Winter Loot’18: The Khan Market Edition
While you’ll get absolutely everything you need in your winter wardrobe at the malls, it’s the pieces you pick on a bargain that you’ll enjoy wearing the most. Continuing our search for the best flea picks this winter (check out our Rajouri Garden market loot here), we made our way to Khan Market. Now, we know you’re wondering why we’d head to one of the most expensive shopping hoods in the city for some bargain shopping, but trust us, if you know how to haggle, you can actually go back with some really cool stuff. Read on to see what we picked up.
Note: The prices mentioned are those quoted by the shopkeepers. Your bargaining skills will count here.
Walk from the parking square at the back of the market to the middle lane, and you’ll find a line of small shops on either side with clothes that are perfect for to take you from day to night. Right here is Modluck, where we found these long suede jackets. With a waterfall front, these are priced at Rs.1,000 and are available in the coolest colours.
Right next to Modluck is Simi’s Cucina. You’ll find the cutest range of winter socks here. Polka dots, stripes, geometric designs, bright colours, faux fur linings and trims, pompoms... the variety is endless. Oh, and they also have cosiest slipper socks. Get these for Rs.450.
Pretty in Pearls
A subtle pink, the softest faux shearling, and pretty pearls all over, this cutesy sweater is perfect for a quiet date night or a coffee with the girls. We found this opposite Simi’s Cucina for Rs. 1,300.
A Blooming Winter
At the same shop, this beautiful floral sweater caught our eye. Pair it with a pair of boot cut jeans by day for that 80’s vibe, and with a pleated skirt by night. This one was a steal for Rs.900.
Giving the Chills the Boot!
Move a little ahead and you’ll find a flea shop to satisfy your shoe addiction. This shop opposite Fab India has a pretty extensive range of boots. This pair of studded, ankle boots priced at Rs.2,000, and these brown knee-length boots for Rs.2,250 was our loot from here. If you’re looking to shop for lil’ ones, this shop has the cutest, tassel uggs for Rs.1,250.
Head to the market and loosen those purse strings (well, just a bit) and let us know what you picked up.
