Meeting your significant other’s parents isn’t exactly the most stress-free event. You want to make a good impression and also let your true personality shine through. And of course, it all comes down to the question of the hour: what do I wear?! Personally, I think you can never go wrong with looking sweet because it gives you a bit of wiggle room to mix style and class. Think dress to impress without trying too hard. Here’s an outfit that I think would be perfect for meeting the parents:
You’ll definitely want to wear more modest hemlines and necklines, but that doesn’t mean you have to dumb down your style. Use this opportunity to accessorize tastefully! Let the small details in the outfit be a reflection of who you are. In my case, I used heels and a motorcycle jacket to throw in an edgier vibe with the Peter Pan collar and knee-length dress, and I also mixed textures to let my inner-fashionista shine through.
Not to sound like a broken record, but make sure that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing! Your ensemble should be a confidence booster for you. Don’t wear anything you know you’ll need to adjust (i.e., dresses and skirts that are too short). Aim to walk through the door, and WOW your beau’s parents with your wonderful personality. Let your style and beauty be the added bonus that makes you feel good about yourself.
