If there’s a movie that can encapsulate the spirit of Delhi, it’s 500 Days Of Summer {and we’re not talking about the plot}. As the temperature skyrockets to well over 40 degrees, we can’t help but throw our denims and jeggings into dusty trunks and score ourselves some cool summer shorts in cotton and linen. You can join in the shopping too.

Max Stores comes as a shining ray of light when we’ve exhausted most of the month’s salary. With shorts and shirts starting as low as INR 300, every trip here seems almost like a trip to Disneyland {almost}.

We once scored a pair of uber summery shorts from here—white base with bright yellow lemons and green leaves printed all over, and we’ve been meaning to back and get something similar this summer. Mango’s all about the colours and pretty prints. We like.
