wallet!
Purchasing sunglasses is a very personal decision. One thing that I have found with the Zanerobe range at SurfStitch is that although the styles differ significantly, they seem to suit most face shapes and size.
Which is your fave pair of sunnies?
Check out the outfits that we have put together for today’s festivities.
I am not sure if you can tell, but I am a lover of oversized tees. This ‘I need a Taxi tee’ by Wildfox is one of my all time faves. I have coupled this with my Lee shorts, Army boots, MinkPink Bag, Billabong boots and Zanerobe sunnies.
