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!

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.

YOU WEAR THE PANTS.

london-fashion-week-firstOne trend that continues to grab attention on the street style blogs is a women that knows how to wear the pants! Sophisticated, effortless and always comfy pants are a great option to add a touch of either glamour or to dress down an outfit. Whether you want to add a wide leg silk pant to add femininity to your outfit or rock it out in some leather pants they remain a strong option when you just don’t feel like being in a skirt. Pants are loose enough to wear through a warm summer and cool enough to add boots in winter. They really are the most versatile piece in your wardrobe and I can’t get enough!faea6307212f4f10e78729ea2008c1a60f0b6e5510fdf4d1715eff91f22fe9a3tumblr_m7037nJPDo1rn956wo1_500T343370DAH-TIGERLILY-4
