Opened in 2000, Vanilla has become one of the go-to destinations for stylish Oxonians. Stocking a fantastic range of small designer labels, the boutique offers a chic choice for women who are after something a little bit special compared to the usual high street chains. With a colourful selection of clothing, accessories, homeware and toiletries, we dare you to try and leave empty handed!

Located in Oxford’s historic covered market, Fresh is an independent boutique offering stylish fashion to women of all ages. It’s the place to head for pretty, patterned dresses (most are available in sizes 6-18) and delicate jewellery, with a bit of personality.

Rainbow and Spoon

For fashion that will make you stand out for the crowd, pay Rainbow and Spoon a visit.

Nothing here will break the bank!

There’s a staggering selection of quality suits, shirts, ties and shoes, as well as more casual pieces on offer. There’s even a walk-in barber shop on site for last-minute cuts.
