Godiva Boutique - Edinburgh

For those looking for an alternative to the high street, Godiva Boutique is friendly to visitors and their purses. There’s a wonderful collection of hand-picked vintage, alongside local design talent, so unique pieces abound. The store celebrates fashion without being enslaved by it. Local designers to look out for include jeweller Silk Purse, Sows Ear, power patterns from Rowanjoy, and crazy penguin print silk scarves from Karen Maybon. godivaboutique.co.uk

 

Little Red Vintage - Liverpool

If vintage is your bag (or skirt, or dress for that matter) you’re sure to find something interesting at Little Red Vintage. With a range of trend-led pieces sourced from between the 60s to 90s, it’s ideal for those wanting to jump on today’s vogue for 1990s looks. Abstract prints, folk influences and Paisley prints line the rails. We particularly like the selection of Aztec style jackets and oversized 90s floral shirts. For the daring, they’re long enough to be worn as a dress. Search for Little Red Vintage on Facebook

 

Retro Rehab - Manchester

The guys and gals at Retro Rehab repair and rework all their genuine vintage, so they’re spick and span and ready to wear. If a classic retro silk Burberry scarf for £35 sounds reasonable, you’re going to love the fantastic array of floral print shirts, bonkers multi-coloured dresses and mix of 80s and 90s designer pieces on offer. We spotted a brilliant pair of baggy 80s Giorgio Armani shorts, which teamed with an oversized print shirt would provide an enviable Annie Hall meets Wall Street vibe.

Bo Carter - Leeds

Part of the ethical fashion movement, Bo Carter puts her principles first avoiding leather and fur – preferring to craft her products from synthetic fibres. The completely vegan collection manages to mix this ethical awareness, with forward thinking design to great effect. We like the yellow and black checkerboard jacket with fluffy collar and check out the belted artificial felt coats, perfect for layering up on frosty days. bocarter.co.uk

 

Birds Yard  - Sheffield

Over on Chapel Walk in Sheffield, you’ll find two Birds Yard establishments. Number 50 sells a beautiful selection of high end vintage, while at 44 you’ll find trinkets, beauty products and homeware designed by local creatives. Look out for bear-focused screen prints by Don’t Feed the Bears and wonderful custom dresses by Loula boutique. If you’re in the market for some sparkles, take a peek at Claudia Latini Jewellery, while Lovely Cosmetics will provide the beauty regime. For a proper memento, grab a Sheffield tote bag with designs based on photography by Charlotte Newton. birdsyardsheffield.co.uk

 

Me & Yu - Manchester

Want a T-shirt with a curious illustration of a bearded face with bicycle parts making up his beard? What about a jersey dress featuring a pineapple with eyes? It’s this kind of bonkersness, that gets Me & Yu clothes noticed. And you won’t spend a fortune either, with the most expensive dress just £34. shop-meandyu.co.uk
