Rojada: Simple & Smart Plus-SIze Wear at Citystars

For many
women, shopping is one of life’s most pleasant experiences. It’s the next best
thing after indulging in a calorie-heavy chocolate bar. And when it’s shopping
for office-appropriate clothes, it takes the edge off the guilt.

Almost every
mall in Cairo has a Rojada branch. The local brand has been making quite a
name for itself in Egypt over the past decades. Catering to the basic
fashion needs of the average Egyptian woman, Rojada offers a full range of
office-appropriate clothes at moderate prices.

Citystars branch is located on the third floor of Phase 1. The shop’s interior
is spacious, allowing shoppers to move comfortably and take their time sifting
through the racks. The sales attendants are not overly attentive and mind their
own business until you approach them yourself. They always seem to be busy and swamped
with work, even if you’re the only customer in the shop.

Rojada has
an Egyptian flair to it. This is not only reflected in the designs, or the
moderate prices; but also in the fact that many of the items on offer are
available in large sizes.

Rojada might not offer the best on the market. But given its moderate prices
and the year-long availability of its business attire, shopping at Rojada
becomes a necessity.

Rojada might not stock the latest trends and the most fashionable items like
its international counterparts, Rojada’s clothes were specifically designed to
complement the Egyptian figure.

Most of
Rojada’s items are manufactured in Egypt. The shop carries basic blazers in
neutral colours and different designs with an average starting price of 250LE. You
can also find formal trousers and basic cut jeans starting at 150LE. Basic t-shirts
with floral patterns start at 69LE.

Rojada also stocks
an extensive selection of skirts. Ankle-length layered skirts are available in
neutral and basic colours and start at 179LE. A beige maxi skirt was originally
priced at 189LE, but sells for 159LE during the sales. You can also find a variety
of pencil skirts starting at 150LE.

The shop
also offers summer-friendly tunics in a variety of colours and designs, with
prices starting at 160LE and reaching 300LE. However, finding the right
size might be a bit of a problem if you’re on the petite side.

Rojada might not be your first shopping destination when you’re on the lookout
for a fashionable outfit, it is definitely a worthy option when it comes to
basic wallet-friendly work clothes.
