Winter Loot'18: The Rajouri Garden Edition
New season, old wardrobe, no clothes? While your cupboard might be packed every inch, there’s always scope for that new cosy sweater or that sexy bomber jacket, and of course, there’s always room for denim! In times like these, there ain’t no better place to shop than at the precious flea markets of Delhi. Team TSS made a trip to the busy market of Rajouri Garden to see what they have this season, and well, we can’t say we were disappointed. Read on to see what you can shop here.
Note: The prices mentioned are those quoted by the shopkeepers. Your bargaining skills will count here.
Our first stop was a wholesale and retail flea stall called, Pari Collection. Right next to Atul Chaat, this stall has some very cool jackets. From a variety of denim jackets to warm long overcoats and snazzy short ones. We particularly this beige military style jacket. This one was priced at Rs.1,000.
While a sleeveless denim jacket isn’t exactly a winter pick, its perfect to add that edge to a mundane sweater. This short jacket from Pari Collection was for Rs.700.
Don’t Sweat for that Sweater
The stall had a full rack of the coziest sweaters priced at a flat Rs.500. Warm, fuzzy and in the brightest colours.
No Room for Boring
Our next stop was a stall called, ‘Buttercup’. This one is right opposite ‘Shades’ and has the cutest collection of sweaters, and the jazziest one for jackets. This cutesy pom-pom sweater, priced at Rs.1,200 was our absolute favourite. It’s perfect for those lazy weekend coffee and movie dates.
Plain is Passe
Buttercup’s collection of denim jackets was anything but regular. From embroidered flowers to glitzy stones and edgy studs and rivets, there’s a denim jacket to suit every mood. These are priced between Rs.1,000-Rs.1,600.
If denim isn’t your pick, check out their collection of bomber jackets. They’re bold, bling and everything in! Pair these with a simple, solid skirt or with your favourite denim jeans and you’ve got yourself an effortlessly stylish outfit. Shop these jackets for Rs. 1,500.
Western Fashion at H-28 in the market has some styles that go beyond the ordinary winter jackets. We loved their chic bohemian jackets. This one with an Aztec print, lined with pompoms was priced at Rs. 650. Another blue jacket with embroidered sleeves and a self-print was priced the same.
If you’re looking for sweatshirts that can be worn outside the gym, grab hold of this sequinned version priced at Rs. 600.
A Dash of Spring in Winter
Florals for the win, always! This floral embroidered sweater from Just She, priced at Rs.500 is perfect to go with a flowy midi skirt and boots.
Leather Boots to Love
Our last stop was Shoe Wave, a newly opened store in Rajouri Garden that sells, genuine leather shoes that are literally a steal! We scored a pair of biker boots for Rs.2,000, pointed, high heel boots for Rs.1,800 and a solid pair of knee length boots for just Rs.2,700! The store also has a branch in Lajpat Nagar that has been around for 16 years.
