WHAT TO WEAR: Meet The Parents

You met your boyfriend at the beginning of the semester and have been dating for a few months. He has told you nothing but wonderful things about his parents and you can’t wait to meet them at his family’s Christmas celebration. The only problem is what in the world should you wear. Of course you don’t want them to think you are too scandalous, but you also don’t want to wear your grandma’s old Christmas sweater turtleneck. The challenge I present you with is to find a happy medium. A classic dress with simple accessories and a nice shoe will always give a great impression, no matter what.

I found this Fashionista wearing this simple silhouette and it immediately screamed class and elegance. The length of her dress was perfect for a meet the parents situation because it was long enough to be appropriate, but not too long that it aged her. Remember that pesky fingertip rule from high school? You may want to consider that the next time you go to your boyfriends house for dinner! I also loved the pattern and colors of the dress.

The deep colors are very soothing and create a sense of calmness to her while the pattern shows she has a girly, fun side to her. For her accessories, she kept it simple and traditional with two Pandora charm bracelets. These would be great to wear to meet your boyfriend’s parents because his mom probably has a bracelet of her own and the two of you could compare charms. This would be a great way for them to get to know you a little better. I also loved this Fashionista’s shoe choice because the metallic added an extra pop of personality.

One Simple Change: To take this outfit from meeting the parents to date night simply put on a pair of heels, put your hair in a cute up-do and grab a soft shawl in case it gets chilly.
