May 1st, 2015 | By | No Comments

Itching for a road trip, the boys loaded the sketchy old SWELL van with the newest summer gear to crash test the goods and go absolutely ham ion the 90 mi coastline called Big Sur, Ca. Enjoy the edit, get the gear and stay tuned for 6 more stories this week about the dude cruise going down in the books!

Meet the Boys

Chase Wilson 24, Newport Beach

Highlight of Trip: Driving the Highway 1 around the bends of the Big Sur listening to DJ Pelican. Most enjoyable drive of my life! Unbelievable.
Funny Moment: Watching Gabe play with a half dead Snake! That kid is crazy.
Big Sur in 3 Words: Warm, Populated, Un-sharky

Choice road trip tunes: DJ Pelican… if you know, you know
Favorite Campground in Big Sur:  there’s so many nooks and crannies up there but I’d say Sand dollar state beach was my favorite. (more…)

Festival Style | Stagecoach Outfit Guide SWELL Photo Assistant 's Picks to Get Styled-Out for the "Mane" Stage

April 21st, 2015 | By | 3 Comments

Festival season is still upon us and although Coachella has gone and past we still have a summer full of great music and even better style! Stagecoach may not be as well known for its fashion—but trust me when I say there’s still a “festival look” befitting this awesome country music filled weekend.  Our photo assistant MacKenzie is sharing her 3 must have looks to guide you through this festival season:

Headliner: Tim McGraw: “Someday you’ll be looking back on your life at the memories; this is going to be one of those nights.”

Day 1: My first outfit is an all American girl look. I wanted to stay sweet and southern, while still being boho-chic. A romper is the perfect festival outfit when you are dancing the night away front row to your favorite song. My 3 must haves include flirty florals, statement sunglasses, and of course a pair of good ol’ cowgirl boots.

Celebrity fashion inspiration: Maddie & Tae and Kacey Musgrave’s.

Stagecoach_1_1             Get the Look: SWELL Romper, Statement Necklace and Killer Sunnies.

Headliner: Miranda Lambert

 “Mama’s broken heart.” (more…)
