As the temperature dips, we’re making a dive for layers and layers of soft, warm wool. Presenting our list of sweater stores in Delhi, to keep the chill at bay. Because, as Mom says, beta, sweater pehen lo.
Sweater Stores That Will Keep You Happy & Warm
There’s no denying that north-eastern ladies have great style and with Runway Fashion‘s collection of sweaters and sweatshirts (chic not frumpy), we’re betting you get a piece of that style. Plus? It’s an obscure store so your pick is less likely to be seen on anyone else.
Price: Starting at INR 1,000
Delhi’s favourite, H&M has some great picks for both men and women. Cable knits, over-sized sweaters or feminine ones with just that tinge of metallic sheen? This is where it’s at.
Price: Starting at INR 1,500 (approx.)
Sarojini Nagar Market
If it’s the end of the month but should you need a whole new winter wardrobe, Sarojini Nagar Market is your best bet. They have every kind of sweater you could possibly be looking for, from the thin glittery ones to simple formal ones, to the bulky ones you would otherwise find in the hills. Don’t forget to keep your bargaining game strong: You can score a sweater from anywhere between INR 50 to INR 500.
Price: Starting as low as INR 50
New Sardar Wool Shop
This should be the first place you head to if you’re on a wool hunt. Not only do they keep warm, thick sweaters (these are more the home-knit variety) but also a bunch of woollen decor products, furnishings, and yarn, for the times you want to make your own sweater.
Price: On request
Marks & Spencer
For formal, classic, solid sweaters in mostly neutral colours, look no further than Marks & Spencer. These make for great office wear. And if you’re looking for something more casual, you can, of course, pair them with a pair of washed-out jeans.
Price: Starting at INR 2,000
If you’re a 90s kids, you’ve probably experienced Monte Carlo in all your school days. We checked them out recently and were surprised to see the brand is still thriving.

Price: Starting at INR 1,500
Stripes, solids and the occasional pattern is what Van Heusen is all about. Bookmark them for when you’re looking for formal wear (both men and women).

United Colors of Benetton
From colourful stripes to Christmas jacquard designs, United Colors of Benetton (UCB) has some delightful sweaters on its shelves. They have cotton, woolen, and blended sweaters, and it is a good place to shop for kids' sweaters as well.

If you're looking for basic, cashmere and merino wool sweaters that feel super soft on the skin and keep you warm, then Everlane is the brand for you.
