What to Wear When You Meet Your Girlfriend’s Parents
First impressions are everything, especially when meeting your girlfriend’s parents. The key to choosing what to wear to meet your girlfriend’s parents is to wear something that projects your best qualities — qualities that your girlfriend’s parents would value. Three major qualities that every parent wants to see in their girlfriend’s boyfriend are loyalty, respect and a sense of humour. Here’s how to ensure that your outfit highlights all three of these qualities:
Every girl’s parents wants their daughter to find someone who is loyal, so they don’t have to worry about their “little girl” having her heart broken. Show them that you’re someone they can trust by wearing a collared shirt. It associates your character with ambition, wealth and hard work; which in-turn demonstrates loyalty and responsibility.
Please and thank you’s aren’t the only ways of showing you respect your boyfriend and his parents; the way you dress goes a long way too. Wear clothes that fit, tuck in your shirt and iron out any wrinkles. Putting time and effort into your appearance will show that you considered where you were going and who you were going to see; which is what having respect is really all about right?
Sense of Humour
Making your girlfriend laugh was the way to her heart and the same goes for her parents. Show them that you’re more than just a pretty boy by wearing something with colours that pop, patterns or even a small display of pop culture. If your girlfriend says her parents are easy going, whip out your favourite inoffensive graphic tee.
Meeting your girlfriend’s parents is an unavoidable rite of passage in a relationship; and being equipped with the right outfit will ensure your success. Good luck!
