Please, don't do a Vidya Balan!

I know every time you have a dinner date, you spend hours and days thinking about what to wear, rummage through your cupboard to find that shade of nail paint and wonder all night if everything will go perfectly. It will go as you want it to only if you don’t fall prey to some silly practices just to look hawt. Here are a few fashion faux you must AVOID on you date.

1. You do want to look sexy on your date, but that doesn’t mean you walk out in your lingerie (even if you have spent a fortune to buy them) like Nikki of Neal n Nikki. Yes, we are talking about not trying to dress up like Tanishaa Mukerji in that movie where all she wore throughout was a colourful piece of lingerie!

Yes, in an attempt to try and look elegant, please do not ape Bollywood diva Vidya Balan and don’t drape a saree around you. It’s a big no-no.
