Ladies, purple is a beautiful colour to wear on a date with someone you’ve just met as it is considered to be romantic, elegant and inspiring. It also indicates success and royalty - trust us, your man will acknowledge the successful independent and strong woman that you are. He knows you ain’t the messing around kind of girl.

If you’re an unapologetic experimenter with conventions and structure, we urge you to wear orange on a first date. Orange is bright, bubbly and full of life. You will definitely elicit such warmth and radiance with this that your guy will probably go gaga over you. This KOOVS Kimono Sleeve Wrap Dress (Rs 1,049) is perfect for a coffee date with bae.

6. Green

Green stands for positivity, growth and good energy. Flaunt this colour on a first date and believe us, your dreamboat will see you for the calm, optimistic and beautiful person that you are inside-out. What better way to demonstrate your composed mind than this FabAlley Women Green Solid Ruffled Off-Shoulder Playsuit (Rs 975) from Myntra.

7. Pink

Pink is romantic, flirty and feminine but don’t get too decked up in pink as your boo-to-be might end up not taking you seriously! Stick to one layer of pink clothing or a subtle shade of pink and you’re sorted. This Sassafras Pink Solid Blouse (Rs 600) from Myntra is an absolute steal.
