Everyone needs at least one hat. There are heaps of hats that are trending around, though the wider ones are the ones that are keeping these perfect winter days sun rays, from reaching our face. Bucket hats and wide brimmed hats are all the rage and its not hard to see why. So many colours and styles are getting released all over the shop, we love it!

Mens Trend // Stripes

Stripes are having another rapid growth in the mens fashion scene. Stripes have been a female dominated trend for the past couple of seasons, but now we are seeing an injection of stripes into the men’s arena.The stripes are almost becoming a timeless piece of clothing for any man’s wardrobe.

They are jumping onto the newest jumpers, knits and tees, and are not disappointing! The common stripe in black and white or navy and white, creates endless options of outfits. My favourite stripe outfit is a striped navy and white tee, flat blue jeans turned up and a black or navy pair of vans! But why follow my favourite striped outfit, when you can create your own at SurfStitch.

Up or Down // Cuff Pants

As of late, Cuffed Pants have been increasingly popular. This is a pant that can be worn various ways throughout the year, customising the look you want by pulling the cuff up to high shin level or leaving it down, whether you wear thongs or shoes this trending pant seems to have limitless options. Even rolling up your jeans can create the cuffed pant look, that can be accompanied by a simple shirt and jacket for winter.

The range of these pants is becoming very vast and ranging from basic neutral colours to extrinsic patterns that give you the option of a feature piece of clothing for any wardrobe.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: EVERYDAY EASINESS

This week I’m loving simple, easy to wear pieces. Much like your basics, easy to wear pieces can be thrown on in any situation and you’ve got a stylish outfit ready to walk out the door. Easy to wear pieces are very much statement items that you can pair back with your basics. Whether it’s a printed maxi skirt, striped dress or silk cami for the girls or bright shoes or printed tee for the guys, these pieces will save you from those ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ moments time and time again.1e013fdb1d45e4fe897c3aee46d3a75dwpid-Photo-17-Oct-2013-515-pm1

These Thrills skorts provide the comfort of a short with the elegance of a skirt. Featuring a rose printed pattern against a dark backdrop they are simple enough for day yet popping enough at night. Change shoes from flat boots to a chunky heel and tough accessories for multiple looks. This will become your go-to piece from summer into autumn!
