You know what’s even better than buying cool shit? Buying cool shit that helps fellow women.

There's no better feeling out there than doing something that helps support your fellow women. Whether it's standing up for your co-worker in a conference meeting, or helping your mate who's feeling down and out, girls helping helps makes the world go round.

And it's just an added little bonus when you get something cute AF out of it.

This International Women's Day — where we're celebrating women around the world, and spotlighting issues that affect us, so we can work towards a solution — several fashion brands from Australia (and beyond) are doing some really incredible stuff to support the cause.

Whether it's offering a discount, donating a part (or all) of their profits to charities that benefit women, these incredible brands worth looking at this 8th of March.

Shop on, ladies.

Wittner Shoes

Who doesn't love a new pair of shoes? Especially if those shoes are doing amazing things to support women. From today, Wittner is donating $2 from every shoe that is sold to charity, Fitted For Work, a not-for-profit helps women find their place in the workforce, and provides aid to those in need.

Missguided

To celebrate IWD, Missguided launched a four-piece collection named #makeHERstory. All the profits from the pieces sold will be donated to foundation, Girls Out Loud, which helps girls with self-esteem and empowerment. Hell yeah.

For this year's IWD, Feed have curated a collection of four ultra-cute tote, each designed by a different female designer. The sale of every bag will provide 10 school meals to kids in need, and will donate $1 to a charity, which differ depending on the design you choose. (And, yes, they do international shipping!)
