What you should never wear when you meet his parents
Meeting a significant other's parents for the first time is an exciting –but incredibly nerve-racking –experience. It often signals the next step in a relationship and, particularly if your significant other is close to his parents, could mean he's seeking their approval before moving forward. So what should you wear?
Of course you want to impress them, but it's also important to let your real personality shine. But "just be yourself" only goes so far as advice in these situations. Elaine Turner, a Houston-based designer who also runs a styling program in 20 states, emphasized that "what you wear is another form of communication. It's your visual language to the world."
So wearing the wrong thing can say even more than you realize. Here's what Turner and other experts in all things fashion and dating say you should never wear when that very special someone takes you home to meet the parents.
