As restrictions start easing around the world, it is time to look forward cautiously to a hopeful future. Romance is definitely back on the agenda as we all look to make up for lost time—and Bollywood’s top couples are no exception. Whether dressed to the nines for a glitzy date on the red carpet or sequestered indoors, here are the notes you need to take on how to make the most of date night.

Go Bold Or Go Home

If given the choice, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja would clearly choose the former. The star was spotted ushering in Valentine’s Day with husband Anand Ahuja in a polka-dotted number layered under a silk cape that paid a subtle nod to the colour of love—ideal for those who don’t like to go overboard with reds and pinks.

Dial-Up The Drama

As you RSVP to all those invites on your social calendar, it is time to plan a couple wardrobe to go along with it. Further cues can be found with Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas who are known to look all loved-up on the red carpet with their sartorial choices—a gilded gown for her, emerald layers for him.

Choose From The Same Colour Palette

Not a fan of matchy colours? Katrina Kaif knows a handy way out: by choosing from the same colour family. For their first Christmas as newlyweds, she opted for a fuss-free floral number in a tranquil pastel palette while hubby Vicky Kaushal echoed her choices with a buttondown in a soothing hue of blue.

Devil Is In The Details

…but so is the secret to a killer couple OOTD. For those last-minute date night plans, it helps to keep a trick or two up your sleeve. Anushka Sharma knows how—the star offered up an elevated take on a striped dress by looking for little details to set her look apart, such as bows and frills.

Twinning Is Winning

Who says a night indoors can’t offer the same dressing-up opportunities? If you’ve been feeling the love for loungewear, look to Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh for pointers. The duo gave a nod to the athleisure trend by opting for coordinated tracksuits that mirrored their own individual choices—a tie-dye number that ties in with Padukone’s fuss-free mandate and a fuchsia set that services Singh’s penchant for bold hues.
