TIPS:

If you ain’t brand conscious then raid Sarojini Nagar, Janpath, and Karol Bagh and trust us you won’t regret doing so. Everything over there is really (Like really) cheap. You can even get branded stuff and factory seconds for just Rs 200/- . Now the good thing is that even if you buy clothes you probably would never wear, you will at least not end up regretting it.

  1. Follow fashion accounts on every other social media so that you know what to buy and what not to buy.
  2. Take your time while shopping, and never shop in a hurry. Never buy too many things at once. Once you see something you really like pick it up even if you are not on a shopping trip. You will probably end up buying the wrong stuff  shopping  a rush and always buy the best when you are in a relaxed mode. Always try on clothes before buying them.
  3. If you are totally broke, this is where DIY comes to you rescue! So take out all those clothes that you don’t wear anymore (you can even take your mom’s or sister’s stuff) and create your own fashion. The possibilities are just endless. So just go out and create a new wardrobe bit by bit this spring !
