Spring Style Inspiration: What to Wear to Meet the Parents
By Claire

Cate writes, “I really need your help please! Im going to LA in June to meet the parents of my beau and need some inspiration for bright, summery sophisticated outfits that will suit my curvy figure. Help me please!!”
Hey Cate! This is a super big deal, but don’t fret, we got you. Of course the obvious advice is to err on the conservative side, but you can of course show off your personality with bright colors and a smattering of prints.

It’s always good to have a maxi skirt on tap, and I love what Tibi has for this spring.

Pair your maxi with a white tank and flat sandals. Slip on a jean jacket if it gets chilly, and add even more interest with a bold colored clutch:

Get even more maxi skirts at varying price points here:

If you’re catching a quick lunch, a blazer and jean combo always works. Give the look a spring twist with white jeans, a gray tee, and yellow blazer:

Pop on a pair of simple heels and a black statement bag. Add a fun flourish, like a Hermès belt, if you really want to floss. Get the look above for a splurge or steal here:

Lastly, I love the idea of a shirt dress. They’re simple and casual, somewhat conservative, and perfect for a summer meeting:

Pair with flats or wedges for the parents, but keep a pair of cute heels in your bag in case you and your beau decide to peel off afterwards for a date night alone:

That does it!
Which look would you rock?

    j’adore! especially the peach colored maxi skirt!

  4. uh huh says:

    I would say no to shades. They come off as aloof.

  5. Aha says:

    @uh huh shades are aloof if you’re sitting outside/ in the sun? Ridiculous. Love all three, would probably go with option 2, it’s so my style!

    I love these suggestions. You never know someone’s family until you meet them. I think these outfits leave a good impression without being pretentious.

  11. Drea says:

    I love all the options but can we get this look for less?

  12. brianna says:

    yes you can def get these looks for less, go to they have cheaper maxi skirts that look similar to that for like $50-70,and cheaper blazers,short sun dresses & white jeans… also has a good amount of denim jackets for less..

    All three are winners! Appropriate but still fashionable and shows lots of personality at the same time.
