Admittedly, the innocence of these bios makes them probably more apt for Bumble, but you catch our drift.

Hot date this weekend? Whether you’re one for dating apps or not, there’s no denying that we dress to impress and convey a particular message when we go on a date. Oftentimes, it’s to play to our charms, and live up to what we may have said via text, 15-second Insta photo, or — if you’re a daredevil — in a pre-date phone call.

Other times, it’s to highlight our best features, put our best foot (and shoe) forward, and come across as the nicest, most date-worthy version of ourselves.

Here, we’ve categorised a few key looks you could try, according to what your Tinder bio may say. Consider it a dressing guide for what to wear on your next date, or consider it a prod and play on the peculiar characters you may have met on your past dates. Obviously, we’re messing around.

But also, not really. Read and shop on.

“I play basketball after work and drink highballs with the boys.”

…And you like to wear a ‘fun’ shirt to prove you still know how to have a good time. Enter AMIRI’s Dupont Falling Camp-Collar Printed Silk-Twill Shirt. Inspired by retro holiday shirts from the 1950s, you’re the kind of guy who likes to work hard and play hard. Appreciating quality, the shirt is made in Italy from silk-twill, and brings forward a vintage flair with its camp collar. You’re young, you’re fun, you’re handsome — and if it’s not obvious enough, perhaps the lighters and cigar motif will bring that point across.

“Hot yoga is life.”

You know what’s hot, and the hottest bag of the season is no doubt Bottega Veneta’s Cassette Padded Intrecciato Leather Shoulder Bag. Creating perfectly-shaped squares the same way you create a perfectly-shaped downwards dog pose, the bag is undeniably stylish, and belongs on the shoulder of he or she who can do it justice. The ’90s inspired silhouette is made up of two layers of soft leather that are thickly padded, making it soft and puffy to touch. It also features an adjustable cross-body strap, so you’ve got plenty of variety to play with here. You love variety.

"Catching waves not feelings."

You head down to the islands pretty frequently to surf your soul out. Yes, 2020 has been weird, but the beaches have never been emptier, and your ‘gram is aflame with gorgeous sunrise and sunset shots. Sometimes they feature your silhouette as you catch all the best waves. Sometimes they feature you in tie-dye. After all, tie-dye is also 2020’s biggest leisurely trend. This John Elliott University Tie-Dyed Cotton-Jersey T-shirt is exclusive to Mr Porter, and features a marbled dye in a sweet pink hue. The crew neck keeps it casual for a more relaxed look, because you’re a chill dude after all.

"I like my relationships how I like my omakase dinners: exclusive and long-lasting."

You’re a bit of a visionary, and you love sitting by the counter and enjoying a long omakase dinner. Are you the type that wears sunglasses indoors? You might as well be. These Native Sons Kent Square-Frame Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses are made in Japan from blue tortoiseshell acetate. They’re fitted with dark-grey lenses and give you a very artsy look, which is apt because you’ll probably head to a cool art and photography exhibition after this date.

“Hola, I speak seven languages, enchanté.”

You studied abroad, you summer in Europe, and you winter in Niseko. You also use ‘summer’ and ‘winter’ as verbs. You see yourself as uber-sophisticated, or just very worldly. What shoes look more cultured than penny loafers? We love this pair by G.H. Bass & Co, originally modelled after traditional Norwegian farm shoes. The colour-blocking here is not so crass but rather classy, with hand-stitched seams for longevity and a real ‘I’ll love you long time’ vibe for your date. Das ist romantic.

“I’m kind of Emily in Paris in Bangkok.”

Love her or hate her: we all know somebody that reminds us of Emily in Paris. Embracing that French girl chic, this Philip Treacy Crystal-embellished Lace and Straw Fascinator keeps the mystery alive. After all, you’re not the type to reveal everything on the first date. The fascinator is handmade from white straw with a floral lace veil decorated with tonal crystals. It’s all held together on a headband, meaning that it’s easy to put on or take off. You love a bit of dressing up.

"My dog is my best friend, if I'm honest."

You’re a laid-back guy. You have a few dogs at home, and you look forward to seeing them every day when you head home. This Casablanca Printed Cotton-Jersey T-shirt is a tangible interpretation of your character. It comes from the Casablanca AW20 show held at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand Hotel, which you actually attended, but you’re not one to brag. The cotton-jersey t-shirt features one of the original prints of the house featuring a litter of Dalmatians, which you love because you loved the Disney movie. Netflix and chill, maybe later?

"I'd rather be hanging out with my cat, if I'm honest."

You’re not a typical cat lady. You’re a fierce lady — and you’ve got the bodysuit to prove it. Whilst it’s technically a swimsuit, this Ganni One-shoulder Leopard piece looks just as good at the bar as it does by the pool. Pair it with a high-waisted skirt, trousers, or jeans, and allow it to complement your beautiful, sun-kissed skin. The alluring neckline will definitely catch all eyes. Swipe right at your own risk, and unleash the beast.
