A cult favourite, at Westside, you will find desi outfits like suits, kurtas, palazzos, lehengas, etc along with all kinds of western wear outfits. They've got stuff for both men and women along with accessories like shoes, bags, belts, and wallets.

From regal embroidered kurtas, very elaborate salwar kameez sets, trendy bottoms to blouses and work-wear tunics, Soch has them all. The price range across the store begins at INR 799 and they have a decent collection of bags too that can match the outfits.
Taruni might have been our constant while growing up. But even today, if our plan is to shop for Indian wear without breaking a bank, Taruni is our go-to store. Think of bright floral lehengas, sarees in offbeat colours like mustard yellows, purples, etc. Go here for a budget as well as elaborate ethnic wear shopping.
If you're looking for premium men's clothing that's worth the bucks and proudly made in India, then check out the Indian Terrain store. What we appreciate the most is that they're bringing Khaki back into style through their trousers. This collection has four types of fits to make sure it feels like a second skin and gives the most comfort. After all, it's a timeless classic that every man ought to own. Not just that, you can also shop for shorts and jeans which are great quality and worth the money. They've got sizes as diverse as XXXL which is not that common in other brands, so kudos to that.
Stationery is something we can never ever get enough of! If you agree with us, you have to check out Shraddha Extension (which is quite prominent in Shivaji Nagar) in AS Rao Nagar. This place will greet you with rows of crayons, journals, quirky mugs, cards; just name it and it’s there. They have a bright and eclectic range of file organisers, pouches, rubber stamps, cutesy things amongst many others. This store is decked up in vibrant shades and offers a hand-picked selection of gifts and décor items too. You can easily find a lot of items meant for some specific celebration and festival.
