Meeting your boy’s parents for the first time can be a bit intimidating and you want to make that first impression just right. These days, sarees and traditional salwar suits have become defunct. Kurta sans dupatta, smart dresses and fancy tops are making their way into this sphere too. So here are some great ideas on what to wear when meeting his parents the very first time!

1. A Pretty Kurta With Dainty Details!

Rose quartz and serenity blue are absolute favourites this season and that’s why wearing an outfit in similar pastel shades is a good decision. Ditch the orthodox salwar suits for this pretty combination of a long straight kurta and palazzos with delicate details. This is the better alternative to a run-of-the-mill option. Not only high on the fashion quotient, it will also make you gleam. You want all that shine, don’t you?

POPxo Recommends: Pink Embroidered Kurta & Palazzo (Rs 3,150)

2. A Bright Top With Muted Embellsihments

If you are a girl who loves to wear vibrant clothes, don’t hesitate to wear one of your brightest tops - just make sure the rest of the outfit isn’t too loud. This red top right here has a very clever neckline and with the white culottes and pumps, it looks like a classic combination that cannot go wrong. We promise!

POPxo Recommends: Red Embellished Blouse (Rs 750)

3. A Playful Kurti Is An Amazing Option!

Styling a short kurti can be a bit tricky, so choose one that is flattering but gives you that demure look at the same time. Nothing too revealing, but nothing too covered either. This kurti in a bright hue is just the perfect choice, we say. The asymmetrical hem adds a new dimension to a conventional kurti silhouette and the almost neon block print looks fresh.

POPxo Recommends: Green Printed Viscose Kurti (Rs 1,299)

4. For The Girl Who Loves Wearing Dresses!

Do you love wearing dresses all the time? When you are meeting the parents, you want to be a bit more careful about the dress you choose. The length has to be appropriate, the neckline should not be too wide, the back cannot be a cutout either. This gorgeous dress is just the perfect amalgamation of everything that will add to your charming persona. The silver heels, clutch and the ‘put together’ look is a sure-shot winner.

POPxo Recommends: Pink Solid Skater Dress (Rs 1,050)

5. A Gorgeous Off-beat Anarkali!

An anarkali seems like a suitable option when it comes to that first meeting. Nothing can really go wrong with it. An anarkali with some interesting detailing in an uncommon colour is the one to wear. This navy blue kurta with tie and dye sleeve and jacket attachments and worn with silver pumps is dreamy. Put on your favourite pair of danglers and you are set to win some hearts.

POPxo Recommends: Navy Blue Kurta (Rs 2,999)

6. A Bit Formal With the Skirts!

An unconventional garment to wear, a skirt is not the first thing that come to the mind. But imagine putting on this unconventional, coloured skirt with a nice printed top and those heels. It not only looks sophisticated but you’ll also feel at ease in this ensemble. It’s looks modish and is ultra-comfortable, and who wouldn’t want that when you are meeting the parents who are very eager to meet you?

POPxo Recommends: Mocha Knife Pleat Skirt (Rs 2,890)


Remember, whatever you choose, don’t worry so much about what ‘they’ would think. Wear what you are happy with and let the real you shine!
