WHAT TO WEAR: Meet the Parents

There are many things one learns when going off to college—how to do your own laundry, how to find the best places to study in the library and where to get the best breakfast sandwich on those sluggish Sunday mornings. But one thing that has thrown many for a loop time and time again: dating in college. Gone are the days of crushing on that cute boy since second grade and finally getting asked to the prom ten years of flirtatious friendship later. For many, the person they are dating is relatively new in their life, which means having to meet their hometown best friends and parents during holiday breaks or Parent’s Weekend.

It’s crucial to dress to impress when meeting your significant other’s parents for the first time. The idea is to look trendy and unique while also keeping it tasteful. This Fashionista nailed it when going to meet her boyfriend’s family over Christmas break. She kept it classy and elegant with a long-sleeved shirt, a suede button-down skirt, an oversized cape cardigan and over-the-knee boots. She donned a few simple pieces of jewelry, seamlessly tying together her look. She chose neutral tones for her outfit to keep her look subtle and sweet.

One Simple Change: To take this look from meet the parents to date night, simply lose the chunky sweater and swipe on a bold colored lipstick for the perfect touch of sexy and sweet.
