The Victoria Gate shopping centre in the heart of Leeds may have been voted the best in the world, but the city has much more to offer when it comes to hitting the high street. One of the best UK shopping destinations outside London, Leeds has its own Harvey Nichols alongside all the high street stores that you would expect; lining the high street, shopping malls and Victorian arcades. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, step away from the usual high street haunts and check out the very best independent fashion stores for men and women in the city.

Little Pink Wardrobe

Shop, Store

Located in the independent hive of the Corn Exchange, Little Pink Wardrobe is the sister shop to the Little Pink Jewellery Store. Stocking pieces by local designers alongside independent labels from further afield, their carefully curated collection is perfect for when you’re looking for something special for a night out or special occasion. Local designer Jenny Dixon can even customise her pieces to your taste.

The Hip Store


This stylish menswear store has been a favourite of the best dressed men in Leeds for almost thirty years, offering the coolest brands often before they’re stocked anywhere else in the north. Expect to find the likes of Barbour, Levis, Penfield and A.P.C alongside lesser known, but equally trendy brands. Make The Hip Store your first port of call to update your entire wardrobe with everything from leather boots and trainers to denim, t-shirts and knitwear.

Lambert’s Yard


Possibly the coolest shop in Leeds, Lambert’s Yard is much more than your traditional fashion boutique, doubling up as an events space. This achingly hip concept store is located in a previously disused building, championing industrial interiors and worth a visit simply to admire the building itself. One of the most exciting retail spaces outside London, they take pride in stocking designs from a carefully curated collection of emerging talent and design-led brands, alongside hosting a variety of exciting events.



Another stylish menswear store, MKI concentrates predominantly on its own label, alongside highly sought-after brands such as Commes des Garcons and Saint James. The store itself features an all-white interior with statement lighting, providing the perfect blank canvas to display their array of design-led garments. Concentrating on casual wear, the offering includes a staggering array of t-shirts and hoodies alongside seasonal collections including sunglasses, shorts, trainers and outerwear.

Accent Clothing

Shop, Store

One of the longest running independent stores in Leeds, most residents will have at least popped into Accent Clothing for a browse at some point during a shopping spree. Offering clothing and accessories for men, women and children for an array of designers, this is a one-stop shop for updating the wardrobes of your entire family. Collections focus mainly on casualwear flaunting brands such as True Religion, Scotch and Soda, Replay, Barbour, and Samsoe and Samsoe. If you’re in the market for a new pair of jeans, make Accent your first destination for advice from their expert team of sales assistants.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
