The Cult Brand About to Blow Up

It’s a good day to be a fashion lover. Thanks mostly to Instagram, the options for covetable pieces are boundless (and won’t blow your rent money / child’s college tuition).

The naysayer might even go so far as to claim there are “too many” choices. It can seem like a new brand it popping up on your feed on the daily! But there are a few undeniable leaders of the pack who’ve already garnered a cult following and are set to flood your #ootd search in 2018.

These are the It brands you need to know to look in-the-know head-to-toe in 2018.

When did Australia become such a fashion capital? CMEO Collective is just one of the seemingly dozens of on-point brands coming out of the sunny Down Under. Their designs are truly standout — they’re not afraid to play with color and pattern, and their silhouettes strike that precise balance between sophisticated and sexy.

Every aspect of their bags is custom and made in the USA, and they are guaranteed to be the most customizable purse / gym bag / clutch you’ve ever owned.
