WHAT TO WEAR: Meet The Parents

There isn’t much that I would classify as more terrifying than meeting the parents. Ok, I may be exaggerating a bit, but meeting the parents is definitely high on the list of things I’d just rather not. But, when the inevitable lunch date comes around, you might as well give them a great first impression, starting with your outfit.

There is always a fine line between being too edgy and being too frumpy when meeting the parents. I mean, you don’t want them thinking their son is dating a grandma. However, at the same time, you don’t want them to look at you and think you walked off the last show of NYFW (unless his parents are into fashion, then I say go for it)! The “perfect meet the parents” ensemble is the combination of the two opposites.

A combination of these opposites is exactly what this Fashionista is rocking. She has on a super cute black T-shirt dress. T-shirt dresses are a great option when meeting the parents because they are the perfect combination of classic and trendy. This Fashionista couples her dress with a vintage denim vest from the ‘90s. Rocking vintage pieces around his parents is a great conversation starter, especially if the pieces are from his parent’s prime time.

This Fashionista gives her look a bit of a sweet tooth with the help of her oversized pearl necklace. To keep with the classic look of her denim vest, she has on a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses. For shoes, this Fashionista keeps it simple with a pair of nude flats, which are perfect for any adventure his parents might take you on!

One Simple Change: Take this meet the parents look to a date night with your man by switching out the shoes. Trade in your simple nude flats for a pair of heeled booties to give your look an even edgier look. To add some extra zest, throw on your favorite shade of red lipstick!
