Leopard Obsession

We thought this trend wouldn’t hang around, but it most certainly has. From footwear to bags to dresses and even swimwear, leopard print is just as big this season as it has been for the last few.

How so, you ask? It’s been changed up a bit, with bold and unexpected colours and larger and more graphic prints. Check out some of our SurfStitch leopard favourites and check out some inspiration we’ve come across.

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!

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.
