Whether you're celebrating Easter or Passover this month or just hanging with fam for one reason or another, here are some ideas on how to dress conservatively chic (a.k.a. grandma/auntie/mother-in-law-approved) without resorting to your everyday jeans and sweaters.
Pencil skirt in floral print, $60, asos.com
Pencil skirts don't have to be synonymous with 9-to-5 dressing. A fun, floral print adds a tinge of flirtiness to an otherwise sophisticated silhouette. Since the skirt is loud enough, I'd pair this style with nude kitten heels (and save my sky-highs for girls night!).

If, like me, you tend to eat a lot during family get-togethers, try a loose-fitting dress that won't make you uncomfortable all night. Pick a solid color and add fun accessories like a long chain necklace and a few stacked bracelets. P.S. If you think the slouchy fit is not dressy enough, try a thin, not-too-tight belt.

If showing some leg isn't exactly your thing, try a pair of glam trousers. Parents love this trend, I tell ya. Wear them with a silky button-down and low-heeled pumps or jazzy flats even.

Have a daytime dress or top in your closet that you're dying to wear, but the neck is too low, or the straps are too skinny, or it's backless? Opt for a light-color blazer to make the look fam-friendly.
