Annoying but true fact: dad knows best. Exhibit A: if you would just smile, no one would notice that pimple. Exhibit B: your prom date really didn’t have good intentions. But when it comes to fashion, well, sometimes things get a little lost in translation. (Can you really expect him to understand your ombre hair phase?)
So in honor of Father’s Day, we’re throwing a tweetstakes from Wednesday to Friday so you can share all of dad’s style gems—the dead on, and the dead wrong. Starting tomorrow at 9:30AM, look for our daily question on Twitter, reply with #ruedads before 4PM ET, and you’ll be entered to win $100 in Rue Credit. We’ll announce a new winner every day.
Ready? Just make sure you’re following us @RueLaLa. Good luck! And for full terms and conditions, click below.
