Our Guide To Buying Summer Dresses This Season

    It’s summer time, and you know what that means? Hot winds, sweat, and lazy lie-ins. Ladies, that’s neither fun nor practical to breeze through summer in tight pants and stuffy outfits. If you’re too lazy to pick up fabric and get clothes stitched,  and feel like shorts don't cut it let yourself breathe through with our list of places you can pick up some dresses for summer. 

    Stay Classy On A Budget

    Classy Rags

    Kalyan nagar, Bangalore

    The name Classy Rags might be an oxymoron, but that’s cause you get classy clothes for the price of rags. No really, prices start at INR 500! Though not a fully on trend, they’re all from big brands. Think Holister and Abercrombie. Maxis, and skater dresses among others, if you’re more modular, they also have tank tops and camis, and plaid. Oh, and if you have a baby girl, this is the jackpot! 

    Get It All Under A Central Roof

    Central

    Bellandur, Bangalore

    There’s a lazy girl in all of us, and we don’t care where the dress comes from as long as it does the job. So if you’re not big on the brand, being exclusive, or splurging, hit up one of the many Central Malls in town. With pretty much everything under the sun you could possibly want to buy all under one roof, go beyond just summer dresses (AND, Levis, Jealous 21 and Honey have great options), and create a party, office, or edgy look with their range.

    Stay Cool With The Summer House

    The name literally has summer in, so you know you’re in good hands when you walk into the store for your summer wardrobe! The Summer House is a slow fashion brand, so expect classic cuts, natural fabric, and long lasting clothes. Shirt dresses, breezy maxis, and knee length shift dresses, all ooze the easy, breezy summer vibe. Prices are on the higher side, but the dresses from here an investment worth making. Plus points for their swimwear.
