It’s that time of year when you must forget about saving, and hit the stores. Why? Because it’s end of season sale time, y’all! If you are planning to revamp your wardrobe, then this is the best time to go forth and shop. If you are not planning to revamp it, then still, feel free to shop. It’s great therapy! From high street clothes brands and top notch shoe stores to department stores and lingerie ones, get your cash, card, cheque or parents, and hit the shops. Then shop till you drop, stop, rest and restart!

While tees, tops and accessories are on sale too, you’ll get the best deal if you pick up jackets, dresses and trousers.
Celebrate the quintessential American brand with up to 50 per cent off on all the merchandise. We’d personally buy out most of the denim jeans, dresses and jackets. The kids section is on sale too, and we’re loving the denim jacket for the little ones.
Charles & Keith
Oh all those pretty shoes are on sale. From the brightly coloured stilettos to the block heel with a hint of shimmer, there’s much to look forward to at this store. We admit that they’re not heavily discounted, as most of them only go up to 20 per cent off, but there’s a small section that is going at a proper 50 per cent off. Make sure to check those out first. Bags and sunglasses too are on sale.
Sexy lingerie, slinky nightwear and even functional bras, La Senza is rather pricey on any other day. But when it’s sale time, nothing like loading up on all things sexy and naughty. We’re loving their offer on knickers (those lovely lace ones!) where you get different deals depending on how many you buy. Most of the bras are on sale up to 50 per cent, or they have buy one and get the other one discounted, so feel free to take a friend and split the bill. What are gal pals for if not to help get discounts at shops, eh? Men, this is also you chance to buy your significant other something she’ll love.
Jack & Jones

Just in case you lose motivation, you see. Currently, they’re at an ‘up to 50 per cent’ discount, so hurry before they run out of sizes. We’ve already stocked up on running shoes that were originally INR 7,999 for just INR 2,500!
Usually a bit too expensive for casual wear, Promod’s collection of tees, shirts and dresses are on a good discount this time around. With racks of clothes starting at just INR 599 upwards, we’re planning to fill up the bags with all sorts of asymmetrical dresses, office shirts and even brunch-worthy skirts.
Call It Spring
Knocking of 40 per cent off the original prices, head here to buy a whole new set of bags, sunglasses and shoes. Ladies, they’ve got some really trendy wedges and ballerinas which you can easily use for daily wear, and lads, their loafers will make sure you’re the talk of the next sundowner.
Our favourite when it comes to buying sunglasses by the dozen (OK, we bought half a dozen only), and bags, this high street store is enticing as always. They’ll welcome you with a big red signboard that says flat 40% discount, and once you read that, naturally you’ll be making a beeline to the shelves. Some of their jewellery is also on sale, but we recommend you stick to sunnies and bags.

Ah, the all-time favourite when it comes to sales, Forever21’s stores always make you feel like buying everything. The store has been divided into price categories and you’ll have to rummage through piles, shelves and racks to find the right merch for you. We spotted jumpsuits, tees, tunics and dresses for just INR 499, though they’re quite summery and maybe not ideal for monsoon. But buy, and wear in 2019! They have a cool collection of boots this time, including a wonderful pair of yellow gumboots to take on the monsoon with. Prices start at just INR 399 for apparel, about INR 499 for shoes and INR 199 for accessories. Go, spend all your money.
Emulating Ed Hardy’s tattoos, his apparel brand too sports trademark rock chic prints and patterns. And if you’re the cool kind who can carry off this edgy look, make sure to hit up a store. Why? Because the brand is usually a tad expensive, but when you can pay for two, and get two free, then surely it’s an investment!

Get your fill of jackets, sweatshirts, polo shirts and shorts at this store, ladies and gents. In their trademark pastel shades, almost the entire store is on a discount of 50 per cent. So you get a new wardrobe, and you don’t quite burn a hole in your pocket.
If you’re up for some quirky shoes, in OTT colours, or with stud on them, Steve Madden must be visited ASAP! It’s not an easy sale, we warn, but if you buy two pairs, you get 40 per cent off. There’s a catch, see, but then again, who buys shoes in singles. One must always buy two pairs of shoes… or so we say!
Marks & Spencer
Our favourite when it comes to loading up on bath and body products, as well as that hind of British fashion, M&S is on discounts up to 50 per cent. Casual wear is the best bet, as is the summer collection (like swimwear and cotton merch). Ladies, if you’re fans of this brands lingerie, then hurry and get shopping. They’ve got buy-one-get-one free offers, and their twin-packs of bras are down from about INR 2,999 to INR 1,999.

Lifestyle, MAX, Shoppers Stop, Pantaloons, Reliance Trends
All these department stores are on a heavy discount too. Some even go up to 60 per cent, but that depends on the in-house brand. We cannot quite say what you should buy because you get everything from shoes and apparel to accessories and home decor, but we will say this: don’t just buy for yourself. The festive season is not too far away, and it’s perfect to stock up on gifts for the fam, and for friends. You’re welcome!
