Along M.G.road, what else do you do but shop? We found Aaina, a ready-to-wear garments store that’s old school but stocks up on some great dresses, tops and lovely kurtas. Located a few shops away from Maharashtra Store, Aaina with its golden exteriors is not eye-catching at first. Mannequins dressed in heavy bridal lehengas or short denim shorts and a crop top welcome you in.
We head straight to the back, where the store has stocked up on several dresses we could wear to work, casually or at a party. We loved the checked dress with a racer strap running along its sides. It’s great as a 9-to-5 dress that you could also wear for drinks after work. The powder blue dress with pearls and pleats in the front would look cute for brunch or a lunch date. Perhaps, look like sunshine in the bright yellow dress with cross-body straps in the front. All of their dresses start at INR 1,500.
They also have a range of blouses and tops. If you want to look trendy in winters, the cropped, off-shoulder sweater top with some detailing is a great pick. Or for a party, slip into the peach-pink crop top with ruffles on one side. The price range of tops starts at INR 1,200.
There are kurtas to choose from too, with lovely fabrics. The quality seemed great too as did the designs. Most of their kurtas start at INR 1,700 and the more exclusive ones will set you back INR 3,000.
