It’s safe to say that Australian fashion is definitely having a moment here in the US, and we here at OMJ hope that this is one trend that will be sticking around. Down under style boasts an edgy, ultra-chic aesthetic, with just the right touch of femininity and luxury. And those Aussies somehow manage do it at an oh-so-amazingly affordable price point (in the words of Melissa Gorga — thank you Jesus!). The country-slash-continent has been churning out some pretty fabulous contemporary brands like C/MEO, Keepsake, Misha, and Zimmermann. I’m sure you are wondering how in New Jersey you can emulate that effortlessly-cool Aussie girl style. Surprisingly it’s easier than you think. Here’s the best boutiques and stores in the great Garden State where you can find the hottest Australian designers.

Envy by Melissa GorgaReal Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga loves Australian labels just as much as we do. She stocks her Montclair boutique with beautiful pieces by C/MEO, Keepsake, Misha, and Lovers & Friends. Melissa tells us, “They are really fairly priced and you get great quality, and they are super chic, and they are very up to date.” The queen of snapchat recently rocked a white hot Misha LWD for an appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

During one of my many recent shopping excursions to Envy, I couldn’t help myself, and had to pick up not one, but two Aussie dresses.

Zoe This Princeton landmark always carries the hottest labels, so it’s no surprise that they carry the sophisticated and ultra feminine down under brand Zimmermann.

Bloomingdales The Bloomies stores at The Mall at Short Hills and The Shops at Riverside Hackensack stock an abundance of Bardot, Keepsake,  and RES Denim.

Too cool for pool. (Tap for credits.)
