7 Winter Date Night Trends to Help You Look Chic & Stay Cozy
Blog written by B-Six.
Date night during the winter can be challenging enough when you have the option of staying in wearing your matching PJ’s and ordering takeout (we’re not judging). And finding the perfect outfit for a winter date night is a whole other story. The biggest challenge is keeping the balance between looking cute while still staying warm and cozy. Remember, beauty does not have to equal pain - comfort is key, here!
We know that it can be a daunting task to dress up in the cold winter months without feeling like you have to dress down to still look chic and stylish. Just because it’s colder outside, doesn’t mean you have to forego your style or your relationship.
Depending on the date night activity, you’ll want to consider different things. For example, you might wear a different look to dinner and drinks downtown as opposed to ice skating in the park. But, no matter what you’ve got planned, we’ve got you covered!
Whether you’ve swiped right for a first date, or have a special evening of romance planned with your significant other, we’ve narrowed down this season’s 7 hottest date night trends that are so hot you’ll forget you’re out in the cold!
7 Date Night Trends That Will Keep You Stylish and Warm This Winter
1. Leather Pants
Leather pants have always been around, but they’ve never been hotter! From vegan to faux leather, and fitted to trouser-style, the leather pant options are endless! They’re as versatile as your favorite pair of jeans, and a great way to elevate your look while keeping warm! Pair these pants with an oversized coat, heeled booties, or chunky sweater. Dress them up or dress them down, your leather pants will surely catch your date’s eye!
2. Satin Set
Aside from your favorite pillowcase or hair tie, satin clothing is also trending off the charts right now. This silky smooth fabric is super easy to style and a great way to make your look extra polished and sexy. Satin can be worn many different ways, but if you really want to make a statement on date night, try out a satin pant suit. A matching set is always a great idea, and satin fabric will give it a sultry and sophisticated flare. If you’re looking to wear something with a pop of color this season, we recommend going with a jewel tone!
3. Knee High Boots
A girl can never have too many pairs of boots. Some may say knee-high boots have never gone out of style, but there’s no denying that they’re hotter than ever this year. From flat, to heeled, to leather, to suede, to cowboy - every style of boot is fair game this season. Knee-high boots make great date night footwear for when you want to wear a short dress or skirt, or want to accentuate your legs in a pair of tight jeans or leggings. Style these boots with a long coat or oversized blazer for the ultimate city girl date night look.
4. Cutout Sweater
The perfect way to show some skin on your next winter date night without having to give up warmth. Cutout sweaters are extremely popular right now for their ability to balance comfort and style. Worried about bra straps peeking out in a top like this? Throw on a pair of Nippies Skin so you won’t have to worry about it! They’ll provide all the coverage you need and keep any bra strap slip-ups from killing your date-night vibe.
5. Belted Coat
Add a long belted coat to your outfit for a warm and timeless date night look! Not only will it keep you warm and cozy as you walk around in the chilly winter air, it’s also a sleek and sophisticated addition to your cute outfit underneath. Long coats like these are great because they can be paired with dresses, pants, boots, sneakers, and everything in between! Adding a belt is a great way to accentuate your waist and add a bit of flare to your look if you’re feeling swallowed by your thick winter coat. Dressing for the cold is all about layering, and this is the perfect way to make your outerwear feel a little bit sexier this date night.
6. Backless Blouse
A backless top can be a great statement piece for a special occasion - perfect for a chilly date night where you want to show some skin without freezing your chest off. Backless long-sleeve tops are everywhere right now, and you can find them in all sorts of fabrics and colors. We love backless tops with a delicate tie at the small of the back for an added touch of elegance and detail. Style this top with a pair of jeans, trousers, or leather pants, and throw on a pair of Nippies Basics if you’re worried about more than just the nippy weather (pun intended).
7. Slip Dress
The 90s are back with these long simple slip dresses and Glamazon Diaries is KILLING IT with her slip dress. You may be thinking you’d never dare step out in the frigid winter air in a slip, but there are plenty of ways to style this trendy look with warmth in mind. Consider the fabric - if you don’t think a thin silk material will keep you warm enough, consider a thicker material like velvet. And, as we’ve mentioned before, winter looks are all about layering! Wear your slip dress over a long sleeve top or turtleneck for a ‘tank over tee’ look to keep with the 90s vibe. Or, wear a cardigan over your slip dress and adjust to meet your comfort needs.
We hope we’ve given you some helpful inspo for your next date night, and we commend you for even getting out of the house and planning something romantic! At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, your partner will be excited enough to spend some quality time with you this winter season. But, when you do decide to dress up, don’t forget to prioritize your comfort and layer, layer, layer!
