We've often had a sneaking suspicion that fashion tribes exist across the UK and Ireland.

Our Geordie friends are impossibly glam, our Brightonian friends are typically cool and us Londoners like to think we have our finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest new designers.

So we asked online shopping giant lyst.co.uk for an exclusive insight into the most sought after fashion finds in every city in the UK over the last 12 months.

The results are in, but do they match up to the stereotypes? You decide...
