I Can't Wait to Shop These 13 New Brands This Summer

For some truly enriching additions to my wardrobe, I look to Instagram to discover niche brands making pieces with love. That sounds cheesy, but it's true. I'm a romantic when it comes to my clothes, and the process of supporting independent designers from all corners of the world perfectly feeds into that. To me, there's nothing better than receiving a new piece in the mail (usually wrapped with care and a note from the designer) directly from the person who made it. I develop a crush on something in my feed, save up a little bit and exercise some patience, and the result is a long-term love affair when it finally arrives.
