In the fast fashion industry, the Sabyasachi X H&M line is all the rage! Especially since it was sold out in hours. Hours! Insane, right?



People were eager to point out that the collection was expensive as soon as it was released. From the accessories to the basic saree, we know they definitely shouldn't cost that much. Guess what? We found some cheaper alternatives to these clothes that are both budget-friendly and similar in appearance.


1. The Tie-Belt Shorts 


There are times when you want to have that extra something in your outfit that allows you to look attractive in a natural way. In this case, a pair of nifty tie belt shorts may be able to help. While searching for the same, you must have come across the Sabyasachi X H&M shorts in stretch cotton twill. It comes with a detachable tie belt, wide pleats at the front for volume, and a zip fly with a concealed hook-and-eye fastener. But ₹2,999 is prohibitive. However, we have the perfect alternative here.

2. Patterned Chiffon Trousers


For those of you who are only wearing jeans all the time, you are missing out on a lot of fun. For a change, you can try out chiffon trousers — and what looks prettier than patterned ones? Look at these long, wide trousers in softly draping, patterned chiffon crêpe by Sabyasachi X H&M. But, not everyone can afford to shell out ₹3,499 for a trouser. So, for those folks, here's the best alternative.

Check out these relaxed-fit palazzo trousers by AKS. This staple from Ajio comes in a block print. For a charming girl-next-door look, you can wear a white oversized t-shirt with white sneakers, and you are ready to go.

3. Bell-Shaped Skirt


As the name states, a bell-shaped skirt sits tight at the waist, flares from the waistline, and then falls straight to the knees just like a bell. You should look at this piece by Sabyasachi that has a quilted waistband with an internal drawstring, a concealed zip on one side, and discreet pockets in the side seams. But, you won't likely pay ₹9,999 for it. I know, I wouldn't. So, here is an alternative to it which I'm sure you'll love.

Price @ INR 1,595


You can take your casual edits up a notch with this beige skirt from Forever New. Crafted in viscose, this beige skirt features a high-rise waist, relaxed, flowy silhouette, tiered maxi length design, and front split detail with gold-tone buttons. Style it with a cami top and gladiator flats for an easy-breezy look.

4. Lace Bra Top


Lace tops are the most popular trend these days. And, for the same reason, the Sabyasachi X H&M collection also needed to have one. Voila, this fully lined bra top in a cotton weave with inset lace trims and pin-tucks looks stylish. Shaped cups, covered buttons down the front, and lace-embellished shoulder straps make it so trendy. But is it really worth ₹2,600? For a lot, it's not. So, here is a better alternative to it.

Two words for this piece: flirty and romantic. I particularly love the plunging neckline of the lace bra top. You can sport it with baggy denim and white sneakers to look like the diva that you are.

5. Red / Cream Saree


Westernisation has surely made us look more comfy, but traditional attire will continue to stay a step ahead. And, a Sabyasachi collection without one is not possible at all. But, will you pay ₹9,999 for this simple chiffon saree? Especially when there are such amazing alternatives?
