Obsession: Overalls

denim-overalls-trend-fashion-featureIt’s time to channel your inner child as the 90s classics and “Full House” days are making a serious comeback! We are currently obsessing over the denim overall trend that is going to be a huge hit this coming summer. Take note from these street style babes and wear a striped or basic tee underneath adding a touch of grunge with shirts tied around the waist and bucket bags. Also, throw on a pair of white cons or docs and you’re ready to hit the streets. This season it’s all about experimenting and having a bit of fun with fashion so why not try the Tallow Pineapples Overall or choose a leather, white or floral pair for a quirky alternate to denim. Denim overalls are boy-meets-girl cool, effortless and fun!

The New Bohemians

Every day I get more and more excited as I see our New Arrivals racks stacking up with some gorgeous new boho inspired pieces.

The Bohemian trend is definitely one that I can see taking off this Spring. New Boho is all about making all the traditional boho pieces more accessible and easy to wear every day and every way. I know that I will trending this hard at the Splendour in the Grass Festival next week.

This is one trend that has the potential to go awfully wrong if over styled but if you can nail the New Boho look you will be a radiant gypsy goddess.

Things to love about Boho Chic:

  • Braided hair
  • Soft linens and knits
  • Bold colours
  • Flecks of gold here and there
  • Shoes not neccisarily neccessary
  • Hats over messy hair
  • Dipping with jewels like an Indian princess

Trending: RVCA

RVCA is self-described as a “design driven lifestyle brand, free from passing trends.” What does that mean I hear you ask? Well it simply means that RVCA creates timeless threads that are cooler than a wet wetsuit on a Winter’s morning. RVCA has the image of being an artistic and creative brand that embodies art, music, fashion and a modern surf lifestyle. This image is epitomised  by team riders such as Ford Archbold and Alex Knost soul arching the brand onto the fashion and surf scene and helping shape the various classic looks that RVCA are known for.

Street Style Obsession: Denim

modelcocosmetics

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.” -  Yves Saint-Laurent

White, washed, black, skinny, boyfriend, denim and basics, denim and stripes, denim on denim. Really, what can’t you do with denim? It’s got to be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe, right alongside the humble white tee. There are denim shorts and skirts for summer, jeans and jackets for winter and shirts for everything in between. Denim is a 365 days a year item that can be worn with everything and anything that you already own.

We are currently obsessing over this street style favourite and regular; denim has become a girls best friend. The best thing about it is that you can wear your jeans to death as the worn in distressed look adds character and individuality to each pair. And if you’re wanting your favourite denim jeans to last you right into summer, why not take to a bit of DIY on the weekend and cut them into your favourite summer shorts. Below are my favourite denim looks whether you prefer the skirt, chambray shirt or want to try a bit of denim on denim you really can’t go wrong.

Women’s Trend: The Grunge Girl

IMG_30761

The thrown together, I just got out of bed look that any girl can pull off is back with a bang at SurfStitch! Look back to the 90s when queens were in, Gwen ruled, Drew was too cool for school and Moss just had it all going on. The grunge girl is all about plaid, block colours, ripped denim and a fearless attitude of just not giving a damn!

90s grunge was all about the supermodels that defined their time, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer. The 2013 version of the trend has been influenced with a touch of femininity, it’s about defining the line between grunge and glam, tomboy and girly. Embrace being free spirited, carefree and cool with a model off duty look that is made up of relaxed knits, lots of denim, Dr martens, men’s t-shirts, maxis and flannelette. Take inspiration from the catwalks, street style and Cara Delevingne who manages to perfect the grunge trend of 2013. Shop all grunge looks at the Tough It Out trend page or shop my picks of the trend below.
