Meeting his parents for the first time is a difficult task in itself. And, with the added worry of looking perfect for them, things get quite too overwhelming. Conservative or not, most Indian parents want their would-be daughters-in-law to be graceful in terms of their dressing style. Hence, you need to be a bit careful while selecting a dress for your first meeting with them. After all, first impression is the last impression!
So ladies, if your first meeting with your boyfriend’s parents has been fixed and you are just too confused about what to wear, then you are at the right place. Here are a couple of dressing ideas for you to impress his parents on your first meeting with them.
A very clichéd option, but it works every time. If you are the one who prefers to play safe, then pick out a salwar kameez in your favourite colour. Choose an elongating silhouette, like a straight long kurta, and team it up with a pair of palazzo or cigarette pants. Add an interesting touch to it with contrasting earrings, and statement ring or a necklace. Finally, complete the look with loose curls, lined eyes, and bold lips.
The flowy and beautiful anarkali suits are one of the hot favourites among ladies. And, if you are struggling with your bulges, then this is just the right option for you. Instead of opting for an embellished look, opt for a simple anarkali in lightweight fabrics, like cotton, rayon, silk, etc. Accessorise yourself with a pair of ethnic jhumkas, juttis and an embellished clutch. The key to this traditional look is the colour and simplicity. So, finish off your look with kohled eyes and glossy lips.
If traditional Indian wear is not your cup of tea, but you still want something conservative, then this look is just for you. Simply pair a bright tunic top with your slim-fit trousers. Opt for a top that has some embellishments, embroidery or interesting print on it, so that it can balance out your plain trousers. Accessorise the look with stud earrings, a watch, a pair of bright heels and a clutch bag. Keep your makeup limited to just an eyeliner.

Kaftan is a great silhouette to accentuate all the right curves and cover all unsightly bulges. If you are running behind on your weight loss schedule, then this is the perfect option for you! Pick up an interesting cut or a mesmerising print, the choice is absolutely yours. Simply team it up with a pair of ankle-length leggings and nude heels. Add on a statement ring and sport a bright pout to bring the outfit together.

A maxi dress is yet another fashionable option that you can consider wearing for your first meeting with his parents. It allows you to express your femininity in a modern yet subtle way. While selecting a style, just keep in mind your body type. A maxi dress in a solid colour is usually the safest bet for most body types. This style becomes a canvas to display a statement necklace and your bright personality. Keep your look simple and pretty with sleek eyeliner, soft pink lips, and a low ponytail. And, to look perfect from head to toe, make sure you wear your favourite pair of strappy sandals with it.

Take a sophisticated route towards your outfit choice with a sleek dress. While a skater dress accentuates a slim waist, a pencil dress lengthens and slims down any body type. Keep your accessories limited to a bracelet, a hair band, and a pair of gold or silver heels.
