Few situations are as panic-inducing as meeting your significant other’s parents for the first time. Not to fear, Zoe Reporters! We’ve put together a head-to-toe look (makeup included!) that is sure to make a chic lasting impression. Going home with your beau for the holidays? Take cues from this sophisticated ensemble, and you’ll knock it out of the park!
Get The Look
A modest-yet-chic dress—see: Joseph's jewel-toned treasure—is a sleek choice to wear when meeting the parents. Look for something that falls around knee-length in a universally flattering fabric.
In terms of footwear, aim for a safe heel height (4 inches or less) and a classic shape. These smooth leather booties fit the bill!
A long double-breasted coat, like this dapper wool option from French Connection, will polish off your look with sophistication.
Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipgloss
Make a sweet first impression in makeup that is pretty but not too over-the-top. Skip the bright red lipstick in favor of Revlon's Super Lustrous™ Lipgloss in Super Natural.
Opt for one statement jewelry piece a la this gorgeous gold collar to put a personal, glamorous spin on your outfit.
Revlon ColorStay™ Eyeliner
If you're craving a little bit of color, try Revlon's ColorStay™ Eyeliner in blackberry—it's the perfect fresh shade to brighten your eyes while not being distracting.
Revlon Colorstay™ Longerwear Nail Enamel
Your manicure is always a great place to sneak in a bold pop of color. Paint on a splash of this berry-hued polish for a youthful touch.
