Fabulous clothes at tiny prices, in a shop stuffed with toys that look like owls. What's not to love? Monki, the sister brand of Swedish label Cheap Monday, opened the doors to its first standalone store in the UK back in 2012 and got a swish makeover in early 2015. Its bonkers flagships across the globe – think Cyberdog meets Ponyo – have been replicated here, with kooky carousel clothes rails and mirrors everywhere. Set over two floors on London's Carnaby Street, Monki shares a double fronted premises with Cheap Monday, but that's where the family resemblance ends – both have separate entrances and entirely separate shop fits. The Monki store houses its entire range of low-priced, high fashion aimed at young women, but bought by all sorts of women if the Time Out office is anything to go by.

What a surprise this shop is. Very reasonably priced (£5-£50)  and brilliant fun designs. My favourite thing about it was that they do really good sizes from a 8-20 (ish) I am a larger lady and I like to look stylish,which is a pretty hard combination to achieve! This shop caters for the trendy girl and with a bit of curve if needs be. Very bright and stand out sort of clothes and also great essentials with slightly edgier cuts .This is high street fashion with an original take. This is the only branch in London,so worth the visit to Carnaby Street.

Young, fun and full of... cheap fashion designed by the people that brought us Cheap Monday (which lives next door). You're not going to find a lot of natural fibres in here, but you will find fashiony designs, great denim, and the odd deceptively expensive looking clutch bag or necklace. Make a beeline for the undies - they're a bargain.
