Meeting the parents is nerve-wracking business and choosing what to wear to meet your significant other’s parents is potentially more stressful than deciding what to wear on a first date. But now you can wipe away your sweat and tears and stop cowering in the corner of your clothes-scattered room because CollegeFashionista is here to throw an outfit suggestion at ya! The key is to look smart and immaculate while remaining faithful to your style savvy roots. You want to avoid evoking any ideas that you’re corrupting mom and dad’s darling child with your thug mentality so keep it simple and leave that bear-headed fur coat at the back of your closet.
This Fashionista looks erudite and mod in her Peter Pan collar dress and sharp gray peacoat. She adds a unique and trendy twist by wearing knee-high socks with tiny pearls and sparkly sequins sewn onto them. Her large frame glasses help give her an intelligent air.
Lucky for you, it is quite simple to copy this Fash Pack member’s ensemble. Start with a modest dress that you can wear with a collared blouse or collar necklace. Add a peacoat for warmth. Then, throw in some flair with some jaunty socks and cute oxfords. If you want to give off a pedantic vibe, put on some hipster frames or some less conspicuous glasses. Take a look in the mirror to make sure hairs are in place and makeup is intact before you walk off to win over some parental hearts!
One Simple Change: If you toss the socks and switch the Mary Janes for some Jimmy Choo heels, you’ll have a professional look that keeps you looking in vogue at an internship. Thus if you must rush off to an internship after dining with your beau’s parents, just fling the sleek heels into the trunk of your car so you can make a quick switcheroo before heading off to conquer the world!
