Trying to impress a pair of parentals is a unique challenge and thus requires an appropriately singular sartorial strategy. Conversation starters in the form of an unusual knit, a cool print, or a shoe with a touch of sparkle are key. And obviously, avoid anything too-short, too-tight, or too-weird, unless you’re the lucky kid dating the child of ex-rockstars. So, click through and get playful with classic pieces for guaranteed positive attention, while still leaving room for your XL personality. Now don’t forget to smile — and breathe.
