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.

Boots || Men’s Boots

Boots are the perfect partner for all your winter jackets and jeans. The many different styles of boots can be a perfect excuse for any man to build his footwear wardrobe. If your after a chunky and heavier look then the high top, Timberlandsor Dr. Martens are more for you. On the other side of the boot scale, Vanishing elephant and Windsor Smith offer a a more shoe style of boot that is low cut and generally in a elegant suede or leather.

The colder season tends to bring out the heavier fashion, so it is no surprise that boots are trending. Your boots don’t have to be just for a dressy occasion, they can be for casual wear and work wear. Paired with chinos (turned up or down) and a jacket you have the perfect casual winter outfit.

SurfStitch have a range of boots that are fit for building any man’s footwear wardrobe.

Womens Trend: Wistfully White

Maybe it’s because the low Winter temps are making us dream of a Summer sunshine, or maybe it’s because this colour accentuates your tan and brings a new element of sophistication to your wardrobe, but we are currently crushing on the colour white.

Top to toe or with other colours and textures thrown in the mix, wistful whites will have you thinking of Summer in the South of France! Add a fedora and a mens style leather watch to your white dress or complete for that Euro Summer look. Take a look at some wistfully white inspiration we’ve come across and shop our favourites.

ITEMS OF THE WEEK: The Grey Marle Sweater

This week we’ve experienced a cold snap here on the Gold Coast and it’s made us want to rug up from morning to night! For this particular reason, in the spirit of staying toasty in this early Winter weather, our items of the week are the mens and womens grey marle sweaters. Crew neck design, warm fleece fabric and a style that can be dressed up (with a collared shirt underneath and a pair of pants) or dressed down with a matching pair of trackies, this is our favourite wardrobe option for chilly days like today.

Check out our items of the week inspiration and shop our mens and womens picks on SurfStitch!

Don’t forget, today is the last day to get 20% off mens and womens jumpers & hoods and knits & cardigans, so you can use the promo code COVERUP to get your grey marle sweater at a discount! Ends at midnight AEST on 09.05.14, see site for details.
