5 under Rs 5000: summer dresses by Indian designers who are on fleek!


It’s no secret that it is hot as hell up in here.


Jeans are not going to cut it, and we are still contemplating whether we want to let the 90s ‘Jorts’ back into our lives. But, dresses: ain’t nothing wrong with dresses, especially when they come in pretty colours and even lovelier prices.

Here’s five dresses under Rs 5000 from brands that all the fashion insiders are drooling over these days:

1. IMAGINE THE GRASS IS WHITE by Runaway Bicycle 

Simple, structured, can be worn as a dress or a tunic, at dinner, lunch or just throw it on for a Sunday lounge sesh: That’s the beauty of every Runaway Bicycle creation. You’d better hurry though, these get sold out faster than you can say.. Runaway!

Price: Rs 3500

2. TENNIS SHIRT DRESS by Olio Stories 

We confess to a fascination with this brand, and the — not twins — but two friends who “definitely do feel like they’re slowly becoming one person” who run it. They’re cute and so are their creations. All their clothes come with a side of quirky and some – dare we hope – have a Sarah Lucas influence? (Olio Fried Egg dress, we’re talking to you.)

Price: Rs 3300

3 BLACK MESH DRESS by Anita Dongre’s Grassroot

NGL, we’ve been salivating over everything Anita Dongre since we were babes. Avantika bought her first Dongre dress on Juhu road in the designer’s first shop back in 2003/4. The Grassroot collection is gorgeous, and worth a couple of extra bucks if you can spare them, and (yay!) it does go on sale.

Price: Rs 3995




While everyone’s wearing their white shirt dresses, you can add a pastel twist to your look. This mint-green cutie is pure cotton and the subtle embroidery takes this ensemble from day to night effortlessly.

Price: Rs 4400




In love with everything Anomaly, actually, but this navy dress will do. It can also double as a summer jacket and would also look fabulous with some wide-legged pants. Take this one with you everywhere: it’s perfect for work and for that holiday by the beach you’ve been day-dreaming about.


Get yourself a nice summer dress and ditch the lumberjack jeans/plaid look for a bit. Why? Because it’s summer time and the only way to get environmentally-friendly air-conditioning is the Twirl:
