I still remember when I used to scroll through major western online shopping websites just to see all their collections of workwear. This is around 2-3 years back. I always wondered why no one bothers to create workwear clothing in India. Percentage of working women in India has significantly increased in last couple of wears and all of us need some good shopping places for our wardrobes. Well, I guess some telepathy worked and my concern was transmitted to some cool people. There are some new additions of websites specifically to cater the needs of working women of this age and I could not be any happier that this. Now I do not necessarily need to check out millions of products from the major retail sites to find out one good dress or top for my next work event. In times of need, these websites come handy and seem to have good options for us to choose. So I am putting together a list of these just for you girls. This list is a combination of some well-known and some new kids on the block. Explore these and have fun shopping.
Fablestreet – They are new, but they are straight into business and how. They cleverly put basic collections in the beginning of their journey and since then, have been adding new things to it. Best deal is their trousers. Smart and classic, I must say!
Mango – They had awesome linen collection last year and their dresses and trousers are really good. Try them.
The Label Life – They have some nice collections to pick workwear from. Their recent collections like ‘9-to-9 style file’ and ‘white shirt’ have some good pieces. You may like them.
Zara – Unfortunately this one does not let us shop online, but who does not know this name and their products. Beautiful dresses, tops and trousers, but did your know that Zara has nice suits and blazers. One tip – Know your sizes beforehand and just pick your work suits and blazers during sale days. I got a blue blazer-trouser suit for 4k last season. Total steal!
Brands on major retail websites – Next and Dorothy Perkins – These brands have good pieces if you do want to order from the major retail websites. Check out yourself.
Fabindia – Do I need to say anything? They are classic, earthy and perfect for everyday at office. Apart from their regular ethnic collections, they have started ‘Fabels’ towards more contemporary and they are good! I only wish that their prices were a bit lower.
Jaypore – Awesome collections for ethnic wear. Only issue is they do not have proper filters to explore what you want. You really need to dig into it and I sometimes (often) lose my patience, but nevertheless I like it.
The Loom – Again, it is similar to Jaypore and has cool dresses and kurtas collections. Check out and you will be spoilt for choices here.
Brands on major retail websites – W, Biba, Aurelia – They have some basic kurtas and suit sets for regular day wear. Good deals.
Stylenook – In addition, there is another cool website that ensemble together a packet of five clothing pieces depending on your style preference and they send it to you. You decide your budget and pay the amount for the complete package. It is a total surprise packet when you receive and you are free to pick whatever you like and pay just for that. Rest goes back on return and you get the refund of amount you paid. I loved the idea and it totally feels like a surprise gift bought for self. Thumbs up from me!
So these are few websites that I explored and found awesome other than our ‘always there’ Allen Solly and Van Heusen clothing. I am sure that there will lot more additions to their collections in coming time. So keep an eye on these. Also, share your experience if you have shopped from them. Would love to hear your experience and it will be helpful for other women too.
