PICK OF THE WEEK: RIP CURL DIA HODDIE

 g00007wb.jpg

Hot pick of the week! Have you seen our Holiday catalog? If not, you’re missin’ out. Check out this sweet sweatshirt from Rip Curl featured on Page 9. (Also available in our online store.) It’s called the Rip Curl Dia sweatshirt and it’s blowin’ out so you better get it fast!  Although this hoodie just hit our shelves a few weeks ago, it’s already one of the top sellers in the category. With a basic plaid print and faux fur lining, it makes a powerful alliance with pants or cords. But how do you maximize its full potential? Glad you asked. Throw it down with long-sleeve tee, some rinced-wash, faded blue jeans, and a pair of modern desert boots. Simple, but oh-so-hot!

PUFF, PUFF GIVE

RVCA puffer jacket

(Corrie has been an integral part of Swell’s buying team for several years. Each week she’ll be highlighting the styles that are sure to get a fellow paid and la–, well, you know.)

What’s the hottest item in men’s apparel right now? The RVCA Puffer Fleece Jacket, and it’s my #1 pick for the week. Pair it with a white v-neck tee, jeans and a beanie, and you’ll be set! Jackets are a necessity this year. And with the cold weather is creeping up on us; you shouldn’t leave home without one.

STREET STYLE: OUTSIDE LOOKS AND INSIDE FINDS

undefined

Here at Swell, we’ve found that cooking up a hot outfit doesn’t need to cost a load of dough. So weather you’re strutting it on 5th Ave. or hightailing it in 5th gear to your 2nd job, your kit can rock a 10 hands down. We took to the streets to find some tasty duds and recreated the look (adding a dash of beach flavor of course) to show you how to get killer style without sabotaging our surf roots—or your bank account. So save some dolla bills while showing up the girls on the Hills!

This week we cruised the posh promenade of high-end shops at Orange County’s The Shops at Mission Viejo. Sun drenched and dripping with designer labels, there was no lack of chic Southern California style to be had. Our pick of the halls came in a preppy sweater-vested package. Showcasing some of this season’s must-haves, this kit stood out even in the sea of Saks 5th frocks and faux-bleached locks. What really had us offering the coveted cookie-stand prize was the melodious mix of rugged motorcycle boots with an ever so girly, featherweight scarf. And lets not leave out the trimmings; a subtle dash of gold in the form of an effortless cuff and delicate necklace adds the perfect amount of dazzle to this chic and refined look. Diggin’ on this look? Check out the links below and you can be flashing it too!
