Dress To Impress- Meeting the Family


By Kelsey Hokit
Meeting your partner's family is one of the most stressful points in any relationship. You are probably worried about what to wear and say, worried if they will like you, and what you will think of them. 
 
Today we are going to talk about what to wear when you meet your partner’s family so you are guaranteed to impress them. This will help take away the stress of finding the perfect outfit so you can focus on enjoying your first time meeting them! 
 
1. Know Where you Are Going
One of the first things you need to determine in order to decide how to dress is going to be to find out where you will be going. You might dress slightly differently if you are going to their family home versus going out to eat at a restaurant. Once you know where you will meet your partner’s family, you can better plan your outfit.
 
2. Avoid Anything Too Casual
Meeting your partner’s family is not the time to wear your coziest clothing items such as sweatpants and sweatshirts. It is better to be overdressed and wearing something such as sweats will only present as if you did not want to put in the effort with picking out an outfit. 
 
3. Wear What Makes You Feel Confident
When it comes to choosing an outfit, you will always want to pick something that makes you feel confident. If you feel confident, you will feel much better going into the situation. If you are someone that prefers jeans then wear your favorite jeans with a beautiful top or sweater and finish it with either heels, booties, or a nice flat. You can throw in your own style with fun jewelry. 
 
In the instance that you are going to a nice restaurant you can always wear a beautiful dress with heels or flats and a simple pair of earrings so you will look put together, but dressed up enough. 
 
With these easy tips, you will be able to prepare yourself for meeting your partner’s family without having to worry about how you should pick an outfit!
