Planning a shopping spree, but don’t know where to begin? These fashion fairies will come to your rescue
It’s all a blur of tags, trial rooms and prices within a few hours of hitting the shops. And the festive season will be here before you know it. Don’t hang up your shopping bag yet; these fashion influencers have meticulously-curated hauls, tried them on and experienced the return experience, and are here to tell you exactly where to buy what from. Check them out before you head to the mall.
Street’s the place to go
Vidhi Rajput is also a beauty influencer, and her style is street-wise. Her hauls are from the open markets of Hill Road, Colaba Causeway, etc., and if you have any questions about quality and fit of what you find here, she has you covered. She thoroughly tests her buys for a week or so before she makes a video, and is able to testify to the feel of the fabric and its resilience in the wash. She’ll tell you both, the most unique piece available at, say, Fashion Street, and also the best picks from a shop, as well as the sizes available.

Jump on the brand bandwagon
Kritika shops at luxury and budget High Street brands such as Zara, H&M, Charles and Keith, etc., and from activewear brands such as Puma and Reebok. She has been creating haulistic content, mostly concentrated on clothing and accessories, since 2014. She just did a haul in the nine colours of Navratri. Look her up to know what’s new and which item from a specific brand is paisa vasool. Her reviews are unfiltered; if a brand does not deliver on fit, quality or price, she has no hesitation in saying so.

Ethnic is her niche
Hippity-hoppitying from Delhi to London every now and then, Prerna Chhabra is a stylist with a focus on ethnic wear. She covers all kinds of desi looks, be it casual wear, work wear, or the bhaari-bharkam festive and wedding ensembles from affordable designer brands like Kreeva and Bunaai. She also tells you the various ways in which you could style one piece of clothing—she recently did this with kurtis—to suit different occasions. Her personal style is Indo-western fusion, which she curates from brands like Biba and platforms like Ajio.
