5 Date-Night Outfit Ideas that Don't Involve a Dress
Yes, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. And yes, it’s still freakishly cold outside. So why claw yourself into a pair of tights and a lacy dress when you could rock a cozy winter uniform—and look cute doing it? Here, five ways to dress for date night without freezing your butt off.
SLOUCHY TURTLENECK + BOYFRIEND JEANS + VELVET PUMPS
Your favorite knit gets a date-worthy upgrade when paired with cropped jeans and ankle-strap heels or flats in a fresh color like moody blue or blush pink. Don’t forget to give your sweater a little front-tuck to add shape and define your waist.
Off-the-Shoulder Top + Cropped Jeans + Block Heels
Collarbones are having a moment and are a subtle way to show some skin without being too revealing. The key here is to keep your look monochromatic, so the eye is drawn up to that gorgeous mug.
Statement Earrings + Moto Jacket + High-Waisted Culottes
Dangling beaded earrings can dress up even the simplest of T-shirts. Styling tip: Toss a buttery leather jacket over the whole thing to complete the look, and layer it under your wool coat for extra warmth.
Bell-Sleeve Top + Raw-Edge Denim + Colorful Crossbody Bag
There’s a reason everyone is obsessing over these billowy sleeves. They’re ultra flattering and pair well with almost everything in your closet—especially your favorite pair of jeans. The look is fairly streamlined, so add a fun element with a your handbag.
Embellished Blouse + Black Skinnies + Draped Coat
OK, so you want to jazz things up a bit? Ground a sequined top by teaming it with your favorite black skinnies. Then, keep up that air of insouciance by draping your jacket over your shoulders. They’ll never know you actually put some thought into it.
