With summertime heating up, I’ve been dying to update my wardrobe. Fortunately, the Fury Surf Shack has got me covered. With three locations in Key West, there seems to always be something new.
Not only are shades absolutely essential in our line of work on the water, but they’re also serious style staples. When it comes to sunglasses, I say the bigger the better. That’s exactly why I opted for Von Zipper’s Prowler. It’s also what our manager Marius and check-in chica Annabelle recently selected. We were tickled by the coincidence, and the fact that our frames are all different. I’ve got the glossy black ones, Marius’ are a matte pin stripe, and Annabelle’s are tortoise shell. They’re also available at the Surf Shack in white if you’d like to join our cool kids Prowler club (come on, I know you want to!).
Surf wear has caught up with the body-conscious styles that have been all over the fashion mags. I’ve scooped up a denim pencil skirt from Von Zipper and a stretchy mini skirt in a bright pattern from Billabong. Horizontal stripes are also hot. Meredith, a Fury jack-of-all-trades, snagged an adorable Billabong nautical striped, long-sleeved, body-skimming mini that is absolutely to die for! In fact, Billabong is all around hot these days with lots of modern styles in all three of our shops.
Of course, it’s not summertime in Key West without bathing suits, and the Surf Shack is fully stocked. I’ve been drawn to bikinis with unique cuts like criss-cross straps from Roxy and sexy braided straps from Reef.
Whatever you’re looking for in summertime surf apparel, the Surf Shack’s definitely got you covered. Swing by our two locations at the Margaritaville marina and our newest shop at the foot of Duval for your next shopping spree.
