In the modern age our phones connect us to every aspect of our lives, even our love lives. Looking for love or just a hook up dating apps really took over the millennial dating game when they came in to the mainstream and have dominated ever since. With our presences becoming ever more online the question of a good first impression becomes ever more prevalent. Apparently, we make a snap judgment in the first 7 seconds of meeting someone and so that first IRL date and the question of what to wear has arguably become even more important. What we wear reflects who we are and when we meet someone it is often that this will catch their eye. So no matter what you are looking for in your love life, look no further for the perfect date outfit.
Keeping it Casual – Tinder
Profile: on the go, fast-paced lifestyle, practical clothing
Since launching in 2012 Tinder undoubtedly has become known as the OG dating app and changed the game for our millennial dating habits. Being able to find Mr Right or Mr Alright for Right Now became as easy as swiping right. Looking to keep things casual in both your love life and wardrobe? Keep things simple and relaxed with a failsafe combo of a slogan tee and jeans that lets him, or her, know you are ‘Worth It’. We love it paired with high-rise jeans and a statement boot or chunky trainer. You can even throw on a jacket to elevate this casual look. Perfect for the casual millennial looking to keep things in their love life strictly black and white.
Wearing the Trousers – Bumble
Profile: strong, bold, power dressing, confident style, girl boss
Since its launch in 2014 Bumble has certainly created a buzz in the dating app scene leading many women to hit that download button in their search for sex, love and romance. Unlike many other apps, Bumble has subverted gender norms by putting women in command of the conversation; empowering them to always make the first move. Mirror those power moves in your love life with a power dressing wardrobe to match. Take on the suiting trend with a sharp tailored look which will ooze sex appeal and for sure command attention. For that ‘girl boss’ confidence, we suggest a sheer Tuxedo Blazer Dress or off the shoulder Trouser Suit. Make sure to have a classic camel coat to throw on at the end of the night. Finish off the look by accessorizing with some Bee earrings as a nod to your Bumble beginnings.
Talk the Talk – Hinge
Profile: conversationalist, flirty, fun
Hinge matches users based upon personality and preferences, creating a well-rounded profile around a series of conversation starters. The aim is to get millennials chatting each other up in the digital sphere the same as in a bar or coffee shop. This old-fashioned approach does away with mindless swiping and encourages users to be more mindful when matching with potential partners. Take on this classic yet modern approach in your date outfit as timeless dressing never goes out of style. Sex and sophistication are your best friend when you wear an elegant sheer lace skirt and classic pearls. Contrast this look with a modern combo of pink and red for a pop of colour. Be playful with your accessories styling your look with a fun and flirty ‘Kiss Kiss’ necklace. Finish the look with a swipe of red lipstick which can be the perfect conversation starter.
