These were some of my personal favorites, and can be seen in Billabong’s “Designers Closet” collection. Versatile party dresses, trendy coats, and of course a surf/skate feel that is true to Billabong’s roots, are very apparent in their collections for Fall and Holiday.

The STITCH: Women’s 2012 Swim

Spring is here and that means it’s bikini season! Women’s swimwear has started to arrive in our stores and there are so many to choose from that I can’t decide! Volcom, B.Swim, O’Neill, and Billabong all have a bunch of different tops and bottoms to choose from so you can mix and match and have fun.

If you’re looking for color that going to pop, B.Swim is the brand for you. They offer a lot of different cuts, fabrics, and patterns to choose from with their Pop Rocks Collection and their solids. Kate Upton was spotted wearing a bikini from the Pop Rocks Collection in this year’s Sports Illustrated! B.Swim has great solids like the sassy blue Viking Bikini with great back detail and an amazing push up and the Canary Bikini in a bright yellow paired with their cheeky cupcake bottom.

O’Neill’s bikinis are feminine so you look cute and chic on the beach. The O’Neill Penny Ruffle Top is the perfect bikini top that goes great with a cute pair of shorts.

The STITCH: Fall Trends – 4 Ways to Wear a Dress

picture-1

Now that Fall has arrived, it’s time to begin shopping and dressing for the cool weather ahead. This has always been a weird transition for me. I get so comfortable wearing jean shorts, tanks and summer dresses, that I’m never ready to admit summer’s over by bundling up in an oversized sweater with boots. So, instead of going full force into the Fall season, I like to ease my way into it by pairing summer items with fall items. Here’s 4 ways to wear a summer dress from Active in the fall season!

*All product featured is available at any Active location!

Trends this spring: Almost anything goes!

Have you noticed how many different styles are making their way back into fashion? For a while it seemed like when a new trend began, the others made their way out. Not true anymore my friends!

The Bohemian look, inspired by the likes of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, is still going strong with Native American style prints, beaded belts and handbags, tie-dye and bold colors. The classics reminiscent from the 50’s like delicate floral pieces and wedge sandals are showing up everywhere. While the 80’s have continued to make a statement with bright colors, geometric prints, and rock inspired fashion. Not to mention, the early 90’s have made it back onto the radar with cut-off denim and Dr. Martens!

Ladies we have entered a time where almost anything goes! It’s refreshing, and exciting! I browsed some of our favorite brands like Billabong, Ezekiel, Insight, and RVCA, to see what looks they’re coming up with. These are some of my favorites; I hope they inspire you as well!
