It’s been quite sometime since I am into online shopping and I just thought of sharing my shopping experience through various fashion websites other than Myntra and Amazon. These websites are new, offer a great variety of clothes with contemporary silhouettes and modern colours. I also insist on comfortable fashion. I mean, I can not imagine wearing a Gucci gown in summers when 100 litres of sweat is drowning me down. Style to me is what I feel confident and comfortable about. I hardly get time to go to market and I really miss the days of roaming around the local market spending hours on finding that one perfect dress for me. Online shopping websites have sorted it down for me. Today I spend 1/3rd of time into finding the kind of clothes I really want to wear, easily through all those shopping apps installed in my phone. I keep browsing the latest trends, offer,sales, discounts and more at the wee hours of the day (Like when I am in the bathroom?) I will admit I have also been cheated and felt at loss while shopping through various online websites and it is because of that experience that I know today what I want in what size and from where should I buy it. Here I review some of the websites for you in case you plan to buy soon.
Bunaai is a Jaipur based start up and it certainly tops the chart for Indian ethnic wear. If you intend to buy Kurta, salwar suit,lehenga even western wears like coordinated sets,dresses and more BUNAAI is your one stop online shop. They also offer bed linens and nightwears. Though I have never bought one from them you can certainly try. I like to buy all my Salwar suits, tunics or Kurta sets from Bunaai. Reason is simple they are cheap and high on style side. they offer great range of silhouettes; flowy ,edgy frilly and more. I love their anarkali suits. Even lehenga sets are available at very economic prices and yet they are high on style side. But the best thing about Bunaai ? They believe in sustainable fashion. Most their clothes use fabrics like cotton or crepe. Extremely comfortable for summers especially.
Cons: Only cons with Bunaai is they don’t offer easy exchange. Once the product bought can not be returned,only exchanged that too you need to spend on shipping through your own pocket. So be very conscious about your size and choice while buying a cloth piece from there.
I am wearing Yellow suit with huge flowers on the white dupatta from Bunaai.
Ewa Young is truly all about teenage fashion. the kind of fashion which would look great on skinny girl unlike on a woman like me. Though they do offer some tops and skirts which I might wear but their fashion celebrates teen spirits more. You will find bright floral or even cartoon prints on their popular senorita crop top collection. I mostly buy their tops to be used as my blouses along with a saree from EWA YOUNG
The fabric is truly great and designs are contemporary. Only cons is they have very limited stock and shipping might be late. They do have a return policy though but you must go through term and conditions before buying from them.
FAB ALLEY/ Indya
INDYA has some great clothes to offer suiting your modern contemporary taste when it comes to ethnic wears. their high slit tunics are exquisite and come in all sort of designs, colours and fabric like crepe, poly silk georgette and more. I have bought a few high low high slit tunics through my faballey app installed in my phone through indya section. I team them up with high waist jeans or even skirts. They truly look fashionable. I also have not found such suits and tunics at any other website.
Best thing about them is their easy return policy and quick shipping which is advanced as compared to similar online shopping websites.
I am wearing a black mini skirt and a cool blue shirt from Faballey.
Shein truly celebrates modern young fashion. They have great collection of skirts,tees,shoes,leggings and more. They only have western wear collection but if you are looking for party fashion and style straight out of page 3 fashion shein is the website to go to. Though you need to be very conscious about the fabric. though the styles and designs of clothes are truly fashionable,the fabric sometimes might be tacky. Also they dont refund the money rather give you shien credits which you can use to buy another dress. Urbanic is another online shopping website which is again good and just like shein. Though they are better in terms of return and fabric than SHEIN.
I am wearing the polka dot ruffled skirt which is extremely fun from Shein.
If you are a sari lover and looking for some contemporary cotton sarees online. Go for SUTA BOMBAY they also offer some great blouses which I could not have bought because I always find them a little higher on price side but the blouse designs are seriously nice and you must buy their dramatic sleeves blouses for sure. They also promote sustainable fashion and if a young millennial college going girl is looking for a sari to wear in her college seminar she must give it a try. The same goes for women in their 30s just like us who believe in wearing saris more ,more and many more.
