On a not so fateful evening, the government banned 52 Chinese Apps, Shein being one of them. While we miss Shein and its amazing flash sales, we are more than happy to discover other shopping sites that not only offer a wide variety of trendy womenswear, but also make it affordable and accessible.

Here are our favorite Websites for you:


Another brand that doesn’t need an introduction, or explanation about how it is a perfect substitute for Shein. Curated looks, a variety of great local and foreign brands, great offers and guaranteed authenticity, Myntra gives us no reason to complain. Beauty and personal care are both there, so you can practically put together an entire look.

Another well-known website that offers enough to make you as picky as you want. Womenswear, accessories, bags and jewellery, along with merchandise is exclusively available on Ajio, from popular Indian and international brands. It is enticing to see Ajio’s own product line that includes everything from sarees, stoles, scarves, jeans, footwear, shirts and more. Personally, we love their Indie Picks section, but from their blogs, you can absolutely curate your own look or draw inspiration.
