Ladies! Shop Till You Drop At These Boutiques In BTM, And Even Get Your Outfit Customised For Under INR 2,000
Ladies of BTM, if you thought you had to go all the way to Commercial Street to shop for pretty outfits, we have great news for you. From traditional bridal lehengas to Indo-western fusion wear, there are plenty of stores in your area that sell pocket-friendly options, so you can go binge shopping within namma BTM.
Bumi Fashion Studio
Need to get a mirror embroidery blouse stitched last minute or a cocktail gown fitted for the next bachelorette party? Don’t even think about it, head straight to Bumi Fashion Studio! Located on BTM 2nd stage, this studio will customise your clothing to a T. You can get kurtis without lining for INR 500, and basic blouse designs (with lining) will set you back by INR 800. There are plenty of readymade in-house pieces too, with discount rates starting from 10 per cent. They also do alterations and other tailoring work, so you can go there with your dress material and get that beautiful lehenga you saw on Pinterest, made just as you wanted it (on a budget, too!).
LOA De Lady Store
Specialising in Western clothing, this store will catch your eye with its range of options at steal deal prices. We spotted handbags starting from INR 700, sunglasses for INR 350 and shawls from INR 150 onwards. They have lots of clothing options too - from bodycon and wrap dresses to basic cold shoulder and crop tops, and skirts (even semi-formal ones). For men trying to up their fashion game, look no further! They have a separate store attached to the main one, that sells accessories exclusively for men. With belts, shoes, hats, gym bags, dopp kits and watches, we’re sure you’ll find something that’ll make both you and your wallet happy.
Swing by this store on an easy day and check out their pretty collection of clothes, accessories and innerwear. They have both Indian and Western clothing, so you can easily find some basics here to update your wardrobe. From pastel tops, quirky print t-shirts and kurtas with subtle embellishments, there’s no dearth of options to choose from. The only setback though, is that they have single pieces and don’t offer alteration services. As for their accessory collection, they have everything from neck pieces, jhumkas, belts and scarves, so you can always find that little something that will add a touch of glam to your style.
If you’re trying to build a boho-chic wardrobe, we recommend checking out Castillo. The boutique, located just under Drunken Monkey in BTM 2nd stage, had us pleasantly surprised with its warm, cosy decor and large collection when as we walked in. With soft maxi dresses, knit cardigans and sweaters, comfortable tunics, pretty geometric prints, ponchos and jeans, they offer many options to help you nail that casual, free-spirited look. They also have pretty accessories, from hats to trinkets and patterned scarves.
Pretty Chicks Boutique
Looking to get all decked up for a special occasion? Pretty Chicks Boutique will have you covered! Bridal lehengas, western gowns, embroidery blouses - you name it, you get it at this store. They also have readymade lehengas and sarees in rich fabrics like georgette satin, raw silk, pure silk and heavy brocades. We especially loved the Saree-gowns with mermaid cuts and beautiful hand embroidery - they’re simply stunning! Prices start from INR 8,000 which we think is worth it for a quality product.
