In an ever-growing digital world, it’s no surprise that online dating has rapidly become the new normal. And whatever type of relationship you may be looking for, the saying “there’s an app for that” has never been more apropos. From friends-with benefits to something more serious, you’re spoiled for choice, so be sure to send the right message and dress the part.

  • BUMBLE, THE WINE TASTING DATE
    • You’re In Charge. Bumble is like Tinder in that you swipe left to dislike and right to like. The difference is once you find a match, it’s up to the woman to initiate conversation in the next 24 hours before the match vanishes.
    • WHAT TO WEAR: Being comfortable is always key on a first date – you’re nervous enough, so you don’t want to be fidgeting with your outfit. A simple, printed maxi dress with accent jewelry keeps things light and easy.
  • COFFEE MEETS BAGEL, THE COFFEE DATE
    • One Match at a Time. For the dater looking for more, Coffee Meets Bagel matches you based on personal preferences. The focus here is on chatting with one match per day.
    • WHAT TO WEAR: For a casual date, throw on your favorite jeans and a cute top and blazer. Either way, you won’t be under- or overdressed.
  • OKCUPID, THE SUNDAY BRUNCH DATE
    • Let’s Mingle. More than just an app, OkCupid connects users based on preference, allows you to see who’s online, gives you a match of the day, and hosts singles mixers for inperson matches.
    • WHAT TO WEAR: Pair a flirty dress with a light jacket for an effortlessly chic day look.
  • HINGE, THE ART GALLERY DATE
    • Friends of Friends. This app makes connections based on your mutual friends via a rating system and weeds out the “randoms.”
    • WHAT TO WEAR: Experiment with textures and shades that play up your personality.
  • TINDER, THE DRINKS AND DANCING DATE
    • The App That Started It All. Swipe right to like, left to pass. Make a match with as many users as you like, whether as friends-with-benefits or something more.
    • WHAT TO WEAR: A little black dress is always a YES for a night out. Choose a dress with interesting details to show off your confident and daring personality.
