RIP CURL GETTING ACTIVE

The Rip Curl Pro in Bells Beach has just kicked off as the third and final event in the Australian leg of the WCT tour! This got us thinking about the latest from Rip Curl and I think it’s safe to say that the most exciting this coming from these guys in the near future is their new Active range!

Modelled by their gorgeous team riders making us jealous with their toned rigs and bronzed skin, in a location that’s making us even more jealous, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come in a couple of months from Rip Curl to SurfStitch!

CONVERSE: Platform Plus

Just when you thought they couldn’t get any quirkier, then came the Converse Platform Plus. It’s the ultimate sports luxe boot, their original Chuck Taylor shoe only with a secret built in heel. Added height, unique shape and a cool addition to your Converse collection, the Platform Plus won’t last long.

Pair with jeans and a tee or even with a t-shirt dress for a fresh look to your cooler weather wardrobe! PS: if you thought they couldn’t get any cooler, each colour has an epic sole and insole in crazy, bright paint-spattered colours. Enjoy!

Cardigan Weather!

There is absolutely no shame in admitting it: it is officially cardigan weather! Cooler than the knitted jumper and more suited to the indoors than the parka jacket, the cardigan is the perfect piece to throw over your outfit on a cooler day (whether or not it was your Nan’s favourite!).

Our two favourite trends right now that we’re seeing a lot of on SurfStitch are cardigans in neutral tones of wool, and ones with a tribal print.

Pair yours with your trackies and singlet at home, or with your tee, jeans and boots when you’re out – the cardi is the perfect addition to your Autumn and Winter wardrobe!

Check out some of our inspiration and shop our favourites.

Sometimes when our wardrobes get tired between pay cheques, and when our outfits just look like they need a bit of oomph, we forget that it’s the little things that can make all of the difference.

WOMENS TREND: BRALETTE + TOPS

7b55f5257ad017b3228d06ffb520b5d7Once upon a time a visible bra would have been looked at as taboo, tacky and completely unnecessary. However these days the more lace shown the better. Feminine, sexy and versatile lace bralettes are made to be shown under a loose singlet or sheer shirt. Pretty lingerie is the perfect option when the weather is so hot outside you want to wear as little as possible or when you are feeling a little bit confident and want to show a touch of sexiness. Seen in numerous street style blogs this is a trend that will continue into the cooler months peeking through a loose knitted jumper or shirt.464872b825d9f812ba742f1f8dc77ea3 img7017aBright-Bralette-Cosabella-N d2e13f0612d65001bab2e531f06b422f Love a lace bra:Lace
