Stone Cold Fox x BeachRiot

The fine ladies from Stone Cold Fox have once again joined forces with Beach Riot to bring us this insanely cool collaboration…and we couldn’t be happier!

They have managed to mix up some flirty shapes with some timeless prints and fabrics that deserve a place in every girl’s swimsuit collection, and from the cheeky bottoms to the more conservative one piece, there is a style to suit and satisfy all!

For most of our friends overseas it is the perfect time to add these beauties to your shopping carts, and for all of our Aussie shoppers, the cooler temps we have been experiencing over here are definitely no excuse to hold back on this one – we never know when these two power houses will come together again…we’ve got to strike while we can.

Shop the pieces on SurfStitch here.

SPORTS LUXE, SPLASH OF PRINT AND PLAIN, SIMPLE BIKINIS

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.

TRENDING: UNDER THE SEA

pinterest

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.

MENS PRINTS: Get Loud.

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.

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: Pops of Tropics

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.

Womens tee

6531182AWHT-BILLABONG-1

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.

Mens tee

107-WWWHI-ZANEROBE-1

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.
