Remember the first time you heard about Zara? Or stumbled into Topshop? Chic, affordable pieces from across the globe--kind of blew your mind, right? Well, that’s also how we felt when we discovered these five Australian brands. With fresh and (dare we say?) budget-friendly styles and U.S. shipping, these lines are about to become household names.

MaurieandEve
Oracle Fox

Maurie And Eve

The clothing line worn by bloggers around the world. This Sydney-based label looks surprisingly high-end at a fairly reasonable price point. (Dresses don?t cost more than $200.) We love the Altuzarra-esque envelope skirt ($136), and we think we've found our go-to wedding attire in this column dress ($129).

Hobes

Hobes

As soon as we slipped on a pair of these velvety-soft shoes ($130), which happen to be unisex, we knew it was love. Hobes, started by Melbourne native Georgia Hobart, is a line of waterproof, lightweight (less than a pound) footwear designed to stand up to any environment. (They make amazing travel companions.)

 

ElkAustralia

Elk

If ridiculously comfortable basics are what you’re after, look no further than Elk. It's stocked with breezy pieces like this Tencel shirtdress ($155) and well-made footwear á la these leather oxfords ($189); this is the type of clothing you’ll want to live in all year long.

Blessed

Bless’ed Are The Meek

We first spotted this line on Chronicles of Her blogger Carmen Hamilton and immediately felt the need to know more. Since then, we frequent the site (to the designer's other label, BC) for all things trend-driven, like this little matching set (starting at $130). P.S. It’s winter in Australia, so don’t be surprised to see coats front and center.

FindersKeepers
Oh So Glam

Finders Keepers

All about effortlessly cool prints and exaggerated shapes, Finders Keepers was founded by the same company that owns the ever-popular Cameo label. Lucky for us, Nasty Gal and ASOS often sell its clothing so we can snag this party-ready jumpsuit ($161) with guaranteed free shipping.
