Get Dressed Up

Our current collection of dresses on SurfStitch is definitely something to rave about. With a wide variation of shapes, styles and brands, no matter the occasion or the level of formality (if any), we’ve got you covered.

The casual day dress

DayDress-inspo

Simple, comfortable and sequin-free, the casual day dress is a dress you can throw on before heading to the shops along with your Converse shoes or wear to the beach over your bikini with a pair of Havaianas. Flattering, easy and cute.

Nunui Patchwork Dress | Vanishing Elephant Denim Pinafore Dress | Tigerlily Tuileries Mu Mu Dress

The shift dress

ShiftDress-inspo

This one’s a little more versatile – worn with your boots or Vans during the day or dressed up with a pair of heels and a clutch bag in the evening. With straight lines and a loose fit, the shift dress shape is flattering and an all-round winner!

The skater skirt dress

SkaterDress-inspo

This style hugs and accentuates the waist line and elongates and slims the legs, and is perfect for that night out or special event.

The bodycon dress

BodyconDresses-inspo

Tight, slim and daring, the bodycon dress is a number reserved for after-dark. With a tight and figure-hugging fit, wear this dress with a pair of heels and a confident attitude!

The midi-length dress

MidiDress-inspo

This length is trending hard, bringing a new level of sophistication to the traditional bodycon dress. This shape flattering length generally sits a couple of inches below the knees and acentuates the curve of your hips.

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!

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.

Women’s Trend || Jackets and Knits

Winter is a time for being comfortable, relaxed and cosy around a fire. This season, comfy can be fashionable as knits and jackets are becoming more and more modern and stylish, to either wear at home or out.

Trending are the natural colours, the navy’s and the stripes. Knits are an easy throw over or can be worn as a long sleeved top. The ladies are getting a much more diverse range of knits and jackets to accompany their street style. Pairing your favourite knit with a pair of boyfriend jeans will give you a good look that will last all winter long.

Jackets are the perfect feature to your outfit. They will keep you cosy and warm while also creating and giving you a unique style to flaunt throughout the long winter season. Jackets will be your best friend when it comes to your Friday and Saturday nights when being accompanied on that romantic dinner.
