WHAT TO WEAR: Meet The Parents

What to Wear

What is it they say about first impressions? Oh yeah, they last a lifetime. Nothing says pressure like meeting the parents of your significant other, especially if you see this going somewhere in the long run. It can’t be stressed enough how important your first impression is. Aside from his parents judging how you talk, eat and breathe, the first thing they will notice is how you’re dressed, but no need to worry. With this Fashionista’s amazing style, you’ll be able to grab your man and walk into his parents house with the confidence to impress them immensely.

The last thing you want to do when first meeting the parents is throw on the first T-shirt and pair of leggings you see; you’ll definitely want to aim for a more put together look. This Fashionista’s ensemble is ideal no matter what the situation is for your first encounter. She’s not underdressed, but she’s not too overdressed, just a perfectly happy medium. Her sweater dress is on point—a great option for looking casual but still fashionable. I would pair it with a belt to add more shape to your body, just like this Fashionista did. This Lauren Conrad sweater dress would be a perfect pick, and I love the details. Another addition to this outfit could be a pair of sheer or textured tights.

As I say every week, absolutely always accessorize! I love, love, love what this Fashionista did with her dangling necklace and knotted headband, giving her a boho-chic look. Although I adore how this Fashionista kept her outfit all neutral, adding a bright floral twisted headband would give you the chance to add a fun color. You also couldn’t go wrong if you opted for more of a statement necklace, which could give you another opportunity to add a pop of color. The neutral look is great for winter right now, but as spring approaches these colors would be fabulous swaps.

Using the basis of this Fashionista’s style is a wonderful place to start when picking out your outfit to meet the parents. Just remember a few things: don’t stress, be confident and look put together, and you’ll be sure to leave an impeccable and everlasting impression.

One Simple Change: Add a leather jacket and ankle booties to this look, plus a few more fun accessories, and you’re ready for a girls’ night out.
