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

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: Sunny Days

892216d1bd6325f0bf98775f35377777I learnt first hand this week that summer is well and truly on it’s way! I thoughy I could go to the beach without a hat and sunscreen- bad idea as the harsh summer rays got me and the back of my legs are red raw and even coming to work to sit on a chair all day is a challenge. So with that in mind this week I’m dedicating the items of the week to some of the great hats and caps that have just arrived at SurfStitch!

T431761ANAT-TIGERLILY-1_400X500

Tigerlily Rani Floppy Hat

This big floppy straw Tigerlily hat would compliment anyone in the sun whether you’re going for a lunch date with the girls or relaxing at the beach or poolside. It is classy enough to wear out with a sundress and sandals yet casual enough for those long weekend beach days.

The Critical Slide Society Val Jerk Cap

A cap is a guys greatest accessory. Throw it on for any occasion and you can immediately update your basic tee and short combo into something else. Not only will it keep the sun out of your face this summer go for a bright print like this Critical Slide Society one and add a bit of fun to your day!
