A stylish button-up shirt, in this case, would be a good choice to kick off your look.

Pastel Colors

Research indicates many people may determine whether they would like to know more about you or keep their distance only by the color of your outfit. For example, you might want to avoid wearing dark-toned outfits like Navy, Gray or Black. You may think dark outfits can show how serious you are. However, they can be too dominant or making a semi-casual meeting awkwardly too official.

When meeting with your partner’s parents, especially in warm seasons, pastel colors are great options to complete a lovable look for this special occasion.

Try a youthful and refreshing vintage-inspired dress in pastel yellow like Chinese actress Guli Nazha.
