What To Wear To Meet His Parents: 2 Outfit Ideas

What To Wear To Meet His Parents: 2 Outfit Ideas

Your boyfriend has asked you to meet his parents. This is a long awaited moment for some, but to most it’s a bit of a stressful event, because you worry they will like you or not. After the initial stress goes away, the issue of what to wear arises.

When it comes to occasions like this one, finding the right outfit can be quite stressful and time consuming, since apparently, your brain is certain that nothing you will come up with, is suitable to wear.

Depending on the case, whether it is the first time ever, which means a more formal meeting, or you have met before and now it’s more of a casual gathering, the outfit needs to be fitting to the situation.

You can’t go in shorts and flip flops to a first meeting, and there is no point in going too formal, to just hang out with his family, with which you have already been acquainted.

We have planned two outfits for this occasion, the first one for an informal meeting with the parents and the other one for a formal meeting.

It will help you have a general idea on what clothes go best with either occasion, and maybe you will even find something in the items we’ve selected, that suits your preference and style.

Outfit #1: An Informal Lunch With His Parents

Outfit #1: An Informal Lunch With His Parents

Let’s start with the informal meeting outfit. As you can see, it’s a very casual outfit, that can be worn in many occasions, and can be customized with accessories of your choice.

The dress we have selected is from Kensie and it’s the Daisy dot eyelet dress.

It is a short, sleeveless summer dress, in a dotted pattern, with the shape of daisies all over, hence the name.

This dress is very feminine and goes well with heels and flats, but we’d recommend open- toe shoes, or sandals.

The material is 100% cotton, which makes it a very lightweight dress and comfortable to wear.

There are three colors available: Midnight sapphire, Canary and White and you can go with either of them, but we would suggest either white or

yellow, since it’s more flattering to wear, combined with the jacket we’ve chosen for this look.

Outfit Idea #1: Polka Dots Look

Polka Dots Look

Clothes are a necessity in our lives. While some might go about it as if it’s a burden that they must deal with on a day-to-day basis, others are so involved and in love with finding that perfect outfit that it consumes hours upon hours and not rarely, even a lot of money. Nevertheless, we can all agree that the right outfit will not only make you look more presentable, but it is also a confidence booster.

With all that being said, we are launching a new series of articles about clothes, where we will discuss different trends, styles and patterns. Each of the articles will have a sample outfit recommended by us, with information for every item included.

For the first one, we thought it best to open with polka dots. They have been around for so long and never go out of style.

For those not acquainted with polka dots, they are evenly sized and spaced dots all over a piece of fabric. Traditionally, they were used by flamenco dancers, but then they spread and became a fashion style.

When most of us think of polka dots, Minnie Mouse comes to mind, with her red dress with white dots and the matching bow. She was created in 1928 by Disney, and since then the polka dots have been used in so many different pieces, with the dresses, of course, being still the mostly used and designed around this style.

As it is common knowledge, if a celebrity wears something, it becomes a trend afterwards and that’s actually how polka dots became famous, when Miss America 1926 wore a swimsuit with polka dots all over it. Nowadays, celebrities still continue to wear clothes with polka dots on them.

Polka Dots Look

As you can see, Jessica Alba is wearing a Tory Burch white dress with blue polka dots. Miranda Kerr was photographed in the “Space Cadet” jumpsuit from Beck & Bridge, with an open neckline, in black fabric and white polka dots.

In Dior‘s hot couture event, Cameron Diaz wore a dress from the fashion house itself, a beautiful dress, with short sleeved and a belt around the waist. And proving that polka dots can go with any style, Olivia Wilde rocked this white and black dots skirt by Mark Jacobs.

Now let’s head on to our outfit selection for this trend.

Polka Dots Outfit

We have come up with a casual outfit, which looks youthful and it is so comfortable that you can wear it whenever you please. And of course, there are accessories to go with it, and a bag, so you can have a complete image of how to mix and match clothes.

How To Have a Casual-Rocker Style

Casual-Rocker Style

If you were to ask someone “What kind of people wear black the most?”, you would definitely get “Rockers” as the first answer. For many years, it has become like a correlation, where wearing mostly black clothes means you have a rock style. However, that is not entirely true because when it comes to the typical rock style, what most people don’t realize is that there are many different combinations, colors and designs. Just like most styles out there.

It got popular from rock bands and the groupies of the time, who wore these clothes to identify with their favorite bands and then it spread and became a trend, not solely focused on rock bands anymore. Celebrities have worn it as well, as you can see in the picture above.

This is a style in which everyone can find something that fits their personality and preference. It’s such a versatile style and you cannot go wrong with it.

So, say you’re a fan of the style and you identify with it. It makes you feel good and confident, but the problem is that you don’t always know how to go about it. What to combine, how to combine them. What goes well with what and which colors to choose. And while considering how many options there are, it is definitely confusing and time consuming. But there is also the issue of wearing this style in your day-to-day life, not just for concert events or meetings with like-minded people.

We wrote this article just for that. A guide to help you girls out there understand the rock style better and wear it daily, without looking out of place in casual gatherings. We have also included our choice in each category, to help you have a better image of all this.

Casual-Rocker Style

The Jackets

Let’s start with the jackets. Leather jackets to be exact. They are the icon item of the rock style and the great thing about the style of these jackets is that not only do they look good in this style, they go really well with other choices as well, such as dresses or more formal clothes.

Whether it is PU leather or real leather, that’s a personal choice. What you need to keep in mind is the color. For the rock style, the darker the better. Preferably black. There are also different designs, some of which feature studs and spikes, to make your style look a bit edgy.

Zohran Leather Jacket

CHECK IT OUT ON AMAZON

Our suggestion would be this jacket from Zohran, made of 100% leather and an inner polyester lining. It is a long sleeved jacket, with diamond stitches as the pattern on the outside. It has four zipper pockets on the sides and a short collar. This is a very comfortable jacket, which is another thing to look for when purchasing the jacket of your choice.

8 Bags for a Casual and Fresh Look

8 Bags for a Casual and Fresh Look

Bags are a must have item for everyone. Especially for the ladies, who often have way too many things to carry, and pockets just don’t do the job.

What is best about bags is that they are practical and offer you to carry many things at once, without inhibiting your freedom of movement. Another good thing about bags, is the huge selection available out there. Many colors, different styles, shapes, lengths and designs, each with specific features, to suit your daily life.

When it comes to bag selection, you need to keep several things in mind, such as what you are using it for and how many things are you putting in it.

For the purpose of a bag, it’s important to select the right one, because, for example: a small purse, while it might look very fashionable, it is not practical and will not be able to carry a lot, or a messenger bag, while it is practical, carries a lot and is comfortable to use, it’s quite wide, which might not suit your day-to-day activity. So keep in mind that when looking for the right bag, features such as practicality, comfort and size are the three main things to look for.

We have compiled a list with eight bags that are different in size, shape and design, with a good color selection as well, so you can combine it with your favorite clothes. They also differ in purpose and practicality, so whether it is for school, work or formal occasions, you can rest assured, there will be a right fit in our selection for you.

4 Denim Trends For Women 2016

Denim pants are everywhere. All of us own a pair, whether they are cropped, ripped or just the classic design. Over the years, the designs and trends have changed immensely. First it was men who wore them, then they expanded to women as well. They were usually used by people working in mines and cowboys, but then, with the hippie subculture and the jeans’ appeal to teenagers, they were worn by a larger group of people, leading us to modern days, where they are worn by everyone.
