There is nothing quite like winters in Delhi. With the fall, officially giving way to the colder months, everyone would be busy scouting for winter essentials to bundle in once the numbing cold sets in.

Who: The Street Lover
Known as the mother of the ‘export surplus’ markets, Sarojini Nagar is your one stop shopping destination for smart bargains. This is the one place you need to be in when you have budgetary constraints and an audacious imagination. Low rung prices for highbrow taste are some of the USPs of this market. However, the market isn’t ideal for those who prefer their shopping in air-conditioned confines and fixed prices.
Style Tip: Stack up on dresses and cardigans from Graffiti lane. Remember not to pay more then Rs 450 for a cardigan and Rs 600 for a jacket. If you have a boot fetish, then Om Boot Store is the place to be. They have all your high street brands – but a lot cheaper. Imagine, getting a pair of calf length boots for just Rs 2,000.
Where: Sarojini Nagar Market, Chanakya Puri
When: Best time to shop there is between 12pm to 4pm, as the streets are less crowded. Avoid weekends.
Who: The Mall Lover
If you are an I-only-wear-Zara type of girl and would not shop on the streets under any circumstance, then the city has a wide range of expansive malls at your disposal. You might get tired of shopping at the end of it, but the list of the malls to explore would go on and on. They house all your favorite high street brands from Mango to Zara – and now H&M too.
