LATELY I’M LOVING | Clothing Brands You Need to Know

Whassssup, beebs?

I wanted to drop in & chat about a few new-to-me brands that I’ve discovered on Instagram as of late. I’m all for a solid shopping spree at Urban Outfitters, Free People, Nordstrom, & the like, but there’s something about a smaller fashion-forward clothing company that just makes me NEED to buy absolutely everything.

As a style blogger, I spend a lot of time on Instagram hoping to stumble upon unique clothing brands. I have found a number of smaller clothing brands ( in comparison to the large corporate companies we all know ) that have made me straight-up DROOL at my phone.

From intricate designs to well-curated vintage selections, here are a few of my favorites at the moment:

Clothing Brands You Need to Know

Ixiah ( @ixiah_the label )
I discovered this boho-goddess label through style muse @WeWoreWhat ( what else is new ) a few months ago. The product is a little pricey, but their designs give me LIFE. You get what you pay for.

I’m picturing one of their flowing maxis or beachy sets in the most perfect Bahamian beach sunset setting.

My favorites are the Outlaw beaded skirt + bandeau set & the Forever dress in white.

Sofia the Label ( @sofia.thelabel )
This feminine brand carries some seriously beautiful silhouettes. I love that the clothing is beautiful AND it compliments the body so incredibly well. I’m also into the colors they choose to make their clothing in. I’m all for feminine neutrals with a pop of red here and there.

Again, this brand doesn’t necessarily sell affordable clothing, but consider this a place to shop for an occasion like a bridal shower, birthday, or bachelorette party. If you’re celebrating something soon, I would definitely check this brand out.

I’m obsessed with the Rosé dress & the Tie Bra top in pink or red ( on sale right now! ).

Sisters the Label ( @sistersthelabel )
I’ve been lucky enough to have been gifted a silky beauty from Sisters the Label, an Aussie brand that makes the prettiest little slip dresses! My particular dress ( the one featured in the image for this post ) is one of my favorites, because I haven’t seen many slip dresses quite like it.

I love the floral detailing. Yet again, this brand is a bit pricey, so I would consider shopping the site for an occasion OR a staple silk dress to add to your closet ( because you’ll wear & re-wear a lot, trust me ).

I dress mini dress up with heels or dress it down with sneakers. It truly is so versatile.

I’m also REALLY loving the same slip I have but in RED, the Venetian Belted slip, the Dove Bows mini dress, the Florence wrap gown, & the Night Nymph gown. I honestly dig so many products on their site, so I recommend browsing through all of their fit & color options.


I Am Gia the Label ( @i.am.gia.thelabel )
If you haven’t heard about I Am Gia at this point, you must literally be living under a rock. Or you’re a person who isn’t as obsessed with influencers/instagram models as I am ( love creepin’ on all the beautiful, stylish girls I follow ).

I had to add this brand to the round-up because I want to talk about how AFFORDABLE & BADASS I Am Gia is. Their elevated, fashion-forward clothing fits like a dream & won’t break the bank ( there are a few pricier options, but mostly everything is realistically-priced ). I’m so impressed, honestly.

If you’re looking for sexy, comfortable, & swaggggy going-out clothing, I’d recommend starting here. I find that all the faux leather REALLY sucks you in & makes you look good without being uncomfortable, which is always a plus for night-out clothing.

I’m loving so much from I Am Gia, but some of my top favorites are the Winonna Pant, Ain Bodysuit ( just picked this one up! ), & the Jagger Skirt.

Vetiver Collection ( @thevetivercollection )
I have to give my girl Kristen the props she deserves for introducing me to this brand. I know they sell through to large retailers, but the brand is relatively new to me, so I’m adding it to this list.

Vetiver Collection is a vintage-inspired clothing line with feminine silhouettes, unique styles, & fun prints. It’s such a summer-y situation.

This is another one that is a little more expensive than I usually prefer when it comes to everyday clothes, but the quality of their product allows you to wear & re-wear. If you’re looking for a cute beach-inspired daytime outfit, take a look at Vetiver Collection.

I’m into the Rockaway Zig Zag Jumpsuit, the Patti Shirt Dress, & the Patti Jumpsuit.

Bamba Swim ( @bambaswim )
Bamba is yet another Australian brand that has been ALL OVER Instagram lately. Not only does this brand’s imagery INSPIRE ME to no end, the swimsuits & clothing they make INSPIRE ME to buy absolutely everything.

Their film series IS absolutely everything, by the way.

I’m all about their classic Vino top + bottoms in all the colors they make it in ( seriously want them all ), the Cozy one piece ( that RED, tho ), & the Alpha top + bottoms.

Bamba swim is worth the instagram follow, too. Trust me.

Lambert Store ( @lambertstore )
I can dig a solid vintage &/or vintage-inspired online boutique, which is why I find myself returning the Lambert Store so often. I also really enjoy following this brand on instagram.

This celeb-worthy brand is absolutely killing it, & I’m all about supporting a unique brand like this.

Lambert Store ( at least appears to be ) well-curated, so you don’t have to sift through lots of product to find something great. I’ll narrow down a few of my favorites selects for y’all, just because it’s fun: I’m into the Crop Moto Tee, the Desert Crop Jacket, & the Small Orb Hoops.

I Am Koko LA ( @iamkoko.la )
I Am Koko is another great vintage & vintage-inspired online boutique that I find myself returning to consistently. I’ve purchased a reworked LA Rams sweatshirt & a Harley Davidson crop tank from I Am Koko, and I’m more than pleased with both of my purchases.

Theres something about their old-school-style product that makes me feel LEGIT. Also, it’s super affordable.

I just shopped I Am Koko online, and I have my eye on all of these: the Whole Lotta Hell tank, the Vintage Dolce & Gabbana Remade Tube Top ( I DIE ), the Playboy Jazz Festival Tank, and the Authentic Army Pants.

So which one of these brands is your fav?? Like I said, I love sharing brands that genuinely inspire me to put together outfits that I feel most myself in. This list is a solid place to start, in my opinion, if you’re looking to build a unique, trendy, BOMB wardrobe.

If y’all end up discovering a brand you’re obsessed with on this list or if you end up ordering something from any of the above, don’t forget to snap me a lil’ pic vis Instagram! I LIVE FOR getting DMs from y’all trying out anything I’ve suggested on H+H.

It gives me life.

That’s it for today, friends! Happy shopping, xx
