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.
