WHAT TO WEAR: Meet the Parents

Summer heat brings summer lovin’! Many new relationships start sprouting and developing during the summer, and one important step in a relationship is the dreadful meeting of the parents. Meeting your significant other’s parents can be a nerve-wracking situation. Questions like, “What should I say? How do I act? What should I wear?” usually race through people’s minds. Luckily, I can show you an easy outfit that men can wear this summer when trying to impress their partner’s parents.

This Fashionisto graciously volunteered to show me one of the looks he usually wears when meeting his girlfriend’s parents. With this outfit, he was able to combine both casual and dressed up by pairing his jeans with a button-down, long sleeve shirt from H&M. Then instead of opting for his go-to Vans, this Fashionisto decided to bump up this look by wearing a dressier shoe. As a last detail, he completed the look by wearing his Fossil watch. This look hits the perfect mark between presentable and overly-dressed, as well as displays a great way to look put together, yet still give off a casual and relaxed vibe. This outfit is affordable, yet also includes pieces that although may be a bit more expensive, proving to be a worthwhile investment.

Have fun this summer and don’t forget to represent yourself and your style to the best of your ability at all times!

One Simple Change: This outfit can have simple changes that will transition it from “meet the parents” to “weekend wear.” One could either replace the button-down with a graphic T-shirt or change the shoes to a more casual sneaker like Converse or Vans.
