Think burnt oranges, hot dry desert weather and light, sheer flowing cottons and multi-coloured prints. The desert chic trend is hotter than the Sahara itself right now, and the SurfStitch new arrivals are home to many items sporting the style. It has summer written all over it – providing coverage for that precious skin, while still being breathable enough to wear in the 30 degree Australian heat. Tigerlily, Tallow and so many more have included tribal prints and loose fitting cottons in old school cuts in their collections, reminiscent of Out of Africa and perfect for the summer wardrobe.
Our favourite picks are the flowing pants – both bell bottomed and gathered at the ankle, with flowing, loose fabric and bright prints! We don’t mind the maxi skirts or singlets either, and the new-school playsuits sporting the trend are not to be overlooked!

When Emily first started working at SurfStitch, I immediately knew that I adored her feminine and unique style. A lover of all things print, she adds a powerful punch to her wardrobe with an inspiring collection of nautical, floral and bohemian pieces. I’m utterly obsessed with her use of daring and bright patters for Autumn.

Coachella always exceeds expectations when it comes to style. Whether it’s blazing sunlight and punishing 100-degree-plus heat (38 degree Celsius for us Aussies) or gusty winds and rain, the girls (and guys) sure know how to turn up the heat.
This year the assortment of style for weekend 2 was quite unique, however florals, stripes and tribal prints seemed to be a popular feature. Prints were practically a requirement along with cute-as vintage accessories; outrageous headpieces and statement jewellery.
A sea of denim covered the desert terrain – everything from high-waisted cut-offs to old-skool denim onesies teamed with lace, bustiers, and rolled-up shirts.
Loose-fitting dresses were also popular making for the perfect festival look.
Here are some of our fave looks from Coachella day 1. Stay tuned, with more coming tomorrow.

This season, we have our eyes set on the lands far far away and exotic. Women’s dresses and tops are finding loads of character thanks to the latest in tribal prints. We’re even seeing this trend play a heavy influence on men’s tees, shirts and singlet’s. The patterns are bold, the colors are bright, and the details are culturally influenced.
