Women’s clothing boutiques in Calgary’s Inglewood ’hood

Inglewood is Calgary’s oldest neighbourhood, but also one of its hottest arts and shopping destinations. Its historic buildings, foot traffic, restaurants and live music venues give it lots of appeal. This area is also home to some very cool women’s boutiques catering to a wide variety of tastes. Here are some of the neighbourhood’s top clothing shops.

Espy Experience Inc

1009 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0S6

Espy staff are simply honest with the shop’s patrons: this looks good on you, and that doesn’t. This in-store fashion advice even extends to house calls for closet interventions. Carrying dress-casual men’s and women’s clothing brands such as Spain’s Desigual and Britain’s Ted Baker London, Espy also notably carries an edgy selection of over 150 jeans. 

Adorn Boutique

1216A 9 Avenue SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0T1

Carrying pretty yet edgy fashions, Adorn Boutique’s clothing and accessory selection includes threads by international designer labels including Space 46, In Wear and Keepsake. The store’s large and colourful selection of tulle skirts pair well with hip T-shirts that feature fun graphics. This boutique ships out of province. 

Eye On Design

1219 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0S9

Eye On Design’s motto is “dress out loud,” but this doesn’t imply its clothing selection is garish. Rather, the shop carries the latest European fashions that are up-to-the-minute hip without sacrificing comfort. Here, you’ll find chic selections such as vintage-inspired blouses and dresses by 4 Love and Liberty as well as dress-casual sweaters and skirts by Twin Set.

The Livery Shop

1130 10 Avenue SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0W1

The Livery Shop is located in the former livery stable behind the National Hotel building, now home to The Nash restaurant. Featuring a red, barn-like exterior, the artfully earthy store carries casual garments by Camp Brand Good, its own clothing label. These men’s and women’s socks, T-shirts, sweatshirts, toques and more are inspired by the beautiful Rockies, where warmth and comfort are a must. The team also carries a line of handcrafted jewellery constructed with vintage precious metals.

The UnCommons

1325A 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0T2

This carefully curated home decor and designer-curio shop also carries an eclectic array of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. This selection of cool ’n’ casual garb includes patriotic apparel such as comfortable T-shirts and hoodies by the Province of Canada and a laser-woodcut jewellery line from Kelowna-based Ugly Bunny.

Tiffany's Thredz

1213 9th Avenue SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0S9

Long popular with visiting Calgarians, Tiffany’s Thredz in Invermere, British Columbia recently took the logical step of setting up shop in Cowtown. The boutique’s selection of Canadian labels is wide and includes beautiful dresses by Joseph Ribkoff and Frank Lyman handbags. Additional bestselling clothes include soft hemp tees by Lily Aldridge New Velvet and the multi-fabric garments of Boo Radley Australia.
