If you’re invited over for Thanksgiving dinner at your partner’s family home for the first time, it can be a little bit nerve-racking, but don’t take on additional stress by being inappropriately dressed. You can wear a dressier version of your usual hoodie/jeans/sneakers so that you look put together while staying true to your signature style.
Below you will find a few styling suggestions using hoodie/jeans/sneakers for meeting the parents for the first time. The most important thing is to make a great first impression!
The Hoodie: The Cashmere Hoodie, Grey, $140
This hoodie is definitely an investment piece. You want to break it out for special occasions like meeting your girlfriend’s parents. It looks like a regular hoodie, but it’s actually made out of cashmere, so it’s nicer version of your day-to-day hooded sweater. You can wear it under a jacket for a more formal dinner party.
Whether you’re meeting the parents at your girl’s childhood home or having Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant, you most certainly want to stick to black jeans or at least a dark washed pair of jeans. This will help to avoid any embarrassment or the feeling of being underdressed. These jeans from Old Navy fit the bill, and they’re 40% off at checkout.
The Sneakers: Vans Classic Slip-On Core Classics, True White, $49.95
Sneakers are an option, but they have to be clean and match the outfit. The Vans Classic Slip-On sneakers are the perfect example of the right sneaker for this type occasion.
