Staying Fashionable in winters can sometimes prove to be an intimidating challenge. We all aim to stay fashionable inside the warm office with radiators on and outside with chilly winter weather. Sweaters aren’t the only essential that will keep you warm. You need more elements like scarves, caps, sunglasses, etc.
Putting up an outfit for a day out in winter requires strategic planning. The dilemma behind what to layer and what not to is never-ending. There exist people who ain’t fashion bloggers and hence don’t know how to style one jacket in 7-different ways.
I am might a part of that herd. What seems easy for me is to buy a new collection every season and donate the old ones to the needy.
Yay! Yay! We all 20-somethings tend to be broke all the time (me as well). So here is a list of my go-to Budget Shopping Places in Chandigarh for Winter clothes, which will keep up your fashion game to the point as well.
