Because really, dad's have influenced your style, too, and this weekend is the perfect time to give them credit for it.

 1  Coleen Garcia

"My dad influenced me to be very laid-back in many ways, including dressing up. Through him, I learned that there is just as much beauty and character in simplicity as there is in all other kinds of personal style. I was always a bit boyish because I was around my dad, brothers, uncles, and male cousins my whole life, since I was the only girl. Although growing up and becoming a lady has brought on different changes in the way I act and dress, especially in front of cameras, I still haven't let go of the simplicity that makes me, me."

"My dad loves wearing navy blue and I think it rubbed off on me because it's my favorite color! Other than that, I'd like to think I'm the one who influences his style."

"Typical protective Dad, but he's supportive of my style choices and even lets me borrow pieces from his closet like a classic denim polo."

 4  Vern Enciso

"My dad's style has always been classic and he never goes overboard or tries trends blindly. He influenced me by abiding those principles when it comes to dressing up!"

 5  Gabs Gibbs


"He's very choosy with what he wears but he's also experimental. His main priority with his clothes is comfort. I think that's what I got from my dad. Style tip: Never underestimate your parents' wardrobe. It's the first place you should be looking for for one-of-a-kind treasured pieces!"

 6  Michelle Vito

 "My daddy always told me to wear comfortable clothes that I can move freely in and wear clothes that are appropriate to the place where I'm going."


 7  Verniece Enciso

"My dad is a type of person who's very protective of us. He always reminds us that how you present yourself is how people will respect you. He doesn't restrict us with how we dress up but he tells us not to be too showy. So I never forget to balance out what I wear!"
