Our current collection of dresses on SurfStitch is definitely something to rave about. With a wide variation of shapes, styles and brands, no matter the occasion or the level of formality (if any), we’ve got you covered.
The casual day dress
Simple, comfortable and sequin-free, the casual day dress is a dress you can throw on before heading to the shops along with your Converse shoes or wear to the beach over your bikini with a pair of Havaianas. Flattering, easy and cute.

The shift dress
This one’s a little more versatile – worn with your boots or Vans during the day or dressed up with a pair of heels and a clutch bag in the evening. With straight lines and a loose fit, the shift dress shape is flattering and an all-round winner!

The skater skirt dress
This style hugs and accentuates the waist line and elongates and slims the legs, and is perfect for that night out or special event.

The bodycon dress
Tight, slim and daring, the bodycon dress is a number reserved for after-dark. With a tight and figure-hugging fit, wear this dress with a pair of heels and a confident attitude!

The midi-length dress
This length is trending hard, bringing a new level of sophistication to the traditional bodycon dress. This shape flattering length generally sits a couple of inches below the knees and acentuates the curve of your hips.

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.

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.

It’s still the long weekend so this Monday’s going to be nothing but mellow! Sleep ins, long breakfasts, sunny walks and general laziness before we head back to the usual weekly grind tomorrow.
It’s not often we get to switch off, lay back and let our minds wander on a Monday, so enjoy it! Check out some mellow Monday inspiration and let us know what you’re dreaming of this Monday?

There is absolutely no shame in admitting it: it is officially cardigan weather! Cooler than the knitted jumper and more suited to the indoors than the parka jacket, the cardigan is the perfect piece to throw over your outfit on a cooler day (whether or not it was your Nan’s favourite!).
Our two favourite trends right now that we’re seeing a lot of on SurfStitch are cardigans in neutral tones of wool, and ones with a tribal print.
Pair yours with your trackies and singlet at home, or with your tee, jeans and boots when you’re out – the cardi is the perfect addition to your Autumn and Winter wardrobe!
Check out some of our inspiration and shop our favourites.

Once upon a time a visible bra would have been looked at as taboo, tacky and completely unnecessary. However these days the more lace shown the better. Feminine, sexy and versatile lace bralettes are made to be shown under a loose singlet or sheer shirt. Pretty lingerie is the perfect option when the weather is so hot outside you want to wear as little as possible or when you are feeling a little bit confident and want to show a touch of sexiness. Seen in numerous street style blogs this is a trend that will continue into the cooler months peeking through a loose knitted jumper or shirt. Love a lace bra:
Cheap Monday Shape Lace Bra: Pink | Purple | Black
What to wear:
Cheap Monday Morgan XL Tank | Billabong Sea Through Me Top | First Base Sheer Tee
Add a sexy sheer:
First Base Sports Bra | Cheap Monday Mesh Mini Triangle Bra | First Base Peek A Boo

No, we don’t mean your grandmas beautiful patchwork quilt, but clothing with patches on them to give them a bit of extra texture, style and contrast!
Our latest favorite is denim with patched knees! Denim is so versatile, we love these patched jeans to change it up from the latest ripped jeans trend, try something new:
The Lee Mid Licks Jean in Revival Blue (left) are the perfect jeans to get this same look! You can also try the G-Star Raw Custom 5620 Jegging Skinny Jean for a darker denim.
In the men’s department we always enjoy a bit of good patch work to change up the same plane ol`guys shirts. Patchy stand out pockets and fleeces for the winter season.
