The font itself should also be the same as your resume; choose a readable bookprint font such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri.
There is no need to use different styles in a cover letter. Use a uniform font (a bookprint font such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri) and avoid underlining, italicizing, or bolding.
However, if your letter includes a heading with your name and contact information, you may choose to bold or underline this text. Your cover letter heading should be the same as your resume heading.
