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

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

“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.

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.

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.
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.
Lev’s Denim Trucker Vest- Black Stone $99.95
