Dresses have the power to make you feel like the prettiest girl in the room, so don't be afraid of slipping on your favorite one! A nice touch: Wear your favorite necklace or earrings, and his mom won't be able to stop raving about how put-together you look. Accessories are easy conversation starters, too.
Jeans, Dorothy Perkins
Silk tops are our new favorite sandos, because they dress up even your rattiest jeans! You can tuck it inside jeans or a pencil skirt, and look fab.
