Looks, intelligence and personality--these are the three basic things most women look into before saying yes for a date. Found someone who checks all the boxes? Congratulations, it’s now time to have a mini-breakdown in front of your wardrobe because you have nothing to wear.

Relax, we have a solution. Actually, five solutions! From 'the perfect' dress to shoes and accessories, we have curated five looks, all under a budget of Rs 5,000 for your date based on the most common types of dates. Starting with a Zara dress because (a) I wouldn't trust any other brand for a first date and (b) what you're wearing is the first thing your date will notice, you'll find something you like below for sure! We don't know if your date will go well or not, but your outfit will definitely shine.

Dinner Date

A dinner date calls for something special. Something less obvious than a little black dress (duh) but equally unforgettable. Something like this deep-pink velvet dress! It has a V-neck, soft ruffles, loose sleeves and a relaxed fit ensuring comfort inside and confidence outside. Both the colour of the dress and its shape will flatter almost all types of women. So, ruffle-up, won't you? While you look for the perfect candle-light setting for a perfect dinner date, here is how you can make pink a part of your date night, we suggest monotone:

Coffee Date

The thing with coffee dates is that everything depends on how the conversation is going. It can be the shortest date of your life or last for hours ending up in you planning your wedding lehenga in your head. So, opt for an outfit that is as comfortable and cosy as you want your coffee date to go. I suggest this playsuit with a micro-polka dot print featuring ruffle trims and hems. It's perfect for a casual-chic look. The white number comes lined along with an elastic waist. Here's how you can style it to your date:

Drinks Date

This shiny little number is just what your date needs if it involves cocktails and whispering sweet nothings in-between loud music. So romantic! And thanks to the neutral colour, it'll work for a day drinking sesh too that ends in the night! I would clink to this minimal floral printed dress with knot details in the front and a drop-waist hemline. A little flirty, a lot fancy--just how we like our martinis! *wink wink* Style this one-of-a-kind pick to the date like this:

Brunch Date

I love brunches. They aren't too crowded like lunches so you can enjoy some privacy and brunch menus are usually always a great bonder somehow. If you pick a roof-top place, sun-lit candids are a sure thing for some Insta PDA! That being said, feel free to go big on colour and prints to your brunch date. And I have just the dress for you--this green and pink printed dress with statement sleeves and a flowy silhouette that will look amazing on all body types. Styling a printed number is so easy!

Blind Date

And just in case, if you have absolutely no idea as to where you are headed for the date, there's a fail-safe option--go black or go back. It is known that black has a universal appeal so I need not bore you with that factoid but what I'm actually going to do is bless your life with an LBD that's evergreen, easy to style, Zara-approved and affordable too! Not to mention trendy, thanks to the pearl appliqués on it. Day or night, indoor or outdoor, this baby can take you places. In fact, why don't you get this dress anyway? You don't need to have a date to buy an LBD! Sold? Now, here's how I'd style this for a date:
