Thanksgiving: How to Dress Your Best to Meet the Parents

The holidays - like Thanksgiving -  are a stressful time for ladies who will be meeting their man's parents for the first time.  You must find the perfect look to impress his mom and sisters -- one that's fashionable, chic and classy.  What are the exact steps you need to take to really wow his family?
Theory Gabe B II Blazer
Ameena Syeda from  Postelio [], a cute app that lets you quickly ask friends and family for their fashion opinions while you're out shopping - all from your cell, shares these great tips:


No one will be a better judge of the in-law's judgment than your significant other. Ask him what his moms and sister's fashion sense is. Check out Facebook photos from past holidays. If they look like East Coast Blue Bloods, dress conservative. If they're total ex-Berkeley activists, try hippie chic and go vintage.

Bring one flowery dinner outfit, one semi-sexy outfit for a night on the town with your guy, and one laid back combo for that Sunday morning stroll with his mom. Tiny skirts are best left at home - because you don't want them to think you're Miley's doppelganger - and don't channel Lady Gaga with uncomfortable fashion ensembles that will just make Granny give you side eye.

Pack tons of great accessories, especially a statement necklace to glam up any normal outfit. Stella & Dot pieces, for example, can enrich any holiday outfit.


We know you can't bring your fashionable friends that weekend to help you find your perfect outfit. But you can send them your fashion selfies and ask them for advice. Postelio is the perfect app to quickly and discreetly ask your friends for fashion advice
