Men’s Trend: Collared Shirts

From the age of about 4 years old the collared shirt has been a must have for every guy’s wardrobe. The button down is a staple piece: being the page boy at your auntie’s wedding to your year 10 formal you can see how versatile a collared shirt really is.

Wear casually with walkshorts or beach shorts or for a night out with some chino pants or your fave pair of jeans.

Get some style inspiration from some of the world’s best surfers!

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

1

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.

So if you’re looking for a new outfit that you can wear anywhere and anytime, jump onto SurfStitch.com and check out the latest drop of RVCA gear and find out why we here at SurfStitch have so much love for this brand.

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.

Effortless Ensembles.

IMG_5448

There are lots of new arrivals streaming through the SurfStitch office doors as racks of clothing line the hallways and tubs of accessories clutter the floors. A range of new brands have landed on site including Isla Collective, Three of Something and Blue Juice. It’s all excitement here as we are anticipating the end of the winter woolies as the fresh summer product slowly begins to trickle through.

These Isla Collective pants and stripe top are a match made in fashion heaven. They compliment each other perfectly and while the weather is still on the chilly side mix up the patterns with a spot jumper or simply add a denim jacket and converse to complete this effortless ensemble.

Men’s Trend: Levis

We here at SurfStitch believe that a good quality set of denim is a winter staple that can’t be ignored. It should keep you warm when you go to check those early morning lines roll in at the local, and still look good enough to attract as much wanted attention from the females as needed when you head out on the town.  So if you have a similar mindset to us, and want some denim that ticks all the boxes, check out our range of Levis denim.

Levis has been an iconic denim brand since 1851, when it was created. From the quintessential favourites like the 501 through to vintage denim vests, this brand will provide no frills jeans that are not only on trend but also some of the comfiest and most durable denim you could own. levi bloglevi blog2levi blog 4

The SurfStitch teams pick of the Levis range is this new Denim Trucker Vest that Levis have dropped at our doorstep, it can add an individual look to any outfit and looks unreal over a plain tee. Mix it up over a pair of darker chinos or even rock double denim and chuck it over some black jeans for a get-up that will keep you getting that wanted attention from wandering eyes all night.
