SUMMER IS COMING…

It’s not here yet, and early morning temperatures wouldn’t suggest that it’s on the way, but we here on the Gold Coast (who are lucky weather-wise to say the least) can see the tell-tale signs. Having passed the shortest day, the length of the sun being up in the sky is increasing, we’re piling on less snow gear for our morning walks (ha ha) and we’re seeing plenty of brand new Summery arrivals dropping on SurfStitch.

Get your Summer dresses, accessories and swimsuits ready, because it’s nearly here… Summer is coming! Enjoy some Summer inspo to get you in the mood, and shop some of our favourite ‘it’s nearly here‘ pieces!

Womens Trend: Wistfully White

Maybe it’s because the low Winter temps are making us dream of a Summer sunshine, or maybe it’s because this colour accentuates your tan and brings a new element of sophistication to your wardrobe, but we are currently crushing on the colour white.

Top to toe or with other colours and textures thrown in the mix, wistful whites will have you thinking of Summer in the South of France! Add a fedora and a mens style leather watch to your white dress or complete for that Euro Summer look. Take a look at some wistfully white inspiration we’ve come across and shop our favourites.

Winter’s here: Beanie Season

The official Winter season (rather than fashion’s version of Winter) has now set in, and we’re all going to be feeling the chill as the temperatures drop. Now is the perfect time to prepare with your trusty early-morning loving and bad-hair day best friend, the beanie.

Go for neutral colours such as various shades of grey and beige, or with black for a versatile piece, and pair with your hair out and your best Winter wardrobe. It’s a cute accessory addition to your wardrobe and as mentioned – let’s you get lazy with the upkeep of your ‘do!

Check out some beanie inspo and shop some of our SurfStitch favourites.

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: The Khaki Parka

A Khaki Parka can be worn with just about anything! It is the perfect investment piece as the weather starts to change here in Australia. You should find one that matches your local climate for maximum use, if located in an area that’s prone to more wind and rain than other areas, go for a water proof parka. If you don’t get much of a winter where you’re located then opt for a lighter fabric! The options with this little guy are endless!

Check out some styles we stock here.

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: The Grey Marle Sweater

This week we’ve experienced a cold snap here on the Gold Coast and it’s made us want to rug up from morning to night! For this particular reason, in the spirit of staying toasty in this early Winter weather, our items of the week are the mens and womens grey marle sweaters. Crew neck design, warm fleece fabric and a style that can be dressed up (with a collared shirt underneath and a pair of pants) or dressed down with a matching pair of trackies, this is our favourite wardrobe option for chilly days like today.

Check out our items of the week inspiration and shop our mens and womens picks on SurfStitch!

Don’t forget, today is the last day to get 20% off mens and womens jumpers & hoods and knits & cardigans, so you can use the promo code COVERUP to get your grey marle sweater at a discount! Ends at midnight AEST on 09.05.14, see site for details.
