Oh, what a time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, we have it pretty good: Past generations didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course) or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the perfect selfie for their profile picture or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
So, to help you navigate this ambiguous and often online-centric landscape of modern dating, we’ve put together some cute (and, okay, slightly tongue-in-cheek) outfits that set the right tone for eight very different kinds of dates. Click through the slideshow for styling inspiration for your next date.
