DROP CROTCH TREND

The drop crotch trend is either one you’ll love or hate. Drop crotch pants for the ladies has been around since last Winter however this season we are seeing a big floral and print injection as well as some super slouchy track pants.

With the addition of lots of new gorgeous prints you can rock this look without looking too masculine. Add some ankle boots and a hat and you’re a perfect boho babe.

Or channel the sports luxe trend with some of our new drop crotch jeans in denim and PU, these look great with some heels and an oversize top.

I am heading overseas in June and I have already planned the perfect travelling outfit for the plane. These comfy drop crotch trackies look great but are so comfortable.

TALULAH AT FASHION WEEK

Talulah pieces are instantly recognisable by their feminine and floral feel and classic silhouettes.

Worn by some of my favourite Australian ladies Megan Gale, Rebecca Judd, Jennifer Hawkins and Carrie Bickmore.

Kelli Wharton’s timeless designs evoke sunny days at the races or late afternoon cocktail parties. Whatever the occasion you are sure to stand out wearing a Talulah maxi dress or classic cap sleeved after dark dress.

Check out Talulah’s Autumn showcase at the Melbourne Fashion Festival with all these prints now available on SurfStitch.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: STRIPES

Stripes are an absolute wardrobe must have. A wardrobe staple throughout the decades, stripes first came in to vogue in the 1920s and have not gone out of fashion since.

The timelessness of the print is evident when you look back over pictures of style icons from the past century such as James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Edie Sedgwick.

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.
