As you have probably gathered from Instagram, various fashion blogs and the other 1269 social media avenues you find yourself timelessly lost in, sports luxe is trending just about everywhere. Much like its timeless, simplistic friend by the name of Plain. Whether it be an over sized jersey, a basic tee, leather drop-crutch pant and now, wait for it, SWIMWEAR.
Don’t worry you don’t have to be Venus Williams to pull of the sports luxe vibe and you most certainly don’t have to feel like a wallflower wearing a plain swimsuit either. Bold colours, mesh panels, intricate cut out designs and a splash of print are on the top of our hit list for this season.

We’ve talked tropics, tribal and aztec prints but today we take inspiration from a life under the sea where time stands still and another world exists. Anything relating to the oceanic life is making a splash this summer with shades of blue, animal motifs and coral classics taking centre stage over skirts, dresses, swimwear and accessories. Take inspiration from below for a fresh take on the trend and get ready for a life under the sea.

This Summer, mens trends dictate that the print on your clothes should be louder than your voice, so dive straight into some of our favourites!
Don’t be afraid to go for bright colours and loud prints – just pair them with a plain, single-coloured item and a pair of Vans to rock the trend without your outfit taking over. It’s Summer, so it’s all about brighter shades and lighter fabrics – the mixture of loud colour and even louder print. Enjoy some of our favourite short sleeved tee and shirt picks and shorts & pants if you’d prefer to pair loud bottoms with a plain tee instead.

This week our favourite items on SurfStitch are bright, bubbly and full of colour! Both coming from our Nothing Over $30 sale, take a look at the mens and womens items chosen and at the colours they remind us of!
The Rusty Atoll Band Beach Short – Multi.
Red, yellow and blue with a little bit of snake print thrown in, these beach shorts are the perfect addition to your outdoor summer day in the sun. Throw on a pair of wayfarer sunglasses and a plain white tee and you’ll be ready for your summer day.
The Sass Emma Rainbow Cami – Print.
The pastel rainbow print on this cami is sure to brighten your day! Team with denim shorts and a pair of sandals for your afternoon ice cream, or throw bikinis on underneath and head to the beach! You’ll be brighter than the day ahead.
Here on the beautiful Gold Coast, as we come to the end of Winter and happily dive into Spring, the weather is warming up and the water is becoming a lot more inviting. While we might be getting ahead of ourselves, our tropical Spring can become forgiving, feeling more like Summer than it should! As Summer is on our minds, this week’s Items of the Week both have pops of tropical print on them! Leaving you thinking of palm trees and sunshine, the featured top and tee are sure to be your SurfStitch favourites of the week too.

Billabong Infinite Tank – White.
Paired with some denim shorts and a comfortable pair of sandals (with your bikinis underneath, obviously!), this singlet from Billabong is perfect for every day wear – whether it’s the surf club for lunch, your bike ride along the water or your day at the beach.
Zanerobe Mayhem Tee – White.
It’s a crisp white tee (otherwise known as a key wardrobe staple) but with a twist. Contrast pockets have been trending hard, but this one’s even better in our books, with the tropical print making an appearance. With boardies at the beach? Great. Chinos on for drinks afterward? Sure.
The sun is moving closer to us here in the Southern Hemisphere which means it’s time to start showing those pins off in some boardies or cute beach shorts.
In celebration of the sunny weather we’ve just had and the sunny weather to come our Item of the Week is printed shorts.
You can roll from the beach to lunch and these colorful shorts are so easy to pair with a tee or singlet.
Printed shorts are a fantastic way to brighten up your day. Pair with a plain top and you voila you’re ready to rock.
MINKPINK Love Parade Beach Shorts
Camo, floral or leopard print, there are so many print choices for guys this season. Complete the look with some Connies or Vans.
Obey TF Cargo Walkshort
Traditionally referred to as casual day wear and saved for the beach or day outings, shorts have now taken on a more grown up approach. Don’t feel like putting on a short party dress again this weekend? Why not choose the short option, they can look chic and sleek when worn with a blouse or cut out top and simple accessories. Choose a high waisted style with a pattern, leather look or slinky fabric to make this look more night time appropriate. Dress shorts are short and sweet, comfortable and you’ll never have to worry about accidental flashing moments again!
