Yay! We Found 3 Budget Shopping Paradises In Chennai For Branded Wear
Tired of staring at the crazy price tag of your favourite high street brands? We have got a quick fix for you. Not one but we found three Chennai retail outlets that have outfits from across our favourite brands, up for grabs, and that too at super affordable prices.
Easy 2 Wear
Easy 2 Wear is a shopping hub for most college goers. They don’t just stop at branded shirts and tops, but also have a big selection of kurtas, accessories and lingerie and innerwear for both men and women. The two storey shop has plenty on offer. Sticking to trends, Easy 2 Wear boasts of a huge collection of Zara, Arrow, Indian Terrain and Louis Phillipe in printed, aztec and boho prints too.
If you’re specifically looking for branded floral shirts and want to sport a tropical look, then Easy 2 Wear has plenty of those as well. What caught our attention apart from their trendy shirts were their kurtas and kurtis. They have kurtis of all colours for girls and their men’s kurtas are truly the find of the day. Available in dark blue, cream, orange, and many other colours, these are comfortable, classy and don’t burn a hole in your pocket!
Price: INR 699 upwards
Located in the streets of Nandanam, is this new store that has some of the best brands on display. Don’t worry shopaholics, these are not seconds and all of their shirts look new (possibly export rejects). Our favourite from their collection is the Super Dry tees — available in a range of colours and sizes. Especially for girls who love them oversized tees, you know where to go now. Ladies, you could also choose from their quirky kurti collection from the desi brand W. We even picked up a Van Heusen dress for as low as INR 500 and it is the perfect outfit for fancy dinners and office gatherings.
Apart from regular fitted shirts, their best collection happens to be their printed shirts. There are stacks of printed shirts for all you boys from brands such as Zara, CK, Tommy Hilfiger and Being Human. The polka dotted shirts, cycles and sailor themed shirts are quirky and worth experimenting with. Also, for those of you looking for a pair of well-fitted pants, you can choose from their Diesel, Jack & Jones and Louis Philipe line. Like we said, they have got the A to Z of brands, covered.
Price: Shirts starting at INR 800, Pants starting at INR 1300
Fast Fashions at Besant Nagar has been a childhood favourite and this shop has some really chic summer dresses, starting at just INR 499. Yes, that’s how much we found a French Connection striped dress for and a linen shirt cost us only INR 399. Apart from plenty of colourful tops and tees for woman from brands such as FCUK and Diesel, they also have a big section for men. Comfy Linens, striped shirts, gym tees and summer shorts by Provogue, Tommy Hilfiger and more are options for men, looking to indulge in a new wardrobe this summer, without having to shell out too much.
Been in the market for more than 18 years now, their quality is something that would make you go back to this tiny yet wonderful store. The store also specialises in jeans for both men and women, and you can pick a pair from brands such as LEE, Wrangler and other brands. Not just that, they have adorable outfits for kids too.
