If you’re heading out on a date night with your other half or a new date, or for an evening out with friends, you want to make sure you look good.
You’ll want to plan your date night out to make sure that you look good, feel good and make the most impact. But, it can be tricky to combine just the right amount of va-va-voom and showing a bit of skin with the practicalities of wrapping up against the elements. That’s why we will give you ideas for the best winter date night outfits that are both warm and stylish.
What to consider when putting together your winter date night outfits
It might actually be easier than during summer
The first thing to do is to embrace winter dressing. It is easier to cover up the parts of your body you aren’t so keen on and show off what you do like. For example, you’re more likely to wear sleeves to cover up upper arms, long flattering layers or black, leg-slimming tights when the weather is cooler.
Don’t forgo comfort
If you feel cold and uncomfortable, you aren’t going to enjoy your date. So, keep your legs warm in a pair of opaque tights, and make sure you incorporate layers that you can wear indoors.
Wear a heel
If you love the look of heels but find them uncomfortable, date night could be the perfect time to wear them, if you’re heading out for a meal and will be sitting for most of the evening.

Opt for sumptuous fabrics for your winter date night outfits
Winter is a great time to think about the fabric you’re wearing and ensure it is tactile for date night. Think about silks, satins, velvet or faux fur.

Winter date night outfits ideas
Now, let’s take a look at some winter date night outfits incorporating some of the clothes you’re likely to have in your closet.
midi dress and a jacket
Midi dresses are particularly on trend right now. Add a pair of tights and wear with tall boots to ensure you look fabulous and stay warm.
a figure flattering dress and warm coat
A ruched dress will always be figure flattering. Look out for a coat that sits below the hemline of your dress.
blazer with jeans and long boots
It’s a good idea to ensure that you can comfortably leave your outerwear on if you want to when you get indoors, so a blazer is a great option.

A skirt and sweater and a pop of red lipstick
Wearing a formal skirt with a cozy sweater has been a trend for a few seasons, and definitely isn’t going anywhere this winter. Opt for an off-the-shoulder style for some subtle sex appeal, and wear a long coat so you stay warm getting to your date venue.

A long cozy cardigan
A long cardigan can be perfect for adding warmth and for creating long, lean lines which can have a slimming effect. The bold red, white and black of the outfit below will definitely make a statement.
A print dress and neutral accessories
You don’t have to opt for a bold color when it comes to your winter date night. You could choose an eye-catching print instead and choose a neutral coat, shoes and accessories.

Turtleneck dress to keep your neck warm
A turtleneck style is an ideal option for winter to ensure you stay cozy.

faux Fur and wide leg pants/jumpsuit
Rather than a dress, if you prefer to wear pants, you could choose a jumpsuit. To keep your shoulders warm and add extra glamour, look out for a cozy wrap.
Statement hosiery and your favorite little black dress
Of course, black opaque tights go with everything. But, what are particularly on-trend right now are patterned tights. Wear your new tights with your favorite black dress.
