Love H&M’s Budget-Friendly Collection? These Fashion Brands Too Won't Disappoint
Pretty, delicate blouses, embroidered dresses and trending prints; you'd expect these to go upwards of INR 2,000 but Guntas Madan's apparel is handcrafted and at prices we consider a steal. We're especially into the printed tops that look so very Zara.
Price: Starting at INR 699
Summer dresses are a trend we fully love and so do Instagram fashionistas. Leisure Loom does a ton of those, plus some trendy tops, that are perfect for summer and even to layer up as transitional pieces in between going from your AC-blasting room to the balcony for some fresh air.
Price: Starting at INR 1,290

Speaking of Bridgerton, here's some pearl jewellery inspiration we saw in every episode.
One thing we love about homegrown high fashion brands is how they seem to effortlessly meld western and traditional Indian silhouettes and fabrics to create something unique. KA's apparel checks all those boxes with it being ultra-wearable, affordable and homegrown. We love their ethnic dresses that can easily be worn as maxi dresses or with palazzos for an ethnic look.
Price: Starting at INR 900
We all have that one classic black tote from H&M that's super functional. Old Tree's bags have a special place in our heart (right beside that of an H&M tote) because they're what used to be a store in Sarojini Nagar that's now super popular online. Their affordable leather bags are trendy and high quality, you especially could never go wrong with one of their totes.
Price: Starting at INR 940
Not a big bag person? Check out these functional sling bags.
A designer label that can be worn to work (from home), running errands or just lounging around? It seems like too much to ask from one brand but Araya checks all the boxes. Their casual ethnic wear is minimalist, modern and, depending on how you style it, easy to dress up or down.
Price: Starting at INR 1,365

We've all pretty much agreed we're only going to wear slides and flats now, right? While we love shopping for shoes, we don't love the bills we keep racking up. Kaltheos is a dream find - they've got slides, mules (and even heels for those of you who like to be a little extra), in trendy prints and patterns at awesome prices.
Price: Starting at INR 999
Popular patterns, trending styles and Radhika Apte as the face of your brand, ISU's clothing looks high fashion, feels high fashion, and we love it. From fun prints to quirky slogans and silhouettes we can't get enough of, ISU's a go-to for apparel that's trendy and affordable.
Price: Starting at INR 890
High fashion doesn't always have to be lowkey and, well, dull (to put it not-so-politely.) Fabnest's chic clothing comes in refreshingly bright colours and patterns that we love. From co-ord sets to fun dresses, their modern silhouettes should make their way into your wardrobe ASAP.
Price: Starting at INR 399
