The time has finally come. You’ve been asked to meet the parents. After the initial fear and excitement has passed, you’re left with the inevitable question of “what do I wear?” Naturally, you are determined to make a fantastic first impression, as this meeting could make or break your relationship. While laying in bed the night before the big day mentally mixing and matching possible outfit combinations, keep in mind your setting. It is imperative to dress appropriately for the occasion. It is not the time to be wearing your new mini cut out dress!
When prepping to get ready, you should choose pieces which are modest and classic, meaning “prim and proper”. Think interview attire, but chicer. This season the monochrome trend has skyrocketed and we are seeing the black and white trend on the runways and on the streets. Designers such as Gucci and Marc Jacobs have adopted this minimalistic trend for spring and summer. Monochrome is a great trend to experiment with when meeting the parents––it is chic yet it encompasses your Fashionista flair.
A feminine dress is another great option as it represents your softer and playful side. Keep the outfit fun and flirty. If opting for a solid colour dress, pair it with bold jewelery to reflect your personal style. Although, don’t forget your personality is your best accessory, so put your best foot forward and be confident.
I spotted this Fashionista and her overall outfit screamed sophisticated-chic; the Egyptian blue blouse tucked into the off-white lace shorts represented her bohemian style, but when paired with minimal jewelery such as the chunky gold-chain necklace, simple clutch and basic black flats, it instantly transformed into an elegant ensemble, which is perfect for meeting with the parents!
One Simple Change: Replace the black pointed flats with a pair of wooden wedges to transform this outfit into the perfect ensemble to wear on a girl’s night out on the town.
