The average man has two or three important women in his life – his girlfriend, his mother and maybe a sister or best gal pal.
With three leading ladies competing for one man’s attention, it’s only natural that emotions will run high when you, the girlfriend, meet your boyfriend’s mother for the first time.
You may feel anxious, excited, or nauseated before the big meet and greet, mainly due to the fact that you’re dying to make a good impression. After all, she could be the future grandmother to your children! (Okay, that’s getting a tad too dramatic, but it’s the truth!)
One way to make a good impression is to be conscious of the outfit that you wear. Wondering, What to Wear When You Meet His Mom? Clothing says a lot about a person, where it can portray everything from a good attitude to bad self-esteem. It may seem superficial, but clothing really can be the basis of a first impression. Hopefully your boyfriend’s mother is way more into your personality than your clothes, but to stay on the safe side, dress in a presentable manner.
If you can remember just one tip from this article, it is this: Play it safe by wearing full-coverage clothing. Pretend like you’re attending church. Would you wear a tank top with spaghetti straps to a service? Probably not.
Instead of a crop top or tube top, opt to wear something that you won’t have to constantly readjust. The more comfortable you are the more confident you will feel! Consider pairing your favorite skinnies with a sweater. Jeans will give you a down-to-earth look, while the sweater can easily be dressed up or down depending on your accessories.
Next, pick out a pair of shoes from your closet that are also comfortable. Heels are a big no-no. You don’t want to risk a face plant! Plus, you want to be able to stand for a long period of time in case the occasion calls for it. Nothing would be more embarrassing than you having to sit while everyone else stands simply because your heels are hurting your feet.
When it comes to accessorizing, follow the popular saying “less is more.” Stick with non-bling jewelry that doesn’t overpower your outfit and scream “high maintenance.” Simple studs.
Altogether, aim to assemble an outfit that is comfortable, simple, and stylish. You’ll not only feel great, but also, you’ll look great too! Bring on the mom!
