Can’t Get Enough of SurfStitch Autumn New Arrivals.

Autumn is well and truly in the air. Autumn is all about the mornings being dark and crisp as the sunrise spills over the ocean creating bursts of pink and purples in the air. You can get out a good book and lay in the midday sun with the waft of warm baked cupcakes floating in the air. Doonas come out at night to snuggle under with a good movie and as the leaves outside turn a deep orange.

It’s also time for Autumn dressing so get out your chunky knits and layer them over your summer staples.Throw it over dresses, with shorts or match this bright Billabong knit with a simple striped tee, Friend of Mine overalls and your trusty converse.

Friend Of Mine Susie Blue Overalls- Levi Blue, Billabong Runaround Tee- Peacoat Stripe, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Dainty Lo Shoe- White, From St Xavier Femi Bracelet- Orange & Blue

Men’s Autumn dressing calls for the return of your favourite most lived in jeans, easy to wear hoodies and jumpers and a great pair of sneakers. Embrace the animal trend this Autumn with this Thrills cobra faced jumper thrown on with a dark pair of jeans and burgundy sneakers. I can’t get enough of these Oakley woodgrain sunglasses, with a slightly reflective lens and timber finish they’re the perfect addition to any outfit.

Thrills Endless Bummer Crew Feece- Acid Black, Dr Denim Snap Jean- Original Blue RawKustom Friday Hi Shoe- PortOakley Garage Rock Sunglasses- Woodgrain

The key to the seasonal months is to buy pieces that are easily versatile and can mix and match with what you already own. Just buying a few new pieces can update your wardrobe and create multiple outfits. The two jumpers and jeans below can all be mixed and matched together whether you’re after a casual day outfit or something a little more special for that night time occasion.

Back In Black.

SurfStitch brand Lee contracted LA skater, filmaker and photographer Mike Piscitelli to shoot their AW 13 wear. And so, with the help of models Cole Mohr and Cora Keegan the following tale of late night rock and roll and anarchy was created all covered in tattoo’s, glitter, torn fabric and of course, the colour black.

Take a look behind the scenes with the video below and don’t forget to check out the new Lee range available on SurfStitch!

Brand Love: Soludos

The Soludos espadrilles are the shoe of the moment. Soludos are a timeless essential that combine a comfort feel with a chic look and surpass trends throughout the years. The espadrilles hailed from Pyrennean Occitania and Catalonia and have been around since the early 14th century. Soludos have combined this classic styling with a modern twist incorporating the season’s hottest trends into footwear in the form of stripes, patterns and bold colours.

Favoured by celebs and bloggers alike including Kate Bosworth and Aussie blogger Zanita these simple slip ons are perfect for the beach to the city streets. Not as causal as a thong yet not as formal as a ballet flat Soludos espadrilles are a wardrobe staple. The perfect match for your denim cut offs and tee combo or take note from Zanita and dress down an otherwise elegant skirt with a patterned shoe.

Wear Soludos in confidence knowing they combine 100% cotton and eco-friendly jute sole to let your feet breath in even the hottest of 40+ days! With a range of colours and patterns there is a Soludo to suit any stride. Espadrilles have been the epitome of Mediterranean dressing for centuries and we at SurfStitch have come to the conclusion that Summer is Soludos.

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: PIECES THAT POP

As the sun shines ever brighter and festival season comes ever closer, our wardrobes at SurfStitch are calling out for brighter, lighter and louder pieces. We’ve gone on about colour pops and loud patterns – and the trend isn’t budging as more brands bring out crazy brights for both ladies and gents new arrivals.

Ladies, can we get a round of applause for…

The MINKPINK Pipe Down Skirt – Yellow Pink - $59.99.

Appropriately named, this little number yells and screams loud enough to be a statement piece in your summer wardrobe. Paired with a white singlet or tee, it’s a gorgeous daytime outfit, and paired with a cropped top and a pair of wedge heels, it’s the perfect piece for summer evening cocktails.

Gentlemen, can we get a round of applause for…

The Von Zipper Couch Surfer Singlet – Magenta – $45.99.

Singlets are slowly becoming a guys best friend on sticky hot summer days, and what better way to rock one than to go with colours that pop! Step out of your comfort zone a little, and don a statement singlet that’ll get heads turning.

Check out the womens new arrivals and mens new arrivals this week at SurfStitch.
