Autumn is time to embrace all the loveliness in the humble home. Warm bowls of steamy soup with your favourite book in your lap, snuggled up on the lounge in woollen socks and sleeping in well past your alarm. Autumn is the best season to embrace those cosy loungewear items that are sometimes often overlooked in your wardrobe “must haves,” however during the cooler months they become more essential than the latest party dress.
Loungewear is all about soft luxurious fabrics that are cosy enough to sleep in layered under chunky woollens for those chilly nights. Find matching sets or mix and match textures, colours and prints for a bit more fun. Luxe white, grey and ivory make for a soft luxurious feel, while coloured ugg boots and fun socks turn lazing around the home a bit more playful. Embrace loungewear items from SurfStitch because as the temperature drops they are sure to become your closest friend.
Trackies and Hoodies are perfect for lazing around.

We’ve already blogged all about our love for cable knit this Autumn/Winter season, but there’s a new obsession brewing…bursts of colour on your knits! Step away from the traditional black and add a colourful wave to your outfit with a bright and bubbly knit.
In a season known for the influx of darker coloured pieces, opt for lime greens, fluoro pinks and deep purples. Mix them with black jeans or plain denim, and accessorize with clashing beanies and warm scarves! Be playful and creative with your colours, and enjoy this bright and bubbly trend while it’s around!
Fromcardigans to accessories, SurfStitch has you covered in the cooler weather! Check out our style inspiration and how you can rock the trend.
Make it pop with a big bright knit over a dressy skirt or a pair of jeans!

The aliteration wasn’t deliberate, but the winter theme was. While we don’t get snow where we’re from, and while we’ve only just started autumn, we’re all feeling the need to get rugged up, grab that hot chocolate and stay indoors as the temperature drops below our tropical comfort zone! Dream with me, of the frosty windows protecting you from the cold while the fire crackles and you have a hot drink on the couch…we can imagine anyway!

There’s no shame in having a man crush – masquerade it as a style icon and you’re good to go. If you’re going to choose anyone, Chace Crawford is a good choice. Half preppy chic, half New York suave, Chace Crawford and his character on TV Series Gossip Girl have for the wardrobe thing right.
From collared shirts rolled to (but not past) the elbow, to woolen knits and chinos, Nate/Chace or whatever you want to call him, seems to know how to keep classy even in a casual setting. Chase his style by donning a long-sleeved shirt with your skinny jeans, a woolen knit with your chinos, and a perfectily tailored suit jacket for those more formal occasions.
Take a look at some of his best, and at how you can steal his style from SurfStitch.
