Where are fashion girls to go when they are sick of everything in their closets in addition to all their go-to shopping destinations? Down under, to the land of the Aussies, of course. Australia is a country we often associate with sun, fun, and everything they entail, but what we frequently fail to realize is just how objectively fashionable this place secretly is (to us at least). So much so that you might end up ditching all your favorite go-to retailers once you read up on what is hiding in the distant continent.
To preface this before you read any further, the amount of extremely stylish Aussie brands seemed endless, making choosing the ones to showcase here today particularly difficult, but since we feel like we know you well enough by now, the brands ahead are ones we think you'll draw a liking to. While some of these may ring a bell due to sightings on some of your favorite celebrities, others will be excitingly foreign. From swimwear to ready-to-wear to accessories, get ready to shop the Australian brands fashion girls are already obsessing over and that you soon will be too.
Go on to read all about the Australian brands fashion girls love and to shop our favorite items from each.
