If you’re looking for a bit of retail therapy, Oxford has some real gems. Along with all the usual high street suspects, the city is also home to a handful of independent boutiques stocking cool labels and fashion to suit all kinds of styles and budgets. Here are some of the best.


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!

For fashion that will make you stand out for the crowd, pay Rainbow and Spoon a visit. Stocking a creative and colourful mix of original daywear, party fashion, contemporary jewellery and unique accessories, you won’t find these designs on the high street. The best bit? Nothing here will break the bank!

Walters of Oxford

Something of an Oxford institution, Walters of Oxford has been supplying University graduation gowns for over 150 years, but it’s also the place to go for classic menswear. 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.
