The STITCH: Summer Sunnies!

As spring comes to an end and we enter into summer (the greatest season of the year, if you ask me!), we start to focus on one of my personal favorite accessories; sunglasses. This year the sunnie trends are big and with music festivals and outdoor activities in full swing you can be sure that you will see a lot of these great spectacles. This season Active Ride Shop has all of your favorite sunnie trends with a selection from brands like Sabre, Ray Ban, Ashbury, Electric, and Spy, to name a few. Here are two styles that I’m totally loving this season:

The Cat-Eye
This lens is a great way to show your feminine side and is reminiscent of the 60’s when women sported these with pencil skirts and red lips. The SABRE Love Doll is the perfect pair if you’re looking for a good cat-eye.  Plus, it comes in black and tortoise, so you can have a pair to go with every outfit!

The Sabre "Lovedoll" is already a member in my sunglass collection!

The Wayfarer
The wayfarer style is as classic as it get’s.  Ray Ban has offered this iconic frame since the 50’s and it hasn’t lost it’s appeal yet.  It the perfect style and looks great on everybody! Available in black gloss and tortoise – it doesn’t get much more classic than that!!  And, so many other brands are getting on the trend that you can find even more styles and colors from brands like SABRE, ACTIVE, Ashbury, and Oakley.

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.
