Favorite Female Fashion Brands

One of Busbee Style’s main missions is to support other women. An easy way to do that? Shop feminine brands! I share 15 brands that are all founded by women. Plus, some of my favorites… I’ve bought at least one (if not more) of each of these brands and can honestly say I love them!

1) Monica Vinader

I’ve been wearing Monica Vinader pieces for years and absolutely love the jewelry line! I own quite a few of her pieces (see above) and love them all. All of her jewelry is relatively affordable for the quality (think price per wear!), they last for years, and they are the perfect pop of bold jewelry without overwhelming an outfit.

2) Tamara Mellon

Tamara Mellon is a long-time entrepreneur who I find incredibly inspiring. She has reached a level of success that only about 1% of female entrepreneurs ever achieve! For starters, she is the co-founder of the highly successful Jimmy Choo brand. In 2016 she decided to start over… and she started her journey with her eponymous brand, Tamara Mellon. From Dutchess Megan Markle to Kendall and Kylie Jenner, celebrities love Tamara Mellon shoes, and it’s easy to see why. The luxury shoes are impeccable in quality. They are also the perfect blend of style, femininity and sex appeal. The pair of Tamara Mellon shoes I’m wearing above are older, but I’ve linked a few of my favorites below…

3) Staud

This brand has been BLOWN UP in what seems like the past two years. Founded in 2015 by Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto, the brand always has an “it” bag that sells out quickly. Their accessories are always a big hit, but they also have perfect basics with trendy twists. As well as some gorgeous highlights like the dress I’m wearing above. It’s unfortunately sold out, but I’ve linked some more of my favorites from the brand below.

Does anyone remember this dress? Love all the drama this brand has to offer! It was founded in 2018 by former Danish stylists and influencers Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars. They have a lot of 80’s inspired pieces with oversized sleeves, bright colors and voluminous silhouettes… all of which I love! If you need a dress for a special occasion, check out this brand!

Basket bags or straw bags curated by fashion blogger Erin Busbee of BusbeeStyle.com, including Cult Gaia Bag and dupe, round bags, clutches, tote bags and large beach bags, fashion brands owned by women

5) Cult Gaia

Founded in 2012 by Los Angeles-based designer Jasmin Larian, Cult Gaia has been a popular brand for a few years now. The brand was best known for its cool, trendy architectural bamboo handbags like the one I’m wearing in the photo above. But they’ve expanded their designs to include swimwear and really chic resort style clothing.

6) Sensi Studio

If you’re looking for special holiday items or fun summer accessories, Sensi Studio is the place to start! All pieces are made in Ecuador, where designer Stephany Sensi comes from, using traditional basket weaving techniques. 100% production takes place in Ecuador, mostly through the Andean region, and spread across many artisan weaving communities, helping to provide work for the local community. So cool!

7) Lele Sadoughi

Another very nice accessories brand is Lele Sadoughi! The Dallas native’s colorful and fun take on jewelry and accessories adds the perfect, playful pop to any outfit! I have one of her headbands that I don’t have a picture of unfortunately, but I love it! She has tons of headband options, but I’ll be trying her jewelry soon too…

8) Spanx

Sara Blakely is another one of those female entrepreneurs that I really admire and inspire me. She is an incredible businesswoman (billionaire) and has created a brand that makes women feel GREAT! Every woman knows what Spanx is and it is actually a household name.

Cozy Loungewear, Erin Busbee of Busbee wears a black hoodie from Marrow over a white long sleeve t-shirt from Free People, tucked into black Marrow drawstring sweatpants and black Golden Goose sneakers in South Texas, female fashion brands

9) Monrow

Michelle Wenke and Megan George are the designers behind Marrow, a brand known for stylish, comfortable wardrobe items. Their pieces are casual yet luxurious, chic, effortless and stunning in quality! Some of my favorite loungewear is from Marrow because it’s the perfect blend of comfort and style.

10) PE Nation:

PE Nation is a more recent discovery for me. Started in 2016 and co-founded by Pip Edwards, the Australian brand is now an international powerhouse. Their pieces have an edgy-vintage vibe, with graphic prints and stripes. They are also perfect with their cuts. The way the stripes are placed on the leggings also makes them super flattering (ignore the ankle weights in the photo above)!

11) Tory Burch

Tory Burch started its eponymous brand in 2004 and it has grown into a multi-billion dollar company. The preppy, stylish lifestyle brand is best known for chic flats, luxury handbags and must-have accessories. But the brand has clothes, fragrances, swimwear and much more. Tory is also a philanthropist and advocate for women, which is extremely admirable.

Melissa Odabash makes beautiful swimwear inspired by Italian high fashion. All her pieces are made of high quality fabrics and have details that make them different and special. The dress I’m wearing above by Melissa Odabash has a beautiful metallic fabric and the silhouette is so chic!

13) OYE Swimwear

OYE, the Istanbul-based brand founded in 2007 by twin sisters Ayca and Zeynep Sadikoglu, has the chicest, sexy and high-end swimsuits! If you’re going on vacation and want a swimsuit that makes you feel confident, soaked up and safe and sexy, this is the brand! They are a bit pricey, but worth the investment.

If you’re looking for EXTRA sexy swimsuits, Vix swimsuits are the best brand to check out! If I’m looking for a chic triangle bikini with modern details, Vix is ​​my first stop! The brand’s founder and designer, Paula Hermanny, is “inspired by Brazilian culture and makes women feel stronger and more confident.” And powerful and confident is exactly how I feel when I put on one of her bikinis! I’m sharing a few of my favorites below…

Fuzzy Jackets, fashion blogger Erin Busbee of BusbeeStyle.com wears a green faux fur jacket from Apparis with a white Nanushka leather top and jeans in Telluride, CO, female fashion brands

15) Appears

Amelie Brick and Lauren Nouchi are the French female co-founders behind Apparis. After seeing unethical manufacturing processes in the fashion industry, they decided to start Apparis and focus on sustainability, vegan products and cruelty-free jackets. I have one of their faux fur coats and it’s so beautiful, it looks and feels like it’s real! I know we’re heading into spring/summer so many of you won’t be buying coats and jackets. But I still wanted to share this brand because they have a great mission and their pieces are SO good! I’m also linking a few of their new Spring/Summer pieces below.
