Meeting your boyfriend’s parents for the first time can be really scary. Usually you’ve heard all about them and know what they’re like and what they expect of you. However, it still puts a lot of pressure on you to make a good impression. There are many things to think about when preparing for such a meeting, but any good Fashionista’s mind will be on the perfect outfit.
In my opinion, an occasion such as this needs an outfit that is age appropriate, not too revealing and unique to your personality. I saw this Fashionista over the weekend and thought she had the perfect combination of those three things. First off, her outfit is very age appropriate. Maxi dresses are super popular outfits for college girls this year, so she definitely got it right with that one. The neckline is a little bit low cut, but that balances well with the ruffle and embroidery. This way, it is obvious that she is a grown woman, but there are some girly details and she’s only showing a little skin in one area which keeps it tasteful. And finally, this dress is very unique. The choice of fabric, shape of the dress and the intricate embroidery are all a little bit different. To me, this outfit says “casual elegance” which is perfect for a first time meeting with the parents. With this Fashionista’s look, they will be falling in love with your classy, feminine and unique style!
One Simple Change: One good thing about maxi dresses is that they are so versatile. This dress may be great for meeting your boyfriend’s parents, but it could also be an awesome outfit for shopping or brunch. Those occasions are a little more casual, so this Fashionista could pull her hair up into a messy braid or ponytail and trade her wedges for sandals. This would give the look the perfect amount of dressy and casual and make you look effortlessly beautiful.
