Staff Style

When we have endless clothes coming through our doors what do we here at SurfStitch HQ choose to wear? Today I took to the SurfStitch hallways to see what the staff are currently rocking and what winter trends are circulating their radar.

Staff Style: Part 1

Men’s Billabong Watch.

The polls lately have suggested that a bunch of This & That readers are wanting to see more of what goes on in terms of style here at SurfStitch. After all, we do spend all day working with the items displayed on the site, photographing them, styling them, describing them and making the final decision of what goes in our very own shopping carts ( or, often, what we can take out to reduce it a little!)

With such varied taste across the team, it’s always inspiring to see how each individual interprets the pieces and styles them in their own way. So check out what items we’re loving this month and perhaps grab a little inspiration for your next purchase!

Essential 5 Womens Lookbook.

Take a look at our 5 must-have essential items to help ease the winter blues this season. Enjoy the full lookbook here

#1 Ankle Boots

Find the perfect pair to complement your personal style and you’ll wear them all winter long.

#2 Statement Watch

Large, simply and elegant. The arm parties and bracelet stacks are a thing of the past as winter brings a refined and simple approach to embellishing.

#3 Long Sleeve Dresses

You know how they say to only show one asset at a time? Short hemlines and long sleeves are it for winter!

#4 Coloured Denim

This season make sure you add a popping colour to your favourite fit to stay right on trend and get a tonne of wear out of this winter staple.

#5 Cable Knits

A cable knit can be worn with every kind of winter outfit which is why you NEED one (or 5) this season.

Insight Denim 2012 Lookbook.

Urban, edgy and California cool all rolled into a lazy suburban afternoon setting. Insight’s latest lookbook focuses around denim and its many faces and styles. He’s a downtown skater boy who prefers to wear his caps back way round and his cuffs rolled up. She’s the girl who hangs around the guys with her high-waisted jeans and bikini on show cause it’s just too damn hot to put a top on!

The imagery combined with the oh-so-cool clothing had this campaign catching my eye and wanting to mix up my style. These are the noteworthy looks I’m gearing to get involved in.


#1. Swimwear, anytime, any place.

#2. Clash the hell out of those prints.

#3. Make your denim interesting.

#4. Try a base ball cap or fluro colours.

#4 The more wear and tear the better.


#1. Turn that cap around.

#2. Basics are better.

#3. A great denim shirt will get you through anything.

#4. Get those socks out.

Trend Report. Tropical Safari.

The Island Inspired Girl is glamorous, yet cool and casual (and rightly so). Dressed up with the latest tribal accessories or teamed down with delicate sandals, and finished off with her signature red lipstick. You’ll see her on the red carpet, on the runway and donned by celebrities such as Kate Mara.

So ditch those dull, colourless winter clothes, turn up the heat and escape to somewhere warm and fabulous in exotic floral and palm prints. My tip: start with the Jordan Jean by Motel – it’s sure to have you inspired.

Trend. Leggings VS Jeans.

Winter is here and with it a delicious way to keep warm. With their fitting shape, leather look leggings are ideal for working a clean, minimalist silhouette. Dark shades are super sleek and super flattering and are perfect paired with a loose tee or contrasting knit.

A basic tee and some skinny jeans on the other hand, is effortlessly cool. In the last couple of years fashion has gone vibrant when it comes to bottoms…in particular skinny jeans. Are you a fan of this brightly coloured trend, or are you more of a leggings girl?
