One of my favorite things about blogging is learning the ins & outs of fashion in different countries. And I don’t mean the famous designer names we all know, but the more intimate cultures within a nation. The types of bloggers, the aesthetics, the smaller brands that represent style in that country. And I must admit, when it comes to minimalist fashion (my personal favorite), the Australians really know their stuff.

As I first began to familiarize myself with the blog world, I started to realize that all my favorite big time bloggers were from down under. Oracle Fox, Modern Legacy, Harper and Harley, Chronicles of Her. To name a few.

And then I started to get a feel for the Australian aesthetic. The black and white Instagram feeds. The cute cafes and coffee obsession. Even the “smaller” bloggers never fail to impress me with their impeccable aesthetic–like Base Colour, Jacquie Alexander, and Twice Blessed.

As my blog grew and I began to work with brands, my favorite collaborations were the ones from smaller Australian labels. Like this piece from Finders Keepers. Or C/MEO Collective, Ellery, and Dion Lee.

I never knew it before, but when it comes to sleek, simple style, Australians take the cake.

To all you bloggers out there, what discoveries have you made  along the way?

    I totally agree with everything you said here – I wrote a blog post a while back about why the Aussies are winning in the style stakes, they always seem so effortlessly stylish don’t they?! Harper and Harley and Oracle Fox are two of my fave blogs too! This outfit is absolutely INCREDIBLE!

    Well this post made me extra proud to be an Australian Blogger :) I think Australians in general have come a long way in appreciating fashion especially in the last decade.

    Ahh yessss! Australians just do it better! The German blogger culture is more about cute styles with a bit of a girly touch to it (lots of pompom sandals this year and even more cute off shoulder blouses than last year) but as I am a lover of clean cuts and a bit of a tomboy style I prefer to get my inspiration from Australian bloggers & Australian Labels!

    Such a beautiful outfit. I love the black fringe detail on this white outfit. So chic! I’ve heard of Finders Keepers as well, but don’t know anything from them. Some of those Aussie labels are really incredible. You look so stylish!

    Gorgeous outfit! I agree, one of my favorite things about blogging and following fashionable people from all over is that I’ve been exposed to so many cool brands that I wouldn’t have heard about otherwise!

    What an interesting observation, come to think of it you’re absolutely right about the general aesthetic of fashion bloggers from Australia! This dress really is stunning; feminine details and yet totally fierce. Gorgeous photography on your blog, by the way, so perfect.

    YES! Australians are taking over the fashion world and I’m loving it. I can’t really seem to pinpoint a specific reason why. . .everyone is so different and has their own sense of style but they’re just killing it right now.

    Also, this look. . .is stunning.

    Girl I couldn’t agree more, the Aussie’s are definitely #winning! I actually visited Australia and spent a day shopping in Sydney about 4-5 years ago and I LOVED it, there were seriously so many stores and brands I had never heard of, it was ridiculous and awesome at the same time. Be sure, I came home with a luggage of brand new clothes! Awesome post!
